Eagles get payback in Kootenay road trip

The Eagles were in Fernie where they had an opportunity to make up for an 8-2 defeat suffered recently at the hands of the Ghostriders.

The Sicamous Eagles were able to get some payback during a visit to the Kootenays last weekend.

On Sept. 20, the Eagles were in Fernie where they had an opportunity to make up for an 8-2 defeat suffered recently at the hands of the Ghostriders. Sicamous didn’t disappoint, winning the contest 3-1.

Sicamous’ Hayden Orten was first on the board with a first-period goal at 11:34. Assists were from Riley Jepson and Darien Head. Fernie outshot Sicamous in the second frame but could not get the puck past Kris Joyce’s glove. The Eagles, however, were able to add two more goals in the last five minutes and, ultimately, win the game. The goals were by Carter Hansen (unassisted) and Head, off of Owen Roswell and Hayden Orten.

In the third frame Sicamous managed 14 shots on net to Fernie’s seven, but neither team was able to ripple the mesh.

From Fernie, Sicamous’ three-day tour of the Kootenays went downhill.

On Saturday, Sept. 21, the team was in Creston, where they faced a 5-2 defeat to the Creston Valley Thunder Cats.

Eagle Nathan Grieve potted the first goal of the night, an unassisted marker at 16:57 in the first period. Thirty-six seconds later the T-Cats replied, tying up the game and, minutes later, added a second goal to give them a 2-1 lead going into the second period.

Creston added three more goals in the second and third periods, with the final goal of the night scored by Sicamous’ Nicholas Astasiewicz, off of Alex Dartnall and Grieve.

Sunday’s game (Sept. 22) versus the Kimberly Dynamiters could easily have gone in either team’s favour, though it was the hosts who picked up the 2-1 win.

After a scoreless first period, Jepson was able to light up the board early in the second frame with assists by Orten and Owen Rowsell. The Dynamiters replied before the period’s end, and were able to add the tie-breaker at 15:03 in the third period.

The Eagles will be back on home ice on Friday, Sept. 27 for a contest against rivals the Revelstoke Grizzlies. The following night they’re in Revelstoke. Game time is 7 p.m.
