Midget Tier 1 hockey team takes out Nanaimo in best-of-three series







Happy’s Source for Sports Midget Tier 1 Chiefs played hard this past weekend against Nanaimo to win the Vancouver Island Amateur Hockey Association Midget Tier 1 Championship.

It was a very close series with everything resting on the third game of a best-of-three series Saturday at the Comox Valley Sports Centre. Happy’s Source for Sports players came out in the first period determined to win. It was a fast-paced game with lots of back and forth.

The only goal of the game came at 10:15 in the first period when Hobin Zinck made a pass to Justin Mirabelli who then made a quick pass to Kyle LeBlanc as they were breaking across the Nanaimo blue line. LeBlanc charged to the net with a back hand going five hole on the Nanaimo goaltender.

Matt Bowell played an excellent game, stopping all challenges and getting the shutout. Next stop for the Comox Midget team is Abbotsford for the Provincial Midget Tier 1 tournament on March 17-21.

“The players thank their coaches, Gord Lennox and Stuart Garrood, their sponsor Happy’s Source for Sports and last but not least manager Michelle Card,” a team spokesperson said.
