The Osoyoos Coyotes began their road trip to Revelstoke and Sicamous without a loss in regulation time. However, by the end of the northern venture, they had two such defeats, one of which included an embarrassing 9-4 setback to the Eagles on Saturday night.
Things got off to a promising start as late first period tallies by Ryan Bester and Ethan McKinley staked the Coyotes to a 2-0 lead. The second period was when it all started to unravel, with Osoyoos giving up five goals.
Too much time in the penalty box and problems in the defensive zone continue to be an issue. The Eagles scored three times on the powerplay, while also adding a shorthanded goal.
Ryan Bester, with his second of the game, as well as Jack Henderson, had the other Osoyoos markers.
Starting goaltender Tanner Johnson was pulled after the fifth Sicamous goal, with Kenneth Marquart allowing four more in relief.
The Eagles held a 42-38 edge in shots, handing the Coyotes their first two game losing streak of the season and dropping them into a first place tie with Summerland atop the Bill Ohlhausen Division.
Osoyoos will have all week to make adjustments before hosting the Chase Heat on Friday night (November 19th) at 7:35 at the Sun Bowl Arena.
