Sooke’s Peewee-A Thunderbirds duking it out on the ice vs. Triport’s Eagles

Sooke Hockey News

A summary of all the hockey news happening in the Sooke community.

It has been a rollercoaster for Sooke’s hockey teams this past weekend, with both losses and wins.

Peewee A Thunderbirds played a valiant and extremely-close game against Triport’s Eagles on Saturday, unfortunately losing to Triport with a score of 6-7.

Sooke’s Midget A played their entire season in division two and finished second. During the round robin portion of play offs they finished first in the South Island, which then advanced them to the finals.

Midget A was awarded home ice advantage for the first game of their best of three series against Port Alberni. Unfortunately they lost game #1 on home ice 5-2. The second game was a high-adrenaline, high-impact game and the Sooke boys put everything they had out on the ice, which resulted in a 6 – 5 win for Sooke. Last Saturday on home ice in front of a packed arena they won 3-0 to secure their spot at the BC championships. Sooke Midget A are now officially the best tier 3 midget rep team on Vancouver Island.

“These boys have worked extremely hard to get to where they are,” said Bev Berger, Sooke Minor Hockey manager and District of Sooke councillor. “The amount of skill and discipline that they have shown is extraordinary.”

Sooke Minor Hockey will be well represented at the Provincial championships in Dawson Creek, March 15 – 20.

The Midget-A team is lead by their captain, Jonah Philip and assistants Charlie Richardson and Jaden Lawrence,

Outstanding goaltending by Shawn Parkinson and Max Clouser.

Forward line: Ty Didmon, Nin Dougall, Tyson Friesen, Aidan Goluch, Jack Kendall, Aidan Lindal, Carter Navarrete, Calijah Philip

Defense: Ky Berger, Dallas Brooks, Jared Purdy Dexter Kennedy

Coached by Craig Didmon, Kevin Berger, Nick Phifer and Dave Kendall.
