Rockets defenceman Michael Anderson lays a solid body check against a forward from the Creston Valley Thunder Cats.

No Christmas miracle for Cats against Golden Rockets

The golden Rockets beat the Creston Valley Thunder Cats 6-1 at home.

The Golden Rockets put on a show for the home fans in the team’s last home game before Christmas when they laid a 6-1 drubbing on the Creston Valley Thunder Cats.

The Rockets top line took control of the game in the first period when Connor Beauchemin scored a natural hat trick. Line mate Blake Roney assisted on all three of the first period tallies.

The Cats got their only goal of the night on a second period marker from Matthew Murray.

The Rockets got they fourth goal of the night when Felix Larouche scored early in the third period.

Before the end of the game Roney netted his 14th of the year to give the Rockets a 5-1 lead. The scoring ended late in the third as Jacob Bergeron showed quick hands when a missed shot came off the end boards and landed right on his stick. Bergeron popped the shot in the back of the net to finish off a dominating performance.

Head coach of the Rockets, Ty Davidson, was extremely satisfied with the performance of the team.

“As a coaching staff we really stressed this week we were not going to go on Christmas vacation early. It is a tendency for kids that are this age who have been away from home for the first time to look too far ahead,” he said. “Sometimes their body is here but their mind is not. I think we showed that tonight, we did not go home early. We sputtered a little bit in the second but we put together a really good first and third, and overall it was a very good effort from the goalie on out.”
