The Chase Heat’s Kolton Moore tips a point shot redirecting the puck up and over North Okanagan Knights’ goalie Tristan Quiring

Big win for Heat on weekend

On Friday, Nov. 6, the Armstrong-based North Okanagan Knights faced the Heat at the Art Holding Memorial Arena

On Friday, Nov. 6, the Armstrong-based North Okanagan Knights faced the Heat at the Art Holding Memorial Arena.

Chase controlled the play for the first 40 minutes, scoring three times.

In the first, it was Kolten Moore from Hayden Orton and Trevor Okino.

In the second, the battered Spencer Farstad got the Heat’s second from Okino and then Moore scored his second of the night, assisted by Zachary Fournier and Braden Hughes.

In the last month Farstad received 20 stitches around his mouth from an errant puck. Just as the stitches healed he took a high stick on the chin, receiving seven more stitches.

In the third, after the Knights’ coach blistered the paint off the team’s dressing room during the second intermission, a different team hit the ice.

Chase, assuming that the game was won, was not prepared and had trouble shifting into a higher gear.

North Okanagan potted a pair and if the game had lasted another 20 seconds, the Knights might have tied the game.

The hockey gods saw differently, and the local Heat claimed the vital two points for the win.

Nic Bruyere, who started in goal, stopped 19 of 21 shots, for his eighth win of the season.

Ice Chips:  After a Remembrance Day game in Kamloops versus the Storm, the Heat head back out on the road to play the Columbia Valley Rockies and the Golden Rockets. Another adventure for “Chunky Monkey and the Lads,” and maybe another excerpt from the non-existent novel?

Chase plays Kamloops at the Art Holding Memorial Arena on Friday, Nov. 20 at 7 p.m.

A total of $3,100 was raised for Breast Cancer Awareness through the auctioning off of October’s game- worn pink jerseys. The Heat presented Team Chase with a cheque on Nov. 6.
