Glacier Kings lose two close ones

Icemen hosting Nanaimo on Saturday in an important North Division tilt


Just when the rain began falling in the Comox Valley, the goals began drying up for the Comox Valley Glacier Kings.

The Yetis had their seven-game winning streak snapped this past weekend as they dropped a pair of close, low-scoring contests. On Oct. 13 they were blanked 1-0 by the Peninsula Panthers and on Oct. 14 they were edged 2-1 by the Oceanside Generals.

The Glacier Kings are still in first place in the North Division of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League but are looking over their shoulder at the second-place Nanaimo Buccaneers, who will be riding a modest two-game winning streak into Courtenay tomorrow night when they take on the Icemen in a 7:30 p.m. start at Comox Valley Sports Centre Arena No. 1.

The Yetis hosted the Panthers this past Saturday, and Cody Allison (the third star) scored the game’s only goal midway through the second period. Peninsula outshot Comox Valley 31-30, with first-star Stephen Heslop getting the shutout and second-star Josh Round tagged with the hard-luck loss.

On Oct. 14 the Yetis were in Parksville for a matinee with the Generals. Round (third star) was even busier in this outing as he faced 47 shots in the 2-1 loss.

Michael Fretz netted the only goal of the first period to give Oceanside the lead. Michael Scobie’s seventh of the season pulled the visitors even at 7:29 of the second, but first-star Taylor Gray’s power-play goal at 11:10 proved to be the difference.

Round turned aside 18 shots in the third period to keep his team in the game, but the Glacier Kings couldn’t net the equalizer even with Round on the bench in favour of an extra attacker in the final minute.

ICE CHIPS Jordan Kamprath leads the Glacier Kings scoring with nine goals and 11 assists, with his 20 points tying him for sixth in league scoring … Nanaimo has taken two of three games from the Yetis this year, winning 5-4 in OT and 3-2 in early September then losing 6-2 in early October … after dropping their fifth straight game last week, the Campbell River Storm said sayonara to head coach Rob Voltera, assistant coach Dave Wing and goalie coach Tyson Hicks and handed the reins to former assistant coach Ryan Toporowski …
