WRANGLERS CORRAL POSSE AT HOME
Princeton Posse hosted 100 Mile House Wranglers November 21st and it didn’t take long for the visiting team to get on the scoreboard.
Justin Bond scored the first goal of the night at 17:05 of the first frame. Assistance came from Brandon Howard and Liam Cumberbirch. Bond is no stranger to Princeton Arena having watched his older brother Kurtis in the building when he played for the Posse. The elder Bond went to 100 Mile House when the team entered the KIJHL.
The Wranglers added to their lead at 14:36 with a goal scored by Brett Harris. He was helped by Todd Bredo and Kolten Carpenter.
Although the Posse had fired twice as many shots on goal in the period as did the Wranglers (14-7) the Wranglers had twice as many goals than the Posse (2-0) after the first period of play.
The second period started off with another goal by the Wranglers at 15:07 (Brett Harris from Todd Bredo and Michael Lynch).
Princeton’s first goal of the game came at 12:53. Credit went to Cody Lassiter who was assisted on the play by Morton Johnston and Thomas Cankovic.
The Wranglers came back late in the period popping in two more goals in the span of five seconds. The first was at 2:06 (Justin Bond from Brett Harris and Kolten Carpenter) and the other one at 2:01 (Alex Hanson from Kolby Page and Nick McCabe).
After two periods the Posse had out shot 100 Mile House 24-12 but the scoreboard showed the Wranglers leading Princeton 5-1.
The only goal scored in the third period was for Princeton. Morton Johnston got it at 2:55 with assists going to Thomas Cankovic and Keith Comte.
