Glacier Kings win one of three games in busy stretch of VIJHL action

In a busy three days of Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League action, the Comox Valley Glacier Kings picked up two points after posting a win and two losses.

The fun started Nov. 18 with the G-Kings losing 4-3 to the Peninsula Panthers, continued Nov. 19 with a 4-2 home-ice win ver the Oceanside Generals, and concluded Nov. 20 with a 4-2 loss to the Campbell River Storm.

The results left the Yetis (15-9-0) in second place in the North Division, nine points back of the first-place Storm (20-5-0) and five points up on third-place Nanaimo Buccaneers (13-11-0).

Sunday afternoon in Campbell River, the Storm struck for two goals in 24 seconds midway through the first period with Finn Withey getting the Icemen on the board at 17:36.

The teams traded second-period tallies, and Campbell River netted a third period power play goal to take the worry out of being close. Tempers flared after the goal with Cleary Ambrose of Comox Valley Reid Wilson of Campbell River tossed for fighting.

The Storm out-shot the G-Kings 44-18, with Zaakery Myrowich taking the loss.

Saturday night at the Comox Valley Sports Centre, the Yetis fell behind 1-0 in the first period and trailed 2-0 before battling back to take the game on power-play goals by Jake McKenzie and Scott Rademaker.

First star Dylan Paavola put the Icemen in front for the first time at 13:16 of the third, and Jackson Gibson  added an empty netter at 19:52 to seal the deal. Shots on goal were 29-26 for Comox Valley, with Myrowich picking up the win.

On Nov. 18 in Peninsula, the Panthers and Glacier Kings played it tight, with the home team out-shooting the visitors 32-17 en route to the 4-3 win.

Peninsula led 3-1 after one period and it was 3-2 after two. Marcelo Pericao cut the lead to one at 16:04 of the third, but Marshall Brown’s power-play tally at 19:43 was the difference.

The Glacier Kings close out the November portion of their schedule this Saturday, Nov. 26 when they host the Storm in a 7:30 p.m. start at Sports Centre Arena #1.
