Chilliwack, BC – September 16, 2011

The Merritt Centennials improved to a BCHL-best 5-0 in the exhibition season with a 2-1 over Chilliwack Friday night at Prospera Centre.

Mike Berry opened the scoring for the Chiefs on a power play at 17:25 of the first period. The Cents outshot Chilliwack 9-6 in the opening frame.

Jakob Reichert pulled the Centennials even at the 15:09 mark of the second period with assists to Richard Sabourin and Sean Maktaak. Shots in the middle frame were 12-4 Chiefs.

With 7:15 to go in the third period, Reichert scored his second of the night from Tyler Martin and the Cents would hang on for the eventual 2-1 victory.

Lino Chimienti went the distance in goal for Merritt, making 23 saves in the win. Mitch Gillam played the entire game for Chilliwack, kicking out 22 shots.

The Cents went 0-for-5 on the power play and the Chiefs were 1-for-5 on their man advantages.
