Last night, at the Sun Bowl, the Coyotes out-gunned the Princeton Posse 4-1. That followed a 2-1 overtime win in Kelowna Friday evening.
“We had a real good week of practice and the guys were focused,” said Coyotes coach Ken Law. “We’re trying to work with a lot more speed and moving the puck.”
Sam Reinbolt, Daniel Stone, Hunter Johnson and Judd Repole scored for Osoyoos Saturday evening. Owen Reith countered for Princeton.
The Coyotes outshot the Posse 51-32.
Friday evening, Carter Shannon got the game-winner at 16:15 in the first overtime frame. Ryan Roseboom also scored for the Coyotes, who trailed 1-0 until late in the third period.
“That was probably are most complete 60 minutes of end-to-end hockey,” Law said after Friday’s game. ”
The Chiefs outshot the Coyotes 29-25.
The Coyotes sit second in the KIJHL’s Okanagan Division, four points back of Summerland. Osoyoos, however, has three games in hand on the Steam.
