Campbell River Storm lose game five of the final series 5-4

The Campbell River Storm lost 5-4 to the Saanich Braves in game five of the VIJHL playoff finals yesterday evening.

Saanich netted their first goal almost 10 minutes into the first period. The Storm answered with only 41 seconds left in the first when Jake McKenzie made a snappy pass to Jalen Price.

Almost four minutes into the second period Brett Kinley scored a power play goal with an assist from Mitch Stapley and Kyle Kaufmann. A minute and a half later the Storm pulled ahead by two. But the Braves answered with a power play goal one minute later. They scored a third, tying the game eight minutes after that.

Less than 40 seconds into the third the Braves pulled ahead. With 10 minutes left they solidified their win with another goal.

The Storm fought to get back on the board and Frank, assisted by Slaney and Stapley, put another in the net with a minute and a half left on the clock. But they couldn’t pull out another one.

With this win the Braves pull ahead in the series with three wins to the Storm’s two. Game six of the best-of-seven series is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Friday in Saanich. If the Storm win the teams will meet again in Campbell River on Saturday at 5 p.m.
