Rockies recap

Update as Rockies go into their 17th game of the season

The Columbia Valley Rockies hit the ice full force this past weekend during consecutive away games on Friday, October 27th against the Spokane Braves and Saturday, October 28th against Grand Forks Border Bruins at the Jack Goddard Memorial Arena.

With Saturday holding the title of the 16th game in the season, the Rockies showed up, taking the Bruins 4-2.

The Rockies have had a mix of victories and defeats this season so far with seven losses, four wins, three ties and two overtime losses.

The team is currently working on strengthening its defence strategies and toughening their mental and physical acuity on the ice, according to Rockies captain Cooper Krauss, and head coach Wade Dubliewicz.

Competing harder, winning more, and working on the little things are important to the team as they move forward this season.

The Rockies have proven that they can come back from losses, slow games, and turn it around as they demonstrated at Saturday’s game.

It’s a pattern that the Rockies seem to be rolling with this season and consistency will be a key factor in obtaining more wins for the team.

Work ethic, speed, attention to detail and defence are elements that the Rockies have brought to their games and even after some disappointing weekends, it’s evident that going back to the drawing board and making adjustments in practices are working.

The next home game for the Rockies is Friday, November 3rd against the Castelgar Rebels. For more Rockies information, check out www.rockieshockey.ca.
