The past Junior Hockey Weekend started with a visit to Chase by the 100 Mile House Wranglers on Friday, Nov. 21.
At the end of regulation play, the teams, in an entertaining contest, were tied at 5-5.
In the first, Chase got on the board with Tyler Mork scoring on the power play assisted by Logan Mostat and Trevor Okino.
Then 100 Mile scored four straight to complete the period. No scoring in the second, but Chase on the power play from Mostat, assists to Cody Hodges and Okino got things started.
Another 100 Mile marker gave them a 5-2 lead prior to three straight for the Heat. Mork from Alex Durbeniuk, Hayden Orton from Hodges and Travis Beaubien and then Mork on the power play for a hat trick from Kolten Moore and Mostat.
In the first overtime, 100 Mile potted the winner to take two points down the road, Chase got a point for the tie in regulation.
Saturday, Nov. 22, the Heat took on the Kamloops Storm at McArthur Park Arena. Badly outshot the Heat took a 5-2 loss.
In the second, it was Wes Matsuda from Austin Willier and Zach Fournier and in the third Moore from Braden Hughes and Travis Churchill. Kamloops scored on the third of 13 power-play opportunities as the Heat spent time in the sin bin.
Sunday afternoon the 23rd saw a rematch at Art Holding Memorial Arena.
Into the third period the Storm were up 3-0 when injury returning Captain Kaleb Boyle got his first from Beaubien and Okino.
His second came from a beauty of a pass from Okino with Mostat also assisting. That was all the scoring as this barn-burning event ended 3-2 for Kamloops.
Not much for points but some positive signs as the Heat fight back from a rash of injuries.
Four regulars still remain out of the lineup with significant injuries. Next up the Eagles from Sicamous on Friday the 28th before the Heat travel to Kelowna on Saturday for a contest versus the Chiefs in the Little Apple.
