Eagles win one, drop two versus Kootenay contenders

The Sicamous Eagles learned over the weekend that life on the road can be hard.

The Sicamous Eagles learned over the weekend that life on the road can be hard.

On Friday, Sept. 26 the team was in Castlegar to face off against the Rebels. From the first frame the Kootenay hosts had the Eagles on the defensive, managing 20 shots on net to Sicamous’ 10. Only one of the Rebels’ attempts made it past Eagles netminder Liam Banks, and not until late in the period following a Sicamous marker delivered by Ben Campbell off Tyson Taylor.

The Rebels added goals in the second period at 15:11 and the five-minute mark. Seconds later, Eagles rookie Korwin Shewchuk rippled the Rebels mesh with assists by Riley Jepson and Samuel Subert. Down to the 31-second mark, teammate Devyn Myck tied the game at 3-3 assisted by Tyson Taylor.

Stephen Hawco put Sicamous in the lead early in the third period, after which the game belonged to the Rebels, who added four more goals for a 7-4 win.

On Saturday, the Eagles were south of the border to battle the Spokane Braves. Once again, the Eagles faced an aggressive opponent in the first frame and, once again, the Eagles were first to light up the board, with a goal by Mathew Deveau off Nathan Grieve. The Braves found the back of the Eagles’ net with one minute left on the clock. The Braves broke the tie with the sole marker of the second frame, then cranked up their offensive in the third period, but were repeatedly denied by goalie Logan Edwards. Meanwhile, Edwards’ teammates Nathan Plessis and Tyson Taylor each managed to find the back of the net, with assists by Deveau and Eric Austin, giving Sicamous the 3-2 win.

On Sunday the Eagles were in Nelson to rake the Leafs. Plessis and Taylor put Sicamous on the board and in the lead in the first period.  In second frame, the Leafs were piling up shots on the Eagles’ end, seven of which went into the net. A marker by Shewchuk in the third period, off Jepson and Darien Head, put the final score at 6-3 for the Leafs.
