Midgets go 1-2 on the road

The Eagles went unbeaten in preseason this year and were selected to play in VIAHA’s Tier 2 division.

The North Island Midget Eagles went 1-2 on the road, defeating the Juan De Fuca Grizzlies and falling to the Oceanside Generals and the Campbell River Tyees.

The Eagles went unbeaten in preseason tiering this year and qualified to play in the Vancouver Island Amateur Hockey Association’s Tier 2 division, which is a big accomplishment in itself.

The Midgets faced off against the Tyees on Saturday, Oct. 28 in Campbell River where they scored two goals courtesy of Payton Laming and Josh Borg, but it wasn’t enough as the Tyees scored four goals over all three periods to take home the win.

“We lost the game 4–2, but it was a very fast competitive game,” said coach Marty Gage.

“We played disciplined; Campbell River took more penalties than us.”

The Eagles rebounded in their next game against the Grizzlies on Saturday, Nov. 4 with a big 6-1 win, but then were defeated by the Generals the day after by a score of 5-2.

The Eagles have a date with the Comox Valley Chiefs on Nov. 18 before finally playing their first home game of the season against the Tyees on Sunday, Nov. 26 at the Don Cruickshank Memorial Arena in Port Hardy at 11:30 a.m.

Come on out and cheer on the Eagles!
