The Sicamous Eagles had little to celebrate this weekend after dropping two games by the skin of their teeth.

Neither the Eagles nor guests the Chase Heat could break the 3-3 tie in overtime Saturday night. The first frame ended with the Heat leading 2-1. Devyn Myck scored the single for Sicamous (assisted by Justin Wilde) late in the frame, lifting the team’s spirit going into the second. Darien Blight tied the game at 19 in the second period with an unassisted marker. Riley Jepson added a power-play conversion at 15:05, with assists by Sam Subert and Korwin Shewchuk. Scoring stopped at the halfway point when Chase added their final goal of the evening.

Darien Blight was named the game’s first star.

The Eagles hosted, and lost to the 100 Mile House Wranglers on Sunday. The final score: 1-0. That single came in the last two minutes of the first period in a power play. Earning second-star honours was Sicamous netminder Patrick Kasper, who stopped every shot but one (29 in total).

The Eagles are back on home ice on Nov. 25, when they welcome back the Revelstoke Grizzlies.
