Comox Valley Glacier Kings drop three straight games

Yetis hoping to get back on winning track in VIJHL this weekend

The Campbell River Storm and Victoria Cougars are battling for top spot in the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League.

The Comox Valley Glacier Kings became  collateral damage in that battle last week, losing 9-1 to the Storm and 4-2 to the Cougars.

Dropping decisions to the respective division leaders is one thing, but the Icemen also suffered a 3-2 loss to South Division cellar dwellers Peninsula Panthers.

Friday night in Campbell River the North Island division leaders whipped the G-Kings 9-1, leading 3-1 after one and 7-1 after two.

Campbell River out-shot Comox Valley 41-20 with Paul Broadbent taking the loss. He played 25 minutes before giving way to Braddock Otton. Ronnie Wilkie had the lone Glacier King goal.

Saturday night at the Comox Valley Sports Centre the Yetis led 2-1 after one period before falling to the Panthers. The home team out-shot the visitors 30-22 with Broadbent taking the loss. Wilkie and Brandon McReynolds scored for the Icemen.

Sunday afternoon in Victoria the teams were tied 1-1 after one with Victoria stretching a 2-1 second-period lead into a 3-1 advantage early in the third.

Nathan Loosyen’s second goal of the game at 18:37 sealed the deal for the Capital City Cats.

Wilkie and Grayden McInnes tallied for the G-Kings.

The Glacier Kings (11-11-0) remain in third place in the North Division, two points back of second-place Nanaimo Buccaneers (12-10-1).

The Yetis have a rematch with Victoria this Saturday, Nov. 28 at the Comox Valley Sports Centre with game time 7:30 p.m. On Sunday the Icemen are in Parksville to play the Oceanside Generals in a 2:30 p.m. start.
