The Sicamous Eagles are back in action and showing a renewed grit and determination.

The team ended 2015 with a victory celebration following a 8-5 win over the Chase Heat. On Jan. 2, the two teams were at it again in Chase. The Heat managed to outshoot the Eagles 46 to 26, but were unable to get the puck past Sicamous netminder Michael Lenko. The Eagles were also unsuccessful in finding the back of the net during regulation play. The 0-0 stalemate was broken in overtime with a goal by Nicholas Cuglietta off Nathan Plessis and Danny O’Donnell.

Lenko was named the game’s second star.

On Jan 3, the Eagles were in 100 Mile House where they tied 2-2 in a game versus the Wranglers. After a scoreless first period, Darien Blight was able to light the board in the second with a marker off Nicholas Cuglietta and Ian Jarvis. The Wranglers added two in the third frame, with William Mizuik potting a power-play conversion late in the period off Cuglietta and Alex Astasiewicz.

Once again, Lenko was named the game’s second star.

On Friday, Jan 8, the Eagles picked up a 4-1 win over guests the Kamloops Storm. The first frame came and went with both teams unable to put the puck in the net. That changed in the second period at 16:52, when Eagle Darien Blight lit the board with a power-play marker off Plessis and Cuglietta. The momentum continued with another power-play goal minutes later by teammate Bryce McDonald off Danny O’Donnell and Ian Jarvis. The Storm managed to pot a single near the halfway mark, and the period ended with the Eagles leading 2-1. In the third period, the Storm had more than double the number of opportunities to score than the Eagles but all were denied by Lenko. Lenko’s teammates, however, would find the back of the Storm net twice before the final buzzer. One of those goals was an unassisted marker by Mizuik, the second was delivered by Darien Blight off McDonald and Cuglietta.

Blight was named the game’s first star.

The Eagle’s week ended with a home-ice, 4-2 loss to the North Okanagan Knights.
