U18 Lightning collect their first victory

The U18 Mid Island Lightning collected their first win of the season and nearly added a second one in a doubleheader last Sunday.

Despite being rained out of both practice days in the preceding week, the U18 Mid Island Lightning collected their first win of the season and nearly added a second one in a doubleheader against North Island at the Cowichan Sportsplex last Sunday.

After missing the previous weekend with an injury, goalie Parker Teufel returned to the Cowichan lineup with a vengeance in a 12-3 win in the first game, holding the North Island Rage to one goal in each of the first three quarters before shutting the door in the fourth. Mid Island’s passing clicked and the defence stuck fast to the North Island attackers.

Hunter Hieta alone scored four goals, more than the entire North Island team, while Kyle Page and Jacob Taylor had three apiece. Devon McCormick and Brayden Grantham added singles.

In the second game, it wasn’t until the final minute of play that the Rage were able to pull ahead for the win. Teufel played out in the first half and scored twice, while Page also had two goals. Clayton Vickers, Kyle McDill, Jack Sanderson, Brandon McDill and U15 call-up Brandon Carlson also scored.
