The Sicamous Eagles didn’t disappoint home fans Saturday when they earned a 3-2 win versus guests the Golden Rockies.

Scoring began about midway through the first frame with a power-play conversion by Nathan Grieve, assisted by Bobby Jo Love and Nicholas Astasiewicz. A couple minutes later Golden replied with a marker by Salmon Arm product Brett Hanna.

The Rockets added another goal at the halfway mark in the second frame. But, with 43 seconds left on the clock, Braby Crabtree converted the power play to tie the game before the buzzer. Assists were by Riley Jepson and Hayden Orton.

With less than five minutes left in the third period, Orton potted the final marker of the game, assisted by Crabtree and Jepson, giving Sicamous the win.

The previous evening, the Eagles were in Invermere where they came out on the losing end of a 3-2 tally versus the Columbia Valley Rockets.

Sicamous’ single was scored at 3:37 in the third frame on a power play by Matthew Maetche, assisted by Darien Head and Carter Hansen.

The Eagles will be on the ice tonight, Nov. 13 in Armstrong to take on the North Okanagan Knights. They’ll be back in Sicamous on Nov. 15 to face the Kamloops Storm. After that, their next game won’t be until Nov. 22, back in Sicamous to  do battle with the 100 Mile House Wranglers.
