TWU hockey: Coyotes top Spartans

The Okanagan College Coyotes scored four unanswered goals in the final two periods to defeat the visiting Trinity Western University Spartans 6-2 in BCIHL Friday night in Kelowna.

The loss drops the Spartans to 3-8-2 on the season, while the Coyotes improve to 7-2-2.

The Spartans, despite dressing just 14 skaters for the game,  matched the Coyotes early on, but Okanagan’s Chris Glen was a one man wrecking crew as he was able to score his third goal of the period with four seconds remaining in the first period to give the Coyotes a 3-2 lead going into the first intermission.

The line of Matt Chaput, Trevor Beaupre and Brandon Long did all the scoring for the Spartans as they combined for six points, with Chaput and Beaupre scoring the goals.

Aaron Buat and Brendan Urban made it 5-2 after 40 minutes and then Kyle L'Arrivee scored the only goal of the third.

Tim Zwiers made 35 saves for Trinity Western while Sunny Gill stopped 38 of the 40 shots he faced for the Coyotes.
