March 27, 2013, Victoria, BC (ISN) – It was game four in the VHL playoffs between the Sharks and the Lions at Pearkes Arena in Victoria. This would have been the Lions’ chance to even the score but that was not to be.

The Sharks took the win, winning three games to one dubbing themselves the Victoria Hockey League champs.
