Bulldogs Keep Rolling

The Alberni Valley Bulldogs pushed their winning streak to four straight on Saturday night with a 4-1 win in front of 1234 fans at the Alberni Valley Multiplex.

For the second straight night it was a dominating 1st period that set the tone for the night.  After allowing the Clippers just 2 shots in the opening frame on Friday, the Bulldogs outshot Wenatchee 19-7 in the 1st period and led 1-0 thanks to Dakota MacIntosh’s 6th of the season.

In the 2nd period the Bulldogs pushed their lead to 2-0 as Brandon Buhr scored his 3rd goal since returning to the line-up as he made no mistake shooting on a 2-on-1 rush at 3:48 of the 2nd.  The Wild would get that one back as Parker Murray scored his 17th at 15:26 on a shot that goalie Hobie Hedquist would like to have a mulligan on.

The Bulldogs put the game away just 16 seconds into the 3rd period as Ethan Bono banged home a loose puck in the crease for his 11th of the season to make 3-1.  Cam VanSickle rounded out the scoring at 10:05 as he beat Andy Vlaha for a shorthanded goal.  The goal was a BCHL leading 8th shorthanded goal for the Bulldogs as a team.

Hobie Hedquist earned 2nd star honours as he stopped 29 of 30 for the win in goal.  The win was Hedquist’s 12 of the year. The final shots on goal favoured the Bulldogs by a 38-30 count.

With 1 goal and 1 assist, Brandon Buhr was named the games 1st star.  You can’t help but feel that Buhr is starting to get warmed up as he adjusts back to life in junior hockey. Buhr finished the weekend with 2 goals and 2 assists.

Both clubs went 0 for 4 with man-advantage on the evening.

The Bulldogs will look to stay red-hot as they host a pair of lower mainland foes next weekend.  On Friday the Langley Rivermen visit the Dawg Pound before the Surrey Eagles visit on Saturday.  Tickets for both games can be purchased by CLICKING HERE.
