Save: Nothing gets past Sicamous goalie Kris Drott in play Saturday against the North Okanagan Knights.

Eagles schooled by Steam offence

On Saturday, Nov. 5, the Eagles were on the winning side of a 2-0 tally against guests the Knights.

You can never guess which way a game will go based on league standings. Last weekend’s Eagles games against the high-ranking North Okanagan Knights and the cellar-dwelling Summerland Steam were a prime example.

On Saturday, Nov. 5, the Eagles were on the winning side of a 2-0 tally against guests the Knights.

Sicamous head coach Blair Robinson wasn’t exactly enthusiastic about the Eagles’ play as a whole, but was pleased with individual results.

“I didn’t think we played great but we played good enough to win, we scored a couple of goals and played pretty good defence and our goalie was good,” said Robinson, referring to netminder Kris Drott who stopped 31 goals throughout the night.

The two game goals came from: Jagger Bowles, unassisted in the first period, and Steven Powers in the third period, aided by Nathan Grieve and Brad Crump.

Drott was named the game’s first star, Connor Buick second and Anthony Gilbert third.

The following evening Sicamous was in Summerland where they fell to a 7-6 come-from-behind to the Steam.

Sicamous was a powerhouse in the first period, potting five goals to Summerland’s three. Two goals were by Connor Fynn, with singles from Buick, Brendon Wilde and Corbin Marcotte.

Summerland responded to a second-period goal from Sicamous’ Kory Movold, resulting in the Eagles  going into the third period with a 6-4 lead. The Steam poured it on in the third to break the tie. Robinson called it a learning experience for the Eagles.

“In a lot of ways, our team grew a lot as far as an offence line,” said Robinson, adding that while Summerland has a strong offence, they give up a lot of goals.

Fynn was named third star for he game.

The Eagles are in Kamloops on Nov. 12 to take on the Storm, and are back home on Nov. 18 to have a rematch with the Steam. Game time is 7 p.m.
