Campbell River Atom A Tyees take their act on the road

Compete in a pair of hard fought matches down-Island

The Campbell River REHN Enterprises Atom A Tyees packed their workboots and road black with orange and white trim jerseys and headed south for a couple of games last weekend.

They started off on Saturday in Port Alberni against the Bulldogs with a 2 -1 loss where they battled hard and badly outshot their opponents, but ran into a hot Bulldog goalie who stopped just about everything the Tyees could throw at him.  Campbell River found themselves down 2-0 when a couple of bad decisions ended up with the puck behind goalie Marcus Shankar against the flow of play.  The lone Tyee tally came when Evan Billard fought off a check at Port Alberni’s blueline and fed the puck to Jacob Thomas who scored on a high, hard wrist shot.

Sunday saw the Tyees in Oceanside for a Tier 1 division game against the Generals.  The hard fought, back and forth game ended in a 5-5 tie.

Once again, Campbell River found themselves down 2-0 early, but Nolan Wyatt stripped an Oceanside defender of the puck and fed a wide open Alex Movold who cut the lead to 2-1.  Oceanside replied to make it 3-1, but the Tyees refused to give up.  Wyatt Dumont found Alex Movold skating down the right side with a beautiful cross ice pass.  Movold went in 2-on-1 with Bryce Idiens and scored with a low wrister between the goalie’s legs. Brian Majic walked in and fired a shot over the goalie’s shoulder. Tyees goaltender Josh Doherty did his part by stopping a couple of odd man rushes with the Generals crashing his net to keep the game tied 3-3. The Tyees went up 4-3 when Idiens scored into the top right corner after getting a pass from Movold and driving hard to the outside around the lone defender. After Oceanside tied the game on a powerplay goal, Majic scored his second of the game.
