Sooke Minor Hockey wrap up

The bantam rep boys team captured gold at the Fuller Lake Remembrance Day tournament against Comox.

Sooke bantam rep Captain Brayden Bangert scores in a spectacular shoot-out finish in the semi-finals game of the Fuller Lake Remembrance Day tournament. Sooke beat Comox in the final to take gold.

Midget — The Sooke Midget Rep played a Remembrance tournament at the Big Stick in Cowichan this past weekend.

The first game vs. North Delta had a scoreless first period, with Nick Dueck holding guard in net.  Early in the second, North Delta had some luck,  adding two more making it 3-0 for the visitors.

Sooke found their alarm clocks in the third period with Luke Pitrie starting off the offence and Brendan David assisting.  Ryan Elder and Alfred Nelson held fast on defence and with three minutes to go in the third, Sooke scored three goals.

Tim Kirk potted two with assists from Linden White, Braeden Swaile, and Luke Pitrie.  In an exciting finish, Luke Pitre scored the tying goal with assists from Tom Kirk and Brendan David.  Game tied four all.

Second game vs. Langley had Langley up 1-0 after one period.  In the second, Langley scored two but Nick Pfiefer found the back of the net with assists from Braeden Swaile and Linden White, making it 3-1.

Goaltender Jacob Millward (AP player) denied Langley a penalty shot opportunity, but Sooke was unable to respond with Langley scoring three goals in the third.  Langley 6 Sooke 1.

The third game vs. Tri-Port had them leading 2-0 after one period of play.

Midway through the second, Nick Pfiefer scored with assists from Tom Kirk and Brandon Cornbill, but Tri Port came back with one of their own making in 3-1.

With one minute left in the second, Jared Pleasants found the net with the assist of Nick Pfiefer.  The third period had Tri Port come up again with a goal, but not long after AP player Michael Turcotte potted one for Sooke with a nice pass from Jordan Brooks (AP).

With a couple minutes left, Nick Dueck left the net, but Sooke was unable to even things up.  Tri Port 4, Sooke 3.

The last game of the tourney had Sooke playing Comox.  Comox opened the scoring midway through the first, but was answered by Jared Pleasants unassisted shortly after, leaving the first period tied at one.

No score in the second thanks to the unrelenting goal minding of Nick Dueck.  Early in the third Tom Kirk passed to Luke Pitrie who found Jared Pleasants’ stick to send it netward for Sooke.  Microseconds later, Jared Pleasants found the net again for his first hat trick of the year, Sooke 3, Comox 1.

AP goaltender Jacob Millward took the net with three minutes left in the game and with a mere six seconds left on the clock, was able to shut down a penalty shot, keeping the score in Sooke’s favour.

 

Atom (girls) — Sooke’s first game  at the Female Face-Off was a hard fought battle with cross town rivals Peninsula.

Sooke came flying out of the gates jumping out to a three goal lead. A tenacious attack from Peninsula proved to be too much for the Sooke girls with the visitors eventually coming out on top.

Sooke’s second game was a back and forth battle with Nanaimo, as each time Sooke would take the lead Nanaimo would find a way to answer. It was midway through the third period when Sooke was able to net a couple of insurance goals that guaranteed them the win.

Saturday morning Sooke was at the arena long before dawn. The early start was not a problem for the Sooke girls as they came out of the gate kicking.

Sooke scored early and often while the opposition from Campbell River struggled to slow down the attack. Sooke cruised to an easy victory setting up a rematch with Peninsula for the gold medal.

Late Sunday afternoon was the rematch with the stands full and the crowd eagar. Peninsula scored early but Sooke was soon to respond and the game was knotted 1-1 at the end of the first period.

Sooke and Peninsula battled back and forth, but Peninsula’s offence proved to be too much for the Thunderbirds. Peninsula jumped out to a four goal lead but the girls in blue did not let up, losing the gap to two.

Unfortunately time was not on their side as the clock expired before they could finish their comeback. The girls took home silver.

Team members included Chloe Berger, Hannah Berger, Erin Chisholm, Julia Cissell, Laura Clark, Makayla Craig, Ireland Greenhough, Nadia Kendall, Maggie McKinnon, Moyra McHugh, Monica Madsen, Veronica Mason, Amelia Pierce, Ruby Spurr, Jordyn Thompson, Zoe Tremblay and Jayme Vivian.
