TCHL: Allstar deflates Tire

Allstar took the air out of OK Tire in Trail Commercial Hockey League action on Saturday.

Allstar took the air out of OK Tire in Trail Commercial Hockey League action on Saturday with an 8-3 thumping, while Arlington kept Gericks from playing catch up with a 3-2 victory.

Allstar moved within two points of the front-running Tire thanks to a winning goal from former Brooks Bandit Colton Semenok and a four-point night from Castlegar native Scott Morrisseau. Semenok scored at the 20:05 mark of the second period, converting a Morrisseau pass to give Allstar a 4-2 lead, and one they wouldn’t relinquish.

OK Tire’s Evan Mackay opened the scoring five minutes into the first period, but a pair of goals from Walker Sidoni put Allstar up 2-1 at 8:06. Chris Kissock notched his third of the season to draw the Tire even at the seven minute mark, but Allstar would erupt for five unanswered goals from Morriseau, two from Semenok, and singles from Derek Steep, and Jarret Conway to give the Tire a 7-2 lead. Troy Palmer replied for the Tire with a minute to play in the middle frame, while Tristan Read rounded out the scoring for Allstar, and Cody Deadmarsh earned the win in net.

With a win, Gericks would have moved into a tie with the Big A on Sunday, but three first-period goals and a solid performance from A’s netminder Eric Volpatti gave Arlington a four-point cushion over the last place Cycle. TCHL leading scorer, Pat Iannone, scored twice and assisted on Al McMartin’s goal to propel the Arlington into a 3-0 lead. Gericks made it 3-1 at the 6:00 mark of the second period on a goal from Mike Boisvert, and Curtis Wabelin cut the lead to one with 1:53 to play in the third, but Gericks couldn’t find the equalizer. Iannone now leads all TCHL scorers with 19 goals and 42 points in 12 games.

On Thursday, the same two teams played to a 5-5 tie, with Craig Claire scoring the tying goal and his second of the night with just 4:06 remaining in regulation. In the other match, the 7-3-2 OK Tire beat Re/Max 4-1 with Peter Sheets, Evan MacKay, Joel Graf, and Justin Adrian tallying for the Tire, while Derrick Simister replied for Re/Max.

TCHL action resumes tonight at the Cominco Arena with Allstar facing Re/Max at 7:15 p.m. and OK Tire playing Gericks at 8:30 p.m. On Sunday, Arlington vs Re/Max at 2:15 and Gericks faces Allstar at 3:30 p.m.
