Rockets losing streak hits three after 7-2 loss to Fernie

The Ghostriders punished the Rockets on Halloween night with a dominant 54 shot effort against Golden and netminder Magnus Viberg.

The Fernie Ghostriders fired 54 shots on Rockets netminder Magnus Viberg while Golden was only able to beat Fernie goalie Jeff Orser twice as the Riders cruised to a 7-2 victory Friday night.

Tayler Sincennes and Derek Georgopolous opened the scoring for Fernie less than seven minutes into the opening period with a pair of goals across 47 second of game time.

Ian Desrosier, who continues to lead the team in goals, scored his 13th of the season to cut the Riders’ lead in half soon after, but Fernie added a pair to end the first including a backbreaking goal by Sam Plaquin with just a second left before the siren.

The Rockets once again nudged closer when Brennan Fuoco scored on the power play just over four minutes into the second period. However, Fernie responded with a pair of goals just 46 seconds apart to leave themselves sitting comfortably ahead by a 6-2 score after 40 minutes.

Josh McCulloch completed the scoring for the home team, and the Rockets were sent packing with little to show for their efforts.

Golden will now make the short trip west to Kimberley for a matchup with the Dynamiters tonight. They’ll be looking to snap a three-game losing streak that’s seen the club get outscored by a 21-7 margin.
