Tyees hockey round up

Campbell River's Atom and Peewee Tyee teams are starting the season off on the right foot

Atom Tyees

The Nyrstar Atom B Tyees had a great start to their league season last Sunday.

The Tyees played host to the Nanaimo B2 Clippers to kick off their 2014/15 season.

The Tyees’ Thomas Nelson opened the scoring with the first, the second and the third goals of the game, to notch a natural hattrick.

Tyee Kobe Koizumi followed up Nelson’s heroics with two goals, and Liam MacKinnon and Jaxson Irving each scored once in the third.

The Tyee goalies, Jasper van de Vlasakker and Macklin Johnson shared the game and stymied the Nanaimo Clippers. The Tyees came out on the winning end of a 7-1 final score.

The Nyrstar Atom B Tyees are back in action this weekend as they take on the Cowichan B team Sunday at 1:15 p.m. on rink 2 at Strathcona Gardens.


Peewee Tyees

The Blue Thunder Peewee B team has been busy these last few weeks. They’ve been working on team building with dry land training, puck shooting classes and a team potluck lunch.

All of this seems to have paid off as the team has started the season undefeated.

Last weekend the peewees were on the road to take on the Victoria Ice Hawks. The Tyees went on to a 6-3 win in a hard fought seesaw battle. Goals were scored by: Tyler Wingert who opened the scoring early in the first period, Markus Cross (2), Lane Rogers , and Matthew Block.

The next day, the Tyees defeated the Saanich  Braves 3-1. Goals were scored by: Tatum Feeney, Block and Wyatt Huffman. The Peewee B’s play this weekend at home against Nanaimo on Saturday.
