Top two South Div teams battle it out early.

Both Saanich and Victoria will battle it out for the early South Division lead Friday. Both teams started the season by beating up on Kerry Park and Comox, out scoring them 14-1 (SB) and 13-4 (VC).

While Saanich has the edge in Goals For and Against, Victoria holds a solid Special Teams lead. Going 7 for 12 on the PP so far this season (58%) the Cougars seem to be clicking on the man advantage early, something that plagued them last year.

The Cougars and Braves were fairly even last season (2-3-1-2) but this year the Cougars are a new look team. Player of the Week for the VIJHL, Mateo Albinati, has 7 points in 2 games, Booker Chacalias and Marshall Brown both have 5 points and both Cougars goal keepers have been sharp.

This should be a fantastic game, puck drop is 630pm at Pearkes Arena located at 3100 Tillicum Road.
