Hot Rockets round up Posse

The Golden Rockets got a home win against the Princeton Posse on Oct. 20.



The Golden Rockets put together a solid all around game on Oct. 20 to beat the Princeton Posse 4-1 on home ice.

The teams combined for 25 shots in the first period but going into the intermission there was no score.

The Rockets jumped out to a 2-0 lead by the halfway mark of the second period on goals from Jacob Bergeron and Matt McMath.

Keith Wake got the lead up to three with a goal just over six minutes into the third. The Posse then got one back with a little over five minutes left in the game and after Marc Lepine took a penalty for slashing they pulled their goalie. The Rockets played solid during the six on four short handed situation and when the penalty ended Lepine knocked in an empty net goal to close out the win.

The Rockets have won six of the teams last nine games and have been playing much better as of late according to head coach Ty Davidson.

“I think we scored on some of opportunities…We are competing every night. We might not always get the results we want but we are competing hard. For me that’s a key thing. If you are playing hard every night then you are giving yourself a chance to win every single night.

The Rockets next home game will be on Friday Oct. 26 against the Creston Valley Thunder Cats.
