The Kootenay Major Midget Ice are off to Burnaby for a tough twin-bill against the Vancouver Northwest Giants this weekend.

The Giants sit in second place in the 11-team B.C. Major Midget League with a record of 10-3-1, while an improving Ice squad is in 10th with a 3-9-2 record, but has gone an impressive 2-1-1 in their last four games.

Last week in Nelson the Ice split a pair of games with the Fraser Valley Phantoms, taking the first match 7-3 Saturday before losing a close 4-3 decision on Sunday.

In Sunday’s match the Ice found themselves down 4-2 in the third period, when Ross Armour scored with 6:07 to play to cut the lead to one, but the Ice could not find the equalizer. Justin Podgorenko and Coy Prevost had the other West Kootenay goals.

In the Ice’s victory Saturday, Sam Weber scored what proved to be the winner, finishing a pass from Prevost to make the score 4-1 just 15 seconds into the second period. It was the third straight assist for Prevost on the night, while Weber would also pick up a helper on Trail native Jacob Yuris’ goal at 15:28 of the third. Trevor Van Steinburg scored twice for the ice while Montrose’s Spencer McLean, Fruitvale’s Ryan Neil, and Nelson’s Podgorenko each added a goal and an assist.
