Alberni midget Bulldogs go for Island championship brass

The Van Isle Ford Midget Bulldogs advanced to the Vancouver Island Championship with a 7-4 victory in their semi-final game against the Saanich Braves.

Saanich held a 3-2 lead until the middle of the frame.  The turning point came near the middle of the period when goalie Gianni Crema stoned a Saanich breakaway attempt.  Then at 10:58 Tyler Wilhelm scored.

Alberni stormed back to score five unanswered goals to make it 7-3.

Saanich netted one more to make it 7-4 but that was it.

Alberni will now take on Powell River in the best of three championship series.

The first game will be at 1:45 p.m. Saturday Feb. 25 at the Alberni Valley Multiplex.

Powell River downed the Grizzlies 5-2 in the other semi-final on Saturday.
