Nitehawks no match for rolling Rockets

The Golden Rockets are on a three game winning streak after defeating the Beaver Valley Nitehawks.



For the second week in a row the Golden Rockets came from behind to notch a win on home ice.

The Rockets were facing the Beaver Valley Nitehawks who are currently third in the Neil Murdoch Division of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League.

The Nitehawks jumped out to an early lead on a goal from Connor Brown-Maloski. The goal was the highlight of the night for the Nitehawks as the Rockets stepped up and took control of the game from that point on.

Before the end of the first period, Rockets forward Blake Roney would score his 10 goal of the season to tie the game up. Roney netted number 11 a little over six minutes into the second before Jacob Bergeron gave the Rockets a two goal lead going into the final period.

The Rockets top line were in the mix again in the third which lead to Keith Wake grabbing a rebound goal. With a little less than five minutes left in the game the Rockets finished off the scoring as Carter Cochrane scored his first goal of the season on a shot from the point.

Rockets head coach Ty Davidson said the team played a good game and worked hard as a group to come back.

“It speaks nicely to the way we are regrouping after not the start we want. It is showing a lot of composure where the wheels don’t fall off. We are able to regroup as a unit and get going in the right direction,” he said. “I think tonight in the first ten minutes we were flat but good teams know how to weather that situation and then right the ship and get going in the right direction.
