Trail Commercial Hockey League: Allstar back on track

Allstar clawed its way into a share of first place in the Trail Commercial Hockey League with a pair of wins last week.

Allstar clawed its way into a share of first place in the Trail Commercial Hockey League (TCHL) with a pair of wins last week.

Allstar eked out a 6-5 win over Re/Max on Thursday and a 5-3 victory over Gericks Sunday afternoon to improve its record to 3-2-1 and seize a share of first place in the TCHL with the 3-1-1 OK Tire.

In Sunday’s match, Derek Steep scored what proved to be the winner, finishing of a Tristan Read and Scott Morriseau set up to give Allstar a 4-0 lead with nine minutes left in the second period.

The loss was Gericks second of the week after falling to the Tire 4-2 on Thursday to drop into a share of second spot with Re/Max.

Allstar jumped out to a 3-0 first period lead on goals from Conway, Morrisseau, and Read.  After Steep made it four-zip, Craig Clare scored his seventh of the season to get Gericks on the board.

But Morrisseau restored the four-goal cushion, netting his 10th point of the season to give Allstar a 5-1 lead, before Eric Hill and Mike Boisvert tallied late markers for Gericks to make it a 5-3 match.

Morrisseau and Conway had three-point games in the winning cause, while Cody Deadmarch earned the ‘W’ in net for Allstar.

In Sunday’s other match, Re/Max forward and three time TCHL scoring champion Graham Proulx broke out of his scoring slump with a vengeance, scoring five times in a 9-5 victory over Arlington. Proulx scored three straight goals to open the first period, before Jeremy Robinson replied for the Big A at the 11 minute mark. Mike Broyd’s fifth goal of the season made it 3-2 heading to a wild second period that saw seven goals scored. Pat Iannone tied it at 3-3 at 17:57, but Re/Max would retake the lead on a Devyn Hill goal. Kris Davis drew the A even again, but goals from Proulx, Riley Deadmarsh, and Jason Vecchio gave the realtors a 7-5 lead heading to the third. Late markers from Proulx and Luke Russell sealed the deal for the 2-3-1 Re/Max.

On Thursday, the Tire skated to a 4-2 victory over Gericks in its only game of the week. Goals from Kelly Mackay and Kyle Butin put the Tire up 2-0 in the opening frame, and each team would exchange goals in the second and third, with Shane Drake and Derek Chartres, netting his first of the season, rounding out the Tire scoring, while Hill and Gord Aiken replied for Gericks.

In Thursday’s other match, Allstar’s Walker Sidoni scored with 30 seconds remaining in the second period to break a 5-5 tie for the win over Re/Max. Cory Neal scored twice, while Morrisseau had a goal and two assists in the winning cause with Andrew Jenner and Jason Proulx adding singles. Thomas Abenante scored four goals for Re/Max with Kieran Hill rounding out the scoring.

This week’s games will see OK Tire take on Arlington at 7:15 p.m. and Re/Max face Allstar at 8:15 p.m. at the Cominco Arena. There are no games Sunday due to a Trail Smoke Eaters match versus the Penticton Vees at 3 p.m.
