Chase Heat earned a point in each of their games over the past weekend

Losing it in overtime

On Wednesday, Nov. 5 the Heat travelled to Armstrong to take on the North Okanagan Knights

On Wednesday, Nov. 5 the Heat travelled to Armstrong to take on the North Okanagan Knights. The teams had just completed a major trade – Jordan Passmore for Tyler Mork, so excitement was in the air.

Passmore was unable to suit up due to illness in this one. In the first, Chase struck halfway through, Braden Hughes on the powerplay from Eric Austin.

In the second, the Heat got two more, Travis Beaubien on the power play from Cody Hodges and Trevor Okino.

The Knights got one in the third and the local road warriors travelled home with a 3-1 victory. Daniel Toews, in his first contest, backstopped the boys, stopping 24 of 25.

On Friday, Nov. 7 the Heat hosted the 100 Mile House Wranglers at Art Holding Memorial Arena. The Wranglers got off to a quick start, scoring three on their first three shots.

Then Hodges scored the first of three in a row for a hat trick.

The first in the first came from Tyler Mork and Cole Perison. In the second, it was Hodges from Mork and Beaubien and then an unassisted marker. In the third, the teams exchanged a pair of goals each to wind up regulation play at 5-5.  Mork scored from Okino and Hodges and Austin Willier from Austin and Alex Durbeniuk.

With 15 seconds left in double overtime the Wranglers fired the winner to take a 6-5 victory in an action- packed contest. Mike Byer in net stopped 35 of 41 Wrangler shots.

On Saturday the 8th, the Heat hosted the Castlegar Rebels.

In a similar performance to the previous evening, the hosts let the visitors score two quick ones to take a 2-0 lead after 20 minutes.  It was all Chase in the second, Connor Venne from Connor Harding, then Venne again from Kolten Moore and Okino and, closing out the period, Willier from Austin and Zac Fournier. In the third, the Rebels got two while the Heat popped in one, Venne for a hat trick from Okino and Logan Mostat.

The score was 4-4 and, once again in double overtime, the visitors scored to claim a 5-4 victory. Byer stopped 32 of 37 to take the loss.

Next is a Nov. 14 home contest versus the Revelstoke Grizzlies before the Heat travel to Sicamous for a Saturday night road game.
