Saturday’s game (pictured) was game two of the three game weekend series between the Kootenay Wildcats and host Vancouver Island Hurricanes, which is made up of players from all over Vancouver Island, including four from Campbell River.

Friday night saw a slow start by the Hurricanes and they fell into a hole they couldn’t recover from.

Saturday was a different story as the Hurricanes were dominant from the get-go outshooting the Wildcats 8-4 in the first period.

The pace slowed in the second period and the Wildcats clawed back the momentum to take a 1-0 lead.

But in the third, the Hurricanes came out storming and tied it up on a goal by Cierra Paisley (Kerry Park) just four minutes in.

Olivia Alexander (Victoria) added another goal three  minutes later and that was all the Hurricanes needed as they cruised to a 2-1 victory doubling the Wildcats overall in shots 22-11.

On Sunday, the Hurricanes did it again, defeating the Wildcats 3-1.
