BCIHL Poll
What do you think of the BCIHL adding Vancouver Island University as a new team for 2017/18?
  It's great! The more the merrier.
  Bad move! Should have kept things how they were.
  Doesn't matter! I just follow my favourite team!

Glen's third period winner leads Coyotes to opening win over WolfPack
Wednesday, March 14, 2012 - Submitted by BCIHL Media
The TRU WolfPack dropped a tight 3-2 decision to Okanagan College in their first game of the 2012 BCIHL Championship at Memorial Arena on Thursday night.

Okanagan College started the game off strong as #11 Lyndon Dyas scored the first goal of the game at 1:45. The two teams played a closely fought game and it wasn’t until 11:45 when TRU’s #9 Jassi Sangha scored a goal in off the short side on a power play. Sangha was assisted by both #6 Shane Oatway and #24 Cody Lockwood. The first period ended in a 1-1 tie.

During the second period Okanagan College’s #25 Kean Vick scored assisted by #10 Aaron Buat. The time of the goal was 6:18.

In the final period both teams played an extremely close game but #19 Chris Glen of the Coyotes scored an unassisted goal at 5:25. TRU played hard and #23 Mike McCance was finally able to score at 11:58 for the TRU WolfPack. McCance was assisted by both Lockwood and Sangha.

Unfortunately, for the WolfPack they were unable to score the final two goals needed to win and they walked away with a 3-2 loss. 

"We're disappointed with the results tonight," says WolfPackhead coach Don Schulz. ”At times I thought the team let some emotion take over and we lost focus on the task at hand. I also thought we were a little unlucky because we had couple of great chances to score but just didn’t put it away at crucial times of the game.”

Schulz said he and the other coaches advised the team to, “be ticked off for about a half an hour, have a good shower, good stretch, get a good meal, have lots of fluids tonight and tomorrow’s a new day.”

Tonight’s loss means that the TRU WolfPack will play at 4 p.m. tomorrow against Eastern Washington University who lost 6-1 to Victoria earlier today. 

Tomorrow’s game is a must win for TRU, with the winner advancing to Friday and the loser exiting the tournament.

A reminder for those wishing to watch the games that day passes are $5 for adults, $2 for students and seniors and free for children 12 and under. If anyone can’t make it to Memorial Arena the game is available on pay per view basis for $6 on the B.C. intercollegiate website. (www.bcihl.ca
