Bantams split preseason tiering games

The Bantam Eagles split two games against Alberni Valley and Campbell River.

The North Island Bantam Eagles travelled down to Port Alberni Oct. 15 for a preseason tiering game and came back home with a dominant victory over the Alberni Valley Bulldogs.

In the 1st period, the Eagles’ Tynan Klein-Beekman opened the scoring with a goal at 7:37, which was the only goal scored during the first 20 minutes.

In the 2nd period, the Eagles’ Ryan Patterson netted a goal at 15:45 to take a 2-0 lead. The Bulldogs scored at 14:16 to make it 2-1, but the Eagles poured on the offence from there, with the captain Liem Wadhams and Joey Grant both scoring to make it 4-2 going into the 3rd period.

The Eagles’ Klein-Beekman then added two more goals in the 3rd to complete the hat trick, effectively ending the game 6-3.

“It was a great game,” said coach Marty Gage. “We played disciplined hockey and we all worked together to pick up the win.”

The Eagles had another game on Saturday, Oct. 22 at the Doug Bondue Arena in Port Alice against the Campbell River Tyees which started out well for them as they had a solid 3-2 lead going into the third period, but then unfortunately the Eagles “got a bunch of penalties and played undisciplined for the rest of the game, which cost us,” said Gage.

The final score was 8-3 for the Tyees.
