Eagles peewees split on road

The North Island Eagles peewee hockey team scored 24 goals last weekend yet managed just a split of its two-game trip down-Island.

The North Island Eagles peewee hockey team scored 24 goals last weekend yet managed just a split of its two-game trip down-Island.

“We need to improve our defence,” head coach Marty Gage noted dryly.

The peewees wrapped up the Vancouver Island Hockey League division 3 trip Sunday with a 17-10 romp over Cowichan Valley in what Gage noted as a “football score”.

One day earlier, the Eagles fell four goals behind Peninsula and their late rally was not enough to prevent an 8-7 loss.

In Sunday’s win, Rhys Dutcyvich led the scoring onslaught with five goals and four assists, and Mathew Saunders had five goals and one assist. Luke Gage added a hat trick and five assists, Braden Walkus scored twice and Payton Laming and Connor Van Will added goals.

Kayden Jones picked up the win in goal.

On Saturday, Saunders and Dutcyvich each notched hat tricks and Luke Gage added a goal in the loss to Peninsula. Tynan Klein-Beekman contributed an assist.

One week earlier, the peewees placed third in the Remembrance Day tournament at Kerry Park.

Their semifinal against Juan de Fuca ended 8-8 after regulation, and the Grizzlies eventually prevailed in a sudden-death shootout to drop the Eagles into the third-place contest.

That final again resulted in a tie score of 5-5 with host Kerry Park, but this time the Eagles were victorious in the Shootout.
