Sicamous Eagles fans were treated to a nail-biter of a game Friday night, that ended with the home team earning a 6-5 overtime win over the Princeton Posse.

Scoring in the Feb. 3 game didn’t get underway until the last five minutes of the first period, when the Posse potted a power-play conversion. The Eagles responded with goals at 1:14, by Ty Tippett off Aaron Plessis and Wesley Howerton, and at 0:21 by Dominic Dumas off Kade Holodniuk and Jordan Bautista.

Second period saw the Posse add another single within the first minute. But the Eagles, undeterred, kept up the pressure on the Princeton end, taking advantage of the Posse’s penalties to add two more goals the first at 14:37 by Alex Astasiewicz off Matthias Urbanski and Dumas, and the second, an unassisted marker, by Dumas. In the last two minutes of the period, Dumas added another goal for the Eagles, giving the team a 5-2 lead going into the third period.

In the final frame, penalty calls against the Eagles, including a 10-minute game misconduct for Ben Schoenfeld, a two-minute slashing call for Ryan Ignace and a two-minute cross-checking call for Urbanski, gave the Posse the man-advantage needed to put themselves back in the game, potting three goals before the end of regular play. But the Posse’s hopes were crushed at 51 seconds in overtime, when Dumas earned the hat trick off Jayce Woodley and Eric Porter.

Both teams totaled 39 shots on net, with Eagles goalie Josh Bolding stopping 34 of them.

Game first star was awarded to Dumas.

On Saturday night, the Eagles saw a reversal of fortune when they were shut out 4-0 in Kamloops by the Storm.

The Eagles played well in the first two periods, even totaling more shots on net in the second, but Storm netminder Jason Sandhu was an impenetrable wall throughout the game.

The game started to get rough in the second period and, in the third, both teams were frequenting the sin bin with calls for game misconducts, roughing, kneeing and more.

Dumas played a clean game and ended up being named the game’s second star.
