The Summerland Steam took to the ice on Sunday afternoon in Armstrong to face the North Okanagan Knights and finish up their weekend.

On Friday night the Steam downed the Princeton Posse by a score of 6-2 thanks to a pair of goals from Kienan Scott along with singles from Josh Dacosta, Riley Hunt, Dylan Burton, and Cooper Holick.

Brett Huber was solid when called upon against the Posse, stopping 23 shots in the win.

On Sunday afternoon Darren Hogg took to the net for the Steam, and was solid in making 29 saves on 31 Knights’ shots to pick up a 4-2 win and two more points for the Steam.

The Knights got up early in the game on a goal from Ryan Kelm. They then got a shorthanded marker from Dennon Leibel early in the second to give the Knights a 2-0 lead. In the third the Steam stormed back, and it all started with a goal from Riley Hunt on the powerplay just 36 seconds into the third period.

Paulsen Lautard followed that up with another tally to tie the game at 2-2 just under four minutes later.

The score stayed tied at two until the final minute of the third period when Jordan Boultbee broke the tie in Summerland’s favour with :55 to go. Lautard then iced it with an empty netter just :35 seconds later to round out the scoring at 4-2 in favour of the Summerland Steam.

The Steam’s week starts early next week as they travel to Princeton for a Tuesday night matchup with the Posse. They then return to the Nor-Val Arena on Friday night to face the North Okanagan Knights once again.

The Steam return home on Jan. 24 when they host the Princeton Posse at 7:30 p.m.
