Missed chances hurt the Summerland Steam against the Osoyoos Coyotes in a 4-0 loss at the Summerland Arena Tuesday night.

All the offence came in the final 20 minutes as the Coyotes, 24-7-0-0-1, spread the gap between them and the Steam, 21-11-0-0-1, to six points in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League standings.

“For two periods I thought we did all right,” said Steam coach John DePourcq. “You know eventually when you play against a team like Osoyoos that has pretty good offensive players, if you keep taking penalties, it’s going to come back and bite you.”

The Coyotes went two-for-eight on the man advantage. The Coyotes scored the lone goal needed 3:17 into the third as Bobby LaRue finished a play from Ryan Morrell and Daniel Stone. Trailing 1-0, Steam defenceman Calvin Hadley had a chance to even things, but he put a backhand shot off the crossbar from in close. Eight minutes after their first goal, the Coyotes scored another power-play this time by Jackson Glimpel set up by Morrell and Stone.

The Coyotes iced the game on goals by Braeden Tuck and LaRue, who pounced on a rebound that hit the glass behind the goal.

“Unfortunately when we had more of the chances the first two periods and we don’t capitalize, you put pressure on yourself towards the end of the game,” said DePourcq. “The puck definitely went Osoyoos’ way there in the third. We got to learn from it. We will be better.”

“I thought we played really well. It was definitely one of our more solid 60 minutes,” said Coyotes captain Rainer Glimpel. “Usually we have a couple of mental lapses. Today I think we really came back with a lot of effort. Solesy (Brett Soles), our goalie was unbelievable. Gotta give him credit.”

The Coyotes goalie made 27 saves for his fourth shutout of the season.

Glimpel said with the teams meeting again at the Osoyoos Sun Bowl at 7:35 p.m. tonight, he wants to see more of the same.

“A hard, solid, shut down game and capitalize on our opportunities,” he said. “We can’t give them any extra points. Have to play them hard every time.”
