McMillan’s fourth earns Mustangs point

Vernon Watkin Motor Mustangs get last-minute goal to tie West Kelowna 7-7

They came in undefeated. And both teams left undefeated.

The host Vernon Watkin Motors Mustangs snuck out of Kal Tire Place Sunday with a hard-fought 7-7 tie with the West Kelowna Warriors in Okanagan Mainline Tier 2 Pee Wee Hockey League action.

The Mustangs trailed the Warriors 7-6 with less than 30 seconds remaining when centre JJ Milne won a draw forward to the red-hot Deagan McMillan, who split the defenders and notched his fourth goal of the contest to earn the draw.

“We drew it up on the bench,” said Mustangs head coach Taylor Wilson. “JJ won the draw and Deags got the puck. Luckily one of the defenders toe-picked but the boys nailed it.”

Milne added a goal and assist while Brayden Schwaerzle and Ryder De Nys notched singles. Erik Pastro chipped in with a pair of assists and Kyle Wheeler, Logan Killingbeck and Zac Milne had single helpers.

Next action for the Mustangs is against Kamloops on Saturday, 12:15 p.m., at Kal Tire Place.

The South Zone clipped the North Zone Kings 5-4 in Midget Tier 1 play Saturday at Civic Arena.

Dawson Chase supplied 1+2 for the Kings, while Nic Teale and Eric Noren also converted.

The Kings upended the first-place Central Zone (Kelowna) 3-1 in other action.

Caden Bracken, Mason Robinson and Chase, into an empty net, handled the North Zone offence in front of a superb Caleb Mitchell, who made two late huge stops.

The Sun Valley Source for Sports Bantam Tier 3 Vipers split a pair of Bantam Tier 3 games.

The Vipers opened the weekend by smothering the Castlegar Rebels 11-0 with Chris Reinhardt, Bennett Kuhnlein, Cash Anderson, Reilly Teager and Chris Bond each counting two goals and Nolan Thomas getting a single.

Parker Stadnyk and Mason Bueckert shared the shutout, while defencemen Brock Holliday, Bryce Lauer and Tyler Burke were stellar in shutdown roles.

Sun Valley bowed 7-1 to the first-place Penticton Vees Sunday with Reinhardt connecting on a beakaway goal for the game’s first snipe.
