The North Okanagan Tim Hortons Legends played their first home game at Nor-Val, hosting the Kelowna Kodiaks.

After giving up five goals in the first period to put themselves in a tough situation, the team battled back in the third period with four goals but it wasn’t quite enough as they fell short by a 7-5 score. The team is now 0-2-1 to start the season but the coaching staff remains positive that the team will turn things around.

“We’re starting to get things going…the boys are working hard,” said head coach Ryan Williamson.

The Legends were led by a strong performance in net by Tyler Martin, who also got on the score sheet by adding an assist on the first goal of the game by Colten Colmorgen, who had two goals and one assist. First-year players Aidan Wattie and Heatly Jeffers each had a goal. Tegan Evans added the fifth goal.

The coaching staff, players, and parents would like to thank Tim Hortons for their sponsorship.
