Midgets take PR by storm

Sooke travelled to the Sunshine Coast last weekend and walked away with a 3-1 win and a 3-3 tie.

On a stormy day that took the Sooke Thunderbirds more than 11 hours to get to Powell River, it turned out be a good weekend after all.

The Midget A club travelled to the Sunshine Coast and walked away with a 3-1 win and a 3-3 tie.

Powell River Kings are likely the Thunderbirds’ biggest challenge this season as the two battle out in the Vancouver Island Amateur Hockey Association.

The weekend games leave the two squads within a point of each other.

Unfortunately for Sooke, the first game on Saturday was exhibition and meant nothing in the standings.

Sooke goal scorers were Aiden Goluch, Boston Greenhough and Nin Dougall.

On Sunday, each squad took home a point in the standings. This time, Dougall, Tyson Friesen and Carter Navarrete tallied markers.

Sooke coach Kevin Berger was happy with his team’s performance over the weekend,

“We had all lines firing, from our rookies to our veterans,” he said. “Powell River is a tough team and we held our own in both games.”
