Eagles rep midgets tie, lose

North Island Eagles escape with a 3-3 tie against Comox Sunday in Vancouver Island Hockey League Tier 3 play Sunday in Comox.

Goals by defensemen David Shaw, Malcolm Browne and Coltton Slater allowed the North Island Eagles to escape with a 3-3 tie against Comox Sunday in Vancouver Island Hockey League Tier 3 play Sunday in Comox.

The draw gave the midgets a point on a weekend in which they were unable to muster much offence on the road. The Eagles dropped a 2-0 decision Saturday to the Victoria Ice Hawks, with Victoria scoring in the late stages of the opening period and the 1-0 score holding until only three minutes remained in regulation.

The loss came despite the Eagles controlling play for much of the game, and credit was given to Victoria goalie Tyrus Sleightume, who kept the visitors at bay.

On Sunday, Shaw scored off a Tyren Dustin assist and Browne tallied an unassisted goal to give the midgets a 2-0 lead over the Chiefs in Comox.

But the hosts battled back, scoring their first goal late in the second period and adding another midway through the third to forge a 2-2 tie.

Slater’s goal at 13:16 of the third period pushed the Eagles back in front, 3-2, but the Chiefs needed only 29 seconds to tie the score on Austin Pigeon’s goal with 6:15 left to play.

The midgets return home this weekend, with a 4:15 p.m. game Saturday in Port McNeill against Victoria and a rematch Sunday at 11 a.m. back in Chilton Regional Arena.
