Princeton Posse drop weekend matches

The Princeton Posse dropped both their weekend Kootenay International Junior Hockey League games

The Princeton Posse dropped both their weekend Kootenay International Junior Hockey League games losing to the Kamloops Storm and Kelowna Chiefs.

On Friday the Posse came out flat and were down 3-0 by the end of the first period to the Storm.

Josh Mack and Curtis Klinger each notched goals in the second period to turn things around for the Posse and cut the lead to just one goal. A goal by Eric Kubis in the third evened things up for the teams and then Kurtis Coburn put the Posse ahead.

A butt-end call against Brayden Horcoff left the Posse short a player and the Storm capitalized. Two quick powerplay goals, less than 60 seconds apart, put the Storm back on top.

The Posse could not get back on the scoreboard despite peppering 17 shots on Storm goaltender Ben Geisbrecht who was brought in as relief after the Posse went ahead.

The Chiefs exacted revenge on a 4-3 loss at the Posse home opener,  by shutting out the Posse 6-0 on Sunday.

Discipline once again set back the Posse who let all three goals in while on the penalty kill. The Chiefs didn’t get on the board until the second period when they went up 3-0, two of those scored on the powerplay. The third saw much of the same with

The Posse currently sit in fourth overall in the KIJHL when on the powerplay. In nineteen opportunities they have capitalized on five of them. On the flip side, they have had 10 goals scored against them when they have taken a penalty, putting them near the bottom of the KIJHL. Leading the squad in scoring so far is rookie Devan Suldy with five points in just as many games and Kurtis Klinger who has four points in five games.

The Posse hit the road to play the Summerland Steam (3-2-0-0) on Friday then return to face the Osoyoos Coyotes (2-3-0-0) at home on Sunday for a matinee at 2 p.m.
