Bombers at Home Wednesday Night

The Port Alberni Bombers return to home ice for the first time in 2024 when they face Victoria Cougars on Wednesday night at the Alberni Valley Multiplex.
Coming off a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Comox Valley Glacier Kings in their last start, the Bombers deserved a better fate, and hope to rectify the situation with a victory over the Cougars, who currently sit in first place in the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League’s South Division.
The Cougars hold a 3-0 series lead over the Bombers and their .750 winning percentage is second in the VIJHL, trailing only Campbell River Storm in that category.
Although trailing 3-0 in the season series, the Bombers can take heart in knowing they have played better each time the two teams have met. Losing 8-2 and the 3-0, the locals were close, losing 5-4 the last time the teams faced off against each other.
Puck drop is scheduled for 7:00 pm.
