TCHL: All Star stays on top

The first two games of the New Year had little impact on the Trail Commercial Hockey League standings as both games ended in a draw.

The first two games of the New Year had little impact on the Trail Commercial Hockey League standings as both games on Sunday ended in a draw.

The league-leading All Star skated to a 5-5 tie with third-place Arlington while fourth-place OK Tire and fifth-place Gericks ended deadlocked at 4-4.

Scott Davis scored twice for the All Stars and Kelly Sidoni had a four-point night pitching in with a goal and three assists to split the two points with the Big A.

The Arlington jumped out to a 2-1 lead in the first period on goals from Pat Iannone and Jeremy Robinson.  However, Sidoni would tie it six minutes into the second period on a nice dish from Brady Glover, only to have the Arlington tandem strike again at the eight  minute mark of the second period when Robinson set up Iannone to make it 3-2. Scott would tie it for the All Star at the 12 minute mark, but Arlington would again take the lead when Kris Davis finished a slick passing play from Iannone and Robinson a minute later to put the ‘A’ up 4-3.

Scott Morriseau teamed up with Sidoni and Kris Koshey to tie it with minutes to go in the second, and after Robinson put Arlington up 5-4 at 4:40 of the third,  All Star would tie it just 15 seconds later.

The dynamic duo of Iannone and Robinson each had five-point nights for the Arlington and continue to lead the scoring race with Iannone notching his 26th and 27th goals of the season for 65 points, while Robinson sits in second with 14-42-56.

In the other match, OK Tire went up 4-2 thanks to a pair of goals and an assist by Troy Palmer, but Gericks clawed its way back scoring midway through the final period on a goal from Travis Drake to tie it at 4-4. Trevor Fennell, Eric Hill, and Brett Johnson each counted two-point for Gericks, while the Tire’s Justin Adrian had a goal and an assist and Darrin Williams had the other marker for OK Tire.

In Thursday’s game All Star and OK Tire played to a 4-4 tie, while Re/Max eclipsed Gericks 4-1.

The TCHL is back in action tonight with Re/Max taking on All Star at 7:15 p.m. and OK Tire facing off against Arlington at 8:30 p.m. On Sunday, Gericks plays the Arlington at 2:15 p.m. and Re/Max hosts OK Tire at 3:30 p.m. All games are played at the Cominco Arena.
