Buccaneers climbing ladder in VIJHL standings

The Nanaimo junior B Buccaneers have first place in the North Division in their sights, but they’ll have to battle the Westshore Wolves to earn it.

Nanaimo (12-11-0-1) is riding a winning a streak of five wins in six games, but the Wolves (15-11-0-0) have proven to be strong on the road this year with eight wins and five losses.

Nanaimo sits just one point back of Comox Valley (12-11-0-2) with a game in hand as of Tuesday.

The Oceanside Generals, however, are nipping at the Bucs’ heels with a record of 10-14-0-2.

The Bucs and Wolves get together tonight (Nov. 29) at 7:15 p.m. at the Nanaimo Ice Centre.
