On any given day in the junior loop, anyone can skate off a winner – well, anyone but winless Surrey, that is.

In Grandview’s victory, the home team took a 1-0 lead midway through the first on Anthony Benevoli’s unassisted effort. With 4:35 left in the game, Jack Hamilton counted the game’s final goal.

Picking up the shutout was Cale Dolan with 23 saves.

Against the Whalers, the Steelers surged ahead 3-2 after surrendering the first two goals. But White Rock replied with two unanswered tallies in the third, cashing in the winner with 2:53 remaining.

Scoring for Grandview were Max Daerendinger, newcomer Tristyn Olson and Hamilton.

They host Ridge Meadows on Sunday, 7:15 p.m. at the Burnaby Winter Club.
