Two out of three ain’t bad; Spruce Kings complete Trail triple-header with 4-2 victory

Owen Goodbrand picked the right time to go on a hot streak with his new team.

The 18-year-old from Waterdown, Ontario lit the lamp for the second time in as many games, giving the Prince George Spruce Kings a 4-2 victory over the Trail Smoke Eaters on Sunday.

This capped off a rare weekend triple-header for both teams at the Kopar Memorial Arena, which saw 1,103 fans attend the matinee finale.

After falling behind 2-1 at the 9:17 mark of the second period, the Spruce Kings scored a trio of unanswered goals to earn their 20th victory of the season.

A pair of Cariboo Cougar grads connected on the game-tying marker as John Herrington found Linden Makow who buried his 9th of the season past Smoke Eaters netminder Teagan Kendrick.

Less than two minutes later, Herrington set up the game-winner finding overeager Jake Schneider.

Jack Stockfish provided the insurance marker less than a minute for the Spruce Kings.

Jordan Fairlie stopped 27 of 29 Trail shots as the PG improved to 20-14-2-1, eight points ahead of the Smoke Eaters (15-17-2-3) in the Interior Conference.

Ethan Mann and Connor Seely scored in defeat for Trail.

The Spruce Kings head to the Kootenays for a three-game road trip starting Friday in Cranbrook against the Bucks (25-10-1-1).

From there, PG will renew acquaintances with Trail on Saturday from the Cominco Arena before wrapping things up Sunday afternoon against the Salmon Arm Silverbacks (19-14-3-1).
