Silvertips stalled by Canadians

The North Island Silvertips found themselves in a couple of hard-fought games, but weren’t able to squeeze out a win.

Nanaimo’s B.C. Major Midget League team lost both its games against the Greater Vancouver Canadians on Saturday and Sunday at the University of British Columbia, falling 2-1 and then 3-1.

The Canadians scored in the final minutes of Saturday’s contest to break a tie. Jordan Levesque scored Nanaimo’s goal.

In the rematch, Shane Dial had the only goal for the ’Tips.

ICE CHIPS … The Silvertips have a bye week over the Thanksgiving weekend, then play the Okanagan Rockets Oct. 15-16 in Kelowna. Next home action is Oct. 22-23 versus the Thompson Blazers.
