Here is a newspaper story on my son's team.

Storm bounces back with first win of early season

Published: September 14, 2010 3:00 PM

After getting blown out in Comox to start the season, the Campbell River Storm bounced back in their home opener last weekend.

The Storm redeemed themselves with a 5-4 win over the Westshore Stingers last Friday at the Rod Brind’Amour Arena, led by Jesse Bachmeier.

One of the team’s top scorers last season, Bachmeier lifted his team to its first victory of the year with a hat trick. The Campbell River native opened the scoring just over 15 minutes in to the game off a feed from Wade Bartlett, one of the Storm’s two 16-year old rookies.

Jordan Suzuki added to Campbell River’s lead at 9:44 after converting a pass from Steven Schmidt, also a Campbell River Minor Hockey product.

Bachmeier added his second on the power play at 7:55 of the first from Suzuki and Schmidt. Quadra Island defenceman Brendan Enns rounded out the first period scoring for the Storm, scoring unassisted with seven minutes left in the frame.

In the second, Bachmeier completed his hat trick, burying a pass from Suzuki at 6:28. And that was all the Storm would need as Westshore, down 5-4, was unable to get the equalizer.

The Storm outshot the Stingers 37 to 23 and boasted all three of the stars of the game — Bachmeier, Suzuki and Schmidt.

Up next for the Storm is a home and home series against the Peninsula Panthers. On Fri., Sept. 17 the Storm will travel to Peninsula then return home on Sun., Sept. 19 to play host to the Panthers.
