Lino Chimienti posted a 25-save showing for his first shutout of the season as the Merritt Centennials clipped the Surrey Eagles 2-0 in B.C. Hockey League action Friday night at Nicola Valley Arena.

The game was scoreless until late in the second period when Evan Stack put Merritt on the board. Sean Maktaak provided some insurance with his goal early in the third frame.

Troy Paterson’s overtime winner gave the Cowichan Valley Capitals a 4-3 road win over the Salmon Arm SilverBacks Friday night at the Sunwave Centre.

Salmon Arm’s Morgan Zulinick forced OT with a powerplay goal midway through the third period after the teams had traded leads a couple of times in regulation.

The Chilliwack Chiefs got 50 saves from Mitch Gillam but, it wasn’t enough in a 3-2 road loss to the Alberni Valley Bulldogs at Weyerhaeuser Arena.

In other Friday night action, the host Westside Warriors got three helpers from Connor Dempsey in a 5-2 win over the Coquitlam Express, and Scott Moyer fired the winner as the Langley Rivermen outlasted the host Nanaimo Clippers 4-3 at Frank Crane Arena.
