BCHL: Bulldogs best Salmon Arm at home

Bulldogs face Powell River in Sunday matinee Jan. 20; puck drop is 2 p.m.

Keaton Mastrodonato scored his second goal of the game with less than five minutes to go in the third period to give the Alberni Valley Bulldogs a 6–3 win over Salmon Arm on Friday.

The Bulldogs ended the second period with a crucial goal by Ryan Miotto in the waning seconds of the period that put them up 3–2. Salmon Arm tied it up at 9:12 of the third, but Mastrodonato potted the winner at 15:11. Evan Googins scored an insurance goal for the Bulldogs at 16:47.

The Bulldogs’ final goal came at 19:52 after Stephen Castagna was hauled down on a breakaway. Because the Silverbacks’ net was empty, Castagna was automatically awarded a goal.

The win snapped a three-game losing streak for the Bulldogs.

The Bulldogs face Powell River Kings at 2 p.m. today (Jan. 20) at the AV Multiplex. Tickets are available at the Bulldogs’ office outside the main entrance to the Multiplex.
