Victoria Cougars revive their winning ways

The Victoria Cougars got back on the winning track with two weekend VIJHL wins

The Victoria Cougars got back on the winning track with two weekend wins.

The Cougars took revenge for a 4-1 loss Thursday with a 3-1 win over the Peninsula Panthers.

Four different players registered points for Victoria but it was the line of Wade Johnson, Sam McMullen, and Brett Lervold that did most of the damage.

Sunday afternoon’s game marked the midway point of the season for the Cougars who finished the first half with a record of 20-3-1-0.

The Panthers, who had their three-game winning streak snapped, dropped to 6-20-0-0 on the season.

Victoria’s 18-year-old rookie netminder  Anthony Ciurro allowed only a second-period goal.

The Cougars went 1-for-4 on the power play while Peninsula failed to score on its four opportunities.

Saturday the Cougars travelled up Island for a 4-0 win against the Kerry Park Islanders.

Michael Fretz (1g, 1a), Ryan Carson (0g, 2a), and Robert Zadra (0g, 2a) led the attack with two points apiece while Grant Payne made 16 saves for his second shutout of the season.

Next game for the Cougars is Thursday, November 27 against the Nanaimo Buccaneers in Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League action.  Game time at the Archie Browning Sports Centre at 7:00 p.m.
