Ok Rockets melt Ice in MML twin bill
The Kootenay Ice offered no resistance as the Okanagan Rockets blew past their Interior rivals in a weekend set of B.C. Major Midget League games.
The Rockets returned from a week off to drub the Ice in back-to-back meetings at CNC by a combined score of 18-0.
Okanagan has now won five straight on home ice, a stretch which has seen them outscore their opponents 45-10.
On Saturday, Brett Young scored his first two goals of the season to pace the Rockets to a 6-0 whipping of the Ice. Liam Finlay, Tanner Campbell, Tyson Jost and Jake Kryski also scored for the home side which outshot Kootenay 68-13.
Kelowna native Carson Schamerhorn was nothing short of spectacular in goal for the Ice as he made 62 saves.
On Sunday, the Rockets scored six times in the third period en route to a 12-0 win.
Leading the charge Sunday was Campbell who posted his first career hat-trick, while adding two assists for a five-point day. Campbell now has seven goals on the season.
Linden Hora and Jost each score twice while singles went to Branden Wagner, Braeden Hikichi, Kryski, Mark Krabben and Finlay in the lopsided win.
Reid Kilburn recorded his second consecutive shutout of the weekend and improved to 4-1 on the season with a 1.80 goals against average.
The Rockets extended their shutout streak against the Ice to seven full games.
The Rockets (7-1-0) return to action this weekend at CNC with a pair of games against the North Island Silvertips. Game times are 3 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. Sunday.
