Hometown Rockets earn two wins and a tie in BCMML action

With three games to play in a span of just 40 hours, the Okanagan Rockets were facing one of their toughest challenges of the B.C. Major Midget League season.

In the end, the Kelowna-based squad passed the test with flying colours, earning five of a possible six points on home ice.

On Friday night at CNC, in a make-up game from earlier in the season, the Rockets downed the South Island Royals 4-0.

Cole Demers stopped all 22 shots for his fourth shutout of the season.

Danny Gatenby, Ben Dietrich-Scammel, Jordan Todd and Powell Connor tallied for the Rockets who fired 54 shots at the Royals net.

On Saturday afternoon, Demers duplicated his handiwork with 31 saves for this fifth shutout of the season in a 4-0 win over the Greater Vancouver Canadians.

Seth Barton, Lucas Cullen, Alec Zawatsky and Cody Schiavon supplied the goals for the home side.

On Sunday morning, the Canadians scored with just 2:08 left to earn a 3-3 tie with the Rockets.

Hayden Dick scored twice for the Rockets, while Courtney notched his first BCMML goal.

Demers was once again solid in goal, making 41 saves.

Next weekend, the Rockets (22-8-2) will visit the league-leading Valley West Hawks. The teams will play Saturday in Delta and Sunday in Langley.
