Glacier Kings riding nine-game winning streak

Yetis hosting Campbell River Storm Saturday night at Sports Centre

The Comox Valley Glacier Kings will be looking for their 10th straight win tonight when they take on the Nanaimo Buccaneers in The Harbour City.

The Yetis continued their torrid victory streak on the weekend, sweeping the Oceanside Generals in a home-and-home series. The G-Kings won 8-2 at home on Nov. 8 and 4-2 in Parksville on Nov. 9.

Friday night in Courtenay, first star Duncan Pernal’s three-goal, one-assist performance paced the Icemen. Landon Walters, Jonas Horvath, third-star Sheldon Brett, Brendyn Smith and Liam Shaw had the other Comox Valley goals. Jeff Penman and Quinlan Moore chipped in two helpers each.

Michael Hails earned second star honours, kicking out 21 shots to earn the win in net. Evgueni Makarski took the loss, playing half the game before being replaced by Liam Giroux.

The Yetis out-shot the Generals 35-23 and went 2-for-5 on the power play. The home team led 1-0 after one period and 6-1 after two.

Things were closer the next night when the teams met again in Parksville. Comox Valley led 1-0 after one and 2-1 after two. Oceanside pulled even early in the third, but Brett’s power-play goal at 7:48 and Smith’s empty-netter at 18:34 carried the visitors to victory.

Pernal (1g, 1a) was first star and Brett (1g, 1a) was second star. Shaw also had one goal and one assist while Derian Hamilton added two helpers.

Oceanside goalie Giroux was named third star as he kept his team in the game: Comox Valley out-shot Oceanside 41-27. The Generals have lost seven straight.
