Rockets Hit Century Mark

The Kelowna Rockets have become the first team in the Western Hockey League to crack the 100 point barrier this season. The Rockets picked up win number 43 Saturday night with a hard fought 3-2 victory over the visiting Kamloops Blazers.

The win, combined with Kootenay's 2-2 tie in Red Deer moves the Rockets 4 points up on the Ice atop the BC Division and overall league standings. Kootenay has 4 games remaining, Kelowna has 3.

Troy Bodie scored what proved to be the winner, his 22nd of the season, 10 and a half minutes into the third period. Rookie Lauris Darzins in the first and Brent Howarth in the 2nd, scored for the Rockets.

The Rockets, unbeaten in 26 straight on home ice, play 2 of their final 3 games at Prospera Place. They host Prince George Wednesday and Vancouver Friday, before closing out the regular season next Saturday in Vancouver.
