The Brown’s Bay Packing Atom A Tyees played their first league game on home ice Saturday against the Powell River Kings.

Both teams fought hard during the first period, but the Tyees dominated, and were able to take a one-goal lead.

With five minutes left on the clock, Tyee Cole Devlin scored the first goal of the game, with an assist from Jalen Price. The second period turned out to be as action packed, with the Tyees maintaining their intensity throughout.

Tyee Davis Frank scored a breakaway goal for the Tyees with just over six minutes left, and Price scored the game’s third goal with assists by Frank and Devlin. With just over two minutes left in the game, Frank got on the board again with another goal assisted by Price.

The Powell River Kings came back just twenty seconds later to score their only goal of the game, but this did not deter the Tyees.

With thirty two seconds to go, Price scored unassisted for the Tyees, and just ten seconds later Frank wowed with his third goal of the game, sealing the fate of the Powell River Kings and bringing the final score to 6-1. The three goal effort was Frank’s first hat trick of the season.
