Tri Pen ban­tam Ice bat­tled back hard in the team’s round-of-16 matchup, but ul­ti­mately came out on the los­ing end at the 2017 East Coast IceJam tour­na­ment in Hal­i­fax.

The Ice trailed the Ken­nebe­ca­sis Val­ley Kings 3-0 in the third when goals late in the pe­riod from Daw­son Crane and Tyler Do­hey gave the team a glim­mer of hope. But the late push wasn’t enough for the Ice.

In round-robin play, the Ice pro­duced two wins, one reg­u­la­tion loss and an over­time loss. The team opened the tour­na­ment with a 5-3 vic­tory over the Cen­tral At­tack Hockey Club. Reilly Mayne led the way with two goals, while Jared Cluett, Josh El­ford and Liam Gre­gory contributed a goal apiece.

Tri Pen fol­lowed that ef­fort up with an­other win, de­feat­ing the North­west Bulls 6-4. Shaemus Best and Dy­lan Hart­son scored two goals each. Mayne and Corey Par­sons also scored for the Ice.

In the third round-robin game, Tri Pen lost in over­time by a score of 2-1 to the Prince County War­riors. Best scored the lone goal for Tri Pen. The Ice lost its fi­nal round-robin game to the Ken­nebe­ca­sis Val­ley Kings 6-2, with Joshua Chafe scor­ing both goals for Tri Pen.
