Glacier Kings ice Cougars streak

Junior B Cougars look to regain winning ways with home-and-home against Saanich Braves

Last week (Oct. 20), the Comox Valley Glacier Kings defeated the Victoria Cougars 5-3 at Archie Browning Sports Centre, ending a Cougars’ point streak that spanned 42 days.

Since opening the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League season with a 9-0 win over the Oceanside Generals on Sept. 8, the Cougars won 11 of 12 games in regulation, piling up 23 of a possible 24 points.

It didn’t take long for the Cougars (12-1-1) to reciprocate, as they came right back with a 2-1 win over the Glacier Kings (10-2-1) in Comox the next night (Oct. 21).

Junior B rivals collide at Archie Browning arena tomorrow night (Oct. 27, starting at 7:15 p.m.) as the Saanich Braves visit the Cougars. It’s the first of a home-and-home series between the two teams that finishes at Pearkes arena, 6:30 p.m. on Friday.

Friday’s game is the Braves’ annual “Pink in the Rink” breast cancer fundraiser.
