For the second game in a row, the Raiders have dominated the Shamrocks in the goal department, coming up with an 11 to 7 victory in Armstrong’s Hassan Arena. Kelowna took the lead late in the first period and Armstrong was unable to recover. Goaltender Ryan Brabander held back the Armstrong shooters all evening, stopping 39 shots. His strong defensive team helped shut down the Shamrocks skilled forwards, and picked up loose balls to create many scoring opportunities. Case in point was defender Victor Wiens who repeatedly intercepted many Armstrong passes and converted them to goals, with Wiens potting a hat-trick.
Scoring for Kelowna were Vic Wiens with 3, Braden Renner and Pho Heng each with 2. Kyle MacLennan, Joe Brown, Jordan Innes, and Taylor Trotter each had singles in the victory. Armstrong’s goals came from Jared Medhurst with 3 and singles from Brennan Plante, Braydon Sanders, Jamie Cockerill and Steve Clarke.No comments
