Bantam eagles pick up playoff win

The North Island Bantam Eagles picked up a big 8-1 playoff win against the Nanaimo Clippers

The North Island Bantam Eagles picked up a big 8-1 playoff win against the Nanaimo Clippers on Saturday,

Jan. 30, at the Frank Crane Arena in Nanaimo. “We had success getting to the net, but we will not win against

stronger teams the way we played,” Coach Greg Fox mentioned after the game. The Eagle’s Carson Strang

netted the first goal of the game, Matthew Saunders scored at 7:17, Clayton Bono scored right after at 6:59,

and Rhys Dutcyvich scored at 4:03 to end the 1st period 4-0.The Eagles poured on the offence and kept

scoring goals in the 2nd period. Dutcyvich got his second and third goal of the game at 16:40 and 11:56, and

the Eagles’ captain Evan Fox scored at 9:48 to go up 7-0.The 3rd period was a little quieter. Nanaimo finally got

on the scoreboard at 11:20, and then Bono netted his second of the game with 2:01 left to seal the blowout win

8-1. Even with the win, Fox cautiously noted that the team “played a below average game. There were

moments where we played like a team and this led to a few goals. We will need to play a less selfish style of

hockey if we are to win our way to provincials.”
