This time the varmints came out on top.
In a tight-checking, hard-hitting battle of Wranglers and Coyotes last night, Osoyoos notched a 3-0 win over 100 Mile House.
The Coyotes scored a goal in each frame and Adam Jones earned a game star as he turned away 20 Wrangler shots to secure the shutout.
The Coyotes are now 3-0 on the early regular season — and sporting a 15-game regular season winning streak that stretches back to December 2015.
“We don’t care about that,” coach Ken Law said of the winning streak. “We lost all the important games in between.”
What Coach Law can care about is the Coyotes have now topped two of the three best teams in the KIJHL’s Doug Birks division.
Now they turn their attention to the Okanagan division, playing in Summerland Friday evening.
The Steam has handily won its first three games as well, out-scoring their opponents 17-8.
Last night, Daniel Stone, Mackenzie Wiens and Sam Reinbolt scored for the Coyotes. Colin Bell added two assists.
Stone, the Yotes captain, now has two goals and three assists on the young season.
The Coyotes outshot the Wranglers 29-20.
Friday’s game in Summerland is scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. start.
The Coyotes open their home season the following evening against the Kamloops Storm.
