Ghostriders buck Eagles in game one

Eagles sitting with a win and two losses – a 3-2 defeat in overtime and an 8-2 whupping.

Sicamous Eagle Ravinder Shokar races Fernie Ghostriders D-man Anthony Gardner to the puck Friday in Sicamous’ first regular season game.

Three games in to regular season play and the Sicamous Eagles are sitting with a win and two losses – a 3-2 defeat in overtime and an 8-2 whupping.

Exhibition play included a 3-1 loss to the Columbia Valley Rockies, a 6-2 win against the Fernie Ghostriders, as well as a 4-1 loss and a three-all tie against rivals the Revelstoke Grizzlies.

Regular season play began Friday, Sept. 13, with a home game against Fernie – and this time the Ghostriders would not be knocked off the saddle.  The team potted two in the first frame right out of the gate, and a third following an unassisted power-play marker by Sicamous’ Derek Miskiman. In the second  period, Eagle Cam Olson put in the team’s second and final goal of the evening, assisted by Riley Jepson. Fernie added two, with three more in the third period, giving them an 8-2 win. On Saturday, Sept. 14, the Eagles were in Kamloops, where they came out on the losing end of a 3-2 tally in overtime.

Sicamous’ two markers came in the first frame, the first from Mikey Markland, and the second by Jepson. Assists were earned by Nathan Grieve, Darien Head, Owen Rowsell and Brayden Taekema.

Chris Turner proved to be an asset in the Sicamous net. Taking over goaltending responsibilities for the game from Eagles veteran Jack Surgenor, Turner stopped 45 out of 48 shots on net.

On Sunday, Sept. 15, the Eagles welcomed KIJHL newcomers the 100 Mile House Wranglers. The contest was heated, particularly in the first frame where the sole goal went to 100 Mile’s Jayden Syrota. The rest of the evening belonged to Sicamous. Braby Crabtree put the Eagles on the board in the second frame with an unassisted goal, followed by goals from Jepson (assisted by Rowsell) and Markland (Tyson Fair). In the third period, Hayden Orten (Jepson) and Nathan Grieve (Nicholas Astasiewicz and Alex Dartneall) added two more to Sicamous’ total, giving the team a 5-1 win.

The Eagles are on the road this weekend, starting with another bout against Fernie on Friday, as well as games against the Creston Valley Thundercats and the Kimberly Dynamiters. The next home game is Sept. 27 versus the Grizzlies.
