Rockets comeback to cool off Steam

The Golden Rockets scored six straight goals against the Summerland Steam in Friday night KIJHL action.



It took over a period for the Golden Rockets to score against the Summerland Steam but when they did the flood gates opened.

The teams combined for 29 shots in the first period but only one goal. Steam forward Dylan Burton scored after a clearing attempt by Rockets goalie Cole Henson was grabbed and quickly shot in the back of the net.

The Steam scored two more quick goals at the start of the second period which put an end to Henson’s night.

The goalie change seemed to spark the Rockets who scored less than a minute after the switch and started their comeback.

Ian Desrosier scored his first goal of the season and then Rockets rookie Josh Jewell brought the team back to within one with just over 15 minutes left in the second.

The Rockets fourth  line continued their strong play as Brett Hanna tied things up and Braeden Allkins put the Rockets out front before the end of the period. The team took control of the game midway through the third period with goals from Blake Roney and a second goal from Hanna which made the final score 6-3.

James Leonard, who came in for Henson in the second period, did not allow any goals against the Steam.

Rockets head coach Ty Davidson was happy with the way the Rockets played against the Steam.

“The first period I didn’t mind. I know we came out down by one but we were not 100 per cent sharp. It was almost like we needed to get down 3-0, I needed to change a goalie and then we woke up. As soon as we woke up you can see the result,” he said. “Anytime you put up 52 shots against an opponent in a 60 minutes game, you are doing something right.”

The Rockets face the Nelson Leafs on Saturday, Nov. 17 at the arena in Golden. The game starts at 7:30 p.m.
