Timely goals and string of assists from Judd Repole move Osoyoos into Round three of KIJHL playoffs

The Osoyoos Coyotes keep on rolling through the KIJHL playoffs, claiming their second straight series victory and moving on to the third round of the junior league's playoff season, the most recent success coming thanks to a game four winning goal from Prince Rupert's Judd Repole.

The series clinching marker marked one of two goals and four assists that the Rupert playmaker claimed over the four games against the Summerland Steam, a team which gave the Coyotes a good run, but couldn't find the offence required to knock off one of the top teams of the KIJHL

So far in the first two rounds of play Repole has scored four goals, assisted on six others for ten points in eight games.

A look at his stats sheet so far can be found here.

His offensive burst has him among the top Twenty Scoring leaders for the playoff run so far, with Repole's prospects of climbing higher good, as the Coyotes continue to advance.

You can review the accounts of the four games of the second round below:

Coyotes do it again - eliminate Summerland in four straight games
Coyotes come back to win 6-4 to take three game lead over Summerland
Coyotes win 2-1 to take two game lead over Summerland
Coyotes beat Summerland 5-4 in overtime to kick off series

The Coyotes will be back on the ice this weekend when Round three gets underway, with Osoyoos playing host to the Chase Heat on Saturday night in Game one of a Best of Five Conference Final.
