The Van Isle Ford Midget Bulldogs shook off the rust to post a 5-3 win over the Oceanside General and advance to the Island semi-finals.

The Generals dominated physically in the first period but Alberni’s Beau Wilson woke Alberni up, scoring the team’s first goal at 7:54.

Oceanside evened it up at the start of the second period but Alberni inched ahead with a goal of its own.

The Generals tied it up then went ahead 3-2 in the third period after a series of Alberni penalties.

Alberni’s Colby Lim tied it with three minutes left in the third period. Cory Beecroft notched the go-ahead goal and Lim added an empty netter to seal the win.

Alberni advances to the Island semi-final against either Saanich or Juan de Fuca. The next playoff game’s in Powell River.
