Smoke Eaters 5 Silverbacks 2

I'm sure a happy group of Smokies are at this hour rolling back toward the Cominco Arena aboard the Trail Blazer after a 5-2 pre-season victory in Salmon Arm.

All but one of Trail's goals were scored by players who didn't feature in last weekend's exhibition series, including a pair from Matt Bissett. John Saunders, Dallas Calvin and Chris Romanchuk rounded out the scoring for Trail, who next play next Friday night at Vernon in another pre-season affair.

Thanks to Scott Campbell, the 'Backs new play-by-play guy for keeping the Twitter-verse sated with updates, he has posted a more comprehensive recap on his Silverbacks blog (link to the right).

I should also mention the KIJHL final from Fruitvale, as the Nitehawks shut out Fernie 7-0 this evening in what I understand was a penalty-filled game.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend everybody!
