Comox Valley Breakers women’s hockey season underway

Team takes on local rivals Courtenay Whalers this Saturday at Glacier Gardens

The Comox Valley Breakers have dropped the puck on another season of women’s hockey.

The Breakers, sponsored by Mike Fisher-Royal LePage, play their second regular season game of the year Saturday, Oct. 4 at Glacier Gardens when they face-off at 9:15 p.m. against local rivals Ecofish Courtenay Whalers.

The Breakers opened the regular season Sept. 27 with an 8-6 loss to the Port Alberni Panthers. Ashley Kryala opened the scoring for the visitors, then Sarah Kendall tallied twice to put the Breakers  up 2-1 after one period.

Play opened up in the second, with Port Alberni outscoring the Breakers 5-3. Kryala netted two more for the Panthers with Tara Denton, Leslie France and Michelle Vogels lighting the lamp once each. Laura Reid, Teresa Bullock and Kendall with her third of the game replied for the locals.

Port Alberni sealed the deal in the third with goals by Julia Loyd and Wendy Thomson while Heidi Shephard had the lone Breakers’ tally.

The game had a plethora of penalty minutes, but that was not the case Sept. 28 when the Breakers and Whalers combined for just one penalty in an exhibition tilt.

The teams exchanged first period goals, Barb Callander scoring for the Breakers and Lisa Bruer for the Whalers. The Breakers opened up a 3-1 lead in the second on goals by Kendall and Val Wright.

Wright was right on target in the third, netting her second goal and proclaiming all was good in the world – or at least it was that afternoon.
