There are some things twins probably should not do together. Barely a minute into Sunday's game against Alberni Valley Joe Devin was called for hooking. Less than 30 seconds later Mike Devin was sent off for hooking as well. A mere 11 seconds after that and Alberni Valley had a 1-0 lead in a game that would feature runs by both teams. After the 1st period the Bulldogs would have a 2-0 lead. The Clippers would score the next 4 goals to take a 4-2 lead 5 minutes into the 3rd period. Alberni Valley then scored the next 3 goals to take a 5-4 lead with a little more than 3 minutes remaining in the game. Less than a minute later Nanaimo would tie the game and send it into overtime. Alberni Valley's Stephen Pattison would score unassisted at 2:49 to give the Bulldogs the win and hand the Clippers their first loss of the season.
The Clippers will next play on Friday when they host Surrey.
