Victoria wraps up regular season with weekend double-header against Port Coquitlam

A third-period Victoria rally fell short as the Jr. ‘A’ Shamrocks dropped a 10-9 decision to the Nanaimo Timbermen Tuesday night at The Q Centre.

The Timbermen held leads of 5-1 and 8-5 after the first two periods, with a late push by the Shamrocks allowing them to get within a goal.

Austin Madronic supplied one goal and three helpers with the other goals coming from Brayden Brown and Ben Preston. Cam Dunkerley and newly acquired Brody Harris teamed up in the Shamrocks net.
