Peewee Silvertips split weekend games

The Podollan Inn Peewee Tier 2 Silvertips played a pair of tough games against division- leading opponents on the weekend

The Podollan Inn Peewee Tier 2 Silvertips played a pair of tough games against division- leading opponents on the weekend.

Saturday’s tilt saw the Tips drop a close 2-1 decision to the hometown Penticton Junior Vees. Both goaltenders shone; Rod May for the Tips making spectacular save after save to keep it close for the visitors. Colby Feist snared the lone marker for Salmon Arm.

Sunday’s game versus the West Kelowna Warriors ended with a much better result for the Silvertips, as they blanked the visitors 6-0 in Sicamous. Feist opened the scoring just seven minutes into the first period, Ty Sanford setting him up in front of the net on the power play. Feist would get his second of the game just two minutes later on a breakaway, this time short-handed.

Sanford would get his first of two on the afternoon just prior to the mid-game ice clean, out-waiting the Westside netminder before wristing it to the back of the net. Taylor Howard would then drive down the wing and Lucas Piekarczyk would pick up the rebound, flipping the puck up and over the sprawing goaltender for the Tips’ fourth goal. Mason Balon’s hard shot missed, but had enough mustard to rebound out front for Feist to seal the hat-trick just 17 seconds later. Sanford and Balon would combine for the Silvertip’s final goal of the game.

Gabriel Murrels-Allaway was rock-solid in net for the Tips, picking up the shutout.
