Four-point performance leads Glacier Kings to victory over Storm

Jack Kennelly came up aces for the Comox Valley Glacier Kings as they dealt the Campbell River Storm a 5-1 loss.

Kennelly tallied four points to lead the Icemen to victory in Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League action Oct. 27 at the Comox Valley Sports Centre.

In two games since rejoining the Yetis, Kennelly has collected five points. On Saturday, the Port Alice native (who played last season with the Jr. A Weyburn Red Wings of the SJHL) tallied two goals – including the game winner on the power play – to go along with two assists.

He was an easy choice for game first star honours. Michael Scobie was the second star for his two-goal performance while Mitch Ball (one assist) was third star. Rylan Ball netted the other Yeti goal and added one helper.

The Glacier Kings outshot the Storm 30-19 with Josh Round picking up the win and Curtis Bagnall taking the loss. Comox Valley led 1-0 after one period and 3-1 after two.

Rylan Ball’s seventh of the season from John Gosbee at 12:17 was the only goal of the first frame. Kennelly from Garrett Halls and Mitch Ball at 12:54 on the power play made it 2-0.

Brady Janzen netted Campbell River’s only goal at 16:22 on the power play, with Scobie re-establishing the two-goal lead at 19:50 from Kennelly and Rylan Ball.

Kennelly’s third of the year from Sasha Hahn and Desmond Bast made it 4-1 just 1:38 into the third, and Scobie’s ninth of the season from Kennelly and Hahn wrapped things up at 10:12.

With the win, the Glacier Kings solidified their hold on first place in the North Division. They are five points up with three games in hand on the Oceanside Generals.

The Icemen return to action this weekend. They are in Campbell River to play the Storm on Friday then return home to host the Peninsula Panthers on Saturday, with game time 7:30 p.m. at the Comox Valley Sports Centre.

ICE CHIPS The Glacier Kings are second in the league in goals-for and third in goals-against …  the Icemen have lost only six games but two of those have been to Peninsula …
