Marine Harvest U18 Riptide1 Boys undefeated so far this season

The Marine Harvest U18 Riptide played a game in Nanaimo against the U18 Storm in full fog on Friday night.

The Riptide ended up winning, but no one could really tell who had scored until the boys came back to the centre area due to the foggy weather.

The Riptide were up 3-0 after the first half, and then closed out the game 4-1. Port Hardy’s Seth Hanuse scored one of the goals.

The Riptide played again on Sunday in Campbell River vs. Lakehill/Gorge (top team in the division), and it was very close, but the Riptide ended up winning 1-0.

The two decisive wins should push the U18 Riptide team 1 into the top of the league’s point standings, and they still have not suffered any losses yet.

The Riptide still have four league games to be played in the new year, keep checking out the North Island Gazette for more updates.
