PG Blows Out Chiefs 7-3

Chilliwack (Josh Olund BCIT Radio A&E) – After winning two games against the Merritt Centennials,the Chilliwack Chiefs came into Friday against the Prince George Spruce Kings just one point behind the top spot of the Chilliwack Pod division.

However, the Chiefs’ winning streak would come to an end as they would drop to the Kings for a third straight time by a score of 7-3.At the start of the game, the scoring started early as the Chiefs would get the opening goal in the first period from Jackson Munro to make it 1-0just 85 seconds into the game.But the Kings wouldn’t let the Chiefs have the lead for now as Mason White scored for the Kings to tie the game up 1-1 at 5:41 of the first.Later in the period, the Kings would strike again off a goal from Carter Cochrane at 12:22 to takea 2-1 lead, which would stay that way until the intermission.

In the second period, the scoring wouldn’t start to come up after the halfway point, as the Chiefs would tie the game 2-2 on the powerplay at 12:56 of a goal from Tanner Andrew.However, just 60 seconds later, the Kings would capitalize on a shorthanded opportunity from Andrew Seaman to make it 3-2 Kings.And with less than a minute to go in the second, the Kings would get one more goal before the end of the period as Seaman would score his second goal of the game with just 28 seconds left on the powerplay to make it 4-2 Kings.

In the third, the Kings offence would continue to be poured on as the Kings would begin the scoring in the final frame. This time from Colton Cameron at 4:14 to make it 5-2.A little over two minutes later, the Kings would score again from a goal by Corey Cunningham at6:29 to make it 6-2 for the Kings.The Chiefs though would end up getting another goal just a little over the halfway mark from team captain Kyle Penney at 10:44 to lessen the Kings lead to 6-3.But the Kings would add one more goal from Cunningham’s second goal of the game at 13:35to make it a four-goal lead again and that’s how it would go as the final score was 7-3 Kings.

With the loss to the Kings, the Chiefs are now 10-6-0and are now three points behind the Kings for the top spot in the Chilliwack Pod, which is even more impactful as the BCHL announced last Tuesday, April 27, there will be no playoffs and the teams who finish on top of their division will win divisional championships.

The next Chiefs game will be on Sunday, May 2, against the Merritt Centennials at 5:00 PM in Chilliwack.
