Day 2 of BC Hockey Juvenile Championships

Game seven on day 2 of the BC Hockey Juvenile Championships was the BWC against arch rival, the Richmond Blues.  The Winter Club found themselves sailing on the Richmond river of 'denied' as they get rocked 5-1.

Game eight and the last game of day 2 saw hometown Seafair up against top spot Surrey. Seafair and Surrey take the ice in epic form with 'U2' blaring through the speakers. With the energy and the large crowd, it felt like the Stanley Cup finals here in sunny downtown Richmond.

In net for Surrey was their powerhouse goalie #31 Jason Sidhu who has thus far stood between the pipes like a brick wall. Seafair's #1 Tyson Leblanc sat ready in his net to ward off any attempts by the approaching Thunder.

This game stands as one of the hardest hitting games in the Tournament. A quick goal by Surrey at 19:39 of the first period sent Seafair on their determined quest for a win.

Amazing net minding by both teams kept this game tight and tense.  The hard hits continued in the second period and with a two man advantage, Surrey scores at 11:29 to make it 2 - 0.  With a mere 8.4 seconds left on the clock, Seafair scores to end the period 2-1.

Penalty minutes were racked up in the third period as the Thunder and hometown Islanders battled it out on the ice. With 5:59 left in the game, Seafair would tie the game on an even strength goal.

The game would end in a dead exhaustive heated tie of 2-2.
