Pre-Game Report: Eagles vs. Clippers
The Birds are coming off their first win of the tournament after they defeated the Steinbach Pistons 5-3 on Monday night. Trevor Cameron was the best Surrey player on the ice, scoring twice and generating a few more chances in the win as well. Heading into Tuesday's action, the Eagles will have a chance to move ahead of the Clippers in the WCC standings with a win as both teams are in a three-way tie with the Brooks Bandits for second place at 1-1.
Following their first round exit in the BCHL Playoffs at the hands of the Alberni Valley Bulldogs, the Clippers had over a month off to prepare for the WCC. Nanaimo opened the tournament with a close, hard fought match up against the Yorkton Terriers -- a game which the Clips lost 4-3. Nanaimo bounced back with a strong effort in the second game of the tournament as the Clippers power play converted four times in a 7-2 win over the Brooks Bandits.
