Bruins growl and Dynamiters explode against Rockies

Next home games this Friday and Saturday for Rockies

The hometown crowd was treated to a fast-paced feud Friday, November 29th between the Columbia Valley Rockies and the Grand Forks Border Bruins.

The game started strong for the Rockies, with star forward Palmer Sinclair scoring a mere one minute into the first period, with assists by Tristan Lambert and Khale Skinner. But that goal brought out the fight in the Bruins, who quickly tossed two of their own goals on the board in 60 second intervals.

The Rockies’ Brennan Nelson snuck one more goal in the second period, assisted by Zachery Dovichak. But the Bruins pulled their claws out, striking two more goals. The Rockies didn’t give up without a fight; only 37 seconds left on the final clock, Tristan Lambert, assisted by Khale Skinner, netted one more goal, ending the night 4-3 for the visitors.

Saturday, November 30th, the Rockies took the road to Kimberley where they met the Dynamiters. The Rockies exploded in the first period with three unanswered goals made by Gavin Fleck, Brennan Nelson and Khale Skinner.

The Dynamiters pulled theirs socks up between first and second, as they threw two past the Rockies’ goalie in the second, followed by another three in the third, ending the game 5-3 for the Dynamiters.

Don’t miss the Rockies in a back-to-back home weekend at the Eddie, meeting the Castlegar Rebels Friday, December 6th at 7:30 p.m., and the Nelson Leafs Saturday, December 7th at 7 p.m.
