TCHL: Arlington deflates Tire

The Arlington’s Jeremy Robinson and Pat Iannone came one point shy of tying Darryl Sittler’s mark for the most points in one game.

The Arlington’s Jeremy Robinson and Pat Iannone came one point shy of tying Darryl Sittler’s mark for the most points in one game, each counting nine points in the Big A’s epic 11-9 victory over OK Tire on Sunday in Trail Commercial Hockey League action at the Cominco Arena.

Iannone, the league-leading scorer, netted the winner for Arlington with 1:30 remaining in the second period, as the Fruitvale native tallied his third of the night, converting a Kris Davis pass to put the ‘A’ up 10-5.

The win was pay back for an 8-2 loss to the Tire on Thursday. Davis started the scoring at the 19 minute mark, but Kyle Boutin tied it 40 seconds later. Back to back goals from Robinson, put the Big A up 3-1, before Darrin Kissock notched his second of the season for the Tire. Goals from Mike Broyd and a pair from Iannone, and one from Joey Baker put the ‘A’ up 7-2, before the Tire regrouped and mounted a comeback of sorts.

Three straight goals from Chris Kissock, Evan McKay, and Paul Matteucci made it 7-5, but Arlington responded with a pair of goals from Robinson to complete his hat trick and add one more for good measure.

After Iannone made it 10-5, Kissock would strike again for the Tire to make it 10-6 heading to the final frame. Two goals from Shane Drake drew the Tire to within two, but another marker from Baker would ice it with five minutes remaining, despite a final Tire tally from Broyd.

Robinson scored four times while assisting on five, Iannone, who has 37 goals and 75 points on the season, had three goals and six assists, while Davis had a five-point night (1G, 4A) for the Arlington. Drake netted two goals and six assists for the Tire.

In the other match up Sunday, Craig Clare scored the tying goal with 20 seconds remaining in the second period, as Gerick skated to a 5-5 draw with Allstar. After Allstar jumped out to a 4-2 lead, Gerick stormed back in the second to tie the game 4-4 on markers from Albert Benson and Clare. But a goal from Tristan Read restored the lead for Allstar with one minute to play, only to have Clare tie it in the dying seconds of the period.

Re/Max beat Allstar 4-1 on Thursday, on the strength of three point games from Graham Proulx who netted his 19th goal of the season, and Jake Vecchio who counted three assists.

The Arlington win propels the team into sole possession of third place with 20 points, dropping Allstar to fourth place with 19, while the 13-5-3 OK Tire leads the league with 29 points, four up on Re/Max.

On Thursday, Arlington takes on Re/Max at 7:15 p.m. and Gerick faces Allstar at 8:30 p.m. There are no games on Sunday due to a Trail Smoke Eaters game.
