The Golden Rockets weathered a tough first period to come back and beat the Creston Valley Thunder Cats 6-4.

The Rockets came strong out of the gate, scoring less than a minute into the game off the stick of Carson George. That was followed by three Thunder Cats’ goals from Jesse Collins, Ty Kronewitt, and Brady Ward.

Brandon Shirley got the Rockets back in the game with a short-handed goal at 3:25 while teammate Michael Anderson was in the box for spearing.

Creston regained their two-goal lead with two seconds left of the clock, putting the score at 4-2 heading into the second.

The Rockets pelted the Cats with shots in the second period, but only slipped one past goaltender Tyler Moffatt on the power play.

The scoring continued for the Rockets in the third, getting goals from Keith Wake, and two from Connor Beauchemin.

The Golden Rockets play a home game tonight (Saturday Dec. 8) against the Grand Forks Border Bruins at 7:30 p.m.
