Comox Valley Glacier Kings split weekend VIJHL games

Yetis host Oceanside this Friday then return the visit on Saturday

You win some, you lose some.

And that’s the way things went for the Comox Valley Glacier Kings on the weekend as they split their games, clipping Peninsula Panthers 3-2 Friday on the road then dropping a 4-3 decision to the Nanaimo Buccaneers Saturday at home.

The results left the Icemen in third place in the North Division of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League standings.

On Oct. 3 at the Comox Valley Sports Centre, the Bucs built a 3-1 lead in the first period then held on for the win. Grayden McInnes, Sheldon Brett and Liam Nijhoff taller for the Yetis, with Nijhoff named first star and goalie Calder Stark second star. The G-Kings out-shot Nanaimo 30-24

On Oct. 2 at the Panorama Recreation Centre, Tyson Slater scored the game winner at 6:06 of the third period as the G-Kings edged the Panthers 3-2. Peninsula took the lead just eight seconds into the game (Cameron Thompson), but the visitors got that one back when Kyle Keeder scored an unassisted power-play goal at 13:30 of the first.

Jake McKenzie’s unassisted shorthanded goal at the eight-minute mark of the second put the Yetis in front, only to have Peninsula pull even less than two minutes later (Kai Turner). Despite being out-shot 13-8 in the final frame, the Glacier Kings tallied the only goal of the period.

The Panthers out-shot the Icemen 29-24, with Stark earning first star honours. He stood strong in the final two minutes when the Panthers pressed for the equalizer with their goalie on the bench in favour of the extra attacker.

The Icemen are back in action this weekend with a home-and-away series with the Oceanside Generals. On Friday, Oct. 9 they host the Generals in a 7:30 p.m. start at Sports Centre #1 and on Saturday, Oct. 10 they are in Oceanside for a 7:30 p.m. puck drop.
