Pee Wee B Tyees in tough against Nanaimo

Saturday saw Nanaimo in town and the home team took advantage of their road legs

The Legion Ladies Auxiliary Pee Wee B Tyees continued their tiering journey this past weekend with a pair of home tilts against Nanaimo and Port Alberni.

Saturday saw Nanaimo in town and the home team took advantage of their road legs by potting a quick goal early in the first thanks to Cole Dumont’s efforts.  The Tyees continued to pour the pressure and shots on the Clipper goalie, but could not find the back of the net. Nanaimo took advantage of some lucky bounces to take the lead until a beauty ‘bar down’ shot from Matt Block tied it at 2.

Unfortunately the visitors pulled away as the game wore on and, despite outshooting Nanaimo by a wide margin, the final score was 5-2 Clippers.

Sunday saw Alberni coming to the Brindi for an afternoon match and the script was eerily similar.  The Tyees again outshot their opponent, but could not beat the Alberni goalie.  Excellent efforts by the 2 Tylers; Wingert and Jochimski helped tie the game at 2.  But penalty problems  put the Tyees back on their heels and the score ended up 4-2 in favour of the visitors.

New goalie Bailey Demuth put in an excellent effort in both games and his courage under fire was very impressive in his first ever rep hockey goalie experience. Coach Andrew was happy with the team’s compete level over the weekend and this bodes well for next weekend as the team heads to Port Alberni for the annual ‘Turkey Tournament’ in that city.
