Tri-Port Wild pick up win in second league game

The Tri-Port Wild defeated the Victoria Ice Hawks on Saturday, Nov. 18.

The Tri-Port Midget Wild picked up a big win in their second league game of the season, defeating the Victoria Ice Hawks at the Chilton Regional Arena in Port McNeill on Saturday, Nov. 18.

The Wild got out to a hot start early on in the 1st period with a goal from Taylor Ranger at 13:44, assisted by Mercedes Trevor and Kerrigan Sharpe.

The Wild’s Mandy Foldy then scored at 11:02, assisted by Bree-Anna Henderson and Kaitlyn Wilson, to give them a solid 2-0 lead.

The Ice Hawks fought back and netted a goal of their own before the end of the 1st period to bring them within one of tying the game.

In the 2nd, Henderson scored at 7:14, assisted by Foldy, to pull the Wild ahead 3-1.

The Wild continued to put pressure on the Ice Hawks in the 3rd, and Foldy notched her second goal of the game at 14:24 to seal the win for the Wild 4-1.

“It was an awesome game,” said the Wild’s Team Manager Ashley Tapp, adding that there were very little penalties and both teams played with “lots of class.”

Tapp pointed out after the game that this was Foldy’s first time playing forward this season. “Mandy is usually one of our very strong defence, we were very proud” to see her scoring goals as a forward, said Tapp.

Sonja Walkus also stepped in to play defence, providing extra depth to cover for the Wild’s Captain Madison Van Will, who was away and not able to suit up for the game. “Sonja did an amazing job,” said Tapp, adding that Wilson also helped the team out by “winning so many draws.”

As of this writing, the Wild are 1-1 to start their 2016-2017 season, and their next home game is against the Juan De Fuca Grizzles on Saturday, Dec. 10 at the Doug Bondue Arena in Port Alice at 3:30 p.m.
