Eagles knock back Grizzlies in rebound

Strong goaltending was a notable factor in how the weekend played out for the Sicamous Eagles.

Strong goaltending was a notable factor in how the weekend played out for the Sicamous Eagles.

Friday and Saturday the team had back-to-back games versus rivals, the Revelstoke Grizzlies. At Friday’s game, the host Eagles were on the losing side of a narrow, 2-1 tally. The following night, on the bruins’ home ice, the Eagles earned a 5-4 win in overtime. In both games the Grizzlies outshot the Eagles (52-46 and 53-40), but solid efforts by Chris Turner on Friday and Kris Joyce on Saturday helped keep damage to a minimum. The wins, however, didn’t come easy for either team.

In Friday’s contest, the first and second periods were scoreless. The Grizzlies finally lit up the board in the first minute of the third frame, their second goal potted less than two minutes later. A minute later, Sicamous’ Tyler Ehlers  executed the rebound, assisted by Devin Gerun and Matthew Maetche.

The first goal Saturday night was scored with six seconds left on the clock in the first period by Sicamous’ Tyson Fair, assisted by Jayce Davis. Revved by the lead, the Eagles quickly added another goal in the second period, courtesy of an unassisted marker by Tyler Ehlers.

Revelstoke turned up the heat for the remainder of the period and added three goals of their own.

In the third frame, Nathan Grieve tied things up, assisted by Derek Miskiman, and then added another marker off Nicholas Astasiewicz and Miskiman to give the Sicamous a lead that ended on a Grizzlies’ powerplay conversion at 4:23. Play went into second overtime before Hayden Orton sealed the win for Sicamous, with assists by Bobby Jo Love and Riley Jepson.

Sicamous is back on home ice on Oct. 4 to face off against the Chase Heat. Game time is 7 p.m.
