The Prince Rupert Seawolves faced off on home ice for a double header against Terrace Kermodes in the Midget A league over the weekend.

The first game, held on Saturday afternoon, resulted in a player from each team being handed a suspension and three more players getting thrown out for misconduct.

Saturday’s game saw the Seawolves lose to Terrace 8-0.

Forward Keaten Hartness scored the first goal of the weekend matchup. Logan Kluss and Zachary Gull contributed half of the score with a pair of markers each. Reece Warren, Brady Kerr and Jackson Mulder made up the other three goal scorers. Defencemen Bryton Gaudet and Everett Poole earned themselves a pair of assists each.

Midway through the third period Prince Rupert forwards Dominic Strand and Luke Rabel, along with Terrace’s Jared Gibson, got kicked out of the remainder of the game for misconduct with no suspensions.

With 22 seconds left to play a fight broke out resulting in the Sealwolves’ Nicholas Pirillo getting tossed, and later handed a two game suspension. Gull received a one game suspension for the Kermodes.

Sunday morning’s game began with the two players out. Hartness once again claimed Terrace’s first goal 11 minutes into the first period, tying it up after Aiden Watkinson had scored for Prince Rupert less than three minutes into the game.

Gaudet, switching to forward for Sunday’s game, scored Terrace’s second goal halfway through the first period. Kluss ended the first by marking the game 3-1.

The second period saw six goals for Terrace, with Gaudet tallying a hat trick. His next two goals were scored three minutes apart in the second. Between his goals he also assisted on a marker by Poole.

The second period closed with a score of 9-2, with Hayden Wilson earning the Seawolves’ second goal of the game. Josh Lieghton started the third strong, with a goal for Rupert less than two minutes in, but it was not enough to catch up. Hartness bookmarked the matchup by scoring the last goal, ending in a 10-3 loss for the Seawolves.

These were the first two games for the Seawolves this season, who are hoping for their first win in two years. Their manager, Steve Jack, said last year’s drought can be attributed to the fact that most of the team was in their first year — 15 years old — playing against third year boys — 17 years old.
