West Kelowna defeats Powell River Kings in overtime

Warriors come back from three one-goal deficits, stop visitor's winning streak

West Kelowna Warriors came from behind a trio of times to halt the visiting Powell River Kings’ three-game winning streak on Friday, October 29.

Powell River led in each period, but the home team equalized on all three occasions. The game was tied 1-1 after 20 minutes, 2-2 after period two, and 3-3 at the end of regulation time.

Kings were unable to convert on a power play that began with 26 seconds remaining in the third period and carried over into overtime. Warriors forward Marcus Jouhgin scored the game-winning goal with only 11 seconds remaining in the extra frame, beating Kings’ goaltender Zak Brice, who stopped 37 of the 41 shots he faced on the night.

Powell River directed 38 shots at West Kelowna goalie Johnny Derrick.

Sam Belanger opened the scoring for Powell River while shorthanded in the first period, assisted by Aaron Neal, who gave his team another lead midway through period two after being set up by Ethan Riesterer and Nic Porchetta.

Casey Aman drew the assist on Mark D’Agostino’s fourth goal of the BC Hockey League (BCHL) season, which came on a third period power play with just under seven minutes remaining. West Kelowna forced overtime three minutes later, also with an extra attacker on the ice.

Attendance at Royal LePage Place was 750.

Kings play one more game away from home, at Penticton on Saturday, October 30 (6 pm), before returning to Hap Parker Arena. 

Powell River hosts Chilliwack for a pair of games on November 5 and 6. Faceoff for both is 7 pm.
