Steam stings Chiefs again in Kelowna

Penticton Herald - - SPORTS - By Pen­tic­ton Her­ald Staff

The Sum­mer­land Steam did again to the Kelowna Chiefs.

Mitchell Gove scored twice as the Steam stunned the Chiefs 4-3 Fri­day at the Rut­land Arena, hand­ing Kelowna its sec­ond reg­u­la­tion loss in 36 games this sea­son.

The Steam ended the Chiefs un­beaten streak with a 7-2 vic­tory in early-De­cem­ber – also in Kelowna’s build­ing.

Cory Lor­ing and Cody Swan also scored for the Steam (20-13-2-2), who led 2-0 and 3-1 at the pe­riod breaks.

Myles Mat­tila, Kaden Ste­wart and Tyler Love scored for the Chiefs (312-1-2), who could have clinched the Okana­gan Divi­sion pen­nant with a win.

Kelowna – which still hasn’t lost a road game this sea­son — had a 39-25 edge in shots on goal, with Eric Scherger mak­ing 36 saves for the Steam.

To prove it was no fluke, the Steam walked into the Revel­stoke Fo­rum and got two more goals from Gove to beat the Doug Birks Divi­sion­lead­ing Griz­zlies 4-3 on Satur­day.

Everett Scherger scored the win­ner on a power play with 2:17 to play – just nine sec­onds af­ter Josh Irvine had tied the game for the vaunted Griz­zlies (29-5-0).

Ty Banser also scored for the Steam and Eric Scherger was ter­rific again with 50 saves.

Ryan Bedard and Matt Cad­den had the other Revel­stoke goals.

A brawl broke out as the game ended with six fight­ing ma­jors, nine game mis­con­ducts and a 10-minute mis­con­duct as­sessed.

Coy­otes 4 Posse 0: Brock Marple scored twice and Bai­ley Monteith made 23 saves for the shutout as Osoy­oos de­feated Prince­ton Fri­day at the Sun Bowl Arena.

Tyler Bad­ger and Wy­att Wong also scored as the Coy­otes (13-20-2-1) halted a nine-game los­ing skid.

Jay­sen Ma­cLean made 47 saves for the Posse (11-23-1-2), who trailed 1-0 and 3-0 at the pe­riod breaks.

The Coy­otes also hosted the North Okana­gan Knights Sun­day night. it
