Three games; 24 hours

A triplet of games in three hours tuckers out Thunder.

A Thunder player takes the puck down ice in one game of a double-header against the Prince George bantam Cougars on Saturday.

The Midget Thunder had a busy weekend, with three games in less than 24 hours over the weekend.

The Thunder played Williams Lake, in Williams Lake, on Friday evening. to a 6-5 final in the Thunder’s favour.

“Our guys showed a lot of poise and we were able to score one late to go ahead by one and hang on for the win,” coach Rick Izzard.

The Thunder rose early Saturday to take on the tier two Prince George team in a double header. The Quesnel skaters pulled up their socks to net themselves a win, at 5-4, for the first meeting.

The rapid-fire schedule took it out of them in the second of the double header, with the Prince George getting the best of the Thunder in that meeting, to the tune of 5-3.

“Three games in less than 24 hours took a toll on our guys and they looked pretty tired by the end of the second game and couldn’t put anything together offensively,” Izzard said.

The Thunder will be back on the ice this weekend here in Quesnel, hosting a nine team tournament starting Friday evening.
