Wild Run Win Streak to Six Games with Weekend Sweep

Speaking of the Wenatchee Wild, their winning streak has no reached 6-games after sweeping Salmon Arm and Vernon over the weekend…
On Friday, Wenatchee had eight different players score goals in an 8-3 win over the Silverbacks. PJ Fletcher broke a scoreless tie at the 12:10 mark of the 1st period to put the Wild up and start the avalanche. Christophe Fillion scored a minute-14 later to make it 2-nil. Brian Adams and Matt Gosiewski finished off the first to make it 4-0 heading into the first intermission. The Wild would add goals by Lucas Sowder, Nathan Ionnone, Brian Adams and Blake Bargar to earn its 5th straight victory.

Saturday was a little different story. Even though Chad Sasaki scored two goals early and Brandon Koch (cook) gave Wenatchee an early 3-1 lead, Vernon would come back to lead 4-3 in the third. But Matt Dorsey would tie it in the 3rd and Christophe Tellier (TELL-ee-AY) would provide the game-winner just 20-seconds later.
