The Eagles can now clinch the conference championship at home after a 5-2 road win over the Bulldogs on Thursday (May 9). On Vancouver Island, Ryan Evenhuis scored a pair for Surrey, including a late empty-netter. Captain Ty Brassington opened scoring, with singles from Caden Cranston and Jagjeevan Phangura. In net, Jaiden Sharma stopped 16 of 18 shots for the win.

The series champ will face either Penticton Vees or Salmon Arm Silverbacks for the B.C. championship.

Meantime, the league’s Alberta Cup championship will see Brooks Bandits battle Sherwood Park Crusaders starting Friday, May 10.
