Kasper and Charest among best in league

Patrick Kasper and Olivier Charest showed why they’re among the top 10 goalies in the KIJHL.

Last weekend, the Sicamous Eagles’ Patrick Kasper and Olivier Charest showed why they’re among the top 10 goalies in the KIJHL.

On Friday, Dec. 5, guests the Kamloops Storm managed to put the puck in Kasper’s net twice in the first period and three times in the third. The end result of this game was a 5-0 shutout for the Storm, and those goals were among the 38 shots on net Kasper faced throughout the night. His performance earned him the game’s first star honours. The Eagles managed 34 shots on the Storm net, all stopped by the team’s latest acquisition, the skilled Brody Nelson.

Charest didn’t receive a game star when the Eagles played the 100 Mile House Wranglers Saturday night in the Cariboo. Regardless, the netminder didn’t fail to impress, stopping 25 out of 30 shots. The game itself ended with the Eagles on the losing end of a 5-0 defeat in overtime.

Nathan Grieve and Samuel Subert each made power-play conversions in the first frame, with assists by Devyn Myck, Riley Cardinal, Nicoholas Cuglietta and Riley Jepson. 100 Mile potted three goals in the frame, earning one-goal lead going into the second.

Ben Campbell potted an unassisted goal in the second – the only goal scored that period, ending on a 4-4 tie.

Cuglietta added a single near the half-point, assisted by Nathan Plessis and Mathew Deveau. But 100 Mile tied things up at 1:15, leading the game into overtime.
