Kerry Park Islanders have slipped back a few notches after winning their first two games of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League season.

The Islanders fell behind 4-0 in the first 14 minutes against the Westshore Wolves Saturday night at Kerry Park Arena and that was the difference in an eventual 7-3 defeat.

The Islanders closed the gap to 4-2 early in the third period after goals by Jamie Jensen and Braeden Cross but that’s as close as they got.

Brett Vestby scored the other Islanders’ goal.

The Islanders face the high-flying Victoria Cougars, who have lost just once in regulation, Thursday at Esquimalt.
