The Major Midget Kootenay Ice ended their season on a winning note, as they skated to a 5-4 win over the Thompson Blazers Sunday at the Cominco Arena.
After dropping a 5-3 decision in the first of a two-game series Saturday, the Ice countered with a great effort in their final match of the season.
Greyson Reitmeier scored the winning goal with just under four minutes to play in the third period, finishing a nice passing play from Mitch Foyle and Brandon Sookro.
The Ice jumped out to a quick start when Foyle scored his 10th of the season, on a power play in the first minute to go up 1-0.
Two minutes later the Blazers tied it and would go up 2-1 midway through the period before the Ice responded with 13 seconds left in the opening frame. Darren Medeiros scored his first of two in the game on assists from Foyle and Justin Post.
However, Thompson would regain the lead at the 17:57 mark and go up by two just minutes later.
Medeiros replied at 8:46 of the second period, with assists coming from Post and Jeremy McGregor.
Post, a Nelson native, would bang in his ninth of the season to tie the game less than a minute later before Reitmeier notched the 5-4 winner in the third.
Post and Foyle of Fruitvale collected three points in the game, each with a goal and two assists, while McGregor, Sookro and Mederios finished with two-point games.
