Midget Generals fit to be tied — again

  • Nov. 10, 2016 12:00 p.m.

Despite not having won a game, the Oceanside Midget Generals rep hockey team remains unbeaten in Vancouver Island Division 2 play.

Christian Stokes scored two goals and Jose Hope and Isaac Larocque-Wall added one goal each Sunday as the midgets forged a 4-4 tie with the Powell River Kings in Powell River.

It was the second straight draw to open the season for the Generals (0-0-2), who tied the TriPort Eagles by the same 4-4 score one week earlier in Port McNeill.

Hope added an assist and Drayden Pitcairn, Noah Seselja and Michael Steward chipped in helpers in the tight game in Powell River, which was tied 1-1 after one period and 2-2 after the second.

Munroe Renouf earned the tie in goal for Oceanside, which will not play its first Division 2 home game until Nov. 19.

The Generals take a break from league play this weekend to compete in the Alberni Valley Remembrance Day Tournament at Port Alberni’s Weyerhauser Arena. The midgets open play Friday with a

6 p.m. game against Richmond and return to Port Alberni Saturday to face Sooke at 10 a.m. and Kerry Park at 3 p.m. in pool play. Sunday’s playoff match ups and times have yet to be announced.

 

Bantams go big in win

The bantams improved to 2-0 in Division 2 play and will return home, following the Remembrance Day weekend break, to face Nanaimo Nov. 19 at Oceanside Place Arena.
