It was another weekend of tough losses for the Columbia Valley Rockies where the team was in both games but could not pull out a win.

In a Friday night tilt the Rockies faced off against the Creston Valley Thunder Cats at the Eddie Mountain Memorial Arena in Invermere.

Things did not pick up in the game until half-way through the third period.

After a fight involving Michael Keyes of the Rockies the team seemed to finally start playing their style of game.

After a high-sticking penalty was called against the Thunder Cats the Rockies’ Tye Moses gave the team a chance to win with a goal.

The Rockies then traded goals with the Thunder Cats to make the score 3-2 with just under two minutes left in the game.

The Rockies’ pulled their goalie for an extra attacker and swarmed the Thunder Cats net but could not get a goal to knot things up.

In the second game of the weekend the Rockies went on the road to Kimberley to play the Dynamiters.

The Rockies’ came out flat in the first period that saw Rockies’ goalie Tyler Stamler face 17 shots, in the first period.

Stamler only gave up one goal in the first but could not keep up the strong play letting in three goals on six shots in the second.

The Rockies’ controlled play in the last two periods out- shooting the Dynamiters 24-10 over the forty minute stretch but in the end they lost 4-2.

One of the big issues on the night was the inability of the Rockies to get the power play working.

The team went zero for eight on the night and were once again burned by former Rockies player Darrell Boldon who had a goal and anassist on the night.

The Rockies have three home games left in the season.

On February 4 the Golden Rockets come to Invermere, on February 8 the Fernie Ghostriders visit and the final home game of the year will see the Rockies face off against the Grand forks Border Bruins on February 12.
