BCHL: Bulldogs take first of two against Kings

The Alberni Valley Bulldogs face a rematch against the Kings on Sunday

The Bulldogs took back the pound on Saturday night with a 5-4 win against the Powell River Kings in front of more than 1,000 fans.

The first forty minutes were quiet, with only two goals scored by the Bulldogs: first by Keaton Mastrodonato, assisted by Jackson Doucet and Sami Phararon, followed by a second period powerplay goal by Mitch Oliver, assisted by Paul Selleck and Cole Poliziani.

Seven goals were scored in the third period, with both teams going back and forth. Bulldogs Sami Pharaon, Spencer Hora and Cole Poliziani all got on the scoreboard while Ethan Kimball and Neal Samanski added one each and Carter Turnbull added two more for the Kings. In the end, the Bulldogs came away victorious.

John Hawthorne kicked away 35 of 39 shots he faced. Poliziani was named first star, Mastrodonato was named second star and Hora was named first star.

The Bulldogs are back in action today (Sunday, Feb. 25), facing a rematch with the Powell River Kings for their final home game of the regular season. The game starts at 2:00p.m.

The Bulldogs will also be holding a free post-game skate at 4:30 p.m., sponsored by Catalyst.
