Kamloops Storm stays out of penalty box to earn 5-2 win against Sicamous Eagles

Round two of playoffs proceeds to game seven tonight in Kamloops.

Despite having plenty of support from the bleachers in game 6 of the playoffs against the Sicamous Eagles wound up losing 5-2 to the Kamloops Storm. Game 7 is tonight in Kamloops.



The Kamloops Storm chose not to live up to the slogan on their bus, “does not play well with others” last night, and was rewarded with a 5-2 win vs. the Sicamous Eagles, pushing round two of the playoffs to game seven.

Game six, played Monday night in Sicamous, began slowly and never really picked up steam for the home team – with a lot of missed opportunities – despite the raucous crowd on hand to show support. Where Sicamous did excel was on the power play, the first of which came at the halfway point in the first frame. With the one-man advantage, the Eagles’ play became methodical, taking their time while keeping their opponents on their toes. Eventually it was Matt Reed who saw the opening and took the shot, potting the first goal of the evening. He was assisted by Joel Kipp and Jameson Stoski.

Kamloops did not let the Sicamous marker go unanswered, and was able to tie things up before the period’s end.

Early in the second frame, the Eagles were able transform another power play into a scoring advantage, with Connor Fynn this time rippling the mesh, assisted by Brendan Devries. After that, the Storm took over, seemingly becoming more energized with each goal. The Eagles wound up replacing  netminder Jack Surgenor – who made numerous excellent saves – with Kris Drott, but the Storm offensive stayed strong, focused, and out of the penalty box.

So Sicamous is off to Kamloops tonight for game 7.
