The Ghostriders were in the win column again on Saturday night with an 8 1 thrashing of the Creston Thunder Cats. Eighteen different Riders had at least a point in this one as the coaches tried to not run up the score by playing everyone later in the game.
This Game was Close For Awhile
The Ghost out shot Creston 16 7 in the first but only Bond Hawryluk left photo could beat Sunny Gill. In the second Creston came to play and the shots were 15 14 Riders but the score was 3 0. The Thunder Cats were pretty good in the second and followed it up in the third with about four goals, only trouble was three went into their own net and the final was 8 1 for the Ghostriders.
At times Creston carried the play and for a while the outcome of the game was uncertain. The week before when Creston was here they had had the flu bug go through the team and lost 7 1 and looked terrible for the whole game, this week the Cats were alright until the third when they just fell apart. These guys could be trouble on their own ice, the Riders will find out Oct. 22.
With a nice breakaway goal in the second on a good pass from Joel James, Tim Crawley was the first star. The two brothers are both good solid players who punish the opposition and get points in most games.0
