Spartans knock off Wookies

Good action at both ends of the ice in PeeWee House minor hockey game

 

 

 

The CV Investor’s Group Spartans and the CV Preferred Woodfinishing Wookies PeeWee House hockey teams met Nov. 10 in what was was billed as a  ‘Clash of the Titans.’ While Preferred Woodfinishing paid meticulous attention to detail, the good money at the end of the game, went with Investor’s Group.

The play was back and forth during the first period with both teams having almost equal scoring opportunities. The Spartans capitalized twice with a goal halfway through the period by Kyle Sheehan after a pass from defenceman Andrew Burgess and an unassisted goal by Dale Curror toward the end of the first.

The Spartans were awesome in shutting down the Wookies offence during their only penalty kill of the game, with solid checking by Will Derksen, Payton Silvester patrolling the blue line and goalie Isaac L’Arrivee being a wall of power.

In the second period the Spartans worked hard at picking up the rebounds,which was rewarded by a goal for John Burgess. There were many beautiful passes, one resulting in a goal for Nick Corriea after a long tape-to-tape pass from Burgess. There was nice use of the boards and many scoring opportunities created by the Spartans offence: Liam Court, Dylan Munger, Cole Phillips and Jake Skidnuk. The Spartans wrapped up the third period with an unassisted goal by Curror off the rebound, and a final goal by Griffin Jamieson assisted by Curror.

While both teams played very well, the  Spartans had some extra mojo this morning, helped in large part by their cohesive teamwork and by their man between the pipes L’Arrivee, who had his second shutout of the season with an awesome 20 saves. The Spartans thank their sponsor Investor’s Group for their terrific support this season.
