The North Island Eagles midget rep hockey team snared third place in the Comox New Year’s tournament.

The North Island Eagles midget rep hockey team rolled to a 5-2 win over Comox Valley last weekend to snare third place in the Comox New Year’s tournament.

The Eagles split their pool round games, topping Comox and Peninsula but falling to Sooke and Cowichan Valley to wind up in the third-place game.

The midgets return to Vancouver Island Hockey League Division 3 play with a home game this Saturday, hosting Saanich at 4 p.m. at Doug Bondue Arena in Port Alice.
