Sicamous Eagles netminder Chris Kingdon was a force to be reckoned with Wednesday night during play against rivals the Revelstoke Grizzlies.

While Sicamous was on the losing end of the 3-2 home game decision, little fault could be placed on Kingdon, who stopped 55 out of 58 shots on net (compared to 23 from the Eagles), and received first star for the contest.

Sicamous was first to light up the board in the first period with a power-play goal from Jean-Luc Fournier, assisted by Corbin Marcotte. The team’s second goal was on a power play in the second frame, courtesy of Brock McDonald, assisted by Drew Nikirk.

Third-star honours went to McDonald.

On Saturday, the Eagles celebrated a 3-2 win against guests the Princeton Posse.

Eagle David Harrison potted the sole goal of the first frame, assisted by McDonald and Jung Ahn.

The second frame saw a Penticton goal sandwiched by power-play goals from McKay and Andrew Nunn, with assists going to Steven Powers, Brad Robinson and Easton Bodeux. Penticton was able to tip one past the posts in the second half of the third frame, but nothing more.

First, second and third stars went to Harrison, McKay and Nunn, respectively.

Sicamous hosts the North Okanagan Knights tonight at the rec centre and, on Friday, they’re after the rebound against hosts the Revelstoke Grizzlies.
