Midget Thunderbirds double up on Grizzlies

Nin Dougall scores twice in 4-2 victory in Colowood

Nin Dougall had two goals to lift the Sooke Thunderbirds to a 4-2 win over the Juan de Fuca Grizzlies in Midget A hockey at The Q Centre in Colwood Saturday.

Carter Navarrete and Austin Greenhough added singles for the Thunderbirds, who have won two straight.

The Thunderbirds, who played strong the entire game, were short-handed with only 12 skaters due to injuries and suspension.

“The entire team stepped up. They had a lot of ice team, but short shifts and it paid off for us,” said head coach Kevin Berger.

Sooke’s two wins puts it in first place in the Vancouver Island Hockey Association Tier 2 Division, with a perfect 2-0 record. Tier 2 is loaded with talent with the Thunderbirds facing off with teams from Powell River, Juan de Fuca, Nanaimo, Oceanside and Saanich.

This weekend the Thunderbirds play in the Alberni Valley Minor Hockey Association Midget Tournament. Sooke opens the tournament Friday with a game against Ridge Meadows.

In other weekend hockey action, the Atom A Thunderbirds beat Comox Valley 16-0; Bantam C3 clipped past Saanich C2 by a 3-2 count; and Bantam C1 took a win from Saanich C2, 8-6.
