Comox Valley squad defeats Campbell River Sharks in tight championship final

Comox Valley Minor Hockey Association Midget Recreation Division hosted a 16-team pre-Christmas hockey tournament from Dec. 21-23.

The tournament was a phenomenal success with eight teams attending from Victoria, Juan de Fuca, Nanaimo, Alberni Valley, Oceanside, Port MacNeill and two teams from Campbell River matching our own eight Midget Recreation teams (15-, 16-, 17-year-old boys and girls).

Each team played a round robin of three games within two pools following by a pool vs. pool final. The scores for all 32 games were close with more than a few games settled by exciting shootouts in the final. MVPs on each team in each game and first and second place finalists were awarded Tim cards in recognition of their efforts.

The tournament was won by Comox Valley Hamilton Logging in an exciting 6-5 final over Campbell River Sharks, who were hot on Hamilton Logging’s heels throughout the game.

Hamilton Logging is coached by Alan Dyck and assistant coach Lee McKillican; goalie Noah Koster; players: Chris Dodd, Adam McKillican, Will Drewry, Jarid Dyck, Matthew Dyck, Darrin Dyck, Hayden Leach, Logan Bood, Liam Patterson, Grayson Scott, James Share, Alexa Pollock, Brendan Russell, Luc McLaughlin and managed by Kathy Dyck.

Darin Dyck scored a goal unassisted with Chris Dodd scoring four thanks to three assists by Matt Dyck, an assist by Adam McKillican and two secondary assists by Alexa Pollock and one by James Share. Chris Dodd’s extraordinary fifth goal in a shootout won this very close and exciting game. The win was totally a team effort.

Comox Valley Minor Hockey Association has the largest number of Midget Integrated Recreation teams in addition to competitive Tier 1 and Tier 2 teams on Vancouver Island. We are also among the largest Midget Divisions in B.C.

Weekly competition between our eightteams includes two games a week, regular exhibition games with neighbouring Campbell River plus a series of fun exhibition games with our own Juvenile Division. We are always happy to register new players (male and female) who eager to get on the ice and enjoy Canada’s game.
