Peewee playoff run continues

Campbell River's peewee B Tyees hang on for a 7-6 victory in a must-win game over Tri-Port Eagles

After a disappointing home ice loss to the Alberni Valley Bulldogs the previous week, the Mainstream Biological Consulting Peewee B Tyees squeezed out a 7-6 win while visiting the Tri-Port Eagles in Port McNeill last Saturday.

The Tyees found themselves up 6-2 after two periods on goals by Riory Young, Cole Devlin, Dakota Sinclair, Jordan Baker, Nathan Lagos and  Ridge Rosa. The Tyees also benefited from the tight goaltending of Jayce Hudak.

Perhaps over-confidence got the best of the Tyees going into the third as three unchecked Eagles’ forwards found the back of the Tyees net in less than three minutes to close the gap and make it 6-5.

Young gave the Tyees another two-goal lead and then Hudak held on in net for the victory.

With the crucial win, the Tyees continue their playoff run with another road trip on Saturday to play the Island Tier 3 semi-final in Sooke.
