Who invited Travis Briggs to the party?
The Comox Valley Glacier Kings were checking their guest list for an answer to that very question Wednesday night after Briggs’ two goals lifted the Oceanside Generals to a 2-1 victory in a Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League tilt at the Comox Valley Sports Centre.
Adam Robertson spotted the Yetis a 1-0 lead in the second period on a nice set-up by Desmond Bast before Briggs evened the count a few minutes later. Briggs netted the only goal of the third to give the visitors the win.
The game was a four-pointer for the teams as the Generals continued their pursuit of the North Division-leading Icemen. Oceanside (14-14-0-1) is now six points back of the Glacier Kings (16-11-0-3) with a game in hand.
The VIJHL is now on its holiday break. The second half of the season starts Jan. 5, when the Icemen will be in Victoria to take on the league-leading Cougars.
