Brady McIsaac had a hat trick for the Cariboo Cougars in a 7-3 win against the Greater Vancouver Canadians on Sunday at Kin 2. The victory was the sixth consecutive for the Cats, who skate in the B.C. Hockey Minor Midget League.
The Cougars were up 1-0 after Sunday’s first period, the goal by Benjamin Sullivan. McIsaac notched his first of the game just 34 seconds into the middle frame while his team was on a power play. That started a barrage of goals in the period as the Cats went on to outscore the Canadians 5-2 in those 20 minutes. Caleb Poitras, Dawson Davis, Scott Cousins and McIsaac (on a power play) added to the Cariboo total while Lukas Tokic and Timothy Kim responded for the visitors. Kim’s goal was a power-play marker.
McIsaac completed his hat trick early in the third period and Aidan Zachary Teixeira answered for the Canadians in the final five minutes of the game. Things got rough with 5:53 left on the clock and, as a result, the teams were assessed three misconducts each. Tokic took another misconduct seconds later.
The Cougars outshot the Canadians 32-26.
Jasper Tait was the winning goaltender and Dylan Lowe took the loss.
The Cougars beat the Canadians 6-3 on Saturday.
The Cats elevated their record to 6-2-0-0 and the Canadians fell to 2-8-0-0.
The Cougars will be in Richmond next weekend for games against the Valley West Giants.
