Spartans season ends in overtime

Geoff Courtnall scored his fair share of overtime goals to make Lower Mainland hockey fans happy.

But this time, it was the former NHLer’s son, Adam Courtnall doing the honours, and the goal eliminated the Trinity Western Spartans from the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League playoffs on Friday night.

The overtime goal gave the Victoria Vikes a 3-2 victory on Friday night at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre in Burnaby, knocking the Spartans out in the double knockout format.

The Spartans had lost their opener, 9-3 to that same Victoria squad two days earlier.

Trinity Western managed to stay alive with a 4-3 win over the Okanagan Coyotes.

Trevor Edwards had two goals and an assist in that game, while Trevor Beaupre and Matt Chaput had a goal apiece.

Brendan Elenko and Brandon Long scored in the second game against Victoria, while in the opener, Josh Stephenson had a pair and Benton Nickel the other.
