The Ghostriders split the weekend winning 4-3 at home against the Chase Heat on Friday and losing 6-4 in Invermere on Sunday afternoon.
Chase : The Riders had a 3-1 lead going into the third in the Chase game then surrendered a goal making it 3-2 before Justin Peers scored what would end up being the game winner on a great pass from Cole Keebler to make it 4-2. The Heat scored one then had some good chances after that but Jeff Orser shut the door and got the Riders a much needed win.
Zach Befus was the Player of the Game with 2 goals and 2 assists. Justin Peers had a goal and 2 assists, Cole Keebler 3 assists and Alex Cheveldave 1 goal and 1 assists.
In Invermere the Riders got behind 3-1 in the first and never got back on track. They were down 5-2 at the end of the second and despite scoring a couple of goals in the third it was too little too late and they dropped another road game vs Invermere and are now 0-2 against the Rockies. Interesting games against those guys, so far in the two games we have 7 goals and they have 11.
Zach Befus had 2 goals, Alex Cheveldave 1 goal 2 assists Cole Keebler 1 goal 2 assists, Ryan Teslak and Kevin Pierce 1 assist each.
So what happened, it's easy, here are the players who had points last weekend, the list of guys without a point is too long to write.

Zach Befus had 4 goals and 2 assists,
Alex Cheveldave 2 goals and 3 assists
Justin Peers had 1 goal and 2 assists but did not play Sunday.
