Sudden Death Setback Leaves Coyotes Further Behind the Posse!

Saturday night’s Bill Ohlhausen Division first place showdown in Osoyoos certainly lived up to its billing. 

After tying the game late, the Coyotes gave up a goal in overtime to lose 3-2 to Princeton.

The Posse led 1-0 after the first, however Jarrod Gale tied things just over five minutes into the second period.

Princeton went back in front 2-1 on the powerplay about three-and-a-half minutes later on the powerplay, a score that held up until the 16:41 mark of period three when Ethan McKinley buried the puck to force extra play.

Osoyoos was outshot 27-17 through 40 minutes, but that all changed in the third when the Coyotes poured it on, holding a 15-3 edge in shots, with so many opportunities to win the game during a period of complete dominance.  Osoyoos also had the first three shots of overtime, however it took just one by the Posse on a breakaway to escape with the victory.

Kenny Gerow suffered the loss in net for the (7-3-3-0) Coyotes, who fall six points back of front running Princeton, while still having played two fewer games.

The Posse hosts the second half of the home-and-home, next Friday night (Nov. 11th).
