Bulldogs split back to back home games with the Powell River Kings

3-1 win over Powell River

After a scoreless first period, defenseman Tim Gould opened the scoring at 16:36 of the second period. Back to back goals from forward Jackson Doucet followed in the span of the next 17 seconds. The Kings got their only goal from defenseman Jack Long at 18:02 of the second period. With the Bulldogs up 3-1 after 40, the game ended that way in favour of Alberni Valley.

6-5 loss to Powell River

The Bulldogs opened the scoring at 9:19 of the first period on a goal from forward Caige Sterzer. The Kings took a 2-1 lead into the second period after goals from forwards Rowan Miller and Brett Roloson.

The Kings came out firing in the second period with goals from Jacob Badal, Levi Glasman and Jack Brackett to make the score 5-1 for the visitors. A goal from Dawson Tritt before the end of the second period made the score marginally more respectable for the Bulldogs.

A power play goal from Josh Zary followed by Tritt’s second goal at even strength would pull the Bulldogs within a goal and it was 5-4 Powell River. Badal extended the Kings lead to a two goal cushion with his second of the night. The Bulldogs pulled to within one goal on Zary’s second power play marker, but it was too little too late because the Kings went on to win 6-5.

The Bulldogs next game is Friday in Salmon Arm.
