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.

The Chiefs will visit the Summerland Steam on Friday, looking to avenge a 5-1 loss that began there late seven-game stretch. On Saturday, the North Okanagan Knights return to Rutland Arena for a rematch.


Game time is 7 p.m.
