While it wasn’t the best of weekends for their team, Sicamous Eagles’ Jagger Bowles and Connor Flynn certainly had some outstanding games.
On Friday, Oct. 14, the Eagles iced guests the Chase Heat with a 9-1 victory.
Sicamous dominated play throughout the contest, tallying 45 shots to 21 by the Heat.
Sicamous’ Brock McDonald seemed to extinguish the Heat’s enthusiasm when he lit up the board late in the first frame – assists went to Troy McLellan and Johnny Park. Into the second period, it was game over for Chase. Sicamous potted five goals, three on power plays in the period. They came from Fynn, two by Brad Robinson, one from Brendan Devries and one by Bowles. Assists went to Bowles and Flynn, Mike Piderman, Stewart Coyle, Steven Powers, Corbin Marcotte, Connor Buick and Brendon Wilde.
Sicamous goals in the third period came from Wilde, Bowles and Buick (assists by Bowles, Wilde, Flynn, Devries and Brayden Taekema). The sole Chase goal came on a power play late in the frame. Bowles was named the game’s first star, Robinson earned second star and Sicamous netminder Aaron Brandoli was named third star.
On Saturday, Oct. 15, the Eagles were on the losing end of a 7-1 contest against guests, the Revelstoke Grizzlies.
It couldn’t be said Sicamous didn’t make an effort, managing 38 shots to 49 by Revelstoke. But the more experienced team was able to dominate in scoring, with only Flynn finding the back of the Revelstoke net early in the second frame (assisted by Bowles and Anthony Gilbert).
Flynn was named the game’s third star.
Things could easily have gone either way in Sicamous’ away game against the Osoyoos Coyotes on Sunday, Oct. 16. Sicamous tallied 39 shots to Osoyoos’ 38.
The Eagles were first on the board with an early goal in the first frame from Wilde, aided by Flynn. But the game wound up moving in favour of the Coyotes, who were able to put in one goal per period while successfully keeping Sicamous from scoring any more. Flynn was named the game’s second star.
Sicamous’ next game is against guests, the Kamloops Storm, on Friday, Oct. 21. Game time is 7 p.m.
