Chiefs end busy stretch with OT win

Kelowna plays seven KIJHL games in 10 days, wins two of last three

Finishing off their most gruelling stretch of the KIJHL season, the Kelowna Chiefs gutted out a 2-1 overtime victory over the North Okanagan Knights Sunday in Armstrong.

It was the Chiefs’ seventh game in a 10-day span and drew praise from Kelowna head coach Jason Tansem.

“It was a gutsy effort by our team,” Tansem said. “The (Knights) had nothing to lose and a full tank of gas. Some had vendetta in their games. This team has amazing chemistry and we believe in them.”

The win was the fourth for the Chiefs in a seven-game stretch and came at the end of a second consecutive weekend with three games.

Chiefs’ game star Brody Dale scored 52 seconds into overtime, tipping a point shot from Ty Dornn past Paul for his second goal of the game.

Josh Tetlichi made 17 saves for his fifth win of the season and second in a row.

The Chiefs (12-8-2-0) were coming off a 3-0 loss to the hometown Osoyoos Coyotes the previous night.

Game time is 7 p.m.
