Steam welcome rival Coyotes

The Summerland Steam host the Okanagan Division-leading Osoyoos Coyotes Friday.

Injuries haven’t stopped the Summerland Steam from winning in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League.

As the Steam prepare to host the Okanagan Division-leading Osoyoos Coyotes Friday at Summerland Arena at 7:30 p.m., they are 9-1-0 in their last 10. Steam coach John DePourcq said it will be a tougher battle against the Coyotes as they have been without Jarrett Malchow, Everett Scherger, Steven Fiust, Cole Williams and captain Alex Williams. They may get some players back for that game.

“It’s an opportunity for other players to step up,” said DePourcq. “I got a good team with a lot of depth here. It’s preparation for the playoffs.”

On Tuesday, the Steam defeated the Kelowna Chiefs 3-2 in double overtime at Rutland Arena.

Wyatt Gale secured the win 14 seconds remaining in the second overtime. Levi Johnson gave the Steam a 1-0 lead at 10:41 of the first. Twenty seconds later the Chiefs tied it on a goal by Jason Village. They traded goals in the second period with Michael MacLean netting the equalizer.

“We played well last night. Always nice when you can sneak a W out,” said DePourcq.

Heading into the game, the Coyotes lead with a 34-7-0-0-1 for 69 points, while the Steam are 29-8-1-0-3 for 62 points.
