Saturday’s Game

The Riders have played Golden twice this year, the first time they played was September 26, the Riders lost 5-4, the Ghostriders won mid October 4-3 in a shootout. Golden won both their games last weekend, 4-2 over Grand Forks Saturday and 6-5 Friday in Invermere where the fans saw the teams fire 106 shots at each other and score 11 goals before the Rockets finally won in overtime. How lucky were those fans…The Rockets top scorer is Josh MacDonald with 24 points… Former Princeton warrior Cody Southerland lead the league in penalties last year with over 500 and already has 130 this year with Golden…. Zach Baba also had hours of penalty box time last year and will likely challenge the South for the PIM Crown and a stack of comics once again this season.

Odds and ends

-Left-Karl Weberg– After winning both games in net last week Tory Caldwell had a 7-1 record a 93 save % and was in second place for goalies in the KIKJHL ….#15 Dave McIvor had 2 goals and 4 assists last week and after 13 games is averaging a goal a game and leads the team with 25 points. ….Meanwhile, The Karl Weberg watch continued again last week and # 22 didn’t disappoint, he scored 2 goals and added 2 assists and now has 16 points in only 7 games…. Scott Anderson returned to the lineup in Invermere last Saturday and was named first star and had 2 assists…. Speedy forward Travis Harrad made the hit of the year last Friday, the refs called a penalty but every fan in the building knew it was clean…The referees were flexing their muscles again the next night in Invermere and this time Rider Captain Scott Traverse was nailed with a gross misconduct and will miss 3 games…. Gilbert Bilodeau scored his first goal in Invermere….The KIJHL has penalized the Beaver Valley Nitehawks for playing an in-eligible player in their games of Oct.3, 4, 10 and 11. The result is a default of those four games and the loss of the eight points earned in those games. This decision was reached by the Discipline Committee as it pertains to Regulation 26 of the league constitution. All player stats for the teams involved remain unchanged
