The Canfisco midget reps played host to their Terrace counterparts this weekend, but were unable to come away with a win.

On Saturday the team found themselves in a hole early as Terrace’s  Colin Bell put one past Brett Hutcheon 2:05 into the game and  Austin Turner made it 2-0 with 14:27 still on the clock. Before the period ended Terrace’s Colten Braid added a goal to put Prince Rupert down 3-0 heading into the

second.

In the second Austin Wier put Prince Rupert on the board with 16:41 to play, but Terrace responded with an avalanche of goals in the remainder of the frame to lead 7-1 with 20 minutes to play.

In the third Prince Rupert fought back. Brett Carey scored with 6:27 to play and Jordan Venditelli made it 7-3, but a goal by Terrace’s Ryan Roseboom put the cap on an 8-3 Terrace win.

The next morning it was Prince Rupert that scored early on, as Jordan Aubee found the back of the net just 42 seconds into the game. That would prove to be all the scoring in the first, giving Prince Rupert a 1-0 lead through one.

Unfortunately that would be the final goal for the home team as Terrace tied things up with 12:30 left to play and took the lead with nine minutes to go in the second. In the third Terrace added two more goals en-route to a 4-1 victory.

This weekend in Skeena Valley League action, the pee wee reps face off with the Terrace bantam girls’ squad while the midgets are set to compete against Kitimat in exhibition action.

The league will then take a break for the next two week for the holiday season. After the break the pee wee reps will re-open Skeena Valley League play at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre against Kitimat on Jan. 5 and 6.
