The U15 AAA Greater Vancouver Canadians travelled to Nanaimo over the weekend and got back into the win column, sweeping the Vancouver Island Royals with 6-3 and 2-0 victories on Saturday and Sunday to snap a two-game losing streak.

On Saturday at the Cliff McNabb Arena, the Canadians overcome 2-0 and 3-1 deficits by scoring the game’s last five goals and pulling out the 6-3 triumph. Jayden Rodas scored twice, including the game-winner on the power play 2:57 into the final period. Henry Goldman also scored two goals, with a short-handed marker in the third, and Nicholas Harris and William Trolland added goals for GVC.

On Sunday at the Frank Crane Arena, Henry Goldman and Nicholas Harris scored for the Canadians, while Joshua Read notched the shutout, as the Canadians completed the sweep with a 2-0 victory. 

With the three goals on the weekend, Goldman now has a team-high seven on the season. Rodas, meanwhile, has six goals on the year, as does Trolland. 

The Canadians improve to 5-6-0-1 on the season.
