Peewee Predators have sweet season opener

The Sicamous Peewee Predators travelled to Lumby for their first game of the 2011/12 hockey season.

The Sicamous Peewee Predators travelled to Lumby for their first game of the 2011/12 hockey season.

The first period was very tight defensively for both teams and ended with no scoring.

Sicamous opened the scoring early in the second period with a goal by Haydn Gjaltema, assisted by Kohen Martin.

Lumby scored twice before the end of the period to take a 2-1 lead into the third.

The third period was very exciting, with back-and-forth action and many exciting scoring chances that were denied by both teams’ goalies.

Sicamous tied the game on a goal by Kohen Martin (unassisted) with just over six minutes left in the game.

This goal energized the Predators and got them really working hard. That hard work paid off as they took the lead on a goal by Chloey Martin (unassisted) with just under five minutes left in the game.

Lumby made holding on to the lead very difficult but Sicamous held on with solid defensive play and stellar goaltending by Tyler Kruger to take a 3-2 win in their season opener.

Emily Gordon and Brad Norrish both had very solid games on defence and their efforts were recognized. Good work Sicamous Peewee Predators and good luck next weekend as Lumby travels to Sicamous to complete the home and home.
