Peewees net first win

Peewees take first win of the season Sunday, beating the Oceanside Generals.

On Saturday, the North Island Eagles peewee rep hockey team came within one goal of its first win of the season.

The following day, they finally cracked that barrier.

Clayton Bono and Carson Strang each scored hat tricks and David Charlie added two goals and three assists Sunday as the young peewee squad rolled to a 10-6 exhibition win over the Oceanside Generals in Parksville.

Elliot Furney and Kaisha Laird added goals and Michael McLaughlin got the victory in goal for the Eagles, a squad made up mostly of first-year players.

One day earlier, the peewees rallied from a two-goal deficit to draw even with Campbell River before the host Tyees snared a narrow, 7-6 win on a goal with 5:42 remaining.

Charlie scored a hat trick in Saturday’s loss and Devin White added three assists.

Strang, Tanner Roberts and Mandy Foldy each scored a goal and Strang and Benton Browne added assists in the game.

In Sunday’s win, White had another playmaker with three assists. Tianna Walkus added two helpers, and Roberts, Bono, Taylor Ranger and Laird each had one.

The games represented the second and third straight strong showings for the Eagles, who played well in a home loss to Nanaimo the previous weekend.

“Our kids are working very hard and it is great to see them getting the results,” said Conrad Browne, head coach. “We are starting to reach some of our goals and the success of that process is very exciting. It has been a pleasure to watch some of our lines really starting to play together well.”
