The Ghostriders lost 6-3 in Golden last night and find themselves down 3 games to 1 in the series. Connor Beauchemin with a goal and an assist was the first star, he and has been averaging a point a game. Michael Anderson was the second star with a goal and an assist, they were his first points in the series and were big ones helping the Rockets get a stranglehold on the series. Keith Wake was the third star. Wake also had a goal and an assist and had 5 points in the last two games and 6 in the 4 games. Meanwhile James Leonard has gone the distance in net for the Rockets.
For the Ghostriders Tyler Gonzales had a goal and an assist and 5 points in the series. Derek Chudyk chipped in with his second of the series and Braeden Monk scored the third goal, just his first point of the series. Chris Solecki has played all of the games in net for the Riders. Josh Kluck, Jeff Rayman, Dylan Rota, and Simon Horlick were all out with injuries. The radio said Gonzales hit a player from behind late in the game and got a game misconduct…. however the game summary says it was interference so he can play Monday.
The Ghostriders played very well at home and although they lost one of the games they were clearly the better team. That was not the case on the road with 7-3 and 6-3 losses, both game they were out shot as well but you have to win 4 so the Ghostriders get another kick at the cat on Monday here in Fernie… do or dive in game five..at the Memorial Area. Be there!!
