Chiefs burned by lo­cal prod­uct in loss to Prince­ton

The Daily Courier - - SPORTS -

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

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 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 added a short­handed, empty-net goal with 1:52 to play.

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 the Chiefs, who travel to Kam­loops tonight.

The Posse (7-2-1-1) moved into a first-place tie with the Sum­mer­land Steam in the Okana­gan Di­vi­sion.
