Midgets bounce back; bantams tie, win

Rep hockey teams finish 2014 with strong performances on the road.

Darryl Coon, Kenton Browne and Thomas Symons scored two goals each as the North Island Eagles midgets outdueled Comox 8-6 Sunday in Comox.

The road win came one day after the midgets fell to the Eagles alumni team in an exhibition game in Port McNeill.

Sunday’s contest started quietly enough, but erupted into a scorefest after the Eagles and goalie Sarah Case carried a 3-1 lead into the third period.

The host Chiefs scored four goals in the first 10 minutes of the period, countered only by Browne’s strike, to jump ahead 5-4. But, beginning with less than six minutes remaining, the Eagles answered with goals by Coon, Alex Scott and Symons just two-and-a-half minutes apart to regain the lead at 7-5.

Browne added his second goal with 43 seconds to play before the Chiefs’ Johnathan Jestico completed his hat trick on a score with 25 seconds left.

The midgets improved to 6-2-1 in Division 3 play and hold second place in the seven-team division heading into the Christmas break.

 

 

 

Bantams gain ground

The Eagles bantams picked up three points on a weekend road swing to Victoria last weekend, earning a 5-5 draw with Victoria Racquet Club Saturday before topping Victoria 4-3 on Sunday.

The bantams improved to 3-4-2 in league play and sit just a point out of third place.
