The Sicamous Eagles continue to hunt for that elusive win.
They came close on Friday, Sept. 23, in 100 Mile House, where the Wranglers earned a 3-2 victory. Sicamous rallied in the third frame when Alex Astasiewicz, assisted by Cameron Flinton and Bryce McDonald, potted back-to-back markers. The final tally was a far cry from the 7-2 defeat the Eagles suffered to the Wranglers when they last met.
On Sept. 24, home team the Chase Heat picked up a 5-2 win against the Eagles, with the Sicamous markers scored by Tyler Collens in the second, and Astasiewicz in the third.
Sicamous netminder Kolby Pauwels was named the game’s second star, stopping 52 out of 56 shots on net.
Eagles head coach Ty Davidson said some bad penalties hindered the Eagles’ momentum.
Tonight (Sept. 28), the Eagles will be looking to reverse their fortunes when they host the Revelstoke Grizzlies.
“It should be a good game,” said Davidson. “We’re going to work on our fore-check and our d-zone in practice here over the next couple of days. The other thing we have to get going is our power play.”
Game time is 7 p.m.
