Midget Ice swept by Canadians

The Major Midget Kootenay Ice lost a pair of games to the Vancouver NW Canadians in BC Hockey action last weekend.

The Major Midget Kootenay Ice fell behind early and couldn’t catch up as they lost a pair of matches this weekend to the Greater Vancouver Canadians at the Richmond Oval.

In the first game Saturday, the Canadians jumped out to a 3-0 lead on two goals from Scott Atkinson and one from Ben Landon, before the Ice’s Owen Titus replied to make it 3-1. Vancouver’s Henry Rybinski notched another to make it 4-1 with 41 seconds left in the opening frame.

Kootenay fought back in the second and third with the Ice’s leading scorer Ethan Jang netting his fourth goal of the season on a setup from Reid Wilson at 8:52 of the middle stanza to draw Kootenay within two. Less than four minutes into the third period, Erik Delaire took a pass from Terrell Clairricoates and beat the Vancouver goalie to make it 4-3, but that was as close as Kootenay would get, as the Canadians netted another with 2:39 to play for the 5-3 final.

In Sunday’s game, the slippery slope continued for the Ice as the Canadians again took a 3-0 first period lead on goals from Emerson Kostner, Atkinson, and Michael Araki-Young. Two goals from Atkinson and Chris Douglas to start the second put the Ice in a 5-0 hole before Tommy McConnachie netted his second of the season to put the Ice on the board. Vancouver added one more in the third period as the ice dropped their fourth game of the season in the 6-1 final.

The Kootenay Ice return home this weekend and will host the Vancouver NW Giants at 4 p.m. at the Cominco Arena on Saturday and at 9:45 a.m. on Sunday.
