The Sooke Bantam C team pulled out its final win of the regular season against the Saanich Braves on Saturday afternoon with a 5-2 victory. The team thus accomplished a no-defeat regular season, sealing its place as a first place for the playoffs that begin next weekend in Victoria.
Scoring goals for Sooke were Dominic LaCroix (2), Dreyden Alexander, Brad Angus and Ayden Ostropolski. Assists were seen from Ostropolski, Angus, LaCroix, Zachary and Lindal.
Defense was especially strong on behalf of Sooke from Carello, Lindal, Garret Chiasson, and Kieren Connor. The combined efforts of these players and the other forwards allowed only few good shots on netminder Clouser, and kept screens and other activity in front of the net at a minimal. Saanich had 25 shots on goal while Sooke took 48. Penalty minutes were even with 6 each.
