|Jeff Kennedy celebrates a big 3rd Period goal on Sunday.|
Here is how the final week of 2013 looked for the SilverBacks:
Friday Night, December 20th, SA Silverbacks @ Merritt Centennials:
In a re-match from last Sunday's game, where the Centennials stormed back from down 4-1 to win 5-4 in over-time, Salmon Arm came in looking for revenge. However; playing with a short bench yet again may have prevented the ‘Backs from getting just that, as the Cents took this one by a score of 5-2. Landon Smith scored 2 power-play goals on the night, giving the BCHL Player of the Week, and leading scorer 8 goals his last 4 games.
Sunday, December the 22nd Powell River Kings @ SA Silverbacks:
This was the BCHL’s last game before the Holiday season, as the Powell River Kings wrapped up their 3 game road-trip in Salmon Arm, after victories in Coquitlam, and Vernon the previous two nights. Adam Clark made 44 saves for his first shutout of the season and the SilverBacks won by a score of 5-0. Michael Roberts picked up his first 2 goals as a SilverBack and Jeff Kennedy grabbed a short-handed goal, while Landon Smith had another multi-point game, as the SilverBacks had one of their best performances of the year at home.
SilverBacks Home Record: 12-5-0-2
