The Kimberley Dynamiters continued to roll through the competition in KIJHL action this past weekend, claiming a pair of 6-2 victories over the Columbia Valley Rockies and Spokane Braves.
Friday, the Nitros (21-3-0-3) travelled north to Invermere to face the division-rival Rockies (15-14-0-0) — a team putting forth a strong push in the muddied middle of the Eddie Mountain Division.
Veteran Kimberley product Jared Marchi fired up his weekend on a strong note, tallying a goal and an assist.
Marchi wasn’t the only vet to post a multi-point effort Friday as both Jason Richter and Trey Doell chipped in with a goal and an assist each.
Goaltender Mitch Traichevich earned his fifth victory of the campaign, backstopping his club with a 30-save performance.
Saturday evening back at the Kimberley Civic Centre, Marchi wasn’t a very welcoming host as the Spokane Braves became yet another victim of the 20-year-old’s hot season.
The 5-foot-11, 200-pound forward topped his Friday night by firing home three goals and assisting on another.
Through 27 games this season, Marchi has already surpassed his offensive output from 2014-15 (13 goals, 31 points), tallying 15 goals and 36 points.
The overage forward’s career mark came in 2013-14, when he posted 25 goals and 57 points in 43 games.
As it stands, Marchi is well on his way to besting that. With 25 games remaining, he is on pace to score 68 points.
Between the pipes, goaltender Tyson Brouwer made 22 saves to collect his KIJHL-leading 16th triumph.
Richter bolstered his point totals once again, factoring in on all three of Marchi’s tallies.
The Nitros went 5-for-11 on the man advantage over the two wins.
The Dynamiters look to build upon their KIJHL-best record this Friday night when they welcome the Nelson Leafs (13-12-0-1) to the Kimberley Civic Centre.
