Panthers tie with Wolves in weekend game

Last Friday night, the Peninsula Panthers had all the answers against the visiting Westshore Wolves

Panthers goaltender Joey Karrer steers aside one of 35 shots directed his way in action against the Westshore Wolves last Friday night at the Panorama Recreation Centre.

The Peninsula Panthers started slowly on Saturday evening in a game in Comox against the Glacier Kings, but as the Zamboni took to the ice after both teams had left, the scoreboard displayed the story of the game — Visitors 9, Home 2.

The Panthers trailed the Glacier Kings 2 to 1 after 20 minutes of game play, however the game was all theirs as they scored five unanswered goals in the second frame and three more in the third.

Leading the way was Jackson Skerratt who had two goals and two assists, while Connor Logan and Cole Glover also chipped in with two each.

Scoring singles were Sean Buchanan, Tate Coughlin and Ben Meek.

Friday night the Panthers had all the answers against the visiting Westshore Wolves.

After beating them the previous Friday, the Panthers found themselves on top by a 3 to 1 count midway through the third period at the Panorama Recreation Centre.

But, the Wolves tied the game with only five minutes left and the two teams went into a five minute four-on-four overtime.

With just 30 seconds left, Glover was whistled for delay of game and this penalty carried into the final five minutes of overtime.

The Panthers managed to kill the penalty however, could not beat Wolves starter Nick Dueck.

The Wolves found the same fate against Panthers goaltender Joey Karrer and so after 70 minutes of exciting action the two teams settled on a 3 to 3 tie.

Skerratt, Glover and rookie Adam Page, with his first goal of the season, were the Panthers marksmen while Karrer stopped 32 of 35 shots.

The Panthers are back in action this coming Friday when they host the same Comox Glacier Kings at 7:30 p.m. The arena seats should be completed by then.
