Comox Valley Glacier Kings drop see-saw affair to Nanaimo

Team still looking for that elusive first win of the season

Tanner Roberts scored a pair for the Glacier Kings Saturday against Nanaimo, but it wasn’t enough. The visiting Buccaneers managed to edge out the still-winless Yetis 4-3.

The scoring was a bit of a see-saw affair, with the teams trading goals throughout the game. Nanaimo got on the board first with a powerplay goal about eight minutes into the game. A few minutes later, Roberts notched his first goal, with Boden Davis drawing an assist on the play.

In the second period, Nanaimo’s Brendan Rogers scored his first of two on the night to give Nanaimo the lead again at the 1:02 mark. About two minutes later, Roberts tied it up again, with help from Jordan Neufeld and Shaun Ropcean. Ten minutes later though, Rogers put the Bucs back in front.

Just over two minutes into the third, Noah Goyer tied it up again for the home side. Ropcean and Damian Rennie drew assists on the goal. With under five minutes to play, Nanaimo broke the tie for good. Comox Valley pulled the goal for the extra attacker but could not muster up a fourth goal.

Glacier King goaltender Jacob Bennett got the start and stopped 33 of 37 shots. He has now played five games for the Glacier Kings. Originally from Alberta, he played junior with the Lloydminster Bobcats before moving to the Golden Rockets of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League.

Next up for the Glacier Kings is a trip to Peninsula on Friday night. They’re back home on Saturday to host the Saanich Braves.
