McCarrick, Dutcyvich compete in BC Cup

Midgets Robert Cahill and Thor Rosback play next week in Male U17 tourney

Curtis McCarrick of Port Hardy, 15, scored a pair of goals last week for Team Wild as the squad placed fifth in BC Hockey’s Male U16 BC Cup hockey tournament in Kamloops.

The tournament, which featured 10 teams, was held jamboree style, mixing and matching players from various parts of B.C. on each team. McCarrick was chosen in Vancouver Island Zone tryouts earlier this year.

He skated last season with the North Island Eagles bantam team, which won the Vancouver Island Tier 3 title.

Samantha Dutcyvich of Port McNeill was also in action, helping Team Eagles to a third-place finish in the Female U18 BC Cup Challenge at the Sunwave Centre in Salmon Arm.

Team Eagles notched a 3-1 win over Team Falcons in Saturday’s bronze-medal final.

Dutcyvich is a defenseman who competed last season for the North Island Extreme female midget A program. The Extreme brought home the Vancouver Island banner and went on to place third in the provincial championships.

Approximately 46 players from the six-team tournament will be selected to take part in the Female U18 Provincial Camp, to be held May 19-23 in Salmon Arm.

Two more North Island players will be in action next week when the BC Cup Challenge wraps up. Forward Robert Cahill of Port Hardy and defenseman Thor Rosback of Port McNeill were both selected to play in the Male U17 challenge in Salmon Arm, May 13-15.

Teammates last season for the North Island Eagles rep midget program, Cahill and Rosback will be split up for the six-team BC Cup. Cahill will skate for Team Canucks, while Rosback suits up for Team Stars. The two teams are in separate pools, so the players will not face off head-to-head unless they meet in the playoffs.

 

Note: The original version of this story, published here and in print editions of the Gazette, incorrectly reported McCarrick played for the winning Male U16 team, Team Stars. The Gazette regrets this error.
