Comox Valley Glacier Kings clobbered 7-1 by Westshore Wolves


Right back at ya.

That was the message the Westshore Wolves delivered to the Comox Valley Glacier Kings on Tuesday night in Victoria.

Just three days after the Glacier Kings had whipped the Wolves 9-1 in Courtenay, the teams met for the rematch on Oct. 21, and this time it was Westshore’s turn to light up the scoreboard.

The Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League’s South Division leaders took a 2-0 lead in the first period and stretched it to 3-0 after two. The home team went up 4-0 early in the third before Brandon McReynolds netted the only Comox Valley goal of the game.

The Wolves out-shot the Yetis 29-28 and went 2-for-8 on the power play. The Icemen were 0-for-5 with the man advantage. Riley Mathieson took the loss in net. The Wolves’ lopsided win was reflected in the game’s three stars: Chris Smith (28 saves) was first star, Brett Lervold (1g, 2a) was second star and Kyle Richter (1g, 1a) was third star.

With the back-to-back series with the Wolves in their rear view mirror, the G-Kings now look ahead to another home-and-away match-up with the Peninsula Panthers. The Yetis are away to Peninsula on Oct. 24 then host the Panthers on Oct. 25 (7:30 p.m. Comox Valley Sports Centre #1).

The Icemen close out the October portion of their regular season schedule on Oct. 31 in Campbell River against the frightfully good (11-1-1-0) Storm, who are in first place in the North Division and sport the best winning percentage in the league.
