Braves Close Out Great Week With Win and OT Loss

The Saanich Braves completed their best week in a very long time, taking 5 out of possible 6 points with a win over Peninsula last Wednesday and then a 7-4 win over Nanaimo Friday and a 5-4 OT loss to Kerry Park on Saturday.  

On Friday, Nyshan Basra was the hero, scoring a hat-trick to lead the Braves to the win over the Buccaneers.  The Braves jumped out to a 2-0 lead, but the Bucs rebounded to take a 3-2 lead into the first break. Two goals by Basra in the second and one from Nanaimo sent the teams into the third, tied 4-4, but the Braves then scored three unanswered in the third to put the game away.

In a thriller Saturday in Kerry Park, the Braves held leads of 2-0 and 4-2 only to see the Islanders score two late goals in the third to tie it up and then get a highlight reel goal from Braeden Cross with 30 seconds left in the first overtime to give Kerry Park the win.  Nyshan Basra had another strong game for the Braves, scoring a pair of goals and an assist.  Ben Meek and Jack Rachwalski had the other Saanich goals.  

Next up, and the only game for the Braves this week, is a rematch with Kerry Park on Wednesday night at Pearkes Arena.  Game time is 7:30 pm.
