This past weekend, Oct. 13, the Keith Nelson Countrywide LC team played against the CV2 Cowichan Capitals in both teams’ first game of the season.
After a fairly rough game with the LC team receiving 24 penalty minutes, and the CV2 team receiving 14, LC walked away with a 4-2 victory.
The LC team dominated the score board for most of the game with their first two goals scored in the first period.
“We seemed to be most successful when we stormed their net,” said coach Bob Day. “And controlled the puck in their end.”
Cale Mackie and Blake Haslam both scored a goal each in the first period, and Matt Kercher scored both remaining goals in the second.
Day says that one of the things the LC team will need to work on this season is better puck control in their end.
“And getting out of their end faster,” said Day.
LC midget’s next game is on Oct. 27, in Lake Cowichan.
