Good breaks haven’t been plentiful for the Sicamous Eagles since the new year began. The one break they did receive over the past week came in Chase on Wednesday, Jan. 25, where Sicamous managed a 3-2 overtime win against KIJHL Doug Birks Division cellar-dwellers the Chase Heat.
The Heat were first on the board with a first period power-play goal. Eagle Connor Fynn tied things up with a goal at 2:19. Assists came from Daniel Anhorn and Brett Tofanenko.
A power-play goal in the second period from Sicamous’ Steven Powers (assisted by Tarren Cavanaugh) put the team in the lead going into the third frame, where Chase tied things up at the half point. The game wound up being pushed into overtime. In overtime period 2, a Brendon Wilde-goal sealed the win for Sicamous. Powers was named second star for the game.

The Posse pulled ahead in the third frame with two goals.
