If only fans could have seen the Kamloops Storm in action on opening weekend.

The Kootenay International Junior Hockey League club posted two overtime victories, the second a 3-2 triumph over the North Okanagan Knights (0-1-1-0) on Sunday in Armstrong.

Owen Barrow tallied the OT winner three minutes and 19 seconds into the extra frame.

Lex Friesen and Branden Toye also had goals for Kamloops (2-0-0-0) in support of goaltender Jakob Drapeau, who stopped 20 shots to pick up the victory.

Zakery Anderson scored in overtime to lift Kamloops to a 3-2 win over the Chase Heat on Friday at McArthur Island Sport and Event Centre.

COVID-19 regulations kept fans away from the arenas on the weekend.

The Heat (1-0-1-0) will play host to the Storm on Saturday at Art Holding Memorial Arena.
