Meanwhile, Okanagan couldn’t have asked for a better trip to Richmond over the weekend, as the Rockets (19-8-2) swept a pair of games from the Northeast Chiefs.

On Saturday at thew Richmond Oval, Lucas Cullen and Hayden Dick scored in a 2-1 Rockets’ win.

On Sunday, Okanagan followed up with a 4-2 victory. Cullen, Dick, Eli Zummack and Danny Gatenby, with his first of the season, scored for the Rockets.

Cole Demers was solid in net for the Rockets in both games, making 49 saves on 52 shots overall.
