The Mainstream Biological Consulting Pee Wee B Tyees, decimated by injury and the Flu, limped into exhibition action this weekend for a pair of games against higher tiered opponents in advance of their step-up to tier 3 playoffs and provincials.

Saturday’s game in Fuller Lake against Cowichan Valley featured only 11 of Campbell River’s regular 16 skaters, and only four defensemen.

The game was a story of two halves, with Cowichan starting quickly and physically, building up a three goal lead at the mid-way ice-clean. True to form, though, the Tyees became stronger as the game progressed, in spite of or because of the physical play. Mitchell Roger’s slap shot game-winner with three minutes left in the game gave the Tyees a 4-3 victory.

Sunday’s game against Saanich in Victoria featured only 9 regular Tyees, with Alex Johnson and Reilly Doney answering the call. Will McLean and Johnson both had assists, and Rogers finished with 3 points in an 8-4 loss.

The Tyees travel to Port Alice Saturday to face off against Tri-Port in their first play-off game.
