Solid effort not enough for Eagles
It certainly wasn’t a lack of effort that put the Sicamous Eagles on the losing end of two home games last weekend.
Sicamous’ Connor Fynn was first to light up the board near the halfway mark of the first period in play against the Kamloops Storm Friday night. The goal, scored on a power play with help from Brett Bretitkreuz and Jameson Stoski, would be the only one for the Eagles throughout the game. The Storm struck back minutes later on a power play. Neither team was able to find the back of the net in the second, putting the heat on both teams to break the tie in the third. Kamloops did just that with two, back-to-back goals near the end of the period.
A similar scenario played out on the evening of Saturday, Oct. 22, when the Eagles suffered a 4-2 loss to the North Okanagan Knights. For the second night in a row, Sicamous had twice as many opportunities to score, but the team’s only goals (the final two of the contest) came in the second frame, courtesy of Stoski and Corbin Marcotte, with two assists by Kory Movold and two by Brad Robinson.
The Eagles’ next game is in Golden on Friday, Oct. 28, when they take on the Rockets.
