Atoms take on Nanaimo

Grieg Seafood Atom A Tyees come away with one tie and one loss in another busy weekend of hockey.

Grieg Seafood Atom A Tyees come away with one tie and one loss in another busy weekend of hockey.

Last Saturday the team faced the Clippers in Nanaimo. The home team was on the scoreboard within the first few minutes of the game, but the Tyees gained the lead by the end of the first period with both Braydon Kratzmann and Damien Rennie finding the back of the Clippers’ net.

But a Nanaimo power play at the start of the second saw the Clippers tie the game 2-2.

On another Nanaimo power play, it was the Tyees who took advantage.

Rennie’s slap sho hit the top of the goaltender’s glove and then dropped nicely past the goal line.

The Tyees would gain a two-goal lead when Rennie scored again, for a hat trick, assisted by Kratzmann and affiliate player Grady Robertson.

At the end of the second period, Coulsen McCartney, assisted by River Fahey, buried the puck to make it a three-goal lead.

But the final frame was riddled with penalties for the Tyees resulting in many shots on net by the Clippers. Despite several saves by the Tyee goaltender, the Clippers tied the game which ended in 5-5 draw.

On Sunday morning the Tyees faced the Powell River Kings. The Tyees continued to play well together but were not able to keep up with the stronger Kings. The final score was 9-4 for Powell River.

Next up for the Tyees is a home game on Saturday against Nanaimo at 4:45 p.m. and on Sunday the Tyees play the Racquet Club at 10 a.m. in Victoria.
