The Sicamous Eagles celebrate their 5-3 home-ice win over the 100 Mile House Wranglers on Friday

Eagles score last win for 2016

The Sicamous Eagles give their fans a Christmas gift with a home-ice win.

The Sicamous Eagles gave their fans a Christmas gift with a home-ice win last Friday.

Over the weekend, the Eagles faced off against the 100 Mile House Wranglers for their last games of 2017.

On Friday night, the Eagles threw the Cariboo cowboys with a 5-3 win at the Sicamous and District Recreation Centre.

The first period saw a busy Josh Bolding block everything the Wranglers sent his way. But the only goal in the frame was delivered by the Eagles’ Tyler Collens, with assists by Wesley Howerton and Ben Schoenfeld.

Jordan Bautista potted a power-play conversion off Jace Woodley in the first minute of the second frame, giving the Eagles a 2-0 lead. But the Wrangers’ Justin Bond scored on the rebound, reducing the Eagles’ lead by one. They held onto that lead until the end of the period.

A minute into the third period saw Ryan Ignace deliver an unassisted marker for Sicamous. At 15:02, the Wranglers added one, maintaining the one-goal difference. At 11:51, Woodley added a single off Collens and Eric Porter. The Wrangers were unable to respond until the last four minutes of the frame. But an empty-netter by Matthias Urbanski, with 12 seconds left on the clock, sealed the win for the Eagles.

The following night, the Eagles were at the South Cariboo Recreation Centre, where the determined Wranglers were able to keep the visiting Shuswap team off the board until the second half of the third period, when Alex Astasiewicz scored a power-play conversion off Alex Hartmen and Collens.

The Eagles are now officially on holiday, and won’t be back in action until Saturday, Jan. 7, when they host the North Okanagan Knights.
