The Burnaby Winter Club E15 squad went 2-0 against Pacific Coast Hockey Academy at home this weekend to maintain third place in the CSSHL E15 standings.
BWC dominated game one Saturday night from the get-go, putting up 16 shots in the first period to Pacific Coast’s seven.
BWC’s Holden Katzalay got things going at 5:13 of the first period, on a goal assisted by Matt Leduc and Jack McIntosh. About seven minutes later Marcus Van der Made scored to put BWC up 2-0. BWC kept up the attack but Sea Devils Austin Dendl was solid in net and the period closed out 2-0.
BWC started the second two men down, after Christian Buono was assessed a cross-checking penalty and Ian Walker was handed a four minute spearing penalty at the end of the first.
It didn’t take the Sea Devils long to capitalize on the 5-3 opportunity. Damian Rennie scored at 1:13 to make it 2-1 – but it would be Pacific Coast’s only goal of the game.
After the power play goal, BWC resumed their attack, peppering Dendl with more 20 shots – but couldn’t get anything past him in the frame, which closed out 2-1.
However BWC didn’t let the play of Dendl get into their heads, and kept up the pressure in the third period. With BWC’s Matt Leduc in the penalty box for head contact, the BWC penalty kill came out strong and scored shorthanded on a goal from Tom Sweeney. A few minutes later, Ryan Stack notched the clincher to make it 4-1 BWC.
When all was said and done, BWC had put 50 shots on net to Pacific Coast’s 22 for the victory.
Sunday’s contest was pretty much a rerun of game one, with BWC dominating the shot clock and Sea Devils hanging in on great goaltending.
BWC came out flying – Christian Buono scored off the opening face-off just 2o seconds into the game and Tom Sweeney followed it up just 55 seconds later. Pacific Coast bounced back on a goal by Jerzy Gus around the five minute mark but BWC’s Marcus Van der Made would score with 5:33 left to restore BWC’s two goal at the end of the first, 3-1.
Pacific Coast would make it 3-2 early in the second on a goal from Jaxon Orth, but that would be it for Sea Devil scoring.
Christian Buono scored his second of the game around the halfway mark to make it 4-2 at the end of the second. Jack McIntosh sealed the deal 2:01 into the third to close out the scoring with 5-2 BWC win.
With the two wins, BWC holds onto third place position in the CSSHL standings, six points behind the Edge School and 11 points back of Northern Alberta.
Delta, with two games in hand, are just two points back. The two losses drop Pacific Coast to 7-10-0 and into sixth place.
Here’s the league standings after the weekend.
