Having a happy new year

The team played host to Kamloops Jan. 9, winning 9-3. Alex Astasiewicz, Jack Karran, Joey Guerra and Nathan Plessis each scored a pair, while Noah Bumstead provided the solid goaltending in the win. Eric Porter and Josh Kujat each had a couple of assists. On Jan. 14, the Silvertips dominated Vernon, with a final score of 9-1. Eric Johnson led the way with a hat trick, while Dawson Head and  Astasiewicz each scored a pair. Guerra and Plessis had three assists each. On that Sunday, the local boys travelled to Westside to challenge the second place team, winning 3-2 win. Tyler Collens notched a pair, including the winner. The top three teams are all within a few points of each other, with the Silvertips in second place.
