Comeback by Chilliwack stalls Powell River Kings perfect weekend

Chiefs rally from 3-0 deficit to deny four-point road trip for visitors from the Sunshine Coast
Powell River Kings' leading scorer Karter McNarland scored one of his team's three goals during a BC Hockey League game in Chilliwack on February 27.

Powell River Kings built a 3-0 lead in Chilliwack on Saturday, February 27, but ultimately earned only a single point in the second game of a weekend road trip.

Noah Eyre, Karter McNarland and Anthony Lucarelli scored for Powell River, but the Chiefs roared back with three unanswered goals in regulation time to tie the game, then added the game winner 1:54 into the extra frame.

The overtime loss earned the Kings a third out of a possible four points on the trip following a 4-1 win in Prince George the previous evening. Attendance at Chilliwack Coliseum was 2,122.

Goaltender Liam Vanderkooi turned aside 40 shots for the Kings, who were outshot 44-25.

Powell River hosts Victoria Grizzlies for a pair of BC Hockey League (BCHL) games on Friday, March 3, and Saturday, March 4. Both games start at 7 pm.
