A strong defensive effort from Samantha Catellier, Matthew Lowery, Craig Preston, Connor McWatters, Logan Gottwald, Kaeden Seiter and Jack Edwards allowed the forwards to pressure the opposition.
The result was that on Nov. 4 the Summerland Atom House team defeated the West Kelowna Destroyers by a score of 12 to 2.
Although rarely under sustained pressure, the goaltending tandem of Ben Lewis and Caitlyn Riddle made some timely saves when called upon.
The balanced attack resulted in goals by eight different players.
Goals were scored by Seth Doan (1), Kai Reid (3), Zachary Boerboom (2), Brett Cerutti (1) Max Havers (2), Levi Doerksen (1), Cameron Budney (1), and Sarah Paul (1).
The McDonald’s Golden Jersey was presented to Ryan Haist for his effort.
On Nov. 10 Summerland Atom House powered back from a 5-3 deficit at the end of the second period to pull out a 6-5 victory over the Osoyoos Rattlers in the last minute of play.
Goal scorers were Zachary Boerboom (3), Seth Doan (2) and Max Havers (1).
Zachary was also awarded the McDonald’s Golden Jersey for his hard work at both ends of the ice.
Led by the strong offensive effort of Kai Reid with 5 goals and an assist, Summerland had an easier time against the Westside Warriors on Nov. 18.
Summerland busted out to a 6-0 lead before finishing the game with an 8-3 win.
Other goal scorers were Seth Doan, Levi Doerksen and Jack Edwards.
Zachary Boerboom counted three assists. Ben Lewis was awarded the McDonald’s Golden Jersey for his solid goaltending.
