Braves Drop 3-1 Decision to Victoria

Story and Photos by Christian J. Stewart - Mark Walton would score 17 seconds into the game and the Cougars would add 2 more goals in the third period to come away with a 3-1 win over the Saanich Braves Thursday evening at Archie Browning Arena in Esquimalt.

Walton would jam home a Michael Fretz rebound on the Cougar's first rush of the game and it appeared that the Braves were going to be in for a long night, however despite facing 14 shots in total in that first period, Braves goaltender Jordan Werezak would hold the fort and that 1-0 lead would hold until the first intermission.

Braves Rebound With 6-2 Win Over Comox

Guerra LIfts Braves Past Wolves in Double OT

Story and Photos by Christian J. Stewart - A powerplay goal by Nick Guerra at the 1:34 mark of the second overtime period - his second goal of the night - gave the Saanich Braves a 3-2 win over the Westshore Wolves in VIJHL action Friday night at Pearkes Arena in Saanich.

The goal capped another unlikely comeback for the Braves, who - just like the home opener against the Wolves on September 6th - found themselves trailing heading into the third period, but found a way to come back and snatch a victory away from the Westshore squad.

Defensive Miscues Prove Costly for Braves in 3-2 Loss to Cougars

Story and Photos by Christian J. Stewart - Ryan Carson's third period goal proved to be the difference as the Victoria Cougar's emerged with a 3-2 win over the Saanich Braves in VIJHL hockey action Friday night at Pearkes Arena in Saanich.   Carson's goal, his second of the year, scored at the 9:12 mark of the third, came courtesy of a defensive miscue by Braves defenceman Jordan Groenhyde, who gave the puck up to Carson at the top of the face-off circle in the Braves end, allowing Carson to break in alone and beat Saanich netminder Jordan Werezak with a nice deke to the stick side.
