Cougars trounce Panthers

The Peninsula Panthers faced off against the Victoria Cougars Dec. 14

Cody Breitenstein powers through the neutral zone during game action against the Victoria Cougars last Friday. Breitenstein was the lone Panthers’ marksman of the night.

The Peninsula Panthers faced off against the Victoria Cougars Dec. 14 in a fast-paced game that saw the Panthers take a 6-1 loss to the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League South Island Division leaders.

The first period saw the score settle at 1-1 after the Panthers’ Cody Breitenstein gained a power play marker. The Cougars’ Samuel Rice answered with a power play goal of his own. The only goal of the second period was scored by Dane Feeney of the Cougars after a Panthers’ defenceman turned the puck over, allowing an odd-man rush.

In the third, Feeney beat Panthers’ goaltender Stephen Heslop after only 37 seconds and at the 2:47 mark of the third, the Cougars’ Graham Zagrodney scored a goal which set off a flurry of markers for the team. Victoria would top up the final score to 6-1.

The Panthers now sit in fourth place in the South Island Division of the VIJHL behind the Westshore Wolves, the Saanich Braves and the Victoria Cougars. The team doesn’t play at home until after Christmas but are scheduled to travel to Saanich Friday, Dec. 21 for a final pre-Christmas game.

The Braves will be back at Panorama Recreation Centre Friday, Dec. 28 for a Panthers home game which is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
