The Victoria Cougars are set to take on their Vancouver Island rivals, the Comox Valley Glacier Kings, in the first of their four-game homestand this week.

Thursday, marks the second of four meetings between the Cougars and the Glacier Kings with Comox Valley leading the series, after a 4-3 hometown victory in September.

The Cougars will return home after playing their last two on the road.

On Saturday, the Cougars capped off a stretch of three games in three nights with a 4-1 win over the hometown Oceanside Generals.

Owen Dalman scored twice for Victoria while Jake Calverley and Nick Gomerich each added singles.

The Cougars began their three-in-three set last Thursday by defeating the visiting Kerry Park Islanders 4-3 in overtime. That win was quickly followed by a discouraging 6-5 double overtime loss to the Braves in Saanich last Friday.

The Cougars will take on the Glacier Kings on Thursday, Oct. 20. Puck drop at the Archie Browning Sports Centre (1151 Esquimalt Rd.) is at 7 p.m.
