In the second period, Saanich fought back and scored with the man advantage, but Comox Valley added a third goal, this time from Tanner Roberts. Teasdale had an assist on the goal.

The Braves scored once more on the powerplay in the third period, but the visitors could not muster up the tying goal.

Jacob Bennett turned aside 26 of 28 shots to backstop the Glacier Kings to the win.

The previous night, the team lost on the road 4-2 to the Peninsula Panthers, leaders of the south division. Clayton Bono and Jack Fairfield scored for Comox Valley.
