January 10, 2014, Victoria (ISN) – On Friday night at Wurtele Arena in Naden, the Victoria Hockey League’s Sharks and Penguins faced off at 8:30. With Kyle Harrison in net for the Penguins and Dave Brumby in for the Sharks, the first period was all Sharks while the second was all Penguins.

Blair Tassone scored first, getting the Sharks on the board at 12:03. The puck saw both ends of the ice during this action-filled period and then Tyler Matheson chalked up the second goal for the Sharks which came at 8:31 making it a 2-0 game.

At 16:34 Mark McKamey opened the scoring for the Penguins but there were no more goals until close to the end of the game but it wasn’t due to lack of effort. Both teams played hard and the net minders did a phenomenal job keeping pucks out.

It would be Shane Hughes who would bury the next one in behind Brumby and that goal happened at 2:24.
