The Sicamous Eagles landed two impressive victories last week in home-ice action versus the Kimberly Dynamiters and the Kamloops Storm.

On Friday, the Eagles enjoyed a hard-earned 5-2 win against the Dynamiters.

Sicamous was quick to light up the board in the first frame with a goal at 17:03 from Steven Powers, aided by Brendon Wilde. About two minutes later, it was teammate Brendan Devries’ turn to ripple the Kimberly mesh, with an assist from Connor Fynn and Jagger Bowles. Kimberly was able to get the puck by Sicamous netminder Jack Surgenor at 8:34. Sicamous’ Connor Buick potted the final goal of the period, aided by Brett Trofanenko, to give the team a 3-1 lead going into the second period.

Kimberly’s second goal came at the half-point in the second frame, but that small victory was quickly eclipsed by a power-play goal from Eagle Matt Reed, assisted by Jameson Stoski. Buick put in the last goal of the period, and the evening, with help from Brad Crump and Trofanenko.

The game’s first, second and third stars went to Buick, Trofanenko and Powers, respectively.

A similar scene played out on Feb. 5, when the Storm evaporated before the Sicamous audience, and wound up on the losing end  of a 6-3 tally.

After an early Kamloops marker, Sicamous was quick to find the hole in their netminder’s glove. Goals came fast and furious from Devries, Stoski, Bowles, and two from Matt Reed. Assists were by Fynn, Bowles, Wilde, Powers, Devries, Stewart Coyle and Corbin Marcotte.

The final Sicamous goal, that followed two from Kamloops in the second frame, came courtesy of Connor Buick on a power play with a little under two-minutes left on the clock. Once again, the third period saw no scoring.

Reed, Bowles and Marcotte were named the game’s first, second and third stars.

Sicamous’ next game is an away affair on Feb. 8, when they’ll face off against the Princeton Posse.
