Coyotes 2 Rebels 1

An exciting first game of the KIJHL finals here in Osoyoos saw the Coyotes sneak away a 2-1 victory in front of a franchise-high 675 fans at SunBowl Arena. CJ Kort scored the eventual game-winner, against the run of play, midway through the second period.

Stefan Jensen's first-period deflection was the only other Osoyoos goal, while Stuart Walton replied for the Rebels.

Both goaltenders played very well tonight: Kyle Laslo made 25 saves and was named the game's third star, while Alex Ross stopped 23 shots and was the second star of the night.

I hope those of you who tuned in on Mountain FM enjoyed the game tonight, it was fun to appear as an intermission guest and Jonny and I will likely do another bit at some point tomorrow.

Despite the malaise of Blackberry keyboards, stay tuned for your usual gameday package tomorrow morning. This is shaping up to be a KIJHL finals to remember!
