Creston peewee team wins three games

Web Lead

Creston Valley Minor Hockey Association’s peewee house team played three East Kootenay games this weekend against Cranbrook Western Roofing and Kimberley, winning all three.

On Saturday, they played at home against Cranbrook, winning 11-3. The first goal of the game was by Alex Blackmore. Less than two minutes later, Levi Palmer scored. Cranbrook replied with two goals to tie it up. Alex scored an unassisted short-handed goal with 3:18 left in the period.

The second period started off with Alex and Vinson Blackmore scoring Creston goals. There was then much back and forth action between the teams until Alex scored a short-handed goal. One minute later, Levi scored again. With 2:46 left, Creston had a power play, with Vinson Blackmore scoring.

Tyson Steed started the third period off with a bang only 17 seconds into it. With 7:21 left in the game, Kenton Blackmore scored Creston’s 10th goal, and Alex ended it with an unassisted goal.

The Sunday morning rematch started with Creston’s Justice Samuels Mund getting the first goal, followed by Cranbrook’s only goal. Then Alex broke the tie with Vinson assisting. The rest of the game was all Creston scoring, with Vinson, Alex (two) and Kenton Blackmore in the second period, and Kenton in the third period, for a 7-1 win.

The team had a break long enough to rest and refuel, then head north to take on Kimberley. The first period looked like it was going to be scoreless, but with 7:49 remaining, Mund and Vinson sent the puck to Alex to score. Then Kenton scored the second goal of the first period, making the score 2-0. In the second, Denek Blackmore (two) and Tyson Steed scored three more goals while Kimberley scored their one and only. In the third period Alex and Palmer added to their lead, for a socre of 8-1.

Peewee house will next be hosting a home tournament Dec. 9-11.

•The Creston Chiefs peewee rep hockey team had two home games on the weekend. On Saturday they hosted Trail in an exhibition game, and in an exciting hard-hitting game, the two evenly matched teams settled for a 1-1 tie. It was a great skating game with lots of one-on-one battles, and the team has to realize they will learn more from close games than the blowout wins.

On Sunday, Cranbrook was in town for a league game. Both teams played hard and even, but the Chiefs took way too many penalties. Cranbrook eventually tied the game at the seven-minute mark of the third. The Chiefs scored the game-winner with 6:54 left in the game and then finished them off with three goals in the last five minutes to make the final score 5-1. With the win, the team remains undefeated in league play.
