A weekend road trip to the Kootenays didn’t pan out well for the Sicamous Eagles.

A weekend road trip to the Kootenays didn’t pan out well for the Sicamous Eagles.

Despite the long bus ride, the Eagles were quick to find their legs Friday night, Nov. 20, when the first of three away games began with a contest versus the Creston Valley Thunder Cats. While the Sicamous guests were hot, Cats’ netminder Brock Lefebvre was on fire, stopping everything fired his way throughout the night. Meanwhile, the Cats’ offence was able to tally one goal per period, including an empty netter at 27 seconds in the third. Eagle Cam Flinton was named the game’s second star.

On Saturday, Nov. 21, the Eagles suffered a 4-2 defeat to the Fernie Ghostriders. O’Donnell put the Eagles on the board late in the first with a marker off Astasiewicz and Arlyn Semeschuk. With 13 seconds left in the period, the Ghostriders were able to convert a power play to head into the second at 1-1.

After a scoreless second period, the third saw both teams score in the first minute, with Nathan Plessis potting the goal for Sicamous off William Mizuik.

The third game of the Kootenay run was on Sunday, Nov. 22,  versus the Kimberly Dynamiters. The Eagles gave the host team a run for their money, but came up short with a 3-2 loss in overtime.

The game was one-and-one by the end of the second frame, with the Sicamous marker scored by Alex Astasiewicz off Danny O’Donnell, who tied the game up in the third with a goal off Scott Robinson and goalie Kolby Pauwels.

The Sicamous netminder put in a fine performance and was named the game’s second star after stopping 32 out of 35 shots on net.
