Rep peewees roll to 6-4 win in hockey opener

Generals kick off season with home victory; tiering games coming up for all divisions

  • Sep. 22, 2016 11:00 a.m.

Sam Davidson and Denen Scott scored two goals each as the Oceanside Generals peewee hockey team opened its preseason schedule with a 6-4 win over the Nanaimo Clippers at Oceanside Place Arena Sunday.

Goalie Max Jeffery picked up the win with a strong effort, particularly in a third period that featured several key saves while the Generals were clinging to a 5-4 lead.

The Generals trailed 2-1 and 3-2 in the see-saw game before taking control late in the second period. Davidson and Scott scored back-to-back goals one minute and 24 seconds apart to put Oceanside up 4-3 entering the third, and Kaden Wentzell notched the game-winner five minutes into the final period, just before Nanaimo scored to close within 5-4.

Jeffery then kept the visitors off the board until Drew Foreman converted off a nice centring pass from Dallas Earl for an insurance score with 3:48 left to play.

Brody Simpson collected three assists to spark the offence, and Easton Sandberg added a helper in the win.

 

Rep tiering begins

The Vancouver Island Amateur Hockey Association kicks off its placement round of games this weekend, with several ice slots scheduled at Oceanside Place.

Games are scheduled Saturday for 2:15 and 4:30 p.m. on the Howie Meeker rink and at 5:30 p.m. in Kraatz Arena, but matchups were not yet finalized as of Wednesday.

The Atom development team is scheduled to host Cowichan Valley Sunday at 12:15 p.m. in Kraatz Arena.
