Glacier Kings snap six-game losing skid

The Comox Valley Glacier Kings snapped a six-game losing streak by defeating the Victoria Cougars 5-2 on the road Thursday, Nov. 9.

Matteo Giomo and Ty Madden each scored twice, while Ben Alexander added an empty net goal for the Yetis. Goalie Noah Giesbrecht stopped 31 shots in his first game with the Kings. Giomo, Madden and Giesbrecht were the game’s first, second and third stars, respectively.

The following night at home, the Kings lost 4-3 to the Oceanside Generals. After a scoreless first period, Oceanside drew first blood at the 3:10 mark of the second, but Giomo evened the score at 8:34, assisted by Finn Withey. The Generals opened the scoring 39 seconds into the third period, but Willie Daigneault again tied the score for the Yetis, assisted by Giomo and Scott Arbuckle.

Oceanside went up 3-2 less than two minutes later, and made it 4-2 on a power play goal at 18:29. Withey scored short-handed at 18:59 but the visitors hung on for the win.

Giomo was selected second star of the game, and Daigneault was third star. Braedyn Funke was in net for the Yetis, who outshot Oceanside 37-33.

After 20 games, the Glacier Kings’ record is 3-16-0-1.
