North Okanagan Knights bounce Grand Forks Bruins

Captain Steve Panatazopoulos and Matty Saharchuk each fired a pair of goals as the North Okanagan Knights iced the Grand Forks Border Bruins 5-2 in Kootenay International Junior Hockey League play Friday night at Nor-Val Centre.

With North Okanagan up 5-0,  netminder Austin Buzzell (18 saves) looked primed to record his second shutout, however a pair of Bruins’ call-ups – Monty Chisholm and Ryan Lawson – scored 17 seconds apart with just over two minutes to play. Connor Richards opened the scoring for the 27-11-1-2 Knights on a first-period powerplay. The last-place Bruins (5-32-0-3) have lost eight straight.

North Okanagan visited the Chase Heat (9-26-3-2) Saturday. They host the 24-8-2-4 Sicamous Eagles Wednesday at Nor-Val.
