Grizzlies inch closer to second in BCHL Island Division

Rare tie keeps team undefeated under replacement coach Didmon

Four-on-four and three-on-three overtime solved nothing for the Victoria Grizzlies and Cowichan Valley Capitals on Tuesday at The Q Centre, leaving the B.C. Hockey League teams to settle for a 2-2 tie.

Jay Mackie’s third-period power play goal for the locals, set up by Meirs Moore, knotted the score at two apiece. The goaltenders went to work after that, shutting down all shooters.

Grizzlies leading scorer Dane Gibson, who came over from the Capitals organization to start the season, opened scoring in the first with his 12th of the year.

Cowichan scored twice on Victoria goalie Sean Cleary in the second.

The Grizzlies’ (14-10-1-7) first tie of the season left them one point back of second-place Powell River with a game in hand, although the Kings play Alberni Valley Bulldogs tonight in Port Alberni.

The Grizzlies, still undefeated in four games under head coach Craig Didmon, leave tomorrow for a three-game weekend road trip on the Lower Mainland with games against Coquitlam, Langley and Surrey.
