Atom B SilverBacks claim win over Rockets

The 'Backs earned a decisive 4-2 win over Kelowna in league play Saturday.

Abundant Specialty Advertising Salmon Arm SilverBacks Atom B Development team hosted a league game against the Kelowna Rockets on Saturday.

The ’Backs came out with all cylinders firing and for the first time in their three-game matchups this season, the ’Backs took the lead with a great goal by Austen York.

The Rockets responded with a quick rebound goal, the only one that got past outstanding goaltending by ‘Hot Rod’ May, net keeper for the first half of the game. The boys continued to fight hard in a very physical game.

A single-handed goal by Mason Balon in the second period allowed the ’Backs to once again take the lead. The third period proved to be the most intense yet, as both teams battled to take the win.

A goal by the Rockets tied the game again, but not for long, as Lukas Sherman put one past the Rockets goalie on a coast to coast breakaway.

Another goal by Henry Lenarduzzi sealed the fate of the Rockets, in a decisive 4-2 win for the Salmon Arm SilverBacks. Kai Fazan and Austen York were named MVPs for the game.
