It was not the trip the Storm had planned and came away with only a split of their road trip. The Storm had lots of excuses for Golden but excuses are not what the tea was looking for. In Golden the Storm went in shorthanded on defence with Anderson hurt and Schoech suspended but to make matters worse Marc Dumont got into a fight. He did well but with another damn gone it was difficult for the rest of the guys and Golden capitalized on their chances.
Golden we're full marks for the win and the Storm were frustrated. The Storm rebounded on Saturday with a win over the Rockies. Luke Gordon got a hat trick to lead the way. Rasmussen had a pair. Go to www.kijhl.com for details. Nick Landry has been suspended for at least 3 games.
The Storm are off to a great start and currently they have the second most goals in the entire league. Currently they have trail Osoyoos by one goal but have played one less game. Creston has one less goal than the Storm but have played fewer games. The Storm have 7 players currently with a point per game average. Creston have 6.
The Storms balanced scoring has been a pleasant surprise for the coaching staff. This weekend theStorm are in 100 Mile House on Friday then home to Chase on Sunday at 5 pm. Two important divisional games so need a couple of wins. The Storm will play in Sismous the following Wednesday. The Storm are currently leading the division with 16 points 5 ahead of both Chase and 100 Mile.
