Peewee Bruins blazing into playoffs

Chilliwack’s peewee A2 Junior Bruins are heading into the playoffs on a roll, having won their final two league games.

On Wednesday, Chilliwack blanked the Surrey Hurricanes 5-0 behind the stellar goaltending of Ben Mazerolle.

Zack Robertson opened the scoring in the first period with an assist to Blake Bonnar. Robertson had another in the second period, with Colin Gormley also finding the net. Affiliate Dylan Ohlsen picked up an assist.

Third period snipers were Robertson, Bonnar and Ryan Trottier.

On Thursday, Chilliwack sent 11 skaters up against a full-strength Burnaby squad known for collecting tons of penalty minutes.

Trailing 2-0 early, Bonnar got the Bruins on the board with assists to Brody van Velze and Ohlsen.

Brock Menges and Trottier tallied in the second period, leaving the game tied 3-3 through 40 minutes.

Menges set up Robertson for the go-ahead goal early in the final frame, but Burnaby came back to tie.

With just nine ticks left on the clock, Gormley came through with the game winning goal.

Goaltender Keaton Dyck got the win in net.

Chilliwack’s record over the final five regular season games was 4-0-1.
