The Kelowna Chiefs are on a six-game winning streak

The Kelowna Chiefs will look to push their season-high KIJHL winning streak to seven games when they visit the Penticton Lakers on Wednesday night.

The Chiefs made it six straight victories on Sunday afternoon with a 4-1 victory over the hometown Princeton Posse.

Goaltender Tyler O’Donnell was solid for the second straight game stopping 39 shots in the Chiefs’ net.

Nick Joseph led the Chiefs with two goals and an assist, while Brady Mende and Braeden Hikichi added singles.

Jordan Salahor had two assists for the Chiefs and shares the KIJHL scoring lead with Beaver Valley’s Dallas Calvin with 70 points.

The Chiefs (29-13-1-1) are four points ahead of Princeton and Osoyoos for top spot in the Okanagan Division.

On Saturday, the Chiefs won their fifth straight, beating the Golden Rockets 4-1 at Rutland Arena.

Tyler O’Donnell made another 39 saves in the win, including 17 in the second period.

Mitchell Barker, Brady Mende, Jordan Salahor and Nick Josephs scored for the Chiefs.

At times a chippy affair, 69 minutes in penalties were handed out in the second period, including four misconducts.
