Jolly Miller tops at weekend tourney

Jolly Miller doubled up K&L 6-3 in the championship game of the Jolly Miller Pub Money hockey tournament Sunday afternoon at Prospera Centre, earning themselves $700 in the process.

After battling through the round-robin stage with a 2-0-1 record, Jolly Miller kicked their championship run into high gear with an impressive 11-3 semi-final win over the 67’s.

Jolly Miller stormed out to a 9-2 first-period lead led by Wyatt Tunnicliffe’s hat trick and coasted to the win.

On the other side, Jeremy Reid’s goal with 6:37 left in the third period stood up as the winner as K&L edged a scrappy Lillooet squad 5-3.

Jolly Miller jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the championship game, but Reid cut the advantage in half before the end of the first period.

Reid’s second of the game knotted the game at 2-2 early in the third period, but Jolly Miller’s offence exploded for three unanswered goals late in the game to ice the victory.

K&L did not go away empty handed, collecting $300 for their second-place effort.

The team also earned an individual honour, with Paul Allanson collected the tournament’s most valuable goaltender award.

The most valuable player award went to Jolly Miller’s Tyler Alkins who collected eight goals and 13 points over the weekend while playing solid defence.

Regular-season action for the JMRHL resumes tonight at 9:30 p.m. at Twin Rinks Red with the Oilers facing the Ice Holes. The 67’s take on the Queens Thursday night at 8:45 p.m. at Twin Rinks Blue.
