BCHL’s Grizzlies go west after weekend losses at home

Thursday game in Port Alberni and Saturday game back home versus Nanaimo precede Christmas break

The Victoria Grizzlies take their show on the road to Port Alberni on Thursday (Dec. 17)  after losing two at home last weekend.

Then it’s back home to The Q Centre against Nanaimo on Saturday for the team’s final B.C. Hockey League game before the Christmas break. Game time is 7 p.m.

Sunday’s action at The Q Centre saw Grizzlies defenceman Kevin Massy score twice in a losing effort as his team fell 5-3 to the West Kelowna Warriors. The visitors held period leads of 3-1 and 5-2, while outshooting the Grizzlies 34-31.

Keyvan Mokhtari also tallied for Victoria, while Mitchell Barker had two assists.

On Saturday in Colwood, the expansion Wenatchee Wild outshot the Grizzlies 32-22 in a 2-0 victory. Chase Perry proved unbeatable in the Wild net, while goals from August von Ungern in the first and second period provided all the offence the visitors needed for the win.
