Cowichan Lake Peewee League teams evenly matched

The Lake Cowichan Minor Hockey Association’s two Peewee League teams proved themselves evenly matched, last weekend.

The Lake Cowichan Minor Hockey Association’s two Peewee League teams proved themselves evenly matched, last weekend.

Because most other teams throughout the Cowichan Valley weren’t ready for competition, Lake Cowichan’s two Peewee League teams opted to play against each other for two games.

During the first game, Saturday, September 17, the white team won 6-5. The following day, the dark team won 7-6.

“So, the teams are pretty well set up,” light team coach Greg Clayton said.

Clayton is coaching the team alongside Mark Rowbottom and Lonny Ferguson.

The team dressed in dark last weekend is being coached by Mark Martin, Todd Vaughan, and Sandy McKenzie.

As of press time, Clayton said that the teams have yet to solidify schedules, but that he expects regular games to begin this weekend.

December 9 to 11 will see both of the local Peewee League teams inviting three competing teams to town, for two local mini tournaments.

The Gazette will print more information all local  hockey teams, as it becomes available.
