(ISN) – The UVic men’s ice hockey team had an exciting weekend. On Friday night they

played against the SFU clan and came away with a huge 8-3 victory. On Saturday the

Vikes travelled to Langley to play against the Trinity Western Spartans but fell just

short of a win with a score of 6-5.

Friday night’s game opened with a bang as Adam Klein opened the scoring for the

Vikes, It didn’t stop there though. UVic’s own Evan Warner notched a pair of goals

just 2:43 seconds apart. By the end of the first period UVic had a solid 3-1 lead and

were sorely outshooting SFU 16-6.

The second period was again almost completely controlled by the Vikes. Adam

Klein scored again, this time an impressive shorthanded goal. Goals from UVic’s

Rowat, Loudon and Webb followed soon after and by the end of the second period

The Vikes were leading by an intimidating 6 goals with a 7-1 score.

SFU made things interesting in the 3rd period when Mike Ball and Taylor Pillar

scored 2 goals in 37 seconds, but were shut down soon afterwards when Dylan

Hykawy scored UVic’s 8th and final goal of the evening with 7:05 left on the clock.

This put a cap on an exciting and commanding performance of the UVic men’s

hockey team. UVic continued to outshoot SFU through the second and third periods

with a total of 40-27.

On Saturday the UVic men’s hockey team took on the Trinity Western Spartans

hoping for another win but came up empty handed. UVic was off to a strong start

with 2 goals in 13 seconds from Klein and Warner, but the Spartans responded back

with 3 goals to end the period. Shortly after the start of the second period Luciano

Somerville netted a goal for UVic to tie the game. The Spartans scored two more

goals but UVic answered that with a pair of their own from Hykawy and Mueller.

The game was tied and shots were 31-35 for the Vikes going into the 3rd period. With

just over 6 minutes to go in regulation, Cody Fidgett scored the game-winning goal

for Trinity Western in what was an exciting and evenly matched game.

The Vikes get a well-deserved rest this week until Friday, October 31st when they

travel back to Langley for another game against the Spartans at 7 p.m. The next

home game for the Vikes is Friday, November 7th at 7:30 p.m. when Eastern
