Osoyoos Coyotes are a confident bunch as they prepare to host the Revelstoke Grizzlies this evening at the Sun Bowl.
The Yotes enter the match holding home-ice advantage in the KIJHL Okanagan/Shuswap championship after taking one of two games in Revelstoke over the weekend.
“They’re very confident going into tonight’s game,” said head coach Ken Law of his players. “We studied the (weekend) video and realized it was us giving them the goals, not them earning them. We just have to take care of the mistakes that we made.”
The Coyotes won 4-3 in overtime Saturday evening, but fell 3-2 Sunday. In both games, the Yotes had to overcome early lapses — and two-goal Revelstoke leads.
“That’s something we addressed in our team meeting,” said Law. “We have to be ready to go from the drop of the puck.”
The Coyotes can take a stranglehold on the semi-final series with wins tonight and Wednesday. A loss, however, would return home-ice advantage to Revelstoke for the final three games.
Game time this evening is 7:35 p.m. Walk-up tickets will be available for sale.
Meanwhile, in the Kootenay Conference, the Nelson Leafs will look to take a 3-1 series lead on Kimberley when they host the Dynamiters this evening. Nelson scored a 4-3 win Monday evening playing at home.
