REDVERS - For the second time in their franchise history, the Redvers Rockets are the Big Six Hockey League champions.

The Rockets routed the Moosoimin Rangers 10-2 Friday night in Redvers to sweep the best-of-five league final in three games.

Redvers’ last championship came in 2018.

The Rockets eliminated any suspense early in Game 3 by scoring four times in the first period and adding another in the second for a 5-0 lead. They led 7-1 after two.

Presten Kopeck had three of Redvers’ first five goals and finished with four goals and two assists on the night. Kenton Miller had two goals and three helpers. Todd Gervais, Daylin Smallchild, Bradey Fidierchuk and Brady Gaudet also scored.

Cody Matthewson was in goal for Redvers in the clinching game.

Dawson Springer had both Moosomin goals.

Levi Horn and Kyler Beckett split the goaltending duties for Moosomin.

Then they went 8-0 in the playoffs.

Moosomin finished third in the regular season with a 16-4 mark.
