The Omineca Ice took two of a possible four points during a weekend double-header against Lac La Hache.

The Ice took home the points during Saturday evening’s game, despite being a little short benched in comparison to the Tomahawks.

Lac La Hache opened up the scoring in the first period with a goal after nine minutes from Will Louie.

Alex McKenzie from the Omineca Ice tied up the score with a goal with four minutes to go in the first assisted by Dustin Erickson and Justin Alessandrini.

Period two saw the Tomahawks take the lead temporarily with a goal in the first minute from Dave Archie. The Ice tied it up again with three minutes left of the period with a goal from Dustin Shields assisted by Tyrell Turgeon and Ken Schmit.

Both teams fought hard in the third and despite numerous chances at both ends, the game went to a shoot-out. Thanks to some great saves from Ice goalie Paul Simoes and a fantastic winning goal from Derek Little, the Ice took the points.

Sunday’s games saw the tables turn and the Ice lose their steam. Lac La Hache took the points winning 8 – 2.

The Ice face the Tomahawks at home this weekend with a game at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday.

 

“We are now in a battle with the Tomahawks to get to the Coy Cup playoffs so this is an important game for us,” said Omineca Ice coach Chris Reed.
