Sicamous Eagle Connor Buick screens the Kamloops Storm net in away action Friday

Sicamous Eagles return to winning form

The Sicamous Eagles were back on their game last weekend, picking up two wins and dropping one contest in overtime.

The Sicamous Eagles were back on their game last weekend, picking up two wins and dropping one contest in overtime.

After a dismal showing during a three-game road trip through the Kootenays the weekend prior, the Eagles picked up a 2-1 victory against the Kamloops Storm on Friday, Nov. 9 at the McArthur Park Arena. Sicamous came out strong in the first period, keeping Kamloops netminder Marcus Beesley occupied with 18 shots on net. Two of those managed to ripple the mesh, the first on a power play at 12:57 from Kelyn Opel, assisted by Brendan Devries and Jameson Stoski. The second goal was scored by Cameron Berry, off of Stoski and Connor Buick.

The Storm’s single came on a power play in the second half of the second frame. Stoski was named the game’s first star.

The Storm got their revenge the following night, Saturday, Nov. 9,  with a 2-1 win on Sicamous ice, though not without having to go into overtime.

The first and second periods remained scoreless. The Storm was first to light up the board midway through the third frame. The Eagles’ Connor Fynn, with the rebound, scored seconds later, assisted by Opel and Brayden Taekema.

The game-winner came at 2:29 into OT from Kamloops’ Jacky Lu.

Sicamous was in Penticton on Sunday, Nov. 11, to face off against the Lakers. Fynn potted an early marker in the first frame, aided by Opel and Devries. The next goal of the evening didn’t come until halfway through the second period – an unassisted  goal by Devries.

Penticton finally responded early in the third frame, but the goal offered less hope minutes later when Sicamous’ Brett Trofanenko added another goal to Sicamous’ lead, assisted by Steven Powers and Devon Quartly. The game ended in a 3-1 decision for Sicamous.
