Eagles rally from behind

For three consecutive games the Sicamous Eagles have mounted three late comebacks only to come up just short.

For three consecutive games the Sicamous Eagles have mounted three late comebacks only to come up just short.

In the Eagles’ latest game, on Sunday, they hosted the Kelowna Chiefs at the Sicamous and District Recreation Centre. The Chiefs stormed into the game opening up a two-goal lead within the first five minutes.

Patrick Kasper replaced starting goalie Kolby Pauwels and the change provided a positive spark for the Eagles as they grabbed a foothold in the game by out-muscling the Chiefs on the forecheck in the corners. Despite the Eagles out-working the Chiefs, the Chiefs increased their lead to four before William Mizuik unloaded a blast from the point, his fourth of the season, just before the end of the second frame.

A physical third period led to penalty trouble for Kelowna, and Danny O’Donnell took full advantage on the power play as he shelved a tight angle shot into the top corner with two minutes to play. Down by two goals, late in the game the Eagles found a spark and Nicholas Cuglietta scored, making the score 4-3.

With Kasper pulled, the Chiefs iced the game with an empty net goal. Last week the Eagles also faced off against the 100 Mile House Wranglers, losing 3-2 in overtime and 5-4 in overtime to the Columbia Valley Rockies. The Eagles next home game is this Saturday at 7 p.m. to the Golden Rockets.
