The New Westminster Junior Salmonbellies travelled to Victoria Saturday, April 26 to open the 2015 BCJALL regular season. Behind some terrific gaoltending from Mike Flintoff, the Bellies rolled to a 9-6 victory over the always dangerous Shamrock. After opening the game with two straight goals, the Bellies finished the period up 3-2 on goals from Tyrell Hamer-Jackson and Preston Lupul with two. After going down 4-3 in the early moments of period two, Riley Peterson scored on a strong bull rush to the net to knot the score. That goal gave New Westminster some momentum and they would go on a six goal run and effectively put the game out of reach.
Mr Mikes Player of the Game awards went to Mike Flintoff for his excellent work in net, stopping 44 of 50 shots, and to Tyrell Hamer-Jackson who did good work in the face-off circle and was a threat every time on the floor.
