Bulldogs drop Saturday road game to Caps

Evan Googins scored and added an assist on Saturday night in Duncan, but Brady Lynn’s third period goal stood up as the winner in a 3-2 defeat to the Cowichan Valley Capitals.

Googins opened the scoring early in the game when he blasted a wrist shot over the right shoulder of Capitals netminder Jack Grant, but the Caps drew even minutes later when Dimitri Mikrogiannakis slammed home a one-timer goal on a Cowichan power play.

The Caps took the lead on another man-advantage goal in the third period as Cruz Cote pounced on a rebound but it took only 12 seconds for Alberni to equalize as Googins won an offensive zone draw forward and pushed the puck over to Dawson Tritt for a tap-in. Lynn put Cowichan back in front with nine minutes left in regulation and the Bulldogs had a few Grade A chances late including a Mitch Deelstra breakaway attempt that was sent wide.

Demers was strong in goal once more with a 35-save performance.

The Bulldogs wrap up the regular season on Sunday at home to Powell River. Faceoff is set for 2:00 PM.
