Glacier Kings taking care of business in overtime

Comox Valley squad wins three straight VIJHL games in extra time

Taking care of business and working overtime.

That’s the tune the Comox Valley Glacier Kings have been whistling lately as they have won three of their last four games in OT to maintain their hold on second place in the North Division of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League.

After a wild 9-8 OT win Nov. 22 against Nanaimo Buccaneers, the Yetis went into extra time to beat Peninsula Panthers 4-3 on Nov. 28 and Campbell River Storm 2-1 on Nov. 29.

They came close to a fourth straight four-period game on Nov. 30 but dropped a 3-2 decision to the Storm in Campbell River.

The North Division leading Storm snapped the Icemen’s three-game win streak Sunday despite a sterling 34-save performance by Blake Pearson, which earned him third-star honours.

The teams were tied 0-0 after one period and 2-2 after two. First star Connor Logan’s second goal of the game early in the third was the winner. Ty Madden and Liam Shaw scored for the G-Kings.

On Nov. 29 in Courtenay, Dylan Sampson (first star) scored early in OT to pace the Yetis past the Storm 2-1. Sheldon Brett had the other Comox Valley goal. The visitors out-shot their hosts 36-19, with Pearson picking up the win and second star accolades.

On Nov. 28 the Yetis overcame a 3-0 second period deficit, and Brett’s second goal of the game in the second OT period gave the visiting G-Kings the 4-3 win over Peninsula.

Zachary Straza earned the win as the Panthers out-shot the Icemen 29-26. Franco Colapaolo and Sampson had the other Comox Valley tallies.

The Yetis are in Nanaimo tonight (Dec. 4) to play the Bucs then return home Saturday (Dec. 6) to host the Storm. On Sunday (Dec. 7) they visit the Kerry Park Islanders.

ICE CHIPS The Glacier Kings made two player moves prior to the Dec. 1 cutdown date … they shipped Quinlan Moore to Nanaimo and moved Mitchell Hawes up the the BCHL Powell River Kings …
