The KLP Construction Peewee A Tyees hoped to keep their winning streak alive on Sat., Dec. 10 during an exhibition game against Oceanside.

Faced with several injuries, the Tyees called up goalie Nicholas Cain, forwards Daniel Gilson, Gavin Hope and Braydon Kratzmann from the Booster Juice Peewee B team for this game. Each played well and contributed to the team’s success.

The Tyees kept Oceanside pinned down at times in the first period but weren’t able to get the puck from the blue paint past the red line due to some stellar goaltending by Oceanside.  Tyee goalie Ethan Ouellette had to stay sharp to handle the Oceanside counter-attack, using his quick glove hand to frustrate Oceanside snipers.  The crowd was enjoying the action as the first period ended in a scoreless tie.

It looked like the Tyees were going to need a rocket-launcher to score and fortunately they found one at the right time.  Todd Campbell and Will McLean combined to get the puck back to Liam Rivett on the point.  McLean took a hit to the back while screening the goalie as Rivett loaded up his cannon and blasted a slapshot on net for the first goal of the game.  Oceanside quickly tied the game with a power-play goal, making the score 1-1 at the flood part-way through the second period.

The Tyees seemed to respond to the clean ice a bit quicker as play resumed with Nolan Fair ripping a wicked wrist shot from the top of the slot for the Tyees’ second goal.  Assists on the play went to Damian Rennie and Rivett.  The Tyees led at the end of the second period, 2-1.  The third period saw more end-to-end action as teams kept trying to find a weakness in each other’s armour.  The Tyees worked on cycling the puck and it paid off when Seth Parker made a perfect pass out of the corner to Fair who one-timed it for his second goal of the game.  Oceanside responded about three minutes later with a bullet fired just in the top corner of the goal to narrow the score to 3-2.

The Tyees cycle again paid off handsomely when Tyler Dickson went into the corner for the puck, gave it to Fair who passed out to Campbell as he was standing alone in front of the goal for the wide-open shot and goal.  The final score was Tyees 4, Oceanside 2.

As mentioned, each of the call-ups played very well and made their presence felt.  The Tyees finish their pre-Christmas schedule with a tournament at Fuller Lake Dec 21-23.  The Tyees next home game will be Jan. 7 at 4 p.m. against Victoria Racquet Club.
