Teasdale leads the way in victory with a goal and an assist

Matthew Teasdale led the way with a goal and an assist as the Comox Valley Glacier Kings finally notched their first win of the season on Saturday.

The team hosted the Saanich Braves and jumped out to a lead at the 5:2o mark of the first when Teasdale scored, with a helper from Jordan Neufeld. Ten minutes later on the powerplay, the Yetis added to their lead with a goal from Noah Goyer. Damian Rennie drew an assist on the play.

In the second period, Saanich fought back and scored with the man advantage, but Comox Valley added a third goal, this time from Tanner Roberts. Teasdale had an assist on the goal.

The Braves scored once more on the powerplay in the third period, but the visitors could not muster up the tying goal.

Jacob Bennett turned aside 26 of 28 shots to backstop the Glacier Kings to the win.

The previous night, the team lost on the road 4-2 to the Peninsula Panthers, leaders of the south division. Clayton Bono and Jack Fairfield scored for Comox Valley.
