Wookies skate past Bolts
In Comox Valley Minor Hockey Association play this past weekend the Preferred Woodfinishing Wookies played the Slegg Lumber Bolts in exciting PeeWee action.
Just 48 seconds into the game the Bolts got the game off to a quick start on a fine rush by Issac Van der Vliet who beat the incomparable Nicholas Mitchell. After that Mitchell closed the door and six minutes later Aubrey Brass got his first of two goals to tie the score at the six-minute mark with a brilliant pass from Raymond Fukui. The tight-checking game broke open at the 18:48 mark of the first period when Axel Noringseth demonstrated his deft scoring touch with another assist from Fukui.
The second period saw a brilliant rush by Harley Zolner on a pass from Levom Shilling result in a top drawer, highlight reel goal. Wyatt Waite who also got an assist in the game scored to make it 4-1 with help from Noringseth. The final score was by Aubrey Brass on a Zedneo Charo-like slapshot from the blue line.
Although the scoreboard showed the final score as Preferred Woodfinishing Wookies 6, Slegg Lumber Bolts 1, both sides demonstrated that if you are playing you are winning and the ultimate goal is fun.
