PORT McNEILL—North Island Eagles let 3-2 lead slip away in Tier 3 playoff defeat to visiting Bulldogs

The Alberni Valley Bulldogs took a 7-3 bite out of the Tri-Port Eagles in Bantam action Saturday at the Chilton Regional Arena in Port McNeill.

This was the Bantams’ first round robin playoff game.

Early on, the outing was evenly matched with the Eagles putting two between the pipes in the first period. Devin White opened the scoring for the Eagles with an assist by Benton Brown. Captain Tanner Roberts scored the team’s second goal with help from Michael Perez to tie things up at 2.

With 7:44 left in the second, the Bulldogs got the go-ahead goal, but their lead was short-lived. Just 33 second later, White put one into the net assisted by Joshua Borg and Perez.

At that point the Bulldogs went on a bit of a tear, scoring four unanswered goals to win 7-3.
