Rockies gain momentum

Weekend win against the Golden Rockets with a 9-2 victory

The Rockies hit the ice this past weekend for their 20th game of the season at the Eddie Mountain Memorial Arena Saturday, November 11th against the Golden Rockets, following Friday’s 5-4 loss in double overtime against the Fernie Ghostriders at the Elk Valley Leisure Centre.

After Friday’s game, the Rockies nailed it Saturday, with a 9-2 win against the Rockets, despite an injury to their goalie in the bottom of the first period. Comment on the extent of the injuries to the player and how he is doing were unavailable as of press time this week.

The Rockies continued on at Saturday’s game despite an upsetting start demonstrating real grit and prowess on the ice.

The team showed through their win against the Rockets that the tide is turning in their favour this season.

They’ve hit their mark consistently over the past couple of weekends and with a solid defense, speed, attention to detail and hard work the odds seem to be stacked in their favour moving forward.

With seven wins, eight losses, and three ties, it seems the team is evening the score as they head into their 21st game against Fernie on Friday.

The Rockies have demonstrated skill and a level of confidence that has followed what has been a set of strategy building sessions geared toward making quick decisions under pressure that have paid off.

Head coach Wade Dubliewicz has been instrumental in helping his players get up to speed for the rest of the season by the tools he’s been harnessing in practice and it shows.

By helping his team develop mental toughness, speed, agility and the ability to step up under pressure, Mr. Dubliewicz is helping his players to build a momentum that will hopefully keep them on the upward trend as the season progresses.
