The Sicamous Eagles had a good week after grounding the Golden Rockets with a 5-3 win, followed by a 4-3 busting of the Fernie Ghostriders.

Two goals from Eagle Corbin Marcotte led the come-from-behind victory against the Rockets in away action on Monday, Oct. 28.

The Eagles played hard in the first period but Rocket netminder Cole Henson was solid in net. It took a power play in the second half of the frame for Sicamous’ Jagger Bowles to get the puck by Henson on an unassisted goal.

Golden tied things up early in the second period, and potted a second goal before Eagle Brendon Wilde tied things up again with a goal assisted by Bowles. Golden managed a third goal before the period’s end.

The third frame belonged to Sicamous. It began with a goal by Marcotte at 19:00, aided by Brendan Devries and Stewart Cole. Cory Movold followed suit with a goal at 13:23, with assists going to Brad Robinson and Anthony Gilbert. And Marcotte potted the final goal of the evening with assists by Bowles and Wilde.

Bowles was named the game’s first star, while Marcotte was named third star.

It was Connor Buick who took the spotlight in the Sunday, Oct. 30 home game against guests the Fernie Ghostriders.

Fernie scored a single in the first period, the only goal of the frame. Sicamous waited to the second period for the rebound, with a goal by Brendan Davies, aided by Buick.

Brad Crump took advantage of a power play early in the third period to find the back of the Fernie net, with assists going to Jameson Stoski and Marcotte. Former Eagle Easton Bodeux got the rebound for Fernie, with teammate Marty Wicks putting the Ghostriders in the lead. But Buick was able to tie things up at 10:41, and the contest wound up going into overtime.

The win came for Sicamous at 4:48, courtesy of Buick, with help from Devries.

Buick was named the game’s first star, Devries second, and Sicamous netminder Kris Drott was named third after stopping 34 out of 37 shots.

Sicamous’ first game of November is a home contest on the 5th against the North Okanagan Knights. The following evening they’re in Summerland to face off against the Steam. Game time is 7 p.m.
