The Kerry Park Islanders will have to wait to get their first win over the Victoria Cougars in four years.

The Cougars blanked the Isles 6-0 Tuesday night at Kerry Park Arena, finishing off a four-game sweep in their opening-round, best-of-seven Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League playoff series. Kerry Park has not beaten Victoria since March of 2012.

Liam Kinshella scored twice for the Cougars in the final game, with John Kretzchmar, Nathan Looysen, Jordan Passmore and Kenny Britton adding singles. Nico Somerville chipped in with three assists. Anthony Ciurro made 21 saves to pick up the shutout.

Chase Anderson made 38 saves for Kerry Park.
