Wolves being eaten up by defending Jr. B champion Cougars in south final

Game 4 goes tonight at the Juan de Fuca Arena in Colwood

It’s been tough slugging for the Westshore Wolves in the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League’s South Division final.

The Wolves, who finished a solid second behind the Victoria Cougars in the regular season, have dropped the first three games of the teams’ best-of-seven series, by a combined score of 20-3.

Sunday’s game 3 saw the Cougars pound the Wolves 8-2 at the Archie Browning Sports Centre in Esquimalt. Westshore’s Clay Carson opened the scoring 3:03 into the first period, but it was all Cougars after that.

Victoria opened up period leads of 2-1 and 4-1 en route to the victory. Connor Krupa scored unassisted in the third for Westshore’s other goal. Eight different players scored for Victoria.

The Cougars can take a step toward their third straight VIJHL playoff title with a win tonight (March 10) at the Juan de Fuca Arena. The Wolves were bumped from their usual home at The Q Centre by the scheduled B.C. Hockey League game between the Victoria Grizzlies and Powell River Kings. Game time at JdF is 7 p.m.

Previous games in the Jr. B series saw the Cougars down the Wolves 4-0 at The Q Centre on Saturday night and 8-1 in the opener last Thursday in Esquimalt.
