Kimberley Dynamiters backs to the wall

Wranglers one win away from Kootenay International Junior Hockey League title

Goalie Zane Steeves had another spectacular night between the pipes for the 100 Mile House Wranglers on March 30

Justin Bond was on fire last night as he scored two goals to help the Wranglers take a strangle hold on the 2016 KIJHL Championship with a 3-2 victory on home ice against the Kimberley Dynamiters.

Bond’s line-mates were also flying as Nick McCabe pick up assists on all three Wrangler goals and Alex Meeker also got an assist.

The Wranglers were up 3-0 midway through second period on goals by Bond (Todd Bredo, McCabe), Bond (Meeker, McCabe) and Tlyer Povelofskie (McCabe).

Dynamiters goalie Tyson Brouwer was pulled after the Wranglers’ third goal and was replaced by Mitch Traichevich.

Kimberley’s Korbyn Chabot (Sawyer Hunt, Jordan Busch) and Jared Marchi (Keenan Haase) replied for the Dynamiters.

The Wranglers were outshot 42-24 with most of the Kimberley shots coming from the perimeter and on the power play where sharpshooters had a little more open ice.

The Dynamiters scored two power-play goals on nine opportunities, with seven Wranglers penalties coming in the second half of the middle stanza and the third period.

The Wranglers scored to power-play markers on five opportunities.

Game 5 of the series goes tonight (March 31) at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre in 100 Mile House. The puck drops at 7 p.m.
