The 100 Mile House Wranglers took 3 out of a possible 4 points this weekend on home ice.
Friday night they got past Golden with a 4-3 shootout win then Saturday night the Wranglers lost by the same score, again in a shootout with North Okanagan.
Head Coach Dale Hladun said overall he was more than happy with the how the team played and is playing of late.
“The weekend previous in Beaver Valley and Castlegar we walked out of there with a couple of points forcing overtime and shootouts and it seemed to have followed us up here because it was overtime and shootouts again. We’ve been working on 3 on 3 late in practices and shootouts because we have to figure out a way to get that extra point.”
Looking back to last year at this point in their schedule Hladun said were they are exactly the same.
“We only had 5 wins to December fifth last year and in the back half of the season we had 12 wins so I can see it going the same way. Even then, early in the start of the season so many of our losses where by one goal, now at least we’re in overtime in those one goal games. Hopefully the next phase is we’re the one goal games and locking the door down.”
Up next for the Wranglers are a couple of home games Friday (December 8) and Saturday (December 9) nights against the Revelstoke Grizzlies.
“In the standings we are absolutely in the toughest Division in the K-I-J-H-L. Whether we play Revelstoke, Kamloops, or Sicamous, it’s going to be a tough series,” Hladun said.
