The 100 Mile House Wranglers defeated the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League (KIJHL) champions, the Revelstoke Grizzlies, on Nov. 16.

It wasn’t until the eleventh minute that the Wranglers scored with Darian Long tying up the game from a Kolby Page pass. Revelstoke answered around five minutes later through an unassisted goal from Gerrit Lindhout. However, it was quickly answered by Garrett Hunter of the Wranglers, ending the second period 2-2.

The third period was where the Wranglers really shone, scoring two powerplay goals a minute apart, through Long and Jackson Kowblock. Darian Long finished his hattrick with a shorthanded goal in the dying minutes of the game.
