The Alberni Valley Peewee A Bulldogs took their first big road trip of the season last weekend and brought home silver medals from a tournament held in Salmon Arm.

Alberni’s first action came on Friday afternoon against Abbotsford. Alberni came out strong and held a 3–1 lead after the first period. The second period was evenly matched with no scoring.

Abbotsford made it 3-2 early in the third period but that was as close as they would get as Alberni notched four unanswered goals in the third to win 7–2. Colton Lloyd and Austin Marling each had five-point games with two goals and an assist apiece. Wyatt Selva scored twice and Jayden Moss once.

Alberni’s second game of the weekend was also a close affair with a 1–1 game on the scoreboard until the third period, when the Bulldogs opened up again with three unanswered goals.

Colton Lloyd and Ayden Brossoit each scored twice in the 4–1 victory over the Williams Lake Timberwolves.

Alberni dominated the Westside Warriors in their third round robin game, holding a 2–0 lead at the end of the first and 4–0 lead at the second intermission enroute to a decisive 8–1 victory.

Westside was previously unbeaten.

Shaylee McConnell and Colton Lloyd each scored twice. Wyatt Selva, Austin Marling, Nick Sexton and Ezra Paddock also contributed goals in the winning effort.

Alberni finished first in round robin play and earned a trip to the gold medal game, where they met a strong team from Mission.

Mission came out firing on all cylinders and Alberni found themselves down on the scoreboard for the first time in the tournament, 3–0 at the end of the first period.

The peewee ’Dogs battled back, finding the back of the net three times before Mission put the game out of reach, winning 6–3. Alberni goals were scored by Ayden Brossoit, Nico Somerville and Foster Martin.

The Alberni Peewee A team will enjoy a weekend off before resuming Island League play in the Weyerhaeuser Arena versus Powell River on Sunday, Nov. 20.
