Grizzlies slowed by Express, Clippers

Third period dry spells cost the Victoria Grizzlies a pair of wins on the weekend.

Last Friday saw the Grizzlies lose 4-2 to the Nanaimo Clippers, in Nanaimo. Blake Thompson and Leo Fitzgerald scored for the Grizz. The game entered the third period tied 2-2, but the Grizzlies couldn’t match the Clippers, as the latter potted two more goals for the win. On Saturday, the Grizzlies returned home against the Coquitlam Express. Dante Hahn and Justin Polischuk each scored for the Grizz, but once again the third period started tied 2-2. The Express won when Callum Hofford scored a powerplay goal.

Next is the Salmon Arm Silverbacks, Friday night (Oct. 5) at Bear Mountain Arena, 7:15 p.m.
