Midget Reps faced Port Alberni and won

Team braved the weather to play up-Island and came home winners

Sooke Midget Rep braved the weather predictions to face Port Alberni Saturday.

Nick Dueck deftly held the opponents off the board after a lack-luster first period for Sooke.  Midway through the second, effective passing from Quinton MacDonell and Trevor Wickeim assisted Bradon Senft to strike first for Sooke.

Effective penalty kills from D-men Linden White and Brendan David kept Port off the board and with 27 seconds left in the second, Senft scored again with a great offensive zone effort and assist of Wickeim. Halfway through the third, after many power play efforts from the home team, Port Alberni finally found a way past Dueck.

A Sooke power play effort late in the third, had assists from Nick Pfeifer and Luke Pitrie to Ryan Elder who potted a wrister from the blue line making the final score Sooke 3, Port Alberni 1.

Next home game is this Sunday at 4 p.m. against an always tough opponent, Kerry Park.
