The Kootenay Ice Major Midget league hosted the Valley West Hawks for their first home games of the season.

UPDATED: Kootenay Ice lose to Hawks and Rockets

The Nelson-based major midgets hosted the Fraser Valley team during their home opener weekend.

The Kootenay Ice major midgets lost both of their games over the weekend on the road against Kelowna’s Okanagan Rockets.

They fell 10-0 on Saturday and 6-4 on Sunday.  Hunter Floris scored two goals for the Ice and teammates Kobe Nishida, and Caige Sterzer each scored once.

The losses came after the Ice dropped two other games to the Valley West Hawks during their home-opening weekend this month, beginning with a discouraging 8-0 loss.

“Not a very good performance all around,” said coach Brian Jones.

Jones said the Ice have traditionally been near the bottom of the league, so they have “always fought a lack of confidence,” which he said was evident during the game.

The Ice faired better the following day, even though they lost 5-4.

“Not the result we wanted but a very good performance nonetheless,” said Jones.

The Ice led 3-2 in the second but the Hawks tied it up in the last two minutes of the second, and pulled ahead in the third for the win.

Single goals were scored for the Ice by Bradley Ross, Connor Seib, Reese Tambellini and Hunter Floris.

The Ice’s record now stands at 1-8-1, but they are one point back of the North Island Silvertips as they attempt to get out of the league basement.

They return home to Nelson for the Halloween weekend for two games against the Caribou Cougars, who are fourth  among the 11 teams.
