Vernon Renegades sizzle at Civic
The Sun Valley Source For Sports Renegades jumpstarted their Bantam Rep hockey tournament with a 13-1 spanking of the Dawson Creek Canucks Friday night at Civic Arena.
A single by Brady Marzocco, followed by two snipes by Jagger Williamson, had the Renegades in firm control after 20 minutes.
Eamonn Miller and Williamson, each with a pair, and singles by Marzocco, Matt Kowalski and Jarett Campbell accounted for Vernon’s second-period assault. Williamson, with his fifth and sixth of the night, and another single by Kowalski capped the offence in the third frame.
Assists went to Kaden Black (4), Williamson (2), Miller (2), Reed Cashato (2), Grady Caton, Michael Lenoury, Gage Kopp and Harvey Pawsey.
D-man Kopp kept Dawson Creek out of the house and cleaned up the loose ends.
In other tournament action Friday, Quesnel beat Penticton 1-0, Abbotsford stuffed Castlegar 7-4 and Trail iced Nelson 13-1.
In Bantam Tier 3 exhibition action Friday, the Vernon Fix Auto Vikings outlasted the Winfield Bruins 3-2 in a penalty-filled affair at Priest Valley Arena.
The Vikings relied on the solid goaltending of Conor Webb, and were boosted by the return of heavy-hitting Carl Main, who collected two goals. Jason Shaigec collected the other snipe.
Owen Beliveau, Colton Skead and Stephane Richard chipped in with an assist each.
The Vernon H&L Glass Wolfpack opened the Kelowna Whiteout Tournament with a 12-3 victory over Winfield.
Vernon’s offence came from Ben King (4+1), Lucas Zubrod (2G), Isaac Thomas (2G), Trevor Kennedy (1+2), Anne Cherkowski, Logan Chapdelaine and call-up Owen Palfreyman. Jaxxon Collard chipped in with three assists.
Goaltending duties were split between Cayden Hamming and Tanner Witt.
