Moore fires four for Eagles

Austin Moore fired four goals as the Talon Benefits Eagles ambushed the North Okanagan Knights 8-2

Austin Moore pocketed four goals as the Talon Benefits Eagles ambushed the North Okanagan Knights 8-2 in North Okanagan Midget Super Hockey League play Sunday afternoon in Enderby.

Zach Laranjo, Hayden Vardon, Reid Lawrence and Jaxxon Collard also scored for the 3-1 Eagles, who got two assists from Sapion Joe and stellar goaltending from Aidan Spraggs.

Nick Walker and Ryan Maglow replied for the 0-3 Knights.

Captain Jaden Steinke scored six times as the Corbett Office Plus Storm rallied to ice the Winfield Bruins 9-5 in North Okanagan Midget Super Hockey League play Friday night at Civic Arena

Down 5-2 with two players on the bench, the 2-1 Storm unleashed six goals in the third period, including three in two minutes. Steinke fired five straight snipes.

Sam White was the comeback catalyst, registering the go-ahead goal at the 16-minute mark of the third and assisting the ninth goal. Other offence came from Jacob Wettlaufer (2+2) and Tyler Semeniuk, splitting time between forward and defence, adding three helpers.

Meanwhile, CJ Maleniza backstopped the Five Star Awards Rebels to back-to-back shutout Bantam league wins last weekend.

First, the Rebels rolled to a 5-0 road victory over the Winfield Bruins on Saturday. Vernon pivot Cole Grevatt opened the scoring with a sharp-angle shot, and then Kayden Bowering and Nikolas Maric both capitalized off Grevatt rebounds.

Quinn Soon beat the Winfield tender with a one-hopper from outside the blueline. Connor Cecchini tallied last, adeptly

The Rebels repelled the DCT Chambers Trucking Vikings 8-0 Sunday at Priest Valley Arena.

Maric counted first, prying the loose puck after Ephren Potter-Cramer’s wraparound bid. Next, Grevatt set up Bailey Alexis for a tap-in, and then popped a pair of his own. In the second, Cecchini and Dylan Wapple converted with heavy artillery. Dawson Twamley gift-wrapped another for Cecchini, who swept in a backhand. Owen Swiscoski pinballed home the final Rebel goal from the right point.

The Lumby Stars were road warriors as they grounded the Salmon Arm Greyhounds 8-6 and dispatched the North Okanagan Knights 4-2 in other weekend Bantam action.

The Stars, who carry sponsorship from Great West Equipment and Green Velvet Tree & Lawn Care, got their opening two goals from affiliated player Jace Van De Vliert Saturday night at the Shaw Centre

Linden Catt and Kohl Van De Vliert each pocketed two snipes, while Tye Krause converted a beauty on sweet pass from Zachary Young and Quintin O’Neill buried a Ryder Quibell feed. Quibell finished ith three helpers, while affiliate Faith Seehaver supplied two assists.

Catt and Krause each connected twice Sunday in Armstrong as the Stars got dynamic defense by captain Peter Romailler, Mia Maltman and Domenik Porteous. Kaleb Pachal showed his versatility by playing both defence and forward in support of Ethan Kober.

In Pee Wee play, Salmon Arm Salmar Classics stopped the Knights 5-2 Saturday at the Shaw Centre. Waylen Stowards and Noah Peckham handled the Knights’ offence.
