100 Mile House Wranglers end January with win over Summerland Steam

The 100 Mile House Wranglers are still one step ahead of the Kamloops Storm after beating the Summerland Steam on Jan. 31.

The Wranglers beat the Steam, 5-3, capturing their 18th win of the season. Forwards Cory Loring and Khale Skinner got two goals each, with Darian Long scoring one as well. Cody Barnes, Nic Flinton and Quinn Mulder all had two assists.

Anti Mustapic started the scoring for Summerland in the middle of the first period, with Skinner answering less than a minute later. However, the momentum stayed with Summerland, with Mitchell Grove scoring a powerplay goal and Josh Bourchier adding a third goal. Skinner managed to score his second goal of the game with two minutes and 30 seconds left on the clock, ending the period 3-2 in favour for Summerland.

No one managed to score in the second period.
