The Van Isle Ford Midget Bulldogs locked up first place in the North Island division of their playoff series by defeating the Tyees 5-3 on Feb. 12 in Campbell River.

The Bulldogs will now move on to the Vancouver Island semi-final with home ice advantage against Peninsula Eagles.

Oceanside will travel to Bear Mountain to meet Juan de Fuca in the other semi.

Saturday’s tilt was a grinder game with neither side able to gain the upper hand early.

The Bulldogs scored the winning goal at 13:25 of the third period when Lim found a loose puck in the slot, faked a shot and then scored through the five hole before the goalie could recover.

The semi-final game against Peninsula will be at Weyerhaeuser Arena at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 20.

This is a single game knockout, so come out and make some noise for the home team.
