COLWOOD, B.C. – It just wasn’t the Comox Valley Glacier Kings’ night.
The Glacier Kings saw their modest two-game win streak snapped after they fell 7-2 to the Westshore Wolves Wednesday at Colwood’s Q Centre.
“I’m realistic,” Kamprath said. “I know we’re not going to win every single game. “A Wednesday night game is weird – we don’t play Wednesday night usually and it just seemed like everybody was off.”
It was a battle of two cellar dwellars in their respective Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League divisions.
Despite the win, the Wolves are at the bottom of the South Division at 6-13-2-3 while the Glacier Kings remain last in the North Division at 3-20-1-1.
The game was never close.
The Wolves led 3-1 after the first period, scored the only goal of the middle frame, and outscored the Glacier Kings 3-1 in a final frame in which they outshot the visitors 20-5.
Glacier Kings Finn Withey and Grady Robertson scored power play goals in a losing effort.
Connor Eddy led the Wolves with a pair of goals. Four other players found the net for Westside.
The Glacier Kings will look to get back on the winning track with back-to-back games this weekend.
On Saturday, they rematch with the Wolves at the Comox Valley Sports Centre. Opening puck drop is at 7:30 p.m.
Then, on Sunday afternoon, they travel to Parksville’s Oceanside Place to take on the Oceanside Generals starting at 2:30 p.m.
Kamprath said the Glacier Kings just need to shrug off the loss, and focus on the positives that brought them two wins in three games going into Wednesday night.
“We have two games this weekend,” Kamprath said. “One loss is not going to change our mindset at all.”
