The Campbell River Storm triumphed in an exhibition double-header against the Comox Valley Glacier Kings on the weekend.

The Storm beat the Glacier Kings 6-5 on Saturday in Comox and then returned to the friendly confines of Rod Brind’Amour Arena on Sunday to take it to the Kings 7-4.

The Storm held a tailgate party in the Strathcona Gardens parking lot to benefit Cameryn’s Cause and the goodwill spilled over into the arena as Campbell River stormed to an early lead and held on for the victory. Sunny skies didn’t seem to hamper the ticket sales as a three-quarters-full house enjoyed a flurry of goals.

The Storm open their season 7:30 p.m. Friday at Rod Brind’Amour Arena against the Victoria Cougars.
