The North Island Eagles bantam rep hockey team saw its playoff run end Saturday with a 12-4 loss at Victoria, but finished the weekend on a high note with a 5-3 exhibition win at Nanaimo the following day.

The Eagles actually led Saturday’s playoff 2-1 on goals by Cameron Grant and Josh Walkus in the first period. But Victoria put the game away by scoring eight unanswered goals in the second.

Walkus added a second goal in the third and Mercedes Trevor closed out the scoring.

Tanner Roberts, Emma Mitchell, David Charlie, Jake Grinnell, Randi Ward and Alec Schmidt had assists.

In Sunday’s exhibition, the Eagles finished with three straight goals to rally from a 3-2 deficit at Nanaimo.

Roberts scored the game-winner and added a late insurance goal after Grant tied the game with 13:13 left. Walkus and Kenton Browne also scored for the bantams, and Nyck Ruel picked up the win in goal.
