Two losses for Islanders
Kerry Park Islanders lost a pair of weekend Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League games on the road.
The Islanders fell 5-2 to the Braves at Saanich Friday, with goals in vain from Braeden Cross and Alex Milligan.
Milligan's goal cut the margin to 3-2 after the second period, but the Islanders couldn't close the gap in the third.
Milligan, Connor Krupa and Kyle Peterson scored for the Islanders in a 5-3 loss to the Comox Valley Glacier Kings Saturday.
After a scoreless first period, Comox vaulted into a 3-1 lead after the second. The Islanders never got any closer.
They pulled the goalie early and gave up a goal with 2:17 remaining. Peterson got that one back with 1:40 left, as the Islanders made another late surge.
Jackson Jane was a busy man in the Islanders' net, facing 39 shots.
Next up for the Islanders is a home game at Kerry Park Arena Saturday at 7:30 p.m. against the Westshore Wolves.
