TCHL: Re/Max climbs standings

Re/Max moved into a tie with Allstar for second place in the Trail Commercial Hockey League on Sunday.

Re/Max moved into a tie with Allstar for second place in the Trail Commercial Hockey League on Sunday with a 4-1 victory over Arlington, while the Allstar fell to Gericks 5-2.

Paul Barclay broke a 1-1 tie with 8:35 remaining in the second period to tally the winning goal on a nice pass from Dyne Parker to draw the realtors even with Allstar in the TCHL standings with 15 points each. The league-leading OK Tire, 8-3-2, was idle on Sunday, but has a three-point cushion on the second place teams.

The Arlington got on the board first when Mike Broyd netted his seventh on the season on a pretty passing play from Joey Baker and Jeremy Robinson. But Jason Vecchio converted a Luke Russell pass to tie it with a minute to play in the opening frame.

After taking the lead, Barclay netted his team-leading eighth goal and 19th point to make it 3-1 on another Parker setup with 2:08 to play in the third. Derek Simister iced it with 37 seconds left on the clock, and Chris McIsaac was stellar in net, picking up the win for Re/Max.

In Sunday’s other match Gericks Cycle and Sport got production from five different scorers to down Allstar 5-2.

The sportsmen jumped out to a 3-0 first period lead on goals from Nathan Stanton, Al Berglund, and Craig Clare and made it 5-0 with tallies from Ross McDonell and Eric Hill, before Allstar replied with two late goals from Tristan Read and Derek Steep.

With just their third win, Gericks moved to within two points of first place Arlington, but it is a positive result for the team which hung in for a close 3-2 loss to first-place OK Tire on Thursday. In last weeks other game Re/Max and Allstar played to a 4-4 tie on the strength of a hat trick from Allstar’s Andrew Jenner.

Tonight the Arlington faces OK Tire at 7:15 p.m., while Re/Max takes on Allstar at 8:30 p.m. at the Cominco Arena. On Sunday OK Tire plays Gericks at 2:15 p.m. and Re/Max and Arlington go at 3:30 p.m.
