Newbie Jack Berger delivered a big goal for the North Okanagan Knights Friday night at the Nov-Val Sports Centre.

Obtained from the Creston Thunder Cats last week, the big 17-year-old centre scored at 7:38 of the third period as the Knights brushed back the Posse 4-2 in Kootenay International Hockey League play before 230 fans.

“It was an unbelievable solo effort,” said Knights head coach Bryant Perrier. “There was a turnover in the neutral zone and he did the Gino Malkin around the net stuff it in it thing.”

Drayton Martin added an empty-netter with 45 seconds left as the Knights improved to 7-20-1-4. They hold down the fourth and final playoff spot in the Doug Birks Division, four points up on the 7-21-0-1 Posse. The same two teams meet today in Princeton.

“We’ve been patient with this group as we rebuild and when you start winning, you start believing,” said Perrier. “This group works hard in practice and they listen on how to prepare for games.”

Defenceman Patrick Nicholson, who played for the Vipers Wednesday night, and Ryan Moon, also scored for the Knights, who outshot the Posse 56-31.
