BC Hockey – Ice topple ‘Tips

The Major Midget Kootenay Ice won its first game of the season in the with a 4-3 victory over the North Island Silvertips last Sunday.

The Major Midget Kootenay Ice won its first game of the season in the B.C. Major Midget League with a 4-3 victory over the North Island Silvertips in Nanaimo on Sunday.

The Ice had dropped a 4-2 decision to the Silvertips on Saturday, and looked to be headed in the same direction in their game Sunday. Down 3-2 heading into the third period, the Ice’s Coy Prevost tied the game with 7:18 remaining on a nice set up from Sam Weber of Nelson, who had two assists in the game.

Then, with 1:39 remaining in regulation, Fruitvale’s Ryan Neil netted the winner off assists from Kane Roberts and Austin Tambellini.

The Silvertips got on the board first on a goal from Carter Turnbull midway through the opening frame, but the Ice’s Ross Armour would tie it before the end of the period. The Tips went up 3-1 in the second, but Kadrian Klimchuk would draw the Kootenay team to within one with just 17 seconds remaining, setting up the third-period comeback.

The Ice are now 1-4-1 and will play the fourth place Okanagan Rockets in Kelowna this weekend.
