The Sicamous Eagles saw a narrow win and a narrow loss last weekend when they hosted teams from 100 Mile House and Creston.

The Sicamous Eagles saw a narrow win and a narrow loss last weekend when they hosted teams from 100 Mile House and Creston.

One minute into their Friday, Nov. 22 game versus the 100 Mile House Wranglers the Eagles were on the board, thanks to a marker from Matthew Maetche, assisted by Darien Head and Carter Hansen. After that the board remained static, with the Eagles on a one-goal lead going into the second frame.

The Wranglers were able to tie things up at the half mark in the second, but Stephen Hawco was able to add another goal for Sicamous before the period’s end, assisted by Brady Crabtree and Colin Blake, once again giving the Eagles a one-point lead moving into the next frame.

At the half point in the third the Wranglers tied things up. The Eagles had 12 opportunities on net throughout the frame to increase their lead (as opposed to nine shots from the Wranglers), but couldn’t make any of them count.

At 2:45 into overtime, a marker by Head, assisted by Derek Miskiman and Devin Gerun, brought the game to an end.

On Saturday, Nov. 23, the Eagles wound up on the losing end of a 2-1 tally versus the Creston Valley Thunder Cats.

In the first frame, the Eagles had 21 shots on net, and the Cats 10, but neither team was able to put the puck between the posts.

The Cats turned up the heat in the second frame and were able to get results after the halfway point, scoring two goals.

Sicamous’ single was scored by Gerun on a power play in the third frame, assisted by Hawco and Blake.

The Eagles are back on home ice tonight, Nov. 27, to take on the North Okanagan Knights, and again on  Saturday, Nov. 30, to face off against the Revelstoke Grizzlies.  Game time is 7 p.m.
