Peoples Drug Mart and peoples Pharmacy Peewee Hurricanes had another busy weekend of hockey, hosting Peninsula and Nanaimo last weeekend.

The Hurricanes dominated the first period Saturday at Rod Brind’ Amour Arena against Peninsula, with two unassisted goals from Martine Thompson and Cassidy Bellavance.

However the girls seemed to get caught up in the aggressive play, allowing Peninsula to tie it up in the second period of the game.

The Hurricanes fought hard, but an early third period goal from Peninsula ended the scoring for both teams and the Hurricanes came out on the wrong end of a 3-2 final score.

Sunday’s game brought equal competition for the Hurricanes, but the ever persistent girls were not going to allow another loss.

The Hurricanes remembered their core skills, making better, smarter passes. The Hurricanes’ Hailey Hunter found the net first with an assist from Bellavance. Nanaimo fought back and tied the game up.

But it was short lived, as both Bellavance and Hunter found the net, tallying two more unassisted goals for the Campbell River team and going into the second frame with a two goal lead.

Nanaimo’s second goal of the game would be the only goal for either team in the second period of play. Hurricane Kylie Scammell’s first goal of the game at the 13 minute mark of the third remained the only goal for both teams in the last period of play, giving the Hurricanes a 4-2 victory.
