The Sicamous Eagles’ Tyler Collens scrambles for the puck during Saturday’s home game versus the North Okanagan Knights.

Eagles have rough start to new year

Wranglers deliver 4-0 shutout, followed by 7-4 home-ice loss to North Okanagan Knights.

The Sicamous Eagles were unable to deliver a win in their first two games of the new year.

Friday, Jan. 6, saw the 100 Mile House Wranglers visit the Sicamous and District Recreation Centre to face off against the Eagles. The Cariboo guests wound up wrangling a 4-0 shutout from the Eagles, with two power-play goals in the first period, a single in the second and another power-play marker in the third.

Sicamous goaltender Max Gaudet was named the game’s first star after stopping 25 shots on net.

The following night, Jan. 7, the Eagles hosted the North Okanagan Knights.

The Knights opened scoring with a short-handed marker at 16:10, adding another at 7:52 to head into the second frame with a 2-0 lead. The Knights added an early single in the second. The Eagles responded in the last five minutes with three back-to-back goals. Dominic Dumas delivered the first off Matthias Urbanski and Alex Astasiewicz, Logan Middleton the second off Tyler Collens and Kyle Riley, and Michael Wright the third off Wesley Howerton and Ryan Ignace.

The Knights shot back in the third period, potting four more goals for a 7-3 lead. With 40 second left on the clock, Tyler Tippett added a single for Sicamous off Austin Miller. The Knights, however, would return to Armstrong with a 7-4 win.
