The Alberni Valley Bulldogs look to extend their winning streak this Friday, Jan. 28 at home against Victoria Grizzlies after breaking Nanaimo Clippers’ four-game streak last Tuesday with a 4-0 shutout.

Lars Hepso scored the winning goal at 10:09 of the first period.

The Bulldogs held Nanaimo to just two shots in the second period while scoring twice on the power play to take a commanding 3-0 lead.

Brandon Adams scored the ‘Dogs’ fourth goal at 6:20 of the third period.

The Bulldogs will be looking to avenge a 3-2 loss in Victoria on Jan. 18 when the puck drops Friday (7 p.m. at Weyerhaeuser Arena). They’ll have one day off before hosting Penticton Vees on Sunday at 2 p.m.

Spring camp time

The Bulldogs will have their annual spring camps in April for bantams (14-15 years old) and juniors (16-20 years).

The Port Alberni camp will take place April 1-3 at the AV Multiplex, and the Okanagan camp will be April 15-17 in Osoyoos at the Sunbowl Arena.

Admission into the camps is $185 and will be offered to all interested in attending until the camps are full.

The camps are an opportunity for players to show off their skills to the Bulldogs’ scouts and staff in hopes of getting an invitation to the Bulldogs’ main camp in August 2011.

The camps will include practices, fitness testing, goalie sessions, evaluations, presentations and games.
