Ok Rockets earn 3 vs Blazers, Cougars up next

After an overtime loss Saturday in Kamloops, the midget Rockets bounce back Sunday

The Okanagan Rockets rebounded from a deflating overtime defeat a day earlier to down the Thompson Blazers 4-1 Sunday in B.C. Major Midget League action at CNC.

Ben Krivoshen scored for the Rockets who pushed their record to 8-8-1-1 on the season. Will Reimer and Tanner Brown also scored for the Rockets, while Ethan Schaeffer added a pair of assists.

On Saturday in Kamloops, the Blazers escaped with a 2-1 victory over the Rockets in overtime. Cole Nisse scored the game winner with just 11 seconds left in the extra period.

Jack Finley gave the Rockets the early lead with a first-period goal, only to watch Thompson come back and tie the game with less than five minutes to play in the third.

The Rockets will head to Prince George this weekend for two games, Saturday and Sunday, against the Cariboo Cougars (14-3-1-0).
