Westshore Wolves sending four to Jr. B all-star game

Rylan Ball scores in OT Wednesday to give Wolves a 6-5 win over Comox Valley

As the Vancouver Island Hockey League steams toward the all-star break, the Westshore Wolves continue to hold down second spot in the South Division.

The Wolves (23-12-1-1), who play Peninsula in North Saanich tomorrow (Jan. 9), needed overtime to beat the visiting Comox Valley Glacier Kings 6-5 on Wednesday at The Q Centre.

Rylan Ball notched the winner, his second goal of the game, 1:37 into overtime and finished off a passing play from Corey Peterson and Jordan Martin. The Kings had tied the game at 5-5 with less than four minutes to go in the third when Dylan Sampson scored a shorthanded marker.

Cory Hatcher also scored twice for the Wolves, while singles went to Jacob Malloch and James Severs.

Westshore had entered the Christmas break by dropping a rare 4-3 decision at home to the last-place Panthers back on Dec. 21.

Following last night’s game, Severs continues to pace the Wolves’ offence, collecting 21 points in his 10 games with the team since coming over from the Campbell River Storm. He has 43 points in 31 total games.

Corey Peterson is next with 14 goals and 27 assists for 41 points, followed by Connor Krupa (12-14-26), Spencer Preece (11-13-24), Hatcher (14-9-23) and Clay Carson (3-19-22).

Comox Valley hosts the All-Star Classic on Sunday, Jan. 18. Joining Team South will be Severs, Peterson, Carson and defenceman Drayson Pears, Westshore’s top-scoring blueliner with five goals and 16 assists.
