Kootenay Midget Ice forward Justin Post gets a great chance on Sunday at the Nelson and District Community Complex.

Solid weekend for Kootenay Ice

The Kootenay Ice major midget team hosted the South Island Thunderbirds this weekend

The Kootenay Ice major midget team hosted the South Island Thunderbirds this weekend at the Nelson and District Community Complex. Though they only managed to come away with one of a possible four points, the regional squad played some entertaining hockey.

On Saturday night the team — comprised of players from all around the East and West Kootenay — built a three goal lead after forty minutes, but let it slip away in the third. The Thunderbirds notched three unanswered goals in the final frame to earn the tie.

Sunday afternoon’s contest was a hard fought affair that was tied at 1-1 after the first two periods. South Island managed scored early in the final period, but the locals pushed back hard with three straight goals to close out the game and earn the 4-1 victory.

The Ice are now tied with the Thunderbirds for tenth place in the 11-team BC Major Midget League.

The Ice now travel to Coquitlam this coming weekend for a two-tame set with the third place Vancouver NE Chiefs.
