Season ends for Kootenay Ice, Wild

Ice lose pair of regular season games; Wild lose in playoff appearance.

The Kootenay Ice finished the regular season in the basement of the BC Hockey Major Midget League.

The Ice fell 6-2 to the Vancouver NW Giants at home Saturday before losing again, 10-4 to the Giants on Sunday.

In the first game, the Giants scored five goals in the first period en route to the win.

Sunday’s game went even worse for the Ice. They surrendered four goals in the first and another five in the second in the blowout loss.
