Peewees rally falls short in opening game of hockey doubleheader in Parksville

A rebound goal on the final play of the game lifted the visiting Peninsula Eagles to a 7-7 draw with the Oceanside Generals bantams in Vancouver Island Hockey League tiering play at Oceanside Place Arena Saturday.

Koby Verbicky scored five goals, including the go-ahead score, as the Generals built a 7-6 lead with 7:05 remaining in the final period.

But during a scrum at the net with 2:20 to play on the game clock, the Eagles’ Keaton Williams flicked the puck into the net after Generals goalie Isaac Belveal turned aside two previous shots.

The game was then stopped as the arena time was reached.

Cage Newans and Sean Brendeland each had a goal and an assist for Oceanside. Other assists were collected by Ryan Shaw, Steven Callevaert and Brenden Jamieson.
