the Columbia Valley Rockies won 6-1 against the Golden Rockets at the Golden Arena on Saturday, November 21st.

Despite reservations expressed by Rockies head coach Wade Dubielewicz after their win against Golden on home ice the night before, the Columbia Valley Rockies won 6-1 against the Golden Rockets at the Golden Arena on Saturday, November 21st.

Rockies players Micheal Cardinal, Nigel Swab and Nolan Menard scored three goals during the first period, ramping up the Junior B team’s spirit for their impending victory.

During the second, Golden Rockets athlete Mathew Thiessen gave his team some hope by scoring their first — and, as it turned out, only — goal of the game.

Rockies players Davin Burton, Nick Hoobanoff and Harrison Davies scored another three goals in the third, which ultimately helped the team win the game.

The Rockies’ next games are both in Invermere at the Eddie Mountain Memorial Arena.

They play Kimberley on Friday, November 27th at 7:30 p.m. and Nelson on Saturday, November 28th, also at 7:30 p.m.
