The Sicamous Eagles enjoyed two wins in a trio of away games over the weekend.

The Sicamous Eagles enjoyed two wins in a trio of away games over the weekend.

On Friday night, the Eagles were in Summerland to take on the Steam.

Sicamous came out strong in the first frame and their precision performance paid off with three goals that would earn them the 3-2 win. The markers came from Brady Crabtree, assisted by Bradley Whitehead, Tyler Ehlers, aided by Mikey Markland and Devin Gerun, and Nicholas Astasiewicz, assisted by Tyson Taylor.

The Steam turned up the steam in the second frame, and were able to add two goals. But Eagles netminder Kris Joyce shut down all further attempts on net, which tallied 46 throughout the evening, compared to 28 by Sicamous.

From Summerland, the Eagles travelled north to play the 100 Mile House Wranglers at the South Cariboo Rec Centre.

The teams were well matched in the first frame, but only the Eagles were finding the back of the net, with markers from Taylor and Crabtree. Astasiewicz assisted on both, and Taylor on the second.

The Wranglers came back with a vengeance in the second frame, adding three goals of their own and taking the lead into the third period.

Midway through the third, the Wranglers added another goal. Five minutes later, Taylor contributed goal number three for Sicamous, assisted by Nathan Grieve and Jayce Davis. But the game ended with 100 Mile on the winning side of a 4-3 tally.

The following night, the Eagles were back on 100 Mile’s home ice, where they wrangled the rebound and left with a 3-2 overtime win.

Scoring was led by 100 Mile with two goals in the first frame. Sicamous dominated the second period, and Riley Jepson potted back-to-back goals with assists by Owen Rowsell (2), Derek Miskiman and Crabtree.

The third frame was scoreless. A power play in overtime  was the window of opportunity for Eagle Jayce Davis to put in the winning goal, assisted by Gerun and Grieve.

Sicamous is back on the road for a Nov. 8 contest versus the Columbia Valley Rockies. They’ll be back on home ice the following night to take on the Golden Rockets. Game time is 7 p.m.
