The Kootenay Wild (green uniforms) are seen during their second game against the Island Seals in Campbell River last weekend

Kootenay Wild 1-and-2 against Islands Seals

Nelson female midget AAA hockey team hit Vancouver Island gaining a win.

The Kootenay Wild earned their second win of the season on the road against the Island Seals in Campbell River.

The girls had one win and two losses over the weekend.

Game one was “exciting” according to assistant coach D’Arcy Caron, even though the Wild lost 3-2. Goals came from Wild players Emma Wheeldon and  Kendra Waterstreet while Kaitlyn Daly tended the Wild net.

Caron described the second game as “very physical,” adding goaltender Catalina Hartland had a “stellar performance.” Goals were scored by Wheeldon and Rachel Teslak.  Even though the Wild played shorthanded five-on-three for the last two minutes of game, they held on for a 2-1 win.

The third match was hard-fought, said Caron, but the Wild lost 3-0. “We couldn’t beat the Island Seals goaltender, who played excellent,” wrote Caron. Hartland played again in net for the Wild.

The Wild hit the road again in mid-November to play three games against the Greater Vancouver Comets.
