The Nanaimo Clippers were too much for the Alberni Valley Bulldogs to handle.

The Clips defeated the Dogs 5-2 on Friday night at Frank Crane Arena. The game was a rematch of the previous Friday, in which Nanaimo needed overtime to edge its Island rivals. This week the Clippers came out skating, were undeterred by a 1-0 first-period deficit, and scored four times in the second period to build a lead.

Cole Maier had a goal and an assist and other Nanaimo scorers were Anthony Rinaldi, Nick Gushue, Brett Roulston and Sheldon Rempal. Guillaume Decelles made 41 saves for the win as shots ended up 50-43.

GAME ON … The Clippers host the Chilliwack Chiefs on Sunday at 2 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena, then host the Victoria Grizzlies on Wednesday at 7 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena.
