Storm rolls over Eagles in back-to-back games

What the Sicamous Eagles lacked in action on the scoreboard, they almost made up for in saves between the pipes.

What the Sicamous Eagles lacked in action on the scoreboard, they almost made up for in saves between the pipes.

Over the weekend, the Eagle Valley’s Junior B team played back-to-back games versus Hub City’s Kamloops Storm.

On Friday, Sept. 25, the action was at McArthur Park Arena, where the Kamloops host earned a 4-2 win. Eagles netminder Kolby Pauwels was busy in the first frame, stopping 16 shots on net, and 32 throughout the game, earning him the game’s second star. Sicamous’ markers both came in the third, one from Nathan Plessis off Danny O’Donnell and Alex Astasiewicz, and the second, an unassisted power-play conversion by Nicholas Cuglietta.

The Storm blew into Sicamous on Saturday night to face a home team determined to pick up the rebound. Kamloops was able to score a goal per frame, while Sicamous only found the back of the net once with a marker by Ian Jarvis off of Baily Shaver.

Sicamous’ Patrick Kasper excelled in net,  keeping damage to a minimum by stopping 29 shots and earning the game’s first star.

The Eagles won’t be back on the ice until Oct. 3 when they welcome the Osoyoos Coyotes. Game time is 7 p.m.
