Eagles feast on Coyote, rankle Wranglers over weekend

The Sicamous Eagles had themselves to thank over the Thanksgiving long weekend, when they served up a couple of wins.

The Sicamous Eagles had themselves to thank over the Thanksgiving long weekend, when they served up a couple of wins.

On Friday evening, the Eagles were at the Osoyoos Sun Bowl where they earned a 4-3 win versus the hometown Coyotes.

First to light up the Sun Bowl scoreboard was a Coyote marker delivered just after the halfway mark in the first period. With a strong Osoyoos offence, the Eagles were unable to reply until 1:06 in the frame, with a goal by Ben Campbell, assisted by Nicholas Cuglietta and Riley Cardinal.

The second period began with the teams tied one-all. Back-to-back goals for both teams at the halfway mark put the score at two-all going into the third. Sicamous’ marker came from Cardinal, with Campbell on the assist along with Devyn Myck.

Early in the third period, Sicamous’ Riley Jepson and Darien Head potted back-to-back goals, giving the team a 4-2 lead, with the Coyotes’ adding their final goal with 17 seconds left on the clock.

Eagles netminder Patrick Kasper was named the game’s second star, stopping 41 out of 44 shots on goal.

The Eagles were back in Sicamous on Saturday night to host the 100 Mile House Wranglers. The Cariboo-region competitors kept Eagles’ defence busy, but goaltender (and game first star) Olivier Charest was a wall for most of the game, letting in only one goal (a Coyotes power-play conversion) early in the second frame. Meanwhile, the Eagles’ offence was having better luck, managing one goal per period: Myck in the first period, assisted by Cardinal and Campbell; Korwin Shewchuk in the second off Samuel Subert and Jepson; and Darien Blight in the third, off Cuglietta and Darien Head.

The Eagles are back on the ice Friday, Oct. 17, when they host rivals the Revelstoke Grizzlies.
