The Nanaimo Clippers extended their winning streak, with an exclamation point provided by Sheldon Rempal.

The Clippers’ star forward scored five times in an 8-5 win over the Surrey Eagles on the road Sunday.

The victory extended Nanaimo’s win streak to nine straight, as the Clips swept their weekend road trip, also defeating the Prince George Spruce Kings 5-2 on Friday and then edging the Chilliwack Chiefs 2-1 in overtime Saturday.

Against the Eagles, Will Reilly, Zach Court and Corey Renwick scored Nanaimo’s other goals and Jakob Walter made 37 saves for the win.

At Chilliwack the night before, it was Matt Hoover with the game-winning goal in OT. Devin Brosseau also scored and Evan Johnson was the game’s first star with 39 saves.

In the first game of the road trip, Hoover scored four goals and Chris Dodero also tallied. Johnson only needed to make 14 saves for the win.

GAME ON … The Clippers play the Merritt Centennials on Friday (Dec. 11) at 7 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena, then host the West Kelowna Warriors the next night in a 6 p.m. faceoff at Frank Crane.
