Heartbreaking loss to Alberta for Team BC Hockey Team

53

It was a heartbreaking loss for Team BC, who appeared to be on their way to a win over the host Alberta.

Tied 4-4 with 28 seconds left in the game an Alberta forward managed to squeeze by the BC defence in tight to the net and put the puck past goalie Thomas Milic (Coquitlam).

Team BC was leading 2-0 after the first period with goals from Steel Quiring (Vernon) and Ty Gibson (Victoria).

In the middle frame Graham Sward got on the board for BC, however Alberta put two past the goalie to make it 3-2 as they headed into the third period.

Team BC struck again within the first minute of the third period to give them a 4-2 lead.

It was late in the game when Alberta put the game-tying goal on the board and took that momentum to continue to pressure BC, scoring the game winner with 28 seconds remaining.

Team BC now plays on Tonight at 7:30 p.m.
