The Peewee B Tyees split their weekend games against Nanaimo and Cowichan Valley.

Peewee Bs get split in tiering round

Saturday the team played an edge of your seat game at the Nanaimo Ice Centre

Mainstream Biological Consulting Peewee B Tyees had another busy weekend of hockey playing two VIAHA tiering round games.

Saturday the team played an edge of your seat game at the Nanaimo Ice Centre against the Clippers, a team the Tyees have come up against twice previously with both matches ended in the Clippers favour.  This game the team played for the win the entire game keeping the shots firing on the opponents net and clearing the puck with good defensive play and goaltending when the Clippers brought the puck into the Tyee zone.

The first two periods saw the scoreboard remain empty despite a five-on-three advantage with several scoring chances for the Tyees and a four-minute power play for the Clippers.

Going into the third, the Campbell River Tyees put the pressure on with at least six good scoring chances when Ben Wellman put a puck in the net with under 7 minutes to go in the game.

Shortly after a rebound shot by Gordon Ludvigson, on his first game of the season after returning from injury, would make it 2-0.

With Nanaimo getting a rebound shot into the Tyees net in the final minutes of play the Tyees went home with a well deserved 2-1 win.

Sunday’s home game against the Cowichan Valley Capitals was an entirely different game with the team being outshot and outplayed resulting in a loss with a score of 8-3.

On Saturday, the team will be out in the community on a fundraising bottle drive.

On Sunday they will travel to Port Hardy for an exhibition game against TriPort.
