Chiefs ousted from postseason

Summerland defeats Kelowna four games to two in KIJHL first round series

The Kelowna Chiefs reluctantly watched their 2015-16 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League season come to an end on Tuesday night.

At Rutland Arena, the Summerland Steam shutout the Chiefs 3-0 to close out Okanagan Division semifinal playoff series in six games.

Michael McEachern had a goal and an assist and Matthew Kostiw made 25 saves for the Steam who won the last three games in the best-of-seven matchup.

The Chiefs won the series opener and Game 3 to take a 2-1 series lead, but watched Summerland rebound with successive wins—3-2 on Saturday, 4-3 in overtime on Monday,  and 3-0 in Game 6.

The underdog Chiefs, who finished 19 points back of Summerland during the regular season, gave the Steam all they could handle in the series. Summerland outscored Kelowna by a slim 16-14 margin.

The team’s spring camp is set for May 27 to 29 at Rutland Arena.

The following are the Chiefs individual award winners for 2015-16:

Josh Kobelka, Most Sportsmanlike; Josh Johnston, Unsung Hero; Tyler Love, Most Improved; Jace Woodley, Fan Favourite; Jeffrey Schlegel, Scholastice Player of the Year;  Brody Dale, Rookie of the Year; Joel Scrimbit, Top Defenceman; Josh Baird, Top Scorer; Jonathan Lee, Most Valuable Player | David Lahn, Volunteer of the Year.
