Peewees take out Chiefs at Doug Bondue Arena

“We got two points in our first league game and that is a positive — it’s back to work on Thursday.”

The North Island Peewee Eagles ran over the Comox Valley Chiefs at the Doug Bondue Arena in Port Alice on Saturday, racking up nine goals over three periods of play.

Neither team was able to get on the scoreboard in the first period, but the Eagles took over after the break with five goals coming from Tye Morash, Jack Barrett, Kai Verbrugge, Landon Turgeon, and Zachary Spafford, giving them a 5-2 lead before the end of the second period.

The Eagles continued to dominate offensively in the third, with four more goals courtesy of Morash, Spafford, Lucca Stewart, and Verbrugge, earning a dominate 9-4 win at home.

Eagles’ coach Glenn Moore said afterwards that it “wasn’t our best effort of the season, and we got away from our system early in the game.”

Moore added he feels the Eagles “can be a very good hockey team when all the horses are pulling the cart in the same direction, but let’s not look past that fact, we got two points in our first league game and that is a positive — it’s back to work on Thursday.”
