“We came out of the cage firing and played a really good two periods, had a pretty solid third,” said Wade Dubielewicz, Columbia Valley Rockies coach, “but they’re (Fernie) a good team so they’re going to push back and they’re going to have opportunities.”

During the first period, Rockies player Harrison Davies scored a goal with an assist from Luke Bellerose with 10:45 left.

The Fernie Ghostriders tied the game 1-1 with a goal at 8:21.

During the third, Rockies player Cardinal scored a goal without an assist.

“I’m ecstatic,” said Mr. Dubielewicz. “We worked so hard without any results (at first), and now we’re starting to see results, which is nice to see.”

The Columbia Valley Rockies scored two goals in the second period, both by Kellen Marchand.

“I thought Kellen Marchand was incredible,” said Mr. Dubielewicz. “He played like a man.”
