The Westshore Wolves carry a two-game winning streak into Wednesday night’s (Sept. 30) Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League game against Peninsula at The Q Centre.
Nicholas Polomark converted a Branden Tangney pass 2:32 into overtime for his second goal of the game, giving the Wolves a 4-3 win over the Buccaneers in Nanaimo on Thursday.
The visitors fell behind 2-1 after one period, but quickly took the lead in the second, when Polomark, at the 1:36 mark, and Kayden Peck, 3:20 in, made it 3-2 Wolves.
Zack Funk tied it up for the locals early in the third, as the Bucs did their best to notch the winner. Nanaimo limited Westshore to just two shots in the period.
Wolves’ starter Leighton Williams turned aside 20 of 22 shots before being replaced by back Chris Smith late in the second.
Tangney finished with three points on the night, scoring once and adding two assists. Peck also recorded an assist while Tyson Malloch had two helpers.
Mitch Popp and Tyler Graham also scored for Nanaimo.
The win came one night after the Wolves posted their first victory of the young season, 2-1 over the Kerry Park Islanders at The Q Centre.
Tanner Sidaway scored both goals in that one, each coming in the second period.
Williams, who stopped 26 of 27 shots, had his bid for a shutout spoiled with less than six minutes to go in the third, when Lynden Eddy scored on the power play for the Islanders.
Tomorrow’s Wolves-Panthers game in Colwood goes at 7 p.m.
