Campbell River hockey squad bounces back from narrow loss at Juan de Fuca to top Cowichan Sunday

This past weekend the Nyrstar Atom B Tyees headed out of town to play two games. On Saturday, against the Juan de Fuca Atom B2 team, the Tyees played great and had the lead the whole game. They were up 2-1 going into the third period on goals by Kobe Koizumi, but found themselves in some penalty trouble in the third period and lost 3-2. Goaltender Macklin Johnson had a strong game and Owen Taylor and Tristan Watson contributed assists on Koizumi’s goals.

Then it was off to Duncan to play the Cowichan Valley Atom B team, where the Tyees bounced back with a 4-2 win. The Tyees took a 3-0 lead into the the third period and, after Cowichan managed to get two quick goals, the Tyees pulled off one more clinch the win.  Jasper van de Vlasakker picked up the win in goal, while Liam MacKinnon, Cole McIntosh, Thomas Nelson and Koizumi each found the back of the net in the win.

The team sent out its thanks to Nyrstar for providing the team with one of its buses for the weekend, and to PW Transit Canada and its driver, Dave, for a great weekend.
