Merritt Centennials
Q101 is the Home of the Cents!


The Centennials as a team had a great week going three for three on a homestand, but a couple players stood out enough to get noticed by the BCHL. 

Goaltender Jacob Berger, who got credit for all three wins, stopped 77 of 80 shots had a .963 save percentage and a goals against average of less than one over the three games. 

Head Coach Joe Martin says that Berger has been a rock for them in net all season, and now that the team is playing better defensively around him it's starting to show. 

"Early on we didn't have great defending, and he was still giving us chances to win. He's been playing well, he's been relaxed, and he's been focused, and in that game where Vincent went down it really showed what Jake had."

The other Cent who got some love from the league is Nick Wicks. In three games Wicks had 2 goals and 3 assists and was the second star of the game twice. Coach Martin says that Wicks has made the most of a tumultuous start to the season.

"He saw an opening at the 1st line centre position, and he's taken it and run with it." 

The Centennials next test comes against the Salmon Arm Silverbacks on Friday night in Salmon Arm. With a win the Cents could leap frog the Silverbacks in the standings and take over 6th in the division.
