Prince Rupert Seawolves captain Austin Weir scored three times to lead his club to a 6-2 win over Kitimat.

Prince Rupert Seawolves captain Austin Weir scored three times including two unassisted goals to lead his club to a 6-2 win over the Kitimat Winterhawks in Skeena Valley Midget Rep hockey at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre on Sunday.

The Winterhawks hit the scoresheet first to take an early 1-0 lead on a goal by Joel Meier, but Prince Rupert replied just three minutes later when Sokrha Sekhon converted on a feed from Gary Sekhon at the 17:09 mark.

With less than a minute to go in the first, Weir struck for his first of three goals on a setup from  Kagan Will to give the Seawolves a 2-1 lead after 20 minutes of play.

Early in the second, Cole Atchison scored what would prove to be the game-winning goal on a setup by  Jared Carter and Sokrha Sekhon.

Weir struck again unassisted midway through the second to put the Seawolves ahead 4-1.

Kitimat attempted to make a game out of it on a goal four minutes later by Tanner Daum but Prince Rupert netminder Cole Lindsay shut the door as the two clubs headed into the third with the Seawolves up 4-2.

Weir picked up the hat trick with an unassisted goal early in the third to extend the lead to 5-2. Tyler Matalone salted away the Seawolves victory with a marker three minutes later assisted by David Smith and Drew Fudger.

Lindsay picked up the win in net for Prince Rupert while Kitimat Winterhawks goaltender Brenden Sorenson was saddled with the loss.
