RECAP November 9,10.
Okanagan Rockets sailed on to Vancouver Island to take on the North Island Silvertips in their 15th winning (8-1) and tying the 16th (3-3) game of the season.
Game 15 on Saturday the Rockets jumped on a bus at 6:30 am out of Kelowna to catch the 1pm ferry and were on the ice ready to play by 4:45pm in Nanaimo. The Rockets would take game one 8-1 with 8 different goal scorers getting in on the action including one MML first from Porter Trevelyan.
Game 16 started earlier than the Rockets players wanted it to start with a 8am Sunday Morning skating to a 3-3 Tie. It took two periods for the Rockets to turn the engines on and in the third period they outshot the Tips 26-2 but the Tips goaltender stood tall and would not allow the Rockets any more. The Rockets would come back to save one point in the final 2 min of the game on a nice move and shot from Wightman.
The Rockets are now on their first bye week of the season and then get set for a home and home vs Okanagan rival Thompson Blazers on Nov 23 at Capital News Centre and in Kamloops November 24.
