A CLOSE CALL along the boards Wednesday in Westshore saw Glacier King Sasha Hahn avoid a check by Tyson Young while keeping his eye on the puck.

Glacier Kings lose 7-4 to Wolves

Same two teams meet again Saturday night in Courtenay

 

 

 

The Comox Valley Glacier Kings were on the scoreboard early. The Westshore Wolves were on it often.

And so it went Wednesday night at Bear Mountain Arena as the Wolves skated to a 7-4 Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League victory over the Icemen.

It was the fourth straight loss for the Yetis, who will be looking for revenge this Saturday (Dec. 8)  when they host the second half of the home-and-home series. Game time is 7:30 p.m. at Comox Valley Sports Centre Arena #1.

Wednesday at Westshore, the Glacier Kings cut the lead to 4-3 in the second period only to see the Wolves pull away in the third with two power-play goals and one shorthanded tally.

At even strength the Yetis were dominant, but the penalty kill was not as effective as it has

been in the past, with four of the Wolves’ goals coming with the man advantage, the team noted in a press release.

The Icemen went 1-for-5 on the power play and outshot the Wolves 38-34. Bryce DiRocco took the loss with Alec Dillon notching the win.

“We out-played them in all three periods I thought,” said Comox Valley head coach Bill Rotheisler. “When we get an opportunity we hit posts, or shoot wide, etc. and when they get an opportunity it seems to end up in the back of our

net. We need to polish some things up defensively and then we are good to go. Overall, it was a good game for the guys, and a much different overall feeling coming out of this one,” Rothleisler said.

“Our new additions (Tyson Rennie and Andrew White) played well, fit in real well and spent an overwhelming amount of their ice time in the offensive zone. Both contributed points last night.”

Rennie had an assist and White added a goal. Jordan Crisp and Mitch Ball each had a goal and an assist while Brook Trainor netted the other Comox Valley goal.
