October 9, 2013, NANAIMO BC (ISN) – It seems to be a routine that the North Island Silvertips split the weekend as it has happened again with the Vancouver North East Chiefs.

On Saturday evening the Tips’ would get boost of energy to defeat the Chiefs 5-3, giving the Chiefs their first regulation loss.

Tyler Madden, Nik Malenica, Joe Gage, Hunter Findlater, Trent Bell and Bo Lewis all added a goal in the win, while John Hawthrone stood on his head.

On Sunday morning it would have seemed like a different team stepped on the ice for the Chiefs as they exploded in the game scoring six goals while the Tips’ would be kept scoreless as Jakob Severson would stop everything he faced.

The Tips’ are now 3-3 on the season and have the Kootenay Ice in town next weekend; first game on Saturday Oct. 12th at 5:15PM followed by a 10:30AM start on the 13th.
