Coyotes sweep ‘home’ pair in Quesnel

Osoyoos Coyotes scored a pair of wins “at home” on the road this weekend, dropping the Kamloops Storm twice in Quesnel.

The Yotes (18-7-1), playing before a friendly contingent of around 600 each night, beat the Storm (10-18-1) 3-1 Friday evening and 6-2 Saturday.

With Quesnel being equidistant between Osoyoos and Terrace — from where many Coyotes hail — family and friends from BC’s northwest travelled to watch the games played in the 1,200-seat West Fraser Arena.

Eight Coyotes call Terrace or Prince Rupert home; they played a substantial role in the team’s victories this weekend, scoring eight of the club’s nine goals.

Coyotes 6, Kamloops 2

Sam Reinbolt scored twice and added an assist as the Coyotes wrapped up the two-game sweep Saturday evening.

Carter Robinson, Connor Onstein, Carter Shannon and Judd Repole also scored for the Coyotes, who led 3-0 after 20 minutes, and 4-1 after 40.

Daniel Paul scored the win, stopping 32 of 34 shots. The Coyotes put 31 shots on the Kamloops netminders.

Coyotes 3, Kamloops 1

After enduring a 630-km bus ride Friday, the Coyotes opened the weekend series with a 3-1 win.

Carter Shannon, Colin Bell and Brandon Onstein scored for the Coyotes.

Liam Aitken earned the win, stopping 17 of 18 shots.

The team is expected back in Osoyoos today. The Coyotes visit  Princeton ( 13-11-1-3) Dec. 13, playing the Posse in a rare noon start.
