The Alberni Valley Bulldogs have fallen behind the Nanaimo Clippers with a 3-2 loss in the first round of the BCHL playoffs on March 8.

The Clippers pulled ahead in the first period with Yanni Kaldis scoring the first goal of the game seven minutes in and Devin Brosseau making it 2-0 at 11:37 with assists from Yanni Kaldis and Sheldon Rempal.

The Dogs began to even out the score with five minutes to go in the first period with a goal by Tristan Bukovec assisted by Jordan Sandhu and Owen Johnson.

The second period was scoreless for both teams and so was the first half of the third until the Dogs’ Rhett Willcox evened out the score with assist from Nathan Dingmann and Dominic Thom.

The Clippers won the game with a final goal at 14 minutes into overtime.

Speaking after the game, Bulldogs head coach Kevin Willison said he wished the Dogs had taken advantage of their opportunities.

“We had our opportunities and it could have gone either way,” said Willison. “They had the last laugh and created the opportunity they needed.”

Looking ahead to tomorrow’s (March 9) game, Willison said that the team needs to work on it’s powerplay.

“Our penalty kill has been great but our power play has been a bit of a flicker and that’s got to light us up.”

The Bulldogs face the Clippers in game four of the first round of BCHL playoffs tomorrow (March 9) at the AV Multiplex. Puck drops at 7 p.m.
