The Sicamous Eagles are tied at the top spot in their division following Saturday’s win over the Chase Heat.
That contest was a close-matched, back-and-forth affair on the Heat’s ice. Sicamous was first to light up the board with a marker early in the first period by Korwin Shewchuk, assisted by Braydon McCarthy and Sam Subert. The Heat tied things up at 13:13, and the score remained at 1-1 until the period’s end. Sicamous earned the advantage in the second period with three goals scored before the halfway mark. First up was a power-play conversion by Owen Rowsell, assisted by Ben Campbell and Tristan Sailor. McCarthy was the next to score, aided by Nathan Plessis and Arlyn Semeschuk. The third goal was an unassisted, short-handed goal by Carter Hansen.
Chase added a single before the buzzer, and another early in the third, and the game ended in a 4-3 win for Sicamous.
On Friday, the Eagles were on the losing side of a 3-2 decision versus the Kelowna Chiefs. Rowsell potted both of the Sicamous markers in the first period.
