It might have been a good week for the Sicamous Eagles if it wasn’t for the Chase Heat.
After a week of downtime, the Eagles were back in action on Tuesday, Nov. 25, when they earned a 4-3 win versus guests the Revelstoke Grizzlies.
Eagle Samuel Subert was first to light up the board with a first-period marker at 15:17, assisted by Braydon McCarthy and Arlyn Semeschuk.
Sicamous took that 1-0 lead into the second period, where they added three more. These were delivered by Ben Campbell (assisted by Nathan Plessis and Bradley Whitehead), Nicholas Cugliette (Riley Cardinal and Nathan Grieve) and Carter Hansen (Darien Blight and McCarthy). Revelstoke’s first goal, a power-play conversion was scored minutes before Hansen’s, and the period ended with Sicamous ahead 4-1. The Grizzlies added two more goals in the third. Sicamous goalie Olivier Charest was named the game’s first star, stopping 27 out of 30 shots on net.
On Friday, Nov. 28, the Eagles were in Chase to take on the Heat. The end result, however, was a 3-0 shutout for the host-team. Sicamous netminder Patrick Kasper was on fire, stopping 44 out of 47 attempts on net, while forward Ben Campbell earned second-star honour.
The Eagles were in Armstrong on Sunday, where they came away with a 5-4 win against the North Okanagan Knights.
Sicamous dominated the first frame with goals scored by Korwin Shewchuk (Riley Jepson, Whitehead) and Blight (unassisted). In the second period, a single by Shewchuk (Darien Head, Subert) was sandwiched by two Knights’ markers.
The Knights added two more early in the third, as did Sicamous, including an unassisted goal by Grieve, and the game win by Devyn Myck (Campbell and Justin Wilde).
