December Game of the Month

Posted in Featured, Game Of The Month


The first of two December Games of the Month presented by Intersync Video Productions will feature the Okanagan Rockets host the Valley West Hawks in the BC Major Midget League (BCMML) on Saturday afternoon.

The Rockets are having an unbelievable season sitting atop the BCMML standings at 18-3-1, six points up on the Hawks, 15-6-1.

Tyson Jost has been a tremendous weapon thus far for the Rockets with 38 points in 18 games, leading the BCMML with 19 goals.  Tanner Campbell has also contributed with 13 goals and 32 points this season, third most.

As much fire power as the Rockets have, their defense and goaltending has been stellar.  They’ve allowed just 53 goals, compared to scoring 126 goals.

Goaltender Reid Kilburn has a league best 10 wins and a 2.00 goals against average.

With all the great stats the Rockets possess and their 11-0-0 home record, this weekend will be a tough task with the Hawks in town.

Matt Bradley has been the best Hawk offensively this season.  In 19 games he has 31 points and leads the club with 15 goals.  Jordan Funk has been solid with 26 points, while Mitch Newsome has chipped in with 11 goals.

The Hawks have platooned their goalies almost to perfection.  Kyle Cheema is 8-2 with a 3.15 goals against and Cole Forbes sits 7-3-1 with a 2.94.

The two clubs met in Langley on September 28-29, each team recording a victory.  The Rockets scored a 5-4 win in game one, while the Hawks came back the next morning, doubling the Rockets 4-2.

Saturday afternoon the Rockets and Hawks face-off at 3:00pm, live from the CNC and fans can watch as the game is featured in the Game of the Month series.  Ryan will have the call with Alex Draper from Shutout Sports.
