Time runs out on peewees

The KLP Construction Peewee A Tyees proved they are one of the teams to beat while in Port Alberni for the Thanksgiving weekend Tier 2 hockey tournament.

The KLP Construction Peewee A Tyees proved they are one of the teams to beat while in Port Alberni for the Thanksgiving weekend Tier 2 hockey tournament. The first game of the round-robin had the Tyees face-off against Burnaby Winter Club. Like a heavyweight boxing match, both teams were going toe-to-toe through to the final buzzer with the Tyees winning by a score of 3-2. Nolan Fair received the Player of the game accolades.

The Tyees second game was against our close rivals, Comox Valley, with the Tyees prevailing 2-1.  Player of the game honours went to goalie Ethan Ouellette.

The third game had the Tyees playing Powell River. The team worked well together and took care of the little details that matter most. By playing as a team, the Tyees skated to a 3-1 win to finish the round-robin with a perfect record and earned a berth in the semi-final game against Port Alberni.  For his outstanding goaltending, Nick Ordano received player of the game. If the first game against Burnaby was a heavyweight boxing match, then the semi-final was its MMA cousin. The game had more than its share of action, some of which drew the attention of the referees. Down 3-2 in the final minutes of the third period the Tyees scored a power play goal to even the score. With less than a minute to go and the goalie out of the net for an extra attacker Tyee defenceman Doug Campbell scored the winning goal with only seconds left on the clock. The Tyees’ 4-3 victory punched their ticket to the tournament championship game.  Campbell earned player of the game.

Semiahmoo joined the Tyees in the final. After a scoreless first period, Semiahmoo came out flying in the second and put one in the back of the net and quickly thereafter scored their second goal taking a 2-0 lead into the dressing room at the ice clean midway. After the flood, Semiahmoo scored twice more to go up 4-0. With almost 13 minutes left in the game, Tyees Captain Dawson Frank scored to erase the Semiahmoo shutout.  His teammates drew on that energy and the Tyees were rewarded with a power play.  Tyee Tyler Dickson scored shortly after to get back into the game. Down 4-2 with 5:33 left to play, Tyee Lukas Lund wired one home to make it 4-3 with just over a minute remaining.  With the goaltender pulled for the extra attacker, the Tyees pressed hard, and rang one off the crossbar. Semiahmoo cleared the puck all the way down the ice into the empty net.  Final score 5-3 for Semiahmoo. Captain Dawson Frank was player of the game.
