SISEC WHITE win 1 and loose 3 in Penticton, BC at the CSSHL Showcase on the weekend


PENTICTON, BC. – SISEC WHITE packed the bus and headed to Penticton for the Prep Showcase weekend opening the weekend with their second match up with Pursuit of Excellence on Friday, Sept 27th at 6:00pm.

SISEC was looking for redemption against POE who handed SISEC a 6-1 loss last Saturday at Winsport; but again fell to the high powered POE squad to a score of 7-2.

POE led 2-0 after the first period. Mason Mazur netted one at 14:18 of the second (Assists to Besner and Dekumbis) to bring the Selects back to within one goal. But POE scored less than 6 minutes later and again with 5 mins left in the frame to widen their lead to 4-1 after the second period.

POE started off the 3rd period with an early goal to extend their lead to 5-1 before Mazur answered back on the power play for his second of the game (Assists to Skapski and Leuppi), but that wasn’t enough as POE scored twice more before the end of the game. Final score POE 7, SISEC 2.

Saturday, September 27th;

SISEC White faced Burnaby Central U18 on Saturday morning and came out looking for their first win of the season. SISEC started the game up 2-0 with goals from Dekumbis (Assists to Issigonis and Ivanov) and a powerplay marker by Doak at 6:01 of the opening frame. BWC brought the game within one with an even strength goal of their own with 3:40 remaining in the first. BWC came out hard in the second period and netted the game tying goal at 15:05. BWC then took the lead in their hands with another marker at 8:46 before Kalenuik scored his first of the year (assists to Skapski and Issigonis) to tie up the game at 2 each going into the second intermission. Issigonis put the puck in the net off a rebound to regain a SISEC lead at 16:40 of the 3rd. SISEC built off the momentum and just 16 seconds later off the face-off Dekumbis found the back of the net to give SISEC a 2 goal lead just 4 minutes into the 3rd. BWC pushed back but only managed to get 1 more behind Krompocker in the 3rd giving SISEC their first PREP Division win of the season. Krompocker stopped 27 out of 30 shots he faced to secure the win.

Saturday afternoon SISEC was in for a challenge – they were up against the high powered OHA Squad. But not only were they up tough, they had only 4 hours between games; enough time for a quick lunch and prepare for the afternoon match.

The game started off back and forth with both teams having multiple scoring opportunities, but OHA was able to capitalize of a defensive breakdown mid way through the frame to take a 1-0 lead into the first intermission. It appeared OHA wasn’t happy with only leading 1-0, they came out and scored 7 unanswered goals in the second period with the last 5 on the power play, including a 5min CFB man advantage.

The break couldn’t come soon enough for SISEC who were obviously a little tired after just playing a game 4 hours earlier. OHA netted their 8th unanswered goal at 12:05 of the 3rd before SISEC was able to net 2 goals (Rieberger and Mazur) but it wasn’t enough as OHA scored two more of their own to end the game 10-2.

Sunday, Sept 29th. Scheduled early at 7:45am SISEC faced off against DELTA Academy for their final game of the weekend. Delta came out hard and hungry netting 4 goals to SISEC’s 0 after one period, including 2 short handed, taking advantage of a miscommunication breakdown.

With an intermission chat by the coaches, SISEC came out in the second with a little more life, Dekumbis broke the seal for SISEC at 15:07, but Delta was also able to find a way to squeek 3 more past Wik. Besner found a way to muster one past the Delta netminder with 2:12 remaining in the 2nd to being the score to 7-2 after two. SISEC came out in the 3rd looking to make a game of it when Breese and Mazur found the back of the net to bring the score to an acceptable 7-4, but less than 2 minutes later Delta came back with another of their own. And they weren’t done there; Delta scored 3 more unanswered to end the game with a score of 10-4.

SISEC ended the weekend 1-3 and 1-7 on the season - who looks to rebound this weekend with 3 games in the NAMHL on Friday, Oct 4th when they host Fort Mcmurray to open the NAMHL season.

The Selects will again take the ice against Fort McMurray on Saturday before they host SSAC Don Wheaton on Sunday.
