Wolves Advance With Win Over Braves in Double Overtime

Story and Photos by Christian J. Stewart (ISN) - This just might go down as one of the most memorable VIJHL playoff series ever. Playing their fourth overtime game in a row, the Westshore Wolves' James Severs scored with 5:14 to play in the second overtime Friday night to give the Wolves a 5-4 win over the Saanich Braves at Pearkes Arena. Severs' goal, a wrister from the point that somehow found its way through a crowd and over the shoulder of Braves goaltender Riley Mathieson, capped off the 4-2 series win for the Wolves, but also capped off a series that...

Wolves Take Series Lead Over Braves in Double-OT Thriller

Story and Photos by Christian J. Stewart (ISN) - Jordan Martin's goal at 16:44 of the second overtime period gave the Westshore Wolves a dramatic come from behind 3-2 victory over the Saanich Braves in Game 3 of their VIJHL South Division playoff series played Sunday night at The Q Centre in Colwood.  Martin's goal gave the Wolves a 2-1 series lead and marked a disappointing end of the game for Saanich goaltender Brandon Ward who deserved a better fate, having faced a 50 shot barrage from the Wolves on the night and who, like he did in the Braves Game...

Braves Power Into Home Stretch With Rout of Oceanside

With just four games remaining in the 2014-2015 VIJHL regular season, the Saanich Braves sent a strong message last week that they may be a team to watch once the playoffs begin. On Saturday (Jan. 31) in Parksville, the Braves, led by four goals from forward Seamus Maguire, pounded the Oceanside Generals 10-2. In front of a number of fathers who made the trip up on the bus, on Saturday in Parksville, the Braves did what they should do against the worst team in the league, scoring early and often and avenging in a big way, a 5-4 loss to the Generals...

Despite Loss, Braves Send Strong Message to Cougars

Story and Photos by Christian J. Stewart - If one were a betting man, it would be a pretty safe bet to put some money down on the 36-5-1-0 Victoria Cougars to repeat as Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League champions in 2015. Don't count on the Saanich Braves and their fans to be one of those taking that bet. The Braves, playing perhaps their best game of the year thus far against the Cougars, gave the cats all they could handle Friday night at Pearkes Arena, ultimately dropping a 3-2 decision with just 13 seconds remaining thanks to a power play...
