‘Canes clip Nanaimo’s wings

Peewee girls send Clippers home with a 7-3 loss Sunday

The Peewee Hurricanes welcomed the Nanaimo Clippers to town Sunday, though few would say they were hospitable.

Neither team could seem to get much going in terms of offensive pressure for much of the first period until Mackenzie Cameron got the Clippers on the board with 13 seconds remaining on the clock.

Cameron would add a second goal five minutes into the second period, which seemed to be just the spark Campbell River needed to get going. Kiana Danielson would start the scoring avalance for the Hurricanes a minute and a half later, then add a second less than a minute after that.

Kailie Rieker would put the ‘Canes into the lead just after the half-way mark of the period and Dexter Manrique would extend the Hurricanes’ lead to two before the period was out.

Hurricanes’ goaltender McKenna Harris was proving to be a tough opponent for the Clippers and the Hurricanes would continue to roll on offence in the third.

Samarah Drygasuk found the net behind Clippers’ goaltender Brooklyn Barootes four minutes in, but Michaela Keeling would get one back for the Clippers at the half way mark of the third.

That’s as close as the Clippers would get, however. Drygasuk added a second with 2:32 left, and Danielson would finish her hat trick with 1:04 remaining, bringing the final score to 7-3 for the home team.
