A fundraiser has been set up for this Friday, March 7 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Alberni Cap-It, in the Alberni Toyota complex. The teams are holding a joint bottle drive, hot dog sale, car wash and bake sale.

The Bantam A Bulldogs travelled to Oak Bay last Saturday to play their second playoff game, which they won 10-2. Alberni scoring was led by Connor Sabiston, who posted a hat trick.

Seven other Bulldogs players contributed to the offensive effort as well, team manager Stefanie Weber said.

The Bantam As head to West Kelowna March 16–21 for the Tier 3 finals.

The Bantam B Bulldogs have a bye into the Tier 4 provincial championship in Windermere later this month.

The Midget As earned their provincial berth last weekend with a pair of home-and-home 6-2 victories over Sooke.
