The KLP Construction Peewee A Tyees closed the book on the tiering road last weekend with a pair of games.

On Saturday the Tyees were in Victoria to take on the Juan de Fuca Grizzlies.  Tyee Ethan Ouellette was stellar in goal and even took a shot right on his cage that dented the wires a bit. Damian Rennie earned the team hard hat for his efforts in a 6-0 loss.

The Tyees didn’t have long to wait before getting back on the ice as they hosted the Saanich Braves on Sunday in the last tiering round game for both teams.

Tyee goalie Nic Ordano’s good friends, Post and Crossbar helped to keep it scoreless early.  Seth Parker scored on the Tyee’s first shot on goal, assisted by Rennie. Saanich responded and the first period ended with the teams tied at one.

The Braves took the lead 2-1 early in the second.  The Tyees replied with a goal from Lukas Lund, assisted by Rennie and Todd Campbell to go into the ice clean knotted at two.

The Braves applied pressure and scored to take a 3-2 lead early in the third period.The Tyees kept working hard and were rewarded with a power play goal by Rennie, assisted by Lund and Dawson Frank.

Saanich tried to battle back but the Tyees kept their feet moving and drew a late penalty for a check to the head.  Campbell scored on the power play, assisted by Will McLean and Olivia Knowles. Saanich pulled their goalie for an extra attacker but to no avail as the Tyees won 4-3.  Parker was rewarded with the team hard hat.
