KELOWNA - A much needed win at home for Rutland’s very own Kelowna Chiefs.

Kelowna defeated their Okanagan Division rivals, the Osoyoos Coyotes 6 – 0 on home ice.

Adam Beatty (1G, 1A) got the puck rolling at 16:37 in the first period for his 4th goal of the season.  Brady Mende added one before the end of the period to make the game 2–0 for the Chiefs.

Connor DeMelo started things off between the pipes for the Chiefs, but just after their second goal, DeMelo took an elbow and was tripped, falling to the ice and suffering an injury that forced him from the game.

Tyler O’Donnell would finish off what DeMelo started as the guys split the shutout.

Meanwhile, the first period was delayed for almost 10 minutes as alarms started ringing at Rutland Arena.

In the second period, Ryan Baim, Jordan Salahor (1G, 1A) and Jagger Bowles each added a goal to make the game 5–0.

And Colton Dachwitz netted the game winner in the third for a 6–0 victory over the Osoyoos Coyotes.

The Kelowna Chiefs are back at Rutland Arena on Saturday, February 1st as they face the 100 Mile House Wranglers for the first time.
