BC Hockey Juvenile Championships Game Updates

Game twelve and by far the ugliest game in the Round Robin saw the Seafair Islanders who were 1-1-1 against the 0-3 Winfield Bruins.

The Bruins start the game in a vicious bear like attack and wire a shot past net minder #1 Tyson Leblanc at 17:26 of the first period.  Winfield sat in the driver's seat for the first time in the Tournament until Seafair ties the game on a 4 on 4 at the 4:59 mark of the first.  The Islanders would add two more before the end of the period to head into the second period with a two goal lead.

Winfield's penalty woes continued with several 'hit to the head' penalties being assessed. The Bruins, not shying away from laying some heavy hits. They found the Islanders all too eager to accommodate them. Winfield continued to display their 'Bruinesque' fortitude early in the third period regardless of the 5-1 deficit they were facing.  After some heated exchanges, Winfield would score on a power play to inch the score 5-2.

Seafair with a great breakaway would score at the 12:11 mark of the third to make it 6-2. Fifty-four seconds later, Seafair would fire a bullet into the net to ease their lead to 7-2.  The game would take a downward spiral at the 9:26 mark. A nasty hit by a Seafair player would cause a trickle down effect resulting in several players being penalized and ejected from the game.

The Islanders would go on to win the game with a score of 9 - 2, ending day 3 with a preverbal BANG.
