The local junior hockey Heat played two games that went from lackadaisical effort to redemption in 24 hours.

On Friday, Nov. 14, the Revelstoke Grizzlies were hosted at Art Holding Memorial Arena. The Heat giftwrapped a 5-1 victory for the visitors, the lone Chase marker coming from the stick of Alexander Durbeniuk, assisted by Zachary Fournier.  Highlights for the locals were non-existent.

However, on Saturday night, Nov. 15, they travelled to Sicamous to take on the division-leading Eagles where hard work, energy and enthusiasm delivered a 3-3 tie that went the distance into double overtime. Cody Hodges opened scoring in the first from Mitchell Walters and Travis Beaubien, followed by Logan Mostat from Cole Perison and Kolten Moore. The Eagles then scored three-in-a-row prior to Hodges scoring unassisted to tie the game.

There’s a huge weekend of action coming up with the 100 Mile House Wranglers at AHMA on Friday, Nov. 21. Then the Heat travels to Kamloops for a Saturday-night tilt at MacArthur Island Recreation Centre. The same two teams, the Heat and Storm, meet Sunday, Nov. 23 at 5 p.m. in Chase. These are three divisional contests that could see some changes in the standings.
