Bucks win big in Merritt for second consecutive victory

📸: Cranbrook Bucks

The Cranbrook Bucks have won back-to-back games for the first time since the Merritt Centennials snapped their five-game win streak in early January.

After winning their previous game in Vernon last Saturday, the Bucks picked up a 4-0 win in Merritt on Friday night.

Cranbrook got goals from Luke Pfoh, Johnny Johnson, Declan Ride, and Carsyn Good in the victory.

It was Good’s first goal in the BC Hockey League, while Ride got his second of the season and first with the Bucks.

Forwards Noah Quinn, Tyson Dyck, and Liam Hansson each picked up a pair of assists, Ride added an assist for a two-point night of his own, and Cam Kungle contributed a helper as well.

The story of the game for Cranbrook was 16-year-old goalie Carter Capton, who made 15 saves for a shutout in his BCHL debut.

The 2005-born product of Lethbridge, AB is committed to the Bucks for next season, and he is off to a perfect start in his BCHL career.

Cranbrook is back in action on Saturday night in West Kelowna as they continue a three-game road trip this weekend.
