Recap – Disher scores 4 in Smoke Eaters 7-2 Win Over Wenatchee

Tim Fragle expected a response and that’s what he got from his team on Saturday afternoon as they beat the Wild 7-2.

The Smoke Eaters started early and kept up the pressure all night, as Quinn Disher picked up his first of four on the night as he beat Liam Choquette on a 2-on-1 with Adam Marshall who fed him a perfect pass. Ethan Willoughby would double the Smoke Eaters lead before the period was out with a shot from the left point that hit a Wenatchee stick on its way past the Wild’s netminder.

The Smoke Eaters were relentless in the second scoring three more goals. Disher added his second as the puck came out of the left corner to him at the left circle, where he took the puck and went to the net, sliding the it under the goaltender for a 3-0 Trail lead. Nicholas Remissong put his stamp on the game as the point shot from Willoughby came loose where Remissong made no mistake flipping the puck over the pad of Choquette to make it 4-0. Disher capped off his hat-trick with a bit of luck as he spun below the goal line looking to pass into the slot for two open teammates when the puck hit the skate of the Wenatchee netminder and went in. The Wild closed out the period with their first of the night, as Parker Murray jumped on a loose puck in the slot to beat Cole Tisdale, who took over at the halfway point of the game for Aidan Fischer who was perfect during his 29 minutes of action.

The third was proper game management from a Smoke Eaters perspective, Disher added a fourth, scoring on the powerplay 5:55 into the third, while JT Halliday was Johnny on the spot to finish off a tic-tac-toe sequence that started below the goal line with Marshall and Josh Schenk who found Halliday out front. Murray would score his second for the Wild in the night as he got a breakaway from the bluing in after a misplay in the neutral zone by the Smoke Eaters.

Trail returns home after splitting the weekend and get set for their final two exhibition games against the Cranbrook Bucks starting Friday September 16th, at Cominco Arena. Tickets are on sale now and are just $5.
