Knights rusty in action against Eagles

The Sicamous Eagles only played once over the past week, but they played well, taking a 4-2 win in away-action against the North Okanagan Knights.

The Sicamous Eagles only played once over the past week, but they played well, taking a 4-2 win in away-action against the North Okanagan Knights.

The Knights took the Eagles to  task, out-shooting them in all three frames. But Sicamous netminder Aaron Brandoli stood his ground for most of the game, stopping 31 out of 33 shots.

Sicamous’ Brendon Wilde was the first and only player to light up the board in the first frame, with a goal aided by Brock McDonald.

North Okanagan tied things up early in the second frame, but in the period’s second half, Sicamous came back hard with two goals, one by Nathan Grieve and the other courtesy of Troy McLellan. Assists went to Anthony Gilbert, Corbin Marcotte, Jamie Gallo and Brad Robinson.

Halfway through the third period, Jagger Bowles put Sicamous at four with a goal assisted by McDonald. Minutes later the Knights potted what would be their final goal of the game.

The Eagles’ next game is Friday, Oct. 7, when they take on hosts the Penticton Lakers. They’ll be back in Sicamous on Saturday to do battle once more with the Knights, and on Sunday they’re off to Kamloops to face off against the Kamloops Storm. Game time is 7 p.m.
