The Golden Rockets had a tough start to the playoffs with a 6-1 loss to the Fernie Ghostriders on Friday Feb. 24.

The Ghostriders strengthened their lead in the second period with goals from Connor McLaughlin and Stefan Seel, putting them up by three after 40 minutes.

The third period didn’t get any better for Golden. Fernie scored three strait before the Rockets got their first and only goal of the night from Carson George.

A fight in the third period got Golden’s Bryden Marsh and Fernie’s Brendon Mangone tossed from the game.
