The Sicamous Eagles kicked off parents’ weekend on home ice Friday, Nov. 18, impressing family members with a 6-1 win against the Chase Heat.
The Eagles started fast, scoring three times in the first period.

The third first-period goal was scored at the 17-minute mark, by Sean Smith assisted by Reid Tisdale and Alex Smith.
The second period featured two power play goals, the first by Teulon assisted by Aiden Kalin and Colby Agyeman, and the second by Reid Tofteland assisted by Ezra Chan.
