Kelowna Chiefs face-off against Osoyoos Coyotes

It will be coach Ken Law’s first time returning to the Osoyoos Sun Bowl

Rutland’s own Kelowna Chiefs will face off for the first time against the Osoyoos Coyotes tomorrow night at the Osoyoos Sun Bowl.

Coach Ken Law will return for the first time since he was fired from his position of eight years as head coach-GM in April when owner Randy Bedard decided to go in a ‘different direction.’

Law says he is little apprehensive to be back on the ice in Osoyoos and see familiar faces but plans on bringing his fast skaters to play.
