Major Midget: Ice takes on Canadians

The Major Midget Kootenay Ice are back in action this weekend, after finishing off 2015 with a big win

The Major Midget Kootenay Ice are back in action this weekend, after finishing off 2015 with a big win over the Thompson Blazers of Kamloops Dec. 21.

Trail’s Bradley Ross scored two goals to lift the Ice to a 2-0 win over the Blazers after skating to a 3-3 tie the day before. Curt Doyle of Nelson got the shutout to draw the team to within two points of the Blazers in the BC Major Midget Hockey League standings.

“Everyone played well all weekend and executed our systems really well consistently,” Ice coach Brian Jones told the Nelson Daily. “Curt Doyle with the shutout and Brad Ross, offensively, stood out for us.”

Ross also scored in the first game to give the Ice a 3-1 lead after Trail’s Brendan Makay and Hunter Floris put the Ice up 2-1. However, the Blazers scored two before the middle frame was done to tie it and pick up a point.

This weekend in Nelson, the Ice face a Greater Vancouver Canadians team that has also struggled, losing its past four games in a row, while holding down eighth place in the BCMMHL.

Saturday’s game goes at 6 p.m. at the Nelson and District Community Complex, with the puck drop for Sunday’s game scheduled for 8 a.m.
