Okanagan Rockets take 2 from Ice

Rockets run BCMML winning streak to four games with two wins over Kootenay

The Okanagan Rockets are working their way back up the B.C. Major Midget League standings after their second straight two-game sweep on home ice.

The Rockets took care of the last-place Kootenay Ice in back-to-back games at CNC to move to 7-4-1 on the season and into a tie for second with Valley West Hawks, just a point back of the first place Giants.

On Saturday, the Rockets rolled to a 10-0 won over the Ice (1-8-3).

Matt Kowalski paced the Rockets attack with four goals.

Alec Zawatsky added a pair, while Myles Matilla scored his first of the season for the home team.

Liam Hughes earned the shutout for the Rockets making 20 saves.

On Sunday, the Ice didn’t go as quietly as the Rockets win 6-4.

Ben Dietrich-Scammell scored twice in a span of 3:54 in the third period as Okanagan overcame an early 2-0 deficit.

Zawatsky scored twice and has nine on the season, while Kowalski, with his team leading 10th, and Zach Ehrhardt rounded out the scoring.

The Rockets go on the road this weekend as they travel to Richmond to take on the Greater Vancouver Canadians on Saturday and Sunday.
