Posse for­ward has a big home­com­ing

Penticton Herald - - SPORTS -

Drew Carter re­turned to his home­town and stunned the Kelowna Chiefs.

The 20-year-old Kelowna prod­uct de­liv­ered a nat­u­ral hat-trick in the third pe­riod and as­sisted on the two other goals as the sur­pris­ing Prince­ton Posse over­came a 3-0 deficit to beat the Chiefs 5-3 Tues­day at the Rut­land Arena.

With the Posse trail­ing 3-2, Carter tied the game 59 sec­onds into the third, notched the game-win­ner at 10:14 and carded a short­handed, empty-net goal with 1:52 to play.

Owen Hart and Chad Kim­mie added sec­ond-pe­riod mark­ers as the Posse (7-2-1-1) moved into a first-place tie with the Sum­mer­land Steam in the Okana­gan Di­vi­sion.

Bren­dan Mongey and Lane Pad­di­son in the first and Devin Sut­ton early in the sec­ond gave Kelowna (4-4-1) the 3-0 lead.

Bobby Mil­li­gan made 39 saves for the Posse while Ethan Hunt stopped 26 shots for Kelowna.

On Fri­day, the Posse vis­its Chase Heat while Kelowna trav­els to Kam­loops. Sum­mer­land Steam is home to North Okana­gan Knights in a 7:30 p.m. puck­drop, while the Osoy­oos Coy­otes visit the 100 Mile House Wran­glers.

On Saturday, Sum­mer­land vis­its Osoy­oos at 7:35 p.m. at the Sun Bowl Arena.
