Vikes claim BCIHL title at Memorial

The Victoria Vikes ended the Simon Fraser University Clan’s quest for a third-straight British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League title.

The Victoria Vikes ended the Simon Fraser University Clan’s quest for a third-straight British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League title on Sunday, March 18, at Memorial Arena.

Dustin Taylor of the Vikes wired a wrist shot past Clan goaltender Graeme Gordon 24 seconds into the first overtime period, giving Victoria a 4-3 win.

“Words can’t describe it,” Taylor told reporters after the game.

“It just feels good.”

Jason Margolus was the winning netminder, making 14 saves on 17 shots

The Vikes entered the tournament as underdogs in the No. 4 seed.

Victoria posted a 4-0 record at the tournament, winning two games in shootouts and the championship in an extra frame.

“I’m so proud of them,” Vikes head coach Harry Schamhart said.

“They’re here because they wanted to win and because they love hockey.”

The tournament’s host team — the TRU WolfPack — was eliminated after losing twice in round-robin play.
