The Victoria Cougars only have a handful of games left before the much-needed Christmas break.

The Cougars (21-7-0-3) begin a stretch of three games in three nights this Wednesday (today) when they pay the Westshore Wolves a visit.

Following that matchup, the Cougars will return home Thursday to face the Kerry Park Islanders before ending on the road Friday against the Comox Valley Glacier Kings.

Following Friday’s tilt, the South Island Division leading Cougars will have 19 days off until their next game.

Victoria is coming off a 7-2 win over the Peninsula Panthers last Friday. The game extended the Cougars win streak to three games.

Tyler Pang scored twice while Jordan Passmore, Akila Sato-Gaudreau, Kenny Britton, Avery Hill, and Grayden Hohl each added singles. Getting the win in net was Liam McCloskey who turned aside 19 shots.

Victoria’s last loss, a 5-4 decision, was to Westshore.

The team’s next game is not until Thursday, Jan. 5, when it hosts the Panthers for its first game back after the Christmas break.
