Cariboo Cougars vs. Thompson Blazers

Game 1: Cariboo 4, Thompson 2

Game 2: Cariboo 8, Thompson 2

 

The Blazers jumped right back into the action after their bye week, facing off against the first-place Cougars.

 

Trent Thompson opened the scoring for the Blazers, giving them a 1-0 lead heading into the second period. Brendan Malgunas tied things up just 45 seconds into the second period, but the Blazers regained the lead off a power play goal from Aleksandre Erichuk.

 

That would be the last goal of the day for Thompson, as the Cougars notched three (3) third period goals (Mason Richey, Jesse Pomeroy, Daine Dubois) to get the 4-2 win. In Game 2, Thompson kept things close through a scoreless first period, but the Cougars’ offense exploded in the second, tallying six (6) goals from Dubois (2), Malgunas, Darian Long, Hunter Floris, and Ty Kolle. Reid Perepeluk and Malgunas scored in the third to bring the Cougars’ total to eight (8) goals.

 

Erichuk and Tyson Gayfer scored for the Blazers.

 

North Island Silvertips vs. Okanagan Rockets

Game 1: Okanagan 5, North Island 1

Game 2: Okanagan 3, North Island 2

 

The Rockets picked up a couple of wins in Nanaimo to stay in the hunt for a top two (2) spot in the standings.

 

The Rockets got on the board first with a power play goal late in the opening period from Max Kryski. Kryski would score again on a short-handed effort just 40 seconds into the second period to give Okanagan a 2-0 lead. Joshua Zary cut into the Rockets’ lead with a power play goal at the 5:59 mark of the second period, but that’s as close as the Silvertips would get as Okanagan scored three (3) third period goals (Coleton Bilodeau, Seth Barton, Jeffrey Karpowich). Statistics were unavailable for Game 2 at the time of publishing.

From the second period on it was all Thunderbirds, with Justin Plett (2), Justin Hargrave, and Brodi Stuart finding the back of the net in the win.
