February 7, 2014, Victoria (ISN) – On Friday night the Victoria Hockey League was in action when the Penguins took on the Sharks in Naden’s Wurtele Arena. Dave Brumby was between the pipes for the Sharks and Kyle Harrison was in for the Penguins.

Steven Schmidt started things off for the Penguins, scoring on Brumby at 17:10 followed by another by Shane Hughes at 14:19, his first of two to be scored by the end of the game.

Then at 8:02 and 7:47, Simon Vreeswijk scored both of those goals for the Penguins, his first two of an eventual hatty by game’s end.

It didn’t take long for the Penguins to answer back with three goals of their own, though. Tanner Carter buried one at 7:54, and then so did Shane Hughes, his second of the night at 6:21, leading Tanner Carter to once again bury the puck in behind Brumby at 5:42, which was also Tanner’s second of the night.
