Isles open VIJHL season with loss to Wolves

The Kerry Park Islanders got off to a rough start as they began the 2014/15 Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League season with a 5-2 loss to the Westshore Wolves in Langford on Wednesday night.

The Isles, who are still awaiting a few players that may get cut from junior A camps, fell behind 1-0 in the first, but battled back in the second, matching the Wolves with two goals. The Wolves added two more unanswered goals in the third period.

Kyle Green and Ryan Paisley did the scoring for Kerry Park. Recording assists for the Isles were rookies Patrick Poets and Tyson Malloch, veteran defenceman David Bittner, and off-season acquisition Zack Smith.

Rookie Ty Rennie, who made one regular-season and two playoff appearances for Kerry Park last season, got the start in net and made 38 saves on 43 shots in the loss.

The Isles fired 22 shots at Westshore goalie Chris Smith.

The Isles will be on the road for their next two games, visiting Comox on Saturday and Nanaimo next Thursday before hosting the Peninsula Panthers for their home opener on Saturday, 
Sept. 13.
