Bulldogs beaten by Clippers at home opener

The Bulldogs lost to the Nanaimo Clippers with a final score of 3-0 at the home opener on Friday, Sept 13.

The Wayerhaeuser Arena at the Alberni Valley Multiplex was busy with Alberni Valley Bulldogs fans last night for the team’s home opener on Friday, Sept. 16.

The Bulldogs lost to the Nanaimo Clippers with a final score of 3-0.

“Certainly isn’t the outcome that we wanted last night,” said Bulldogs’ head coach Kevin Willison.  “I thought overall they played a good game. It’s unfortunate that we couldn’t sneak one in to build a little confidence.”

Vincent Millette scored the first goal for the Clippers at 3:34 minutes into the second period. Tristan Crozier scored the Clippers’ second goal with an assist from Jamie Collins 10:11 minutes into the third period and Ben Solin scored the game’s final goal at 19:21 minutes.

“I give Nanaimo a lot of credit, they played a greasy road game,” Willison said. “We certainly don’t want teams to think it’s going to be an easy place to play and last night I thought that we made it easy for Nanaimo.”

The Clippers had a total of 34 shots on goal during last night’s game and the Bulldogs had 25.

“I thought that overall it was a good team effort,” Willison said. “Nobody really stood out, nobody really took the bull by the horn and set that pace…hopefully we can certainly do better here tonight  with a little more urgency in our game. Obviously it’s about creating scoring opportunities and I don’t think we had enough pucks to the net.”

Tonight’s game begins at 7 p.m. at the Wayerhaeuser Arena against the Penticton Vees.
