Penalties wind up costing peewee Tyees
The Mainstream Biological Consulting Peewee B Tyees played its second league game last Saturday versus Saanich at Pearkes arena in Victoria.
The game started with a bang as Riley Billy put one past the Braves net minder but the rest of the period saw the Tyees trying to keep up and their goalkeeper stopping shot after shot. Saanich would tie up the game in the last five minutes of the period.
Five minutes into the second period affiliate player Heydon Campbell came down the ice in a breakaway on the power play to make a beauty shot that ended up in the upper right hand corner of the net to make it 2-1 for the Tyees. Ben Wellman and Dakota Sinclair also got on the scoreboard this game. A penalty shot for the Tyees in the third was stopped by Saanich which was soon followed by a Saanich goal on a two-man advantage. With over a couple minutes left on the clock and Saanich trailing one goal Saanich pulled its goalie but the Tyees came out on top with a win of 4-3. On Sunday the team faced Victoria Racquet Club. This game emotions proved to run high and despite the Tyees playing well against the faster team, the Tyees played shorthanded a lot of the time and goaltender Sam Ellis (with 37 blocked shots this game) and the Tyees defence were kept busy trying to keep the puck out of the net.
Sage Cameron and Wellman managed to get the puck past the RC goaltender with helpers from Gordon Ludvigson and Nicholas Williamson. Final score for this game, 7-2 Victoria. The Tyees are at home Saturday, Nov. 17 4 p.m. vs. Nanaimo in exhibition play and a league game at home on Sunday, Nov. 18 at 12:45 p.m. vs. the Oceanside Generals.
