Chiefs head to break with OT win

Kelowna ends two-name slump with home ice victory over Sicamous

Luke Kaleniuk and the Kelowna Chiefs are in third spot in the KIJHL's Okanagan Division heading into Christmas.

The Kelowna Chiefs head into the Christmas break with a much-needed boost after edging the Sicamous Eagles 7-6 in overtime Sunday at Rutland Arena.

It was the Chiefs third KIJHL game in as many nights and ended a two-game slide.

Joel Scrimbit notched the game winner at 1:59 of the second extra period.

Jonathan Lee paced the Chiefs attack with two goals and two assists, while  Ryan Lawson had a goal and two assists and Luke Kaleniuk added three assists.

Both teams have been sneaking a look ahead to Christmas, as Kelowna outshot the Eagles 63-48 in a wide open affair.

The Chiefs were coming off back-to-back losses—2-1 on Friday at home to Summerland, and 4-0 to the Storm Saturday in Kamloops.

Kelowna won just two of seven games in December.

The Chiefs (17-14-2-1) sit third in the Okanagan Division, six points back of the Steam.

Kelowna returns to action Saturday, Jan. 2 at home to the Princeton Posse. Game time at Rutland Arena is 7 p.m.
