Peewee Seawolves go 1-1

The Prince Rupert Peewee team battled penalties and injuries in Vanderhoof and Fraser Lake

The Peewee Seawolves battled injuries and illness over the weekend to go 1-1 after playing games against Vanderhoof and Fraser Lake on Oct. 28 and 29.

Peewee coach Jamie Lowe said a flu bug hit the team, resulting in them having to play with only 11 players in the team’s first game against Vanderhoof, who had 17 players. He said the numbers disparity combined with penalties made the game challenging for his team. Falling behind early, the Seawolves were never able to establish themselves in the game and lost 9-5.

“We were shorthanded, but penalty trouble cost us,” he said. “Every time we got some momentum, we ended up in the penalty box.”

Lowe said the team had something to prove after that first game, and the overall play up and down the bench was much better in their second game of the road trip against Fraser Lake.

“With a bench that short, we needed everyone to contribute and everyone did contribute,” he said.

The Seawolves led 3-1 after the first period, before a brief lull in the second allowed Fraser Lake back into the game. Leading 4-3 going into the third period, Prince Rupert retook control of the game with three more goals to take home the 7-3 win.

Lowe said the team needs to work on staying out of the penalty box as they move ahead in the season, as playing a man down was the Seawolves number one issue on this road trip.

“Disciplined, we must be more disciplined, that’s it in a nutshell,” he said. “You mentality and your mindset changes when you’re in a penalty, your playing to prevent goals instead of score.”

The Peewee Seawolves next game is against Terrace on Nov. 12 at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre ice arena.
