Saturday’s game was back and forth from start to finish. Saanich opened the scoring in the first, but the home side responded with goals from Mason Windsor and Gorzelnik. The Predators scored again to tie things up at the end of the first. Comox Valley had a quick start to the second period with goals from Parker Jorginson and Zachary Schwartz in the first three minutes. But the visitors added two of their own to again tie the score at the end of the second frame. Saanich jumped to a 5-4 lead six minutes into the third period, but Yetis forward Nick Esposito responded two minutes later. Saanich regained the lead at 11:29 but Esposito again tied the game at 13:24. It took nine rounds in the shootout to determine the winner.
