Stingers win game 1 in a shootout

121
Vic Sharks

The Victoria Hockey League was underway Tuesday night with the third round of playoffs. It was game 1 of the best of 5 between the Sharks and the Stingers, and by the end of the two period low-scoring action, it was the Stingers who prevailed taking home the first win.

With Dave Brumby in net for the Sharks and Jason Stone in for the Stingers, both teams were in it to win it. It could have gone either way because the Sharks scored twice in the first period and the Stingers scored twice in the second.
