Kootenay Major Midgets put Blazers on Ice

The Major Midget Kootenay Ice swept the Thompson Midget Blazers in a pair of weekend games in Kamloops.

The Major Midget Kootenay Ice swept the Thompson Midget Blazers in a pair of weekend games in Kamloops skating to a 3-1 win Friday and a 7-2 drubbing on Saturday.

Castlegar’s Kadrian Klimchuck had a two point night including netting the winner on a power play with 46 seconds remaining in the second period.

Trail’s Matthew Alderson started the scoring taking a pass from Montrose native Christian Macasso and Kyle Chernenkoff of Cresent Valley and beating Blazer goalie Alex Anagnostopoulos at 1:33 of the first. The Blaze would tie it at 2:40 of the second but Klimchuck would finish a set up from Garrett Patterson and Ellis Junker to take a 2-1 lead, then assist on Justin Podgorekno’s goal to ice it at 12:04 of the third period. The Ice went 1-for-3 on the power play while Thompson was 0-for-3.

In Saturday’s 7-2 victory, defenceman Keaton Roch fired in the winning goal one minute into the second period to give the Ice a 3-1 lead. After two Thompson players were sent off at the end of the first period for checking from behind and boarding, Podgorenko would dish off to Blake Sidoni who sent a pass to Roch who wired it by the Blaze goaltender.

Junker had a four-point game with two goals and two assists, while Rossland’s Karsten Jang would net two goals and an assist, Podgorenko three assists, and Sidoni counted two helpers. Macasso and Even Gorman rounded out the scoring for the Ice.

Special teams were key for the Ice as they went 3-for-7 on the man advantage, and were perfect on the penalty kill.

Jason Mailhiot and Solomon Burk each picked up a win in goal as the Ice evened their season’s record to 2-2. The Ice travel to the coast this weekend to play the 1-3-2 Vancouver N.E. Chiefs on Saturday and Sunday.
