Tri-Port Peewee Wild win first league games of the season over Nanaimo Clippers in Port Hardy

The Wild won back to back games, 10-1 and 8-0 over the visiting Nanaimo Clippers.

The Tri-Port Peewee Wild showed some serious growth as a team over the Christmas break, winning bronze medals at a tournament down island in Cowichan Valley against some tough competition.

Head coach Ryan Humphrey was very pleased with how the team played, noting that while five of their players were unable to play in the tournament, they were thankful to have picked up two players from the Campbell River Hurricanes, Hyatt and Bettenson.

“A huge thank you to those two girls and their families for making the trip down with us,” said Humphrey, adding, “I am beyond proud of these girls. They all fought so hard, every shift was full on. And Kiara Miller did an amazing job in net.”

The Wild were back in action at home Jan. 12-13 with a two-game series against the Nanaimo Clippers, where they picked up their first win of the season 10-1 at the Don Cruickshank Memorial Arena in Port Hardy on Saturday.

Humphrey stated he was proud of how the team played, and that he feels it’s “all starting to come together.”

The Wild had a rematch against the Clippers on Sunday, and this game was no different than the last. They came out aggressive, scoring an avalanche of goals over three periods courtesy of Verbrugge (x2), Walkus (x2), Haleah Rienks (x2), Henschke (x2), and Kiara Miller, earning an 8-0 shutout thanks to great netminding from Wild goaltender Sydney Greer.
