Last Night: Delta's 10-goal third period caps wild B.C. win over Victoria
There are plenty of surprising stats from Sunday’s 17-13 Delta Islanders win over the Victoria Shamrocks. But 4 fighting majors and game misconducts are perhaps the least surprising.
Frustration is bound to boil over in a game like this. Victoria scored 8 goals in the first period, and led 8-3. Victoria then scored 0 goals in the second period but still led, 8-7. And then the third period happened, where Victoria scored a respectable 5 goals in the frame. The problems for the Shamrocks is that Delta scored a remarkable 10 goals in the third period en route to a final score that sends the Shamrocks in an offseason with something to think about.
It’s a game that saw the teams combined for 116 shots on goal, 67 by Delta. And while the Islanders weren’t exactly struggling on offense by scoring a combined 7 goals through the first 2 periods, it was a perfect storm of sorts that set up the wild third period.
Ryan Lewis scored in the first minute to tie the score, 8-8, and the teams traded goals for a 10-10 tie before Jayden Campbell’s goal at 14:55 was the first of 3 straight for the Islanders that gave them the lead for good.
The Shamrocks got back to within 13-12 on Eddie Smith’s goal at 6:40, but Delta scored 4 of the game’s final 5 goals to ice it.
Chase Fraser paced the Islanders with 4 goals and 1 assist while Cam Milligan and Spencer Bromley each scored 3 goals.
Marshal King led Victoria with 5 goals and 2 assists and 8 other Shamrocks each scored 1 goal.
