Eagles are up 2-1 in the series

The Alberni Valley Bulldogs picked up a 2-1 win on home ice in Game 3 of their playoff series against the Surrey Eagles.

The Bulldogs appeared to strike early in the first period with a goal that was called off due to a high stick, but it wasn’t until the end of the first frame that Bulldogs forward Nicholas Beneteau managed to get one past Eagles goaltender Michael Sochan for a 1-0 lead.

In the second frame, Eagles forward Ryden Evers scored his seventh of the playoffs to tie things up, but Bulldogs defenceman Braden Blace scored the game-winning goal for the home team early in the third period. Bulldogs goaltender Hobie Hedquist made 24 saves in the 2-1 win, while Sochan made 33 saves.

The Surrey Eagles now have a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series, and both teams will be back on the ice at the Alberni Valley Multiplex for Game 4 on Wednesday, April 19. Puck drop is at 7 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at
