March 15, 2014, Victoria (ISN) – Game three between the Victoria Hockey League’s Sharks and the Stars took place on Saturday night at Pearkes Arena where the Sharks were given the opportunity to sweep the Stars from the running, but the Stars weren’t going to go down so easily.

With Dave Brumby in net for the Sharks and Gord Neave in for the Stars, the first puck to make its way through a crowded crease was one from Trevor Gicas’s stick at 11:20, burying itself in behind Brumby and chalking one up for the Stars.

At 7:39, the Sharks answered back and it was Kurtis Dukelow who got his team on the board, evening things out. Then at 1:39 the Stars’ Trevor McNeil scored on Brumby with the go-ahead goal ending the period with a score of 2-1 for the Stars.

The second period almost mirrored the first, with the Stars opened things up when Cole Peterson’s puck made its way into the back of Brumby’s net at 10:02, followed shortly after by a Shark bite at 7:48. It was Danny Johns who scored the second goal for the Sharks, but then with only 22 seconds left in the game, Adam Steinberg sealed the deal burying the puck and ending the game with a 4-2 W for the Stars.
