Wranglers split points in weekend games with Kamloops

Teams win in overtime in the own barns to collect three points in standings

Wranglers worked hard to fend off the Kamloops Storm during the first period of their Nov. 12 tilt in 100 Mile House

The 100 Mile Wranglers lost 5-4 in overtime when they visited the Kamloops Storm on Nov. 9.

It was a bit of a heart-breaker for the Wranglers, who still picked up a point, when the Storm scored with two seconds left in the first overtime.

Wranglers goals came from Sam Bosek (Ryan Friesen, Rob Raju), Nick Nordstrom (Austin Turner),

Bosek (Friesen) and Justin Bond (Stephen Egan).

The Wranglers won 3-2 in overtime on Nov. 12, despite the Storm scoring the first to markers of the game.

The goal scorers were Colton Thomas (Turner, Raju), Riley Coish (Bosek, Garrett Hilton) and Bond notched an unassisted power-play marker in overtime.

Head coach and general manager Dale Hladun says the lads’ play in the 5-4 overtime loss was indicative of the way they practised leading up to the game result.

“It was a little indifferent and there wasn’t a lot of jump in our practices and the game on Wednesday showed that.”

He says they told the boys they have to pick up the tempo and respect Kamloops as a good team.

As for Saturday night’s tilt at home, Hladun notes the team has a weird ability for coming back in games.

“I thought it was a good game all around and everybody contributed. I was really happy to see [Brendan] Henderson play a strong game for us.”

The Wranglers’ Nov. 18 game has been cancelled.

They host North Okanagan Knights on Nov. 19, with the puck dropping at 7 p.m.

Hladun says the boys will be on top of their game because the Knights, who are sitting fourth in a tough division, play hard for a full 60 minutes and forecheck very well.
