TCHL: OK Tire gains traction in top spot

OK Tire got back on track last week with a pair of decisive victories over Re/Max and AllStar in TCHL action.

OK Tire got back on track last week with a pair of decisive victories over Re/Max and AllStar in Trail Commercial Hockey League action.

The first-place Tire put some breathing room between themselves and second place Re/Max downing realtors 5-2 on Dec. 29, before skating to a 7-2 drubbing of Allstar on Sunday.  Arlington, meanwhile, moved into a third-place tie with Allstar after eclipsing Gericks 8-6 on Sunday, following a 5-5 tie on Tuesday.

In Sunday’s 7-2 win, the Tire’s Troy Palmer and Evan MacKay did most of the damage with Palmer scoring four goals and adding an assist, while MacKay had a seven-point night with two tallies and five helpers.

Scott Morrisseau and Jason Proulx replied for Allstar, while Justin Adrian netted the other Tire marker, and blue-liner Paul Matteucci counted three assists to give the 12-4-3 OK Tire a four point cushion on Re/Max.

In the Big A win over Gericks Sunday, Pat Iannone had a five-goal and two assist game to bring his league-leading scoring points total to 64.

Iannone netted the winner for Arlington at 12:05 of the second period to put the A up 7-5 on a pretty set up from Jeremy Robinson who had a goal and three assists on the night. Iannone made it 8-5 less than two minutes later to send it to the third period where Gericks’ Craig Clare scored his second of the game with under three minutes to play to bring the Cycle within two, but that’s as close as they would get.

Clare had two goals and three assists for Gericks who trailed 4-2 after one. Mike Turner scored twice, and David Moorehead and Eric Hill rounded out the scoring. Matt Larmour and Darryl Zol had the other goals for the Big A.

TCHL action continues Thursday with the OK Tire taking on Arlington at 7:15 p.m. and Re/Max playing Allstar at 8:30 p.m.
