The Major Midget Kootenay Ice split a pair of games with the Fraser Valley Thunderbirds in Nelson on the weekend.

The Major Midget Kootenay Ice split a pair of games with the Fraser Valley Thunderbirds in Nelson on the weekend dropping their first game 5-2  Saturday before rebounding with a 4-2 win on Sunday.

The Ice’s Tanner Costa scored the winner on Sunday, on an unassisted effort at 12:02 remaining in the third period to give Kootenay a 3-1 lead.

After a scoreless first period, Justin Podgorenko converted an Ellis Junker pass to put the Ice up 1-0, just 38 seconds into the middle frame. Korbyn Chabot would make it 2-0 at 13:19, with assists going to Kadrian Klimchuk and affiliate player Aiden Browell of Fruitvale.

The T-birds would cut the lead to one on a goal from Nate Castonguay at 13:30 but Costa would restore the two-goal cushion 88 seconds later.

Fraser Valley would again draw within one on a power-play goal, after Klimchuk was called for hooking with 2:56 remaining in regulation. But Trail’s Evan Gorman would salt it away with an empty netter a minute later.

On Saturday, Trail native Blake Sidoni scored two first-period goals to give the Ice a 2-1 lead but the Thunderbirds would score four unanswered to secure the 5-2 win.

The Kootenay Midget Ice improved their record to 3-13-2 good for ninth spot in the 11-team BC Major Midget League.

The Ice next travel to the coast to take on the Burnaby Winter Club on Saturday and Sunday.
