Pee wee Lakers improve to 3-1 record on MIHL season

The pee wee Lakers improved their record on the Mid-Island Hockey League season to a polished 3-1 record.

The pee wee Lakers improved their record on the Mid-Island Hockey League season to a polished 3-1 record after steamrolling over the Cowichan Valley Capitals at the Cowichan Lake Sports Arena by a score of 7-4 on Nov. 12.

“The Lakers pee wee C1 team is jelling into a fine-tuned machine,” said Lakers head coach, Greg Clayton.

The forward line of Tanner Cummings, Cole Anderson and Katie Ferguson were as effective as they were dominant in the weekend win.

“All the Lakers players played extremely well and showed great restraint in their physical game, earning themselves an extra point for fair play,” added the Lakers bench boss.

Peppering Cowichan Valley’s netminder with upwards of 50 shots, the Lakers offensive core was a force to be dealt with.

The Lakers maintained control of the puck for the majority of the game, forechecking efficiently and keeping play within the Capitals’ defensive zone. Clayton credited his defensive unit for this, highlighting that Nolan Fothergill, Luke Wiersma and Nathan Anderson. He also added that his defence was a major factor that truly helped in his team’s seven-goal parade.

“The defence had some hard point shots and had input on every Lakers’ goal,” said Clayton.

The Lakers resume MIHL action two weekends from now on Nov. 26 when they hit the road to to visit Nanaimo.
