Tayler Sincennes scored 3 goals and added an assist while Ryan Kennedy chipped in with a goal and 2 assists. Brandon Butler stopped 17 for the shutout. Rocket star goalie Owen Sikkes was Sikked out of the net at the end of the second so the Riders scored two on Grobowsky.
The boys made some great passes on a few of the goals Sincennes, Lagace, Siebel, come to mind in that department. They also kept to their game plan and helped Butler get his shutout, unlike in the Castlegar game a few weeks ago.
The frustrated Rocket's Ethan Brock hit Evan Traverse from behind in the third that saw Nolan Lagace,Trevor Broad and Kevin Pierce all get charged with fighting although most of it was wrestling. That will mean Broad and Pierce along with 2 Rockets and both coaches will get suspended ...if the fights were listed in the correct order, or if the referee changes his mind on a couple of the fights and they end up as ruffing calls.
After that Rocket Carter Vouri got his 36th PIM but got away with out what would have been his second suspension when he elbowed Derek Green in the head, and was only given 2 minutes instead of 5 prompting a few words to Rocket coach Jason Stephens about controlling his players from the Riders bench.
We will see later today what the suspensions will be but the KIJHL doesn't show the coach suspensions for some reason (the backlash ?) anyway here is the game sheet , but it could get changed and possibly they will just suspend one coach... but I doubt it.
With the shutout, his second in a row vs Golden
