It was a busy weekend on the ice for two of the West Shore’s hockey teams.
The Victoria Grizzlies kicked things off winning back-to-back games during the sixth annual Bauer British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) Showcase in Chilliwack over the weekend.
First up, the Grizzlies faced off against the Prince George Spruce Kings. Despite being out shot 41-22, goaltender Zachary Rose tallied his first shut out of the season as the Grizzlies sailed to a 5-0 victory.
It was also a special game for head coach Craig Didmon, who recorded his 100th regular season win.
On Sunday, the Grizzlies continued their winning streak against the Coquitlam Express. Despite falling behind early, the Grizzlies clawed their way back to a 4-2 victory. The Grizzlies currently sit third in the Island division with a record of 4-2-0.
The Grizzlies notched four points this weekend at the BCHL showcase. Local fans get to catch the team in action during their home opener at The Q Centre on Friday, Sept. 29 versus the Vernon Vipers, and Saturday, Sept. 30 versus the Langley Rivermen.
In Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League action, the Westshore Wolves won both their games last week. After a close 4-2 win over the Campbell River Storm last Wednesday, the Wolves also defeated the Victoria Cougars 6-3 at Archie Browning Arena on Thursday.
The Wolves are currently in first place in the south division with a record of 3-2-0.
