Grizzlies split weekend home-and-home with Bulldogs

Both BCHL teams steal a win in each other's building

The Victoria Grizzlies were on opposite ends of identical scores last weekend against Alberni Valley in B.C. Hockey League play.

The Grizzlies (3-2-0-1) beat the Bulldogs 4-3 in Port Alberni on Saturday, one night after the visitors scored a 4-3 overtime decision at The Q Centre.

The results left the Grizzlies in second place in the Island Division, one point back of the Nanaimo Clippers (4-3) entering this week’s play.

In Port Alberni, Victoria erased a 3-2 Alberni lead with  a pair of shorthanded goals in the third by Jay Mackie and P.J. Conlon.

The teams were tied 2-2 after one period.

Cody van Lierop and Shawn McBride also scored in the win.

Alberni’s Josh Adkins scored 43 seconds into double overtime in Colwood to give the Bulldogs the win on Friday.
