Buccaneers slump, losing two more

The Nanaimo Buccaneers fell 5-4 to the Oceanside Generals on Thursday at the Nanaimo Ice Centre, then lost to the Saanich Braves 4-2.

The Nanaimo Buccaneers still have yet to win in November after losing for the fifth- and sixth-straight times this month. The junior B squad fell 5-4 to the Oceanside Generals on Thursday at the Nanaimo Ice Centre, then lost to the Saanich Braves 4-2 the next night on the road.

Thursday’s game saw the Bucs outshoot the visitors 45-26, but to no avail. Zach Funk, Nolan Richardson, Billy Walters and Trent Bell scored and Alex Orth suffered the loss in goal.

The next night, Clayton Peace and Nick Gomerich were Nanaimo’s scorers and Liam Young tended goal.

GAME ON … The Buccaneers play just one game this week, on the road Thursday (Nov. 26) against the Victoria Cougars. Next home action for Nanaimo is Dec. 3, when they host the Kerry Park Islanders at 7:15 p.m. at the NIC.
