The Atom Rec Leko Precast Samurai’s faced off against Vernon on Sunday, winning the contest 8-2.

Joel DeHoog scored just two minutes into the game, his first of three on the evening.

Joseph Jones scored a pair of his own, his first of the game putting the Samurais up by two with less than five minutes played in the first.

Gabriel Niewenhuizen put the Samurais up by three early in the second before Vernon scored one of their own in an attempt to set up the comeback.

Taylor Sanford quashed any thought of that however, popping in a rebound just six minutes later to regain their three goal lead heading into the third period.

It took just 10 seconds for Sebastien Sayers to get a goal of his own in the final frame, and DeHoog and Jones would score to help seal the victory for the Samurais.
