Hockey night in Golden ended in an exciting tie game against the Grand Forks Border Bruins on Friday night.

The Golden Rockets were down two points at the end of the first period, and were getting fired up from being shutout in a 2-0 score before the beginning of the second.

Not long into the second period, Bryce Trimmer scored the first goal for the Rockets with an assist from Jaden Callan, and it didn’t stop there. Shortly after, Egan was hit from behind, and the Bruins were given a two minute penalty.

Callan scored the second goal, with an assist from Jacob Bennett, and Rockets continued to bring their high-octane play onto the ice to score a third goal by Jayden Hendricks from Callan and Trimmer. Before the end of the second period, the Bruins were able to get another two goals on the Rockets, leaving the score at 4-3 going into the third. Before the period ended, Cruz was hit by one of the Bruins, and they were given a five-minute major penalty for the hit.

The Rockets continued to push harder against the Bruins, with Ferraro scoring the fourth goal of the night from Brett Benson. The Bruins scored two more goals on the Rockets, but Turner brought it back up, scoring the fifth goal with an assist from Trimmer. Turner scored the sixth and final goal of the night, tying up the game 6-6.
