Glacier Kings bounce Buccaneers 6-2

VIJHL North Division leaders open three-point lead over Nanaimo in standings

 

 

The Comox Valley Glacier Kings ran their winning streak to five Thursday night by defeating the Nanaimo Buccaneers 6-2 in The Harbour City.

The win allowed the first-place Icemen (5-3-0-1) to stretch their lead over second-place Nanaimo (4-6-0-0) to three points atop the North Division of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League.

Jordan Kamprath (first star) led the charge with two goals and one assist while Liam Shaw (second star) and Steven Garcia (third star) added one goal and one assist each.

Rylan Ball and Adam Robertson netted the other Comox Valley goals. Chipping in with one helper each were Garrett Halls, Desmond Bast, Cody Eliason, Nicholas Tupper, Wade Bartlett and Mitch Ball.

Former Glacier King goalie Cameron Large gave up five goals on 14 shots in the first period before giving way at the 17:38 mark to Riley Medves, who blocked 18-of-19 the rest of the way.

The visitors made that 5-0 lead stand up as the Bucs could beat AP Bryce DeRocco only twice, once in the second and once in the third. DeRocco stopped 20 shots for his first win as a Yeti.

The Glacier Kings went 1-for-6 on the power play while Nanaimo was 0-for-6 with the man advantage.

Gavin’s goal was his first of the season while Rylan Ball and Kamprath now share the team goal-scoring lead with six apiece. Kamprath’s 15 points has him tied for sixth in league scoring.

The Icemen are back in action tonight (Oct. 5) when they host the Kerry Park Islanders in a 7:30 p.m. start at Comox Valley Sports Centre Arena #1.

The Isles are winless in eight games but forced the Glacier Kings to overtime before falling 6-5 on Sept. 29 in Kerry Park.

On Saturday the Yetis hit the road for a game against the Oceanside Generals (3-6-0-1) who are in fourth place in the VIJHL North but trail the Glacier Kings by just four points.
