Late in the second frame, Kamloops took the lead by adding two more markers. Later, in the first half of the third period, the Storm added two more goals. Near the 10-minute mark, Sicamous’ Nathan Grieve and Matthew Maetche added a goal each, with assists from Nicholas Astasiewicz, Derek Miskiman and Gerun. Kamloops added one more goal before the buzzer.
On Saturday, Oct. 26, the Eagles overcame the determined Kimberly Dynamiters with a 3-1 victory.

The Dynamiters tied things up in the second period.
An early third-period marker from Maetche put Sicamous back in the lead, with assists by Hayden Orton and Carter Hansen. And, with 19 seconds on the clock, Grieve potted an unassisted marker assuring Sicamous the win.
