Dynamiters dominate on Eagles’ ice

Eagles enjoy 4-1 win over Posse before dropping an 8-0 contest to Kimberley.

The Sicamous Eagles received a sharp dose of humility Sunday night when they got schooled 8-0 by the Kimberley Dynamiters.

Eagles general manager Wayne March said team injuries received during Saturday night’s home game versus the Princeton Posse, and Kimberley’s veteran lineup, were factors in the shutout, adding that’s no excuse, “we should have played better.”

“They’re a young team, they’re going to get schooled once in a while and that’s OK. It gets your heads out of the clouds,” said March.

Friday’s game was a far more positive experience, with the Eagles earning a 4-1 win versus the Posse. Eagles veterans Alex Astasiewicz and Brad Whitehead potted goals in the second frame, with assists by Nathan Plessis, Astasiewicz and rookie William Mizuik.

In the third period, Astasiewicz potted his second goal of the evening, this time off Plessis and Danny O’Donnell. Arlyn Semeschuk added the unassisted game winner in the last minute and seven seconds of the frame.
