Rockies joust the Knights

Two back-to-back home games this weekend for the Rockies

The last time the Rockies met the Ghostriders, it was on home ice with the Rockies earning a resounding win. So they entered the rink ready to face down the ’riders again, this time on Fernie’s home turf. It was an exciting, high-scoring game for the KIJHL rivals.

Fernie came prepared, netting the first goal two and a half minutes into the first period. Rockies’ Palmer Sinclair answered back a minute later, tying the scoreboard one-all. Fernie threw two more in the net, and Rockies’ Tristan Lambert wrapped up the first with another goal for the Columbia Valley.

The second period saw Gavin Fleck and Palmer Sinclair add two more goals for the Rockies, with the Ghostriders adding another three to their tally. Halfway through the third, Fleck snuck one more past the Ghostriders’ goalie, ending the game 5-6 for Fernie.

Saturday, November 16th, the Rockies faced the North Okanagan Knights at the Eddie Mountain Memorial Arena. Both teams scored in the first period – the Rockies’ by Caileb Berge – tied up the teams. Entering the second period strong, Hunter Beckett slammed another puck into the Knight’s net, but was quickly tied up again by the Knights, who then took the lead with another goal. Tristan Lambert took charge to bring another goal on the scoreboard for the Rockies in the third, ending the third 3-all. Overtime period had the crowd on the edge of their seats as the clock ticked down and no winning goals shot. Finally, with only 3:30 left on the clock, the Rockies’ Jonathan Milligan raised the barn roof with the winning goal.

Catch a double-bill of the Rockies at home this weekend, as they face the Creston Valley Thunder Cats Friday, November 22nd followed by the Beaver Valley Nitehawks Saturday, November 23rd.
