Tyees wrap pre-season

The No. 1 Auto Body Bantam A Tyees completed their tiering round schedule with an impressive 5-1 victory over the Cowichan Valley Capitals Sunday afternoon at Rod Brind’Amour Arena.

The No. 1 Auto Body Bantam A Tyees completed their tiering round schedule with an impressive 5-1 victory over the Cowichan Valley Capitals Sunday afternoon at Rod Brind’Amour Arena.

Travis Goodwin and Grady McInnes gave Campbell River an early 2-0 advantage but Cowichan Valley cut the lead in half, scoring late in the opening period. After key saves by netminder Ryan Smith, McInnes restored the two goal cushion with his second of the game to make it 3-1 after 40 minutes.

The Tyees dominated the final frame and rounded out the scoring with markers by Cole Rennie and Sage Lim.

The Tyees weren’t so fortunate on Saturday, losing 4-1 to the Clippers in Nanaimo. Goodwin scored the lone goal for Campbell River.

Despite the loss head coach Peter Martin says he is satisfied with the direction his team is headed.

“We went through the tiering round with three wins and two losses,” said Martin. “Outside of the game against Victoria Racquet Club, which was our first of the tiering round, I think we’ve been pretty solid and made good progress. The Nanaimo game was a nice bench mark for us. Even though we lost I thought we played quite well.”

The regular season schedule will be released by the end of the month and Martin expects his team to be seeded in Division 1.
