Yetis in third place in Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League North Division

The Comox Valley Glacier Kings bounced back from a tough road less to post an impressive home-ice victory in Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League action last week.

The Yetis were edged 5-4 by the Cougars in Victoria on Nov. 5 but turned things around on Nov. 7 at the Comox Valley Sports Centre, blanking the Nanaimo Buccaneers 2-0.

The results left the Icemen (10-7-0-3) three points back of the Bucs (12-7-1-1) and Campbell River Storm (12-5-1-1-), who are tied for first place in the North Division with 26 points each.

Paul Broadbent kicked out 29 shots on Nov. 7 to backstop the G-Kings to the 2-0 win over Nanaimo, earning second star honours for the goose egg.

First star Jack Mackenzie had a goal and an assist while third star Curtis Card netted the other Comox Valley marker into an empty net.

On Nov. 5 at Archie Browning Arena, the Yetis were out-shot 48-30 but hung tough with the Capital City Cats most of the way.

It was 1-1 after one and 3-3 after two and the Cougars popped a couple of quick goals in the third. The visitors got one back, but no more.

Second star Grayden McInnes scored twice for the G-Kings with Brandon McReynolds and McKenzie tallying one each. Kyle Wade chipped in with three helpers. Broadbent took the loss.

The Yetis return to action this weekend with a home game Nov. 13 against Oceanside Generals (7:30 p.m. SC#1) and an away contest with Kerry Park Islanders on Nov. 14.

 

ICE CHIPS McInnes leads team scoring with 24 points (9g, 15) and is tied for ninth in league scoring while McReynolds is right behind with 21 points (13g, 8a) … Broadbent’s eight wins are second in the league …
