Comox Valley Glacier Kings win on road, lose at home in VIJHL action

Two close games produced a win and a loss for the Comox Valley Glacier Kings in Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League action last week.

The Yetis had no luck on Friday, Nov. 13 on home ice, falling 6-5 to Oceanside Generals at home, but bounced back Saturday, Nov. 14 to edge the Kerry Park Islanders 3-2 in Kerry Park.

Ronnie Wilkie staked the Icemen to a 1-0 first period lead on Saturday, then after the Islanders had rallied to take a 2-1 lead by the mid-way mark of the second stanza, Grant Iles and Curtis Csuk tallied to earn the G-Kings the win.

Comox Valley out-shot Kerry Park 28-25, with Paul Broadbent picking up the win.

Friday the 13th produced a rarity when the Oceanside Generals won just their third game of the season, 6-5 at the Comox Valley Sports Centre. The visitors led 2-0 after one period and 6-3 after two.

The Yetis got within one goal twice but lost despite out-shooting Oceanside 42-22. Broadbent was tagged with the loss; Braddock Otton played 20 minutes in net.

Dayton Keith, Wilkie, Grayden McInnes, Jordan Bautista and Kyle Wade scored for the G-Kings with Csuk chipping in with two helpers.

The schedule gets tough for the Yetis this weekend with three games in three days, including two on the road against the league’s two top teams.

The G-Kings play North Division leading Campbell River Storm on Nov. 20 in C.R., host Peninsula Panthers on Nov. 21 (7:30 p.m. SC#1) and visit South Division leading Victoria Cougars on Nov. 22.
