The Nanaimo Clippers were able to end a long road trip the right way.

The Clippers doubled up the Langley Rivermen 6-3 in B.C. Hockey League action Sunday in the Fraser Valley.

In the win, Josh Bourne led the way with two goals and two assists and Marcus Mitchell, Gunnar Wegleitner, Thomas Samuelsen and Ethan Scardina also tallied. Jordan Naylor earned the win in goal, stopping 28 pucks as his team was outshot 31-19.

In the first game of the weekend, Samuelsen, Daniel Gatenby and Bourne scored. The next night it was Kyler Kovich with Nanaimo’s only marker.

GAME ON … The Clippers are home on Wednesday, Dec. 12, to take on the Alberni Valley Bulldogs in a 7 p.m. faceoff at Frank Crane Arena. Nanaimo is home again Friday for a 7 p.m. game against the Victoria Grizzlies at Frank Crane.
