Wranglers rope win over North Okanagan Knights

100 Mile House scores six times in 40 minutes, cruise to 7-3 KIJHL win over Knights

The hometown 100 Mile House Wranglers scored twice in the game’s first six minutes and rolled to a 7-3 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League win over the North Okanagan Knights Saturday in the South Cariboo.

Trailing 2-0 heading into the second period, Cade Enns got the Knights on the board at 2:04 to pull to within one, but the Wranglers then rattled off four unanswered markers to take a 6-1 lead into the final period.

Goals by Kevin-Thomas Walters at 5:18, and Cameron McKenzie at 8:14, gave the Knights a bit of life as they cut the margin to 6-3 before Darian Long scored his hattrick goal with just 25 seconds left to end the scoring.
