Armstrong Sr. Shamrocks 12, Kelowna Raiders 10 (Fri May 26, Nor-Val Arena)
The Kelowna Raiders could not contain Sr. A rated player Brett Hawrey’s in the third period to succumb to the Shamrocks after keeping the game tied midway into the third period. All evening Kelowna’s goalie Tanner Belsham shut down Armstrong’s big shooters with a solid performance backed up by a great defence. Between Hawrey’s 5 goal performance and teammate Kyle Versteeg’s 4 goal display, the pair accounted for 9 of the 12 goals scored. Other markers came from Milan Marcetta with 2 and a single from Cam Nelson. For the Raiders it was a stellar performance from Ryan Lindstrom with a hat trick, captain Jacob Illichmann with a pair and singles from Joe Brown, Kyle Scott, Nick Evans, Mitch Brodt and Junior call-up Dakota Grisner. The two teams battle it out again this coming week, June 2 at Kelowna Memorial Arena.
