Rockets sweep three game weekend with double OT win against Coyotes

The Golden Rockets ended a perfect weekend with a win over the Osoyoos Coyotes.



The Golden Rockets saved their most exciting ending of a three game weekend for the last game as they edged the Osoyoos Coyotes in a rare Sunday afternoon affair.

Both teams played tight checking in the game and only managed one goal a piece heading into the third period.

Midway through the final period Ian Desrosier nabbed a short handed goal to give the Rockets a 2-1 lead.

The back an forth play continued as the period continued but finally the Coyotes tied up the game

The lead was short lived as Rockets forward Jacob Bergeron score to retake the lead 35 seconds later. But the Coyotes would not go away and tied things up once again sending the game into overtime.

The first overtime did not settle anything even though the Rockets did have a two minute power play midway through the extra period.

It seemed as if the game was heading for a shootout until Keith Wake broke away from the rest of the players on the ice and scored with only 21 seconds left in the second overtime period.

Ty Davidson said he was very happy with the way the team played on the weekend.

“I never complain about three wins. We played very well this week and battled hard. We relinquished the lead a couple of times (against the Coyotes) which you never want to do. But credit to us, we didn’t crumble and we got right back on the horse and started going again,” he said.
