The weekend brought victory home yet again for the Brown’s Bay Packing Atom A Tyees.

The boys played their rivals the Comox Chiefs Friday on home ice, and and after a hard fought battle, defeated the Chiefs 7-3.  The Tyees took a two-goal lead after the first period of play and set the pace for the remainder of the game.

River Fahey scored the Tyees’ first goal with assists going to Owen Parker and Noah Fladager.

Logan Chapdelaine assisted Davis Frank with nine minutes left in the first to give the Tyees a 2-0 lead. In the second period, the Chiefs notched two goals, but the Tyees answered back with three more of their own. The first Tyee goal was scored by Frank and assisted by Cole Devlin. Grady Robertson scored the team’s fourth goal, with assists going to Brendan Almer and Evan Fox. Defenceman Dakota Sinclair  provided Jalen Price with a beautiful pass that gave the Tyees a 5-2 advantage.

Fahey and Fladager worked their magic again, just a minute into the third when a pass from Fladager would be just what Fahey needed to bring the score to 6-3.  Frank notched get his third hat trick of the season with the last Tyee goal of the game, once again assisted by Chapdelaine.  Game stars go to Goaltender Jayce Haduk and Defenceman  Chapdelaine.

Sunday’s game against Victoria brought the Tyees another victory with a final score of 3-1. Fahey scored two unassisted goals for the Tyees, while Price got one goal with an assist going to Frank. Goaltender Sam Ellis made a great save off a penalty shot by Victoria in the third period, leading the Tyees to victory.  Games stars for Sunday’s game go to Defenceman Kayle Majic and Goaltender Ellis.
