The Alberni Valley Bulldogs came home from their first long road trip of the year with a tie, a win and a loss.

“Overall it was a good trip,” head coach Kevin Willison said.

The Bulldogs travelled over the border to Wenatchee, Wash. where they tied the Wild 3–3.

They beat Langley 4-1 the next night but dropped their final game 3–2 in Chilliwack.

“For our first time playing in the US, I thought it was a well-played game, Willison said.

“It was well executed by both teams. We were happy to get a point there at the start of our trip.”

Nathan Dingmann had two goals and two assists for three points in the 3-3 tie with Wenatchee. Jordan Sandhu scored two goals and Garrett Halls had three assists on the weekend.

The Bulldogs’ home-and-home series against Nanaimo will be a good one, Willison said. They play Nanaimo at the Dawg Pound on Halloween night.
