Eagles receive double drubbing

Weekend goes from bad to worse for Sicamous Eagles.

Last weekend went from bad to worse for the Sicamous Eagles, with the team suffering three back-to-back losses including two shutouts.

On Friday, Jan. 15, the Eagles took a 5-3 loss from the guests the Chase Heat.

The Heat was first on the board with a marker at 12:06 in the first period. Seconds later, Eagle Jaden Hay picked up a rebound goal off Brendan Sime-Vivian and Nicholas Cuglietta. A power-play marker near two minutes before the buzzer gave the Heat a 2-1 lead going into the second period.

The Heat added two more in the first half of the second. But the Eagles fought hard to stay in the game and found the back of the net twice in the second half. Ian Jarvis potted one near the halfway mark off Braydon McCarthy and Ethan Trampuh. The second goal was delivered by Hay off William Mizuik and Nathan Plessis.

The third frame saw the Eagles deprived of several opportunities. The Heat too, was having a difficult time, but managed to add one more goal before the final buzzer.

The old joke, “I went to a fight and a hockey game broke out,” sums up a good portion of the Eagles’ Saturday night home-game loss of 10-0 to the Revelstoke Grizzlies.

The Grizzlies potted two goals in each of the first two frames before  things became downright hostile between the two teams. The Eagles amassed 16 penalty calls, giving the Grizzlies plenty of opportunities to add six more goals before the final buzzer.

On Sunday, the Eagles took another drubbing, this time a 7-0 defeat to hosts the Kamloops Storm. The Eagles aren’t back on the ice again until Sunday, Jan. 24, when they’ll be in Kamloops to again do battle with the Storm.
