Playing on their home ice didn’t give the Revelstoke Grizzlies much of an edge Friday when they suffered a 4-2 defeat to the Sicamous Eagles.

The Eagles got on the board early in the first frame of the Oct. 11 contest with a marker by Brady Crabtree, assisted by Riley Jepson. A few minutes later the Grizzlies were able to tie things up on the power play.

Sicamous’ second goal came in the middle of the second frame from Nathan Grieve off of Nicholas Astasiewicz.

With five minutes left in the third period, Eagle Hayden Orton and Devin Gerun each added goals, with assists by Jayce Davis, Jepson and Owen Rowsell, to secure the win over the Grlizzlies, who still managed to get the last word in with the final goal of the night.

The following evening, on Oct. 12, the Eagles were at the Princeton arena where they were forced to concede defeat to the Princeton Posse in double overtime.

Rowsell potted the Eagles first goal at 9:05 in the first frame. Jepson and Bradley Whitehead provided the assists. By the period’s end, the Eagles’ single was sandwiched between three markers for the Posse.

Sicamous turned the game around in the second period, with goals added by James Price and Jayce Davis, both assisted by Tyson Fair.

The Posse tied things up at 12:27 in the third frame. From there the scoreboard remained static until 1:10, when Sicamous’ Tyler Ehlers added the tie from Darien Head and Davis.

In second overtime the Posse’s Eric Kubis managed was able to chip the puck past netminder Chris Turner, earning Princeton a 5-4 win.

The Eagles’ next game is Oct. 17 in Chase, they once again taken on the Heat. The next day they’re in Kelowna to battle the Chiefs and, on Oct. 20, the Eagles will be playing the Osoyoos Coyotes at the Oliver Arena.

 

On Oct. 23 and 26 the Eagles will be back on home ice for games against the Kamloops Storm and the Kimberly Dynamiters. Those in attendance will not be mistaken when they notice the Eagles’ jerseys are of a pinkish hue. That’s because the team is wearing pink jerseys to raise money for the BC Cancer Society. Fans are asked to wear pink as well. A silent auction will be held on Oct. 26, where fans can bid on their favourite player’s pink jersey. Also, for the Oct. 26 game, first responders get in free.
