Kelowna Chiefs players took part in festivities in Rutland before hitting the ice Wednesday

The Kelowna Chiefs had a day to remember on Remembrance Day, beginning with the honour of marching in the Rutland A.N.A.F march to the Cenotaph at Lion’s Park and ending with Brody Dale scoring his first two KIJHL goals in a 5-1 victory over the division leading Osoyoos Coyotes.

Captain Ryan Lawson was joined by alternate captains Josh Baird, Dakota Kittle and injured Kevin Roth laying a wreath at the Lion’s Park Cenotaph in Rutland following the march. Brody Dale, Kohlman Brinsky and Tyler Love took part as flag bearers with the rest of the team following in the march as well.

Following a disappointing weekend where they dropped two of three games, the Chiefs got off to a good start leading Osoyoos 1-0 at end the first period.

In the second the sixteen year old Dale marked his first KIJHL goal that also turned out to be the winning goal. His brother Brady Dale would assist on the goal with a chip pass into the slot and the Chiefs led 2-0.

The Dale brother each scored in the third period as Kelowna increased its lead to 5-0 and  Osoyoos was left with simply setting a tone for Saturday’s rematch. They did put one past Chiefs starter Brady Lenardon (32 saves) who was solid in picking up his 10th win this season, 5-1 for the Chiefs.

Brody Dale was named game star for the Chiefs after picking up two goals on the night along with an assist. Osoyoos forward Jackson Gimpel who assisted on their lone goal was named game star for the Coyotes.

The Chiefs next game is this Friday at Rutland Arena when they host the Spokane Braves (3-15-0). It’s a special night with the Kelowna Gospel Mission and Rampone-Marsh Mortgages inaugural Coats for Kelowna donation drive.
