The KLP Construction Bantam A Tyees started the 2016/2017 season out strongly during the tiering round, suffering only one loss to Comox, placing them in the Tier one division for the remainder of the year.

The Tyees then headed to Pennisula for their first of four tournaments, and came home tournament champions after strong performances from all the boys.

Regular season games started last weekend against Juan De Fuca and  the Tyees came out strong scoring the first goal of the game with 10 minutes left in the first period.

Brian Majic and Austin Gurney set up the play and Sam Gale sealed the deal, giving the team the one goal lead.

The boys battled hard, and had many scoring opportunities but would be unable to score again in the first.

Juan De Fuca would get their first goal of the game at 17:28 in the second period, tying the game at one a piece.

The game would not stay tied for long as Logan Chapdelaine and Robert Gurney assisted Parker Bell in scoring the second Tyee goal of the game.

Juan De Fuca battled back scoring two quick goals and ending the second period with a 3-2 lead.

Goalie Jared McAneeley, along with his teammates worked hard to fend off the opposition, but Juan de Fuca would score three more goals in the third, ending the game in a 6-2 loss for the Tyees.

The team heads off to Penticton this weekend where they hope to claim their second tournament victory.
