Trail Commercial hockey: Allstars on the rise

Re/Max continued its dominance of OK Tire, and the AllStars crept up the standings with a win over Firebird.

In Trail Commercial Hockey League action last week Re/Max continued its dominance of OK Tire, and the AllStars crept up the standings with a win over Firebird.

Re/Max improved its record to 12-6-1 with a 4-2 victory over OK Tire Thursday.

Kieran Hill netted what proved to be the winning goal, converting a nice passing play from Dallas Stanton and Rick Golding at the 10 minute mark of the second period to give the realtors a 3-1 lead.

Re/Max jumped out to a 2-0 lead on goals by Gabe Gaudet and Graham Proulx just 90 seconds apart.

It was Proulx’s 28th of the young season and he looks to be well on his way to a third TCHL scoring title.

OK Tire cut the lead to one when the deceptively nimble Kyle Boutin netted his first of the season on a Tire powerplay with 30 seconds remaining in the first period.

After Hill made it 3-1, the Tire’s Shane Drake converted a pass from defenceman Cam Ferguson to again make it a one-goal game.

But Hill would net his second of the night to ice it just before the end of the second.

Re/Max has won back-to-back games against the Tire and are currently five points ahead in league standings, but OK Tire, who sit in second place, has two games in hand.

The AllStars meanwhile held off a late surge from Firebird to preserve a 6-4 win and lift them to within a game of the Tire.

Mark Hutchinson fired home the winner on the powerplay a minute into the second period to give the Allstars a commanding 5-1 lead.

The Allstars built up a 4-0 lead before Firebird’s Travis Drake netted their first goal in the waning seconds of the opening frame. The Stars then went up 6-1 before late goals by Nathan Stanton, Gord Aiken, and Drake made it respectable.

TCHL action continues Thursday night when Arlington takes on Firebird at 7:15 p.m. and the Allstars face off against OK Tire at 8:30 p.m. at the Cominco Arena.

Presently in Canada, it is illegal to be in possession of a personal stun gun. Use of this tool is only licensed to federal and provincial police officers. The personal use of stun guns by unlicensed civilians is considered to be illegal and considered under the Canadian Criminal Code to be the equivalent of a weapon.
