Oceanside goes into a shootout to take the title over Kerry Park

The host Cowichan Valley Capitals finally got into the win column during their final game of a Peewee C hockey tournament Dec. 29-30 at Fuller Lake Arena.

After three straight losses, Cowichan Valley coaches Brian Banks, Bill West, John Mountain and Jason Closson got the team on track and closed out the tournament with a resounding 7-2 victory over Powell River.

Trey West led the charge with four goals while Brody Miller added a pair and Riley McMurtry notched a single.

Braeden Fraser replied with both goals for Powell River.

There were eight teams in the tournament. Oceanside captured gold, Kerry Park 2 earned silver and Comox took the bronze.

Oceanside prevailed in the final after overtime and a shootout. The winning shootout tally was supplied by Kaiden Davies.

In the battle for the bronze, Comox defeated Nanaimo’s No. 4 team 6-4.

Cowichan Valley lost its opening game to Kerry Park’s No. 2 team 5-2 despite a pair of goals from Gabriel Wiebe. Benjamin Wools had a pair to lead Kerry Park.

Cowichan couldn’t find the back of the net against Nanaimo 5 and lost 6-0. Kadin Boyle earned the shutout by turning away several shots, but he also got lucky on a couple of great chances by the Caps to keep the slate clean.

Jayden Sohal connected with two goals for Nanaimo 5 in that game.

Cowichan’s other game ended in an 11-5 loss to Comox. West fired a hat trick in vain while Cochrane, Cowichan’s captain, netted a pair of goals.

Hudson Belanger set the pace for Comox with three goals while Samarah Drygasuk and Allyson Ellis each had a pair.

There were several girls playing in the tournament on the various teams.
