Heat cook up third KIJHL win

The Chase Chiefs knock off KIJHL-leading Kamloops Storm in OT.

The Chase Chiefs will head into the Christmas break with a little extra holiday cheer after they knocked off the top team in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League.

Vernon’s Jared Suetter chipped in with a goal and an assist as the Chiefs iced the host Kamloops Storm 5-4 in double-overtime Sunday night to record their third win of the season.

Issac Willard netted the OT winner with 20 seconds to play, helping Chase come back from an early 3-0 deficit.

Suetter, who opened the Heat offence on a second-period powerplay, assisted on Armstrong native Owen Barker’s goal with seven minutes in regulation to force OT.

The 3-27-1 Heat are 2-7-1 in the last 10 games. Kamloops is 25-6-1-4 overall, and 3-4-1-2 in their last 10.
