Glacier Kings take two from Islanders

Yetis win three of four in an extended Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League series

Familiarity breeds content.

That update on a familiar adage comes courtesy of the Comox Valley Glacier Kings after they won the final two games of a four-game series with the Kerry Park Islanders.

The Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League schedule matched the two teams up for four consecutive meetings over a nine-day period. After splitting the first two games, the Glacier Kings took the last two, winning 4-2 Oct. 18 in Kerry Park and 4-3 in overtime Oct. 19 in Courtenay.

Keeping with the four-in-a-row theme, the Yetis tallied four straight power-play goals to erase a 2-0 deficit en route to their Oct. 18 road win. Duncan Pernal and newcomer Derian Hamilton both had a goal and two assists for the Icemen while Sheldon Brett and Ali Gotmy added one goal and one helper apiece.

The Islanders led 2-0 after the first period with the Icemen pulling even in the second then sealing the deal in the third. Comox Valley went 4-for-7 on the power play, with second-star Pernal’s empty netter clinching the win with 33 seconds left in the game.

The Glacier Kings out-shot the Islanders 44-31 with Michael Hails the winner and third-star Leighton Williams taking the loss.

The teams were right back at it the next night at the Comox Valley Sports Centre where Gotmy’s sixth goal of the year at 4:14 of the first overtime period was the difference in a 4-3 Glacier Kings’ victory.

The Yetis led 2-1 after one period and were up 3-1 midway through the second before the visitors tallied twice in a two-minute span to send the game into OT.

Gotmy, Hamilton and Pernal all had one goal and one assist for the home team while third star Liam Shaw netted the other goal. The Icemen out-shot the Isles 36-23 with losing goalie Jackson Jane accorded first-star honours and winner Scott Legault earning second-star accolades.

The Glacier Kings were in Parksville for a Sunday matinee with the Oceanside Generals where they won 3-0.

ICE CHIPS In a move Oct. 16 involving two 19-year-old players, the Glacier Kings released forward Andre Lewis and added defenceman Derian Hamilton from the Nanaimo Buccaneers … Lewis had no points through six games with the Yetis this season while Hamilton had 11 points (2g, 9a) through 12 games with the Bucs … Pernal has moved into the Top 10 in VIJHL scoring, tied for fifth with 21 points and tied for third in goals with 13 … upcoming games for the Yetis include Oct. 28 when Westshore comes to town and Oct. 31 when they will try to throw a scare into the Buccaneers in Nanaimo …
