Setting the Scene

The Raiders took a 2-1 lead in the 2019 Rogers WHL Championship Series with an 8-2 win in Game 3 at the Langley Events Centre.

Parker Kelly scored 41 seconds into the game to set the tone. Ozzy Wiesblatt added another at the 2:27 mark to put the Raiders up 2-0 and chase David Tendeck from the Giants’ goal.

The goalie change didn’t halt the momentum. Brett Leason tallied twice and Cole Fonstad scored another to give the Raiders a 5-0 lead at the media timeout of the first period.

After the break, Kelly scored his second of the period with 3:30 to go in the first 20 minutes. Then with 16 seconds to play in the opening frame, Jeremy Masella hit Noah Gregor with a stretch pass and the future NHLer with the San Jose Sharks struck to make it a 7-0 lead for the Raiders after the first.

Dante Hannoun added another goal with 3:49 to play in the second to give the Raiders an 8-0 advantage.

Late in the second, Brayden Watts – a Giant at the time – broke Ian Scott’s shutout bid with a power-play goal with 52 seconds left in the frame. Yannik Valenti also scored on the power-play with 5:16 to play in the third to round out the scoring.

Scott picked up his second consecutive win and 14th of the WHL Playoffs by making 27 saves.
