CLIPPERS DOWN MERRITT 3-1 FOR SIXTH STRAIGHT WIN

The Clippers winning streak is up to six games after a 3-1 win over the Merritt Centennials on Saturday.

Former teammates Noah Featherstonhaugh Gowe and Austin Roden both were solid in net with Featherstonhaugh Gowe and the Clippers getting a late goal to seal the victory.

Josh Bourne gave Nanaimo a 1-0 lead after 20 minutes as he counted his fifth goal in his last four games.

The game stayed that way through the second period as well with neither team able to score.

Tristan Crozier put the Clippers up 2-1 on a third period power play, before Zach Zorn’s shorthanded goal cut into the lead.

Preston Brodziak scored an insurance tally in the final minute.

The final shots were 39-22 for the Clippers with Nanaimo going 1/10 on the power play and Merritt finishing 0/6.

Now the Clippers move on to a home and home series with the Cowichan Valley Capitals Wednesday in Duncan and Friday at Frank Crane Arena.
