BCHL: Alberni Valley Bulldogs fall to Grizzlies

Home team unable to hold onto the lead

Despite starting with a lead, the Alberni Valley Bulldogs fell to Island rivals the Victoria Grizzlies in a Friday night matchup at home.

Friday’s game saw forward Ryan Moon join the Bulldogs lineup for the first time, but team points leader Ryan Miotto is now out with an injury.

Bulldogs foward Mackenzie Wight opened scoring late in the first, with a goal assisted by Stephen Castagna and Moon. Forward Dawson Tritt added to the lead with a shorthanded goal early in the second, assisted by Grayson Valente.

But the Grizzlies clawed back, netting three unanswered goals in the second, followed by four more goals in the third to take the 7-2 win.

The Bulldogs will try to regroup for a doubleheader in Powell River on Friday, Nov. 30 and Saturday, Dec. 1. They will take on the Coquitlam Express in front of the home crowd on Sunday, Dec. 2. Puck drop is at 2 p.m.
