The Riders are home here in Fernie Monday night, Round the league and a few other things

The Fernie Ghostriders play game three of their best of seven series
against the Kimberley Dynamiters Monday night here in Fernie.

The series is tied at one game each and game four is Tuesday night right here in Fernie.

Game five will be in Kimberley on Thursday night and it will be live on The Drive 99.1 local radio.

Game six if there is one will be here in Fernie Friday March 3rd and game seven is Saturday in Kimberley.

Game one: Fernie 3 @ Kimberley 8
The game was tied at 2 well into the second period when Kimberley scored four in a row virtually 
ending the game. Nitro Joe Karpyshyn, James Farmer and Matt Davies each had 3 point nights and Cody Campbell had the win in net.
Fernie had goals from Evan Traverse, Devin Nemes and Aidan Wilson (1G1A). Brendan Henderson started but was pulled after the sixth goal. Brandon Youngson finished the game.

Game two : Fernie 4 @ Kimberley 2
The Ghostriders had the lead all game and were up 2-0 after two. Kimberley scored to make it 2-1 but then Justin Peers scored on the PP for a 3-1 lead. Kimberley scored again making it a 3-2 game but Keelan Saworksi ended it with his first goal of the post season in the last minute of the game.

The Riders goals were from  Brendan Nemes (PP) Ty Abbott, Justin Peers (the game winner on the PP) and Keelan Saworski. Alex Cheveldave finished the night with 2 assists and Brendan Henderson was the Riders player of the game after he stopped 31 shots.
Kimberley had goals from Joe Karpyshyn and Franco Colapaolo and Cody Campbell was in net.

No problems in Kimberley in game 1 but when they lost in game 2 a fan was ejected for verbally attacking the referee and  several other fans were yelling and screaming and throwing cups of beer as well.They should change to Bud light or something if it's that bad. 

Round' the League

The KIJHL is keeping quiet on this as is BC Hockey but the WHL has a statement on the Mumps virus that's going around. If you or a teammate get sick get checked for the Mumps, it is serious...

Creston as expected leads Columbia Valley 2-0 - they won 7-2 last night and outshot CVR 53-27 but go to Rockieland Monday.

Beaver Valley also as expected leads Grand Forks 2-0
 after a 7-1 win and a 53-19 shot advantage last night ... they go to GFBB Monday

Castlegar and Nelson are tied 1-1- those pesky Leafs could surprise in Nelson for the next 2.

100 Mile and Kamloops are tied 1-1- the Storm battle back and tie with a 5-2 win and go home to Kamloops Monday.

Chase and Revelstoke are tied 1-1- Chase was first and have now tied it up but go to Revy Monday.

Summerland and Kelowna are tied at 1-1 but Kelowna may have lost their goalie Tanner Marshall after the Steam's Calvin Hadley took a 5 min major for goaltender interference on him and he left the game... there will be lots of fireworks at the KIJHL office over that one, and maybe on the ice as well in Kelowna as the Chiefs are no shrinking violets.

Osoyoos leads North Oakanagan 2-0 after Ryan Roseboom scored the game winner in a 3-2 game last night... but Roseboom who was a KIJHL top scorer with 31G and 25A  took a 5 minute charging penalty in the last 10 minutes so may miss a game or two, more fun for the KI VP's.
