Last night in Kimberley it was the Nitros vs the Rockets in a battle for third place and a date with the Creston Thundercats. The Nitros out shot Golden 32-18 and won the game 5-2. The Rockets however won’t be in trouble when they get home, their mothers always said not to play on the road… The Rockets and their coach love this blog… Anyway it looks like the first game is in Fernie on Wednesday night then again on Saturday because of the Fernie Figure Skating Club’s Yearly (well attended- I might add) Carnival.
Creston will now host the Nitros, –Neslon, Beaver Valley,– Castlegar, Spokane–Sicamous,Pentiction and Chase, Kamloops. Revelstoke and Princeton get a buy in the first round.
