Sicamous Eagles face uphill battle in standings

Sicamous having a hard time breaking out of the second-to-last position in division standings.

It wasn’t the best of weeks for the Sicamous Eagles, who are having a hard time breaking out of the second-to-last position in the Doug Birks Division.

On Wednesday, the team was in Armstrong where they were shutout of a game with a 3-0 loss to the North Okanagan Knights.

The Eagles managed 35 shots on net, four less than the Knights, but could not get the puck past North Okanagan netminder Mitch Profeit. The Knights’ first marker came in the first frame, while the other two were scored in the second.

On Friday, the Eagles hosted the Kamloops Storm. In this game, the shot-on-net difference was 50 from the Storm to 37 from the Eagles. Thirty-five of the Storm’s shots were in the first and second frame, but they resulted in only one goal, scored late in the second frame after two markers by Sicamous, one from Carter Hansen, assisted by Bobby Jo Love, and the other by Devon Quartly, assisted by Arlyn Semeschuk and Brady Crabtree.

Whatever happened between the second and third frame in the Kamloops’ locker room definitely made a difference when play resumed. The Storm went on to dominate the game, scoring four goals in a row. A single by Eagle Devin Gerun, assisted by Riley Jepson and Bradley, was the final goal of the night, leaving Sicamous on the losing end of a 5-3 tally.

As of Nov. 19, the Eagles were sitting at 20 points in the Doug Birks Division, while the Revelstoke Grizzlies were in the cellar with 16. The Storm tops the division, and the league with 38 points (tied with the Nelson Leafs).

The Eagles’ next game is Friday when they host the 100 Mile House Wranglers. The next night they welcome the Creston Valley Thundercats.
