The Sicamous Eagles could feel some satisfaction Saturday night after winning a rebound game versus the Kamloops Storm.

The Sicamous Eagles could feel some satisfaction Saturday night after winning a rebound game versus the Kamloops Storm.

On opposite ends of the Doug Birks Division, the cellar-dwelling Eagles may have been underestimated by their Kamloops hosts Friday night, Jan. 5. The Eagles were on the defensive for much of the game, but still managed to push the game into overtime where they finally fell 3-2. Bryce McDonald potted the only goal scored in the second frame off Ryan Ingace and Ian Jarvis. The second goal was served in the third during the power play by Nathan Plessis off Darien Blight and Danny O’Donnel.

Michael Lenko earned the game’s second star after stopping a whopping 57 shots on net.

The following night, the Storm were on Sicamous ice where they lost 6-4 to the Eagles.

Sicamous was on fire from the get-go, with Blight lighting up the board early in the first, and Cameron Flinton on the assist. Minutes later, Joshua Windley put the Eagles at 2-0 with a goal off Jaden Hay. The Storm picked up a power-play conversion late in the frame.

Both teams added two goals to their tally in the second, with the Sicamous markers from Brayden McCarthy off O’Donnell and Plessis, and McDonald off Flinton and Ingace.

The Storm added their final goal of the night early in the third. The game stayed at 4-4 until the last five minutes of the frame when  Plessis potted back-to-back goals, the first off O’Donnell and Blight, and the second off Nicholas Cuglietta and Flinton.

Plessis was named the game’s first star.

On Monday, the Eagles fell 5-1 to hosts, the Revelstoke Grizzlies.
