On Sept. 29 the Comox Valley Mazda PeeWee A Chiefs squared off against the Nanaimo Clippers for the second time of the young minor hockey season. The Clippers had a physical first half of a game while the Chiefs started without their regular jump.
However, with great effort and grit the Chiefs battled hard in the second half of the game to come within one goal with 2:43 remaining in the third period. The Chiefs pulled their goalie to gain a man advantage because of a Clipper penalty. Unfortunately, Nanaimo scored an empty net goal to win 5-3.
“It looks like there will be a great rivalry and many close games with Nanaimo this season. Well done, boys,” a team spokesperson said.
