The Legion Ladies Auxiliary Peewee B Tyees wrapped up their pre-Christmas schedule at the Brindi against the Cowichan Capitals Dec. 20.
Both teams gave the fans in attendance an early Christmas present with an entertaining game. The fearless fish went up 2-0 early with goals from Nathan ‘Loopsie’ Underhill with a great line effort by Wyatt Murray and Cole Dumont. The second tally came off a power play tip in by Kobe Koizumi after a neat d to d pass and shot from Brett Ruehlen to Ryan Deagle. Tyee goalie Bailey Demuth flashed leather numerous times to stop great chances in close. Cowichan kept up the pressure and with seconds to go were down by a goal, on the power play and the goalie was pulled; setting up a fantastic finish.
Unfortunately, it was fantastic for the Capitals, as they tied the game with 2.6 seconds on the clock. The Tyees were disappointed with the outcome, but were excited about Christmas, and then their tournament in Comox Dec. 28.
