The Alberni Valley Bulldogs managed to pick up one win in Langley, but they will return to the Dawg Pound on the brink of elimination as the Rivermen took a 3-1 series lead in the BCHL’s Coastal Conference semi-finals.
Bulldogs goaltender Hobie Hedquist earned first star honours on Tuesday, April 19 as he made 34 saves in a 2-0 shutout in Game 3 against the Langley Rivermen. Bulldogs goals came from Stephen Castagna and Brandon Buhr.
Wednesday’s game was a wild one, as it went to triple overtime to decide a winner. But it was Langley’s Max Dukovac who scored the game-winner at the 0:58 second mark of the third overtime, securing a 3-2 win for the home team and a 3-1 series lead.
Game 5 will take place at the Alberni Valley Multiplex on Friday, April 22. Puck drop is at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at the Bulldogs office or online at www.albernivalleybulldogs.ca.
