They may have been knocked off their winning streak, but the Sicamous Eagles haven’t been knocked off their game.

They may have been knocked off their winning streak, but the Sicamous Eagles haven’t been knocked off their game.

Sicamous earned two wins and one tie over the weekend,  showing their recent 6-1 defeat by the North Okanagan Knights had little lasting negative impact.

The first win came Friday, Oct. 19, and was an 8-0 shutout vs. guests, the Chase Heat.

With a power play advantage in the first frame, Cameron Berry was first to light up the board, assisted by Collin Mathieson. A minute later, Brendan Devries scored with assists by Brayden Taekema and Kelyn Opel.

Devries put in the sole goal of the second frame, aided by Berry and Taekema, and then added two more to the Eagles’ tally in the third – both assisted by Opel and Steven Powers. Berry potted the next goal, as well as the final goal of the evening, with Jameson Stoski tallying one in between.

Devries was named the game’s first star, Berry second, and Eagle netminder Jack Surgenor was named third star.

On Saturday, Oct. 20 in Kamloops, the Eagles found themselves at a 4-4 impasse vs. the Kamloops Storm.

Kamloops scored twice in the first period but Sicamous was able to tie the game up before the buzzer. Two goals came from Devries and Berry, aided by Opel and Powers.

Berry found the back of the Kamloops net early in the second frame. The Storm responded near the half-mark on a power play. But Berry, assisted by Connor Buick, was able to give the Eagles a one-goal advantage before the period’s end. This was tied up early in the third period and neither team was able to get the edge in overtime.

Berry was named first star while Kris Joyce received third-star honours.

The Eagles wrapped up the weekend with a 3-1 victory against hosts the Castlegar Rebels.

Despite a strong offence from the Rebels, Sicamous was first on the board at 14:37 in the first period. The goal, by Taekema, would be the only one by either team until the third period, where two Sicamous goals, one by Opel and the other by Taekema, sandwiched the single from Castlegar.

Joyce and Taekema were named first and third star, respectively.

This weekend’s games put the Eagles in second place in their division, behind the Knights, and third place in the KIJHL. Their next match is a  home game on Saturday, Oct. 27, vs the Chase Heat. Game time is 7 p.m.
