Playoff Wrap-up – March 12

VIJHL Playoff Summary – March 12 – Round Two

Nanaimo 2 Victoria 1

Jory Swanson scored a late one (16:38) to give the Buccaneers a 1-0 series lead in round 2 of the VIJHL playoffs

The consensus from the Victoria side was as their Head Coach Suneil Karod stated in the Cougars’ post game show, “The better team won tonight.”

Zackary Evans opened the scoring at 10:12 of the second and the Bucs were up 1-0. Moments later, the VIJHL’s top defenceman Kevan McBean leveled the score.

The goaltending was exactly what you’d expect with Blake Wood at one end and Owen Sikkes at the other end. Shots on goals were 38-31 Bucs.

Game 2 is at the Archie Browning Arena on Thursday night (7pm).
