Chris Tai starts in net for Alberni..
Jeff Smith starts in net for Powell River.

Bulldogs open the scoring late in the first on a goalmouth scramble as Nathan Dingmann pokes one home before Jeff Smith was able to completely smother it. No assists were given on the play but it looked like there might have been a couple players deserving of one. Goal was at 18:18 of the first.

Just 44 seconds later Bulldogs go up 2-0 on a bang-bang play on a draw in the Kings end as Brandon McReynolds finds a loose puck and snaps it low through the wickets on Smith. No assists on the play at 19:02 of the first.

Shots favour the Bulldogs after 20 minutes 11-8.

Powell River went 0 for 1 on the power play, while the Bulldogs didn't earn an opportunity.


Bulldogs take a 3-0 lead on the power play when Cayden Kraus deflects a Nolan Alward point shot top corner over the glove of Smith. Max Daerendinger also picks up a helper, 8:07 into the second.

Kings get on the board shortly afterwards when Chris Protopoulos goes top corner, far-side over the glove of Tai on the rush down the right wing. No assists were given on the play at 9:45 of the second.

Score stays 3-1 Bulldogs after two periods.

Shots that period favoured the Kings 15-10 for a two period total of 23-21 Powell River.

Bulldogs are 1 for 3 on the power play, while the Kings are 0 for 2.


Bulldogs make a goalie change to start the third as Carson Schamerhorn replaced Chris Tai in net. 

Score still 3-1 Bulldogs, with 10:41 left in the third. Schamerhorn just made a fantastic point blank save on Hunter Findlater wide open in the slot to preserve the lead. The Bulldogs go the other way on the rush on a delayed penalty and Nathan Walker rings one off the crossbar and it stays out.

Powell River makes it a 3-2 game with 7:32 to play as Andy Stevens sends Austin Kamer in alone where he makes a nice move delaying to the backhand before tucking it home. Stevens with the only assist at 12:28.

The Kings put on a late push over the final minutes of the third, but the Dogs did a pretty good job of not giving up many Grade A scoring chances.

Third period shots favoured the Kings 16-7 for a game total of 39-28.

The Dogs went 1 for 4 on the power play while the Kings went 0 for 2.
