Kootenay Ice earn win, tie against North Island

The Kootenay Wild meanwhile lost two games in Vernon.

The last-place Kootenay Ice finally had a positive weekend.

Kootenay tied the North Island Silvertips 6-6 on Saturday and defeated them 3-1 on Sunday in the BC Hockey Major Midget League.

Hunter Floris and Bradley Ross each scored twice for the Ice (5-28-3) in the opening game, but the team had to settle for a tie after blowing a 4-1 lead to the Silvertips (5-25-6).

In the second game, Ross, Aiden Jenner and Brendan Makay scored to earn a much needed win for Kootenay.

Kootenay Wild swept in two-game series

A road trip to Vernon didn’t go well for the Kootenay Wild.

They dropped a 2-1 result to the Thompson-Okanagan Lakers (14-9-6) on Saturday before getting shut out 3-0 on Sunday in the female Midget AAA League.

The Wild remain in last place at 3-25-1.
