Midget Alberni Bulldogs road warriors

It's been a whirlwind for the Van Isle Ford Alberni Valley Midget Bulldogs, who played Nanaimo, Cowichan and others in the last few weeks.

The Van Isle Ford Alberni Valley Midget Bulldogs continued league play on Dec. 7, hosting Nanaimo’s Tier One team.

It was a disciplined team effort and the Midget Bulldogs came away with a well deserved 5 – 3 win. With five goals from five different players; Ethan Sundstrum opened the scoring assisted by Keagun Selva. The next three goals came in a minute and a half. James McLeod scored, assisted by Sundstrum and Codie Beecroft, then Beecroft scored, assisted by Blake Sexton and Logan Henson, next  Josh Harvey scored unassisted.

With two seconds left in the game Dave Friel sealed the win with an unassisted goal.

“This is our team’s first league win of the season.  We have had many one goal losses, but the boys worked very hard to get this win,” coach Korey Sundstrum said.  “We had three key players out for this game which has been tough but the boys were disciplined in this game and it paid off.”

This weekend, the Midget Bulldogs travel to travel to Peninsula for an exhibition game on Saturday, and then to Duncan to Play Cowichan Tier One for another league game on Sunday.
