One win, one overtime loss for Rockies last weekend

Next home games this Friday and Saturday at the Eddie

The Columbia Valley Rockies played two back-to-back away games last weekend, with a close game Friday, and a resounding victory Saturday.

Friday, November 1st, the Rockies met the Spokane Braves. The Braves came in strong with two goals. But with only 1:31 left on the clock in first period, Rockies’ Nikolas Scheiwiller, with assists from Jonathan Milligan and Gareth Nicholas, answered back. Braves dropped another in the net, ending an exciting first period.

Second period saw Rockies’ Nikolas Scheiwiller (assisted by Colby Phillips and Caileb Berge) put the only score on the board. Then in the third period, Rockies’ Khale Skinner, with assists from Brennan Nelson and Gareth Nicholas, tied up the scoreboard with 8:11 left on the clock. The Rockies aimed to tip the score in their favour, but Braves got the final goal of the night in overtime, finishing the game 4-3 for Spokane.

Saturday, November 2nd, the Rockies trailed in first and second period, with the Creston Valley Thunder Cats sitting at 1-0. In the third period, the switch turned and the Rockies ramped up their game, dropping five goals to answer the Cats’ one. Caileb Berge and Nikolas Scheiwiller both netted two, and Khale Skinner added one to the total, bringing the final score to a proud 5-1 for the Rockies.

This Friday, November 8th and Saturday, November 9th, come cheer on the Rockies at the Eddie Mountain Memorial Arena as they take on the Fernie Ghostriders and the Summerland Steam. Games start at 7:30 p.m.
