Three games in four days started well for the Kerry Park Islanders thanks to Jackson Jane.

Jane made 42 saves, as the Islanders were badly outshot but beat the Campbell River Storm 4-3 Thursday at Kerry Park Arena for just their fourth victory of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League season.

Cody Short, Braeden Cross, Brendan Gowanlock and Kyle Green scored for the Islanders.

But the win streak was short-lived, as the Islanders lost 5-3 at Kerry Park Arena Saturday against the Peninsula Panthers.

Only the heroics of Jordan Hospes in the Islanders’ net kept the game close. He turned aside 52 of 57 shots.

Kyle Peterson, Corey Peterson and Eric Mansueti were the Islanders’ marksmen.

The Islanders were in Parksville Sunday and went down to a 6-3 defeat against the Oceanside Generals. Green, Corey Peterson and Jordan Coyne connected for goals in vain.
