The Rich’s Auto Collision Midget A Tyees packed a powerful punch, winning their first two league games as well as silver.
In its first league game, the Tyees faced off against Juan de Fuca in Grizzly territory but Juan de Fuca was no match with the Tyees slamming the Grizzlies with a 6-1 win.
The Tyees then went on to tackle the Victoria Classic Midget Tournament where they battled the Cloverdale Colts in the gold medal game in their respective Flight C Division.
The game ended with the Tyees bringing home the silver.
On Sunday, the Tyees played an action packed game against the Oceanside Generals and with 20 power play minutes between the two teams, the Tyees came out on top, winning 3-2 with a short-handed goal from Brad Riddoch, assisted by Domenic Kolbeins early in the third period.
The Tyees boast a talented roster this year with Jordan Rauser (C), Alex Dragolov (A), Tyson Fair (A), Nick Beattie (A), Austin Stover-Pearson (A), James Severs, John Kretchschmar, Ryan Howich, Hunter Fahey, Landon Walters, Kolbeins, Tyler Clark, Colton Erickson, Calvin Chomeczko, Riddoch, and with Colton Thompson, Nathan Hoff and Tighearnon Marsh as goaltenders.
“I think the team is now benefitting from the high level competition they were exposed to during the Victoria Classic Midget Tournament,” said the Tyees head coach.
“The team played well this past weekend especially considering three of the top players ( Rauser, Fair and Chomeczko) were sidelined.
Three goalies split up the two games and all three put in solid performances.”
Next league action is Sunday when the Tyees host Powell River at 1:15 p.m. at Rod Brind’Amour Arena.
