Ghostriders get a 4-2 home ice win against Golden
The Ghostriders got a much needed 4-2 win last night against a floundering Golden Rocket team who are on a 21 game losing streak, in other words they haven't won a game yet.
So the Rockets who are desperate for their first win must have watched and learned from Columbia Valley last Saturday when they knocked Rider top scorer Cole Keebler out of the game with a two handed slash to the leg, that, although wasn't called, required an X-ray to make sure the bone wasn't broken. And the Rockies won as well.
With that in mind, in the second the Rockets got Alex Cheveldave into a fight (Travis Kelly got the instigator) then Zach Befus fought the sticky Sean Ripley. Meaning the Riders were with out their three top scorers. Much more honourable than slashing though. Anyway, it didn't matter the Riders secondary scorers were still able to out gun Golden. Titus 2 G Kennedy the GW Reid 1 G. See the game scoring below.
Also and probably more importantly, Brandon Butler got his first win in net this season after coming back from a long term injury.
In other Rider news, Nolan Legacy had 2 assists in his first game as a Ghostrider after coming to Fernie all the way from Fort St John yesterday AM . He was a point a game player with the Jr B Huskies and was playing with former Rider Will Lightfoot (95) who has 5 points in 9 games so far in FSJ.
Kevin Pierce returned from Pentiction where he played a game with the Vees last Saturday . The Vees won and it was their 19th in a row.
Vees HC and GM Fred Harbinson (Fernie HC and GM 98-2000) said "Kevin had a positive week with us, very calm with the puck which allows him to find the outlet coming out of his end, he has good offensive instincts."
Missing in action last night, Ben Sushlovsky, Travis Thomsen, Spencer Bender, Justin Peers, Cole Keebler, Aidan Wilson, Tayler Sincennes, and Mack Differenz.
