BCHL: Bulldogs top the Capitals at home

Alberni Valley Bulldogs earn a 6-3 win against the Cowichan Valley Capitals

The Alberni Valley Bulldogs came away with a decisive 6-3 win during a game against the Cowichan Valley Capitals at Weyerhaeuser Arena on Wednesday, Nov. 1.

The game looked like it would be a high-scoring affair, with both teams tied 3-3 after the first period.

But the next two periods were all Bulldogs, with defenceman Mitch Oliver netting a powerplay goal in the second, followed by two goals in the third by defenceman Darren Rizzolo and forward Bradley Ong.

Oliver and forward Jackson Doucet had three points each. The ‘Dogs scored three powerplay goals overall, and goaltender John Hawthorne made 34 saves.

It was a bounce-back win for the Bulldogs, as the team took three tough losses on the road last weekend against Penticton, Wenatchee and Langley.

They will be back at Weyerhaeuser on Saturday, Nov. 4 for a game against the Merrit Centennials. Puck drop is at 7 p.m.
