Sicamous continues to dominate ice

The Sicamous Eagles are one game away from wrapping up 2012 on a nine-game winning streak.

The Sicamous Eagles are one game away from wrapping up 2012 on a nine-game winning streak. And the odds that they’ll do it look good.

Sicamous’ last game  of the year will be an away contest versus the Chase Heat. The Heat were only lukewarm when it came to scoring Friday night when they suffered a 10-3 loss on home ice to the Sicamous Eagles.

Sicamous’ Nathan Grieve turned the power play into the sole goal in the first frame, with the assist going to Jamie Gallo. Things heated up in the second frame, but not so much for Chase. Scoring began early in the frame with a marker from Sicamous’ Cameron Berry, off of Brendan Devries. Chase potted the next goal, followed by another from Berry on a power play, assisted by Brayden Taekema and Brad Crump. Sicamous  swiftly added two more goals to their tally, the first from Kelyn Opel, assisted by Corbin Marcotte, followed by a marker from Devries, aided by James Stoski and Cam Olson.

Chase converted a power play into their second goal, but a later single from Nicholas Astasiewicz, assisted by Quinn Rempel and Steven Powers, gave Sicamous a 6-2 lead going into the third period.

In the first minute of the third, Taekema upped Sicamous’ lead to 7-2, with assists by Devries and Alex Dartnall. Minutes later, Opel potted his second of the evening off Dartnall. Devries followed suit soon after on the power play off Opel. Goal number 10 came just after the halfway mark courtesy of Marcotte, aided by Opel and Taekema.

Chase did not give up, however, and put in their final goal at the 14 second mark.

The Eagles’ Sunday 4-1 win versus hosts the Kamloops Storm required more of an effort.

Devries converted passes from Crump and Oslon in the first frame to tie things up at 1-1 going into the second period.

Marcotte made quick use of the power play at 19:32 on the clock to put in goal-number two for Sicamous, assisted by Berry and Dartnall. The remaining two goals of the evening soon followed, the first by Astasiewicz and the second by Taekema.

Sicamous’ final game of the year versus the Heat is Dec. 19 in Chase.
