MILL BAY, B.C. – Chase Anderson stopped all 47 shots for his third shutout of the season and Ty Smith scored the game winner as the Kerry Park Islanders blanked the Victoria Cougars 2-0 on Tuesday night.
At 7:07 of the first period, Smith pinched in from the point and fired a quick shot past Patrick Ostermann. Making a sweet pass from the corner was Brandon Wilson who snapped a seven game pointless drought.
Keenan Eddy iced the cake in the final few seconds of regulation with an empty net goal.
Victoria could not capitalize on the power play, finishing 0-for-5 which included squandering a five minute man advantage when Avery Nielsen-Webb was ejected from the game for fighting.
Ostermann made 21 saves in the loss.
Kerry Park was held without a power play opportunity.
Cameron Welch made his debut for the Cougars after being acquired a day ago from the Osoyoos Coyotes of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League.
