Braves edge Storm to even playoff series

Game 5 goes Tuesday night in Campbell River

The VIJHL’s leading playoff scorer supplied the firepower the Saanich Braves needed to even up their series with the Campbell River Storm.

The Braves edged Campbell River 3-2 Monday night to pull even in the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League final at two games apiece.

Michael Sproule scored twice for the Braves, who built up a 3-0 lead before surrendering two third-period goals. Sproule leads the VIJHL in playoff scoring with 24 points. Gavin Grewal also scored for the Braves, while Jake McKenzie and Darren Hards replied for Campbell River.

The Storm outshot the Braves 41-32, with Riley Mathieson in the Saanich net and Dylan Garand between the pipes for Campbell River.

Game 5 goes Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. in Campbell River, with the Braves back at home in Pearkes Arena for Game 6 Friday at 6:30 p.m.
