Kerry Park Islanders are clearly improving, but don’t have an answer for the Victoria Cougars.

The Cougars are undefeated in 21 Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League games at 20-0-1 after beating the 2-16-2 Islanders 9-1 Thursday night at Esquimalt’s Archie Browning Arena.

The Cougars usually devour the Islanders on the power play, but surprisingly only scored once in seven opportunities.

The Cougars scored three times in each period. They built a 4-0 lead before the Islanders got their lone goal from Corey Peterson three minutes into the second period.

Goalie Jackson Jane faced 34 shots the first two periods. Joshua Alalouf replaced him for the third.

The Islanders are at Saanich Friday and Comox Saturday.
