Bantams place second in tourney

South Delta tops Eagles in final of Victoria rep tourney

South Delta proved to be the ultimate nemesis for the North Island Eagles bantam rep hockey team at last weekend’s Victoria Minor Hockey tournament, netting two wins over the Eagles including a 5-1 victory in the championship game.

The Eagles opened with a 5-5 tie against Peninsula, then romped to a 7-1 win over Vernon. The bantams then faced South Delta in the final round of pool play and dropped a narrow 3-2 decision before the two teams met again in the final.

Matthew Cahill finished with four goals and an assist in the tourney and Tyler Sexton and Thomas Symons had three goals each. Darryl Coon, Riley Heemels, Alex Scott and George Walkus also scored for the club.

Blueliners Coon and Alexander Stavrakov finished with three assists each.

Riley Mathieson and Shae Simpson shared goaltending duties for the bantams, who resume Vancouver Island Hockey League Division 2 play with a game at Powell River Saturday.
