The West Sound Warriors swept the Seattle Totems by way of a convincing 6-2 win and a thrilling 5-4 overtime victory last week.
The Warriors held a 2-1 lead in Friday’s game after the first period on goals by Bryce Ebert and Alec Johnson. It was 3-2 after two periods, but in the third West Sound put away the Totems for good with three goals to clinch the win in the Western States Hockey League Northwest Division.
Ebert added his second goal of the night while Samuel Pelech, Miroslav Sykora, and Harri Kroll also scored. Michael Perez had two assists for West Sound.
Goaltender Brian Eisele finished with 19 saves in the win.
Saturday’s contest was much closer.
Seattle (6-4-2, 14 points) countered each West Sound goal with one of their own as the score was tied at 1-1 after the first, the Warriors led 3-2 after two and tied again at 4 after the third. Ruslan Abyanov put the Warriors up 4-3 in the third, but Seattle’s Michael Shippee scored with 13 seconds left to tie.
Erik Safstram had the overtime winner off an assist from Mattias Wikstrom at the 3:08 mark.
The Warriors (6-8, 12) will be on the road for a three-game series against division-leading Lake Tahoe (9-6, 20) Friday-Sunday.
