Ghostrider Jan 3rd update

The Ghostriders play the Creston Thunder Cats Saturday night in Sparwood. Creston is in second place in the division,10 points behind Kimberley but 10 ahead of Columbia Valley. Creston has won four of five of the eight games these two teams will play each other this year.

The Riders are in Golden this Friday night and it is not a scheduled radio broadcast game.

Ghostrider Notebook

Kevin Pierce, who was born in Mexico, is away for a few weeks playing with Team Mexico in a tournament in Slovenia. How fun would that be playin across the ocean.

Injuries continue to take their toll on the team. Devyn Stuart, Shaun Pierce, Zak Larson, Brendan Nemes and Greg Susinski are all  unlikely for this weekend. Jordan Kromm is also out after an (as usual uncalled) cheap shot from Kimberley’s Harrison Risdon last Saturday. Come on guys get the majors, we know you had to be lookin at it.

 Ghostrider GM Craig Mohr has  added two forwards to the roster, Dylan Defrosse from Victoria and Jason Lane from Revelstoke. Then he released  Ben Kemp so they are now at 23 and if nothing changes (Mohr still has 2 cards left) this will be the team after the January 10th 23 man deadline.

Congratulations to #21 Ethan Jang for making the KIJHL’s Top Prospect’s team. 
Jang is a 16 year old in his first year of junior and he is from Rossland BC. Ethan’s brother Karsten
plays for the Beaver Valley Nite Hawks.

The Ghostriders are in Kimberley next Tuesday Jan 9th, and it is a radio broadcast game with Josh Hoffman at the mike.

We hear Nitro HC and GM Derek Stuart was crying to the league about security at the Sparwood arena after the last game... cause nothin never happens in Kimberley... I loved the garbage cans on the ice though...oh whatever.

There are no KIJHL games scheduled for next weekend because of the Top Prospects game in Kelowna.
The week after next the Ghostriders play two games in Spokane . 

One of the Spokane games was originally scheduled as a Fernie home game but with the arena disaster they had to cut a deal with Spokane to play the game there. There is no more ice available here anyway. 

Those Spokane games are Jan 18 and 19 then the boys play in Castlegar (who are currently on a 14 game win streak and tied for first with Kimbo 52pts) on the Saturday. A tough weekend for sure.

The Ghostriders next home game is January 26th against Columbia Valley. But before that they play in Invermere on Jan 23rd, that is yet another rescheduled game from October.
