Future Suns get jump on Suns, win 8-5

Utah Rebels due tonight for weekend series

It was a big night for the youngsters Wednesday when the Sun Valley Suns senior men's hockey team hosted the Future Suns in the annual holiday exhibition that raised funds for the Brett Sammis Scholarship Fund and Sun Valley Junior Hockey.

Building a 4-1 lead, the Future Suns youngsters held off a late charge by the favored Suns and prevailed 8-5 behind a three-goal hat trick by Travis Amick. Two of Amick's goals came in the third period after the Suns sliced the Future Suns lead to 6-5.

Two more Future Suns with major contributions on the scoresheet were Jackson Morgus (1 goal, 4 assists) and Tye Lampl (2 goals, 1 assist). Jamie Knight added a Future Suns goal. Cody Levitan (24 saves) and Brian Perry (third period) shared the goalkeeping for the winning team.

For the Suns, Jon Duval scored a pair of goals including the prettiest of the night on a perfect centering pass from Bryan O'Connell. John Miller started the third-period Suns comeback with a goal on passes by Zak Greenawalt and Charles Friedman.

Suns goalie Bobby Farrelly saw 34 shots and made 26 saves. Two Future Suns goals came on power plays.

Players rounding out the roster for Future Suns coach John Heinrich included Rob Morgus, Ian Murphy, Sinjin Thomas, Danny Ward, Charlie Evans, Zak Sjoberg, Neils McMahon, Doug King and Jimmy Hague.

The Suns are back in action today, Friday and Saturday, Dec. 31 with their New Year's weekend series against the Utah Rebels, opening faceoffs at 7 p.m. at Sun Valley Skating Center. Hailey Ice will benefit from the ticket proceeds.
