Midgets skate to win and tie

It has been a good game for the Sooke Thunderbirds this weekend, bringing in a win and a tie.

The Sooke Midget A Thunderbirds powered their way to a win and a tie in the first weekend of tiering games in the Vancouver Island Hockey Association.

On Saturday, the Thunderbirds clobbered Mill Bay’s Kerry Park Islanders 7-4, with defenceman Aidan Wood collecting two goals. Other Sooke markers were scored by Brandon Jay, Jack Kendall, Tyson Friesen, Dexter Kennedy and James Vince.

Jay’s goal was special as it was his first game with the Thunderbirds and he scored it on his first shift.

Sooke came out flying in the game scoring four goals in the first period.

Sunday’s game against the Oceanside Icebreakers was marred by an injury to Sooke forward Aiden Gulach who crashed into the boarders, suffering a dislocated knee cap. Due to the injury, the game was called after two periods.

Vince scored Sooke’s lone goal in the second period.
