It was a rough start to the BC Major Midget League regular season for the Kootenay Ice. The regional midget squad dropped both home games at the Nelson and District Community Complex over the weekend set with the North Island Silvertips.

The weekend started Saturday afternoon with a 5-1 loss to the Nanaimo-based Silvertips.

On Sunday morning the Ice played a spirited first period and held the Silvertips to a 2-1 lead. But the locals could not hold off the offence in the final 40 minutes, losing the game 10-2.

The Ice have five Nelson Minor Hockey graduates in their line-up this season including Brandon Sookro, Nolan Percival, Sam Weber, Austin Tambellini and Adam Maida.

Next up for Ice is a trip to Kelowna where they will tangle with the Okanagan Rockets on the October 6-7 weekend. The team’s next home action is October 27-28 when they play the Thompson Blazers at Trail’s, Cominco Arena. The next games in Nelson will take place on the December 1-2 weekend when they host the Valley West Hawks at the NDCC.
