Day 3 of BC Hockey Juvenile Championships


Day 3 of the BC Hockey Juvenile Championships started off with the Winfield Bruins facing off against the Nanaimo Clippers. This was undoubtedly the battle of the Province.

The Mighty Bruins drew blood first at 17:36 of the first period. Both teams played a very non physical game but displayed great stick and puck work and kept the game fairly fast paced.  While still full of energy, it paled it comparison to the Surrey/Seafair game the night prior. Winfield would score a short-handed goal at 11:31 to make it 2-0. 

After a terrible bounce off a Winfield defender, Nanaimo would get their first goal of the game at 10:55 of the first. Nanaimo quick with the momentum kept the pressure going in the Winfield zone and would tie the game at 6:55 short handed. Both teams having great scoring opportunities and having goalies that were helping to keep the game tight.

Both Winfield and Nanaimo have played the first period with passion and determination that displays the true heart of the inner hockey player. Winfield would score on a power play with 2.9 seconds left on the clock to make it 3-2 going into the second period.

#13 of the Bruins would pick up his own rebound at 11:55 to extend their lead to 4-2. Winfield would find themselves back in the familiar penalty box repeatedly during the game giving Nanaimo a power play goal at 8:55 of the second period to make it 5-3.

The battle pressed onwards with several 'hit to the head' penalties taken for both Nanaimo and Winfield. Penalties would prove extremely costly to Nanaimo as they drop another hard game 9-4.
