Vanderhoof product scores as Spruce Kings out last Salmon Arm

With the gas tanks running on empty, the Prince George Spruce Kings found a way to dig deep.

A two-goal second period by John Herrington and Ty Gagno paced the BCHL’s most northern franchise to a 3-1 victory on Sunday over the Salmon Arm Silverbacks.

Jordan Fairlie was stellar in goal for the Spruce Kings, turning aside 35 Salmon Arm shots, and taking 1st-star honours in the contest.

PG was outshot 36-27.

The box score is right here.

Vanderhoof product Linden Makow got things started for PG scoring at 9:24 of the first period and lighting the lamp against Silverbacks netminder Matthew Tovell.
