Comox Centre Mall Bantam Chiefs win twice on home ice

The Comox Centre Mall Bantam Chiefs hosted two league games this past weekend and came away with two wins.

Saturday against the Victoria Ice Hawks, the Chiefs controlled the tempo of the game and limited the Ice Hawks scoring chances, skating away with a 5-2 win.  Chiefs’ goals came from Matt Teasdale, Taylor Hardy, Cayden Smith, Brett Arnet and Lochlan Willis, with Keegan Rivett backstopping the victory.

In Sunday’s game against rival Cowichan Capitals, the Chiefs got off to a slow start, falling behind 2-0 after one period. The boys found their legs early in the second period and evened the score with two quick goals by  Hardy and Smith.

The Capitals took several undisciplined penalties in the latter half of the second period and the Chiefs took advantage twice on the power play with goals by Smith and Ryan Telford.

Cowichan closed the gap to 4-3 early in the third period, however, a hard-working goal by Kevin Lo put the Chiefs ahead again by two goals, and a late rally by the Capitals was extinguished when Evan Black tallied an empty net goal to close out the scoring, securing a 6-4 win.

With the two wins, the Chiefs improved to 3-1-1 in league play, with another home game this Saturday afternoon, 4:45 to 6:45 against Oceanside at Sports Centre #1.

The Chiefs hosted a successful eight-team tournament the previous weekend, finishing fifth with a 3-1 record. “The team thanks all our sponsors and fans who supported us, as well as the referees and linesmen who did a great job throughout the weekend,” a Chiefs’ spokesperson said.
