Sicamous Eagles upset Princeton Posse with 5-0 shut out

A one-game weekend yielded satisfying results for the Sicamous Eagles.

The Junior B Eagles were at the Princeton & District Arena last Friday evening, Oct. 18, to face off against the Posse.

An early goal in first period by the Eagles’ James Lalikeas, from Logen Mitchell and Trysten Brookman, wasn’t a good omen for Posse fans.

While both teams managed about the same number of shots on net throughout the contest, Cole Steinke was a wall behind the Eagles’ crease throughout the evening, while his teammates were the only ones finding the back of the net.

Second period saw Jaxon Danilec add a goal to Sicamous’ tally, assisted by Cole Nisse, at 13:58, followed soon after with a marker by Owen Spannier, assisted by Trevor Ebeling and James Guidon.

An early power-play conversion for the Eagles kicked off the third frame, with Brandon Pelletier potting a single assisted by Danilec and Nisse.

Minutes later, Danilec added his second goal of the game, assisted by Brayden Haskell and Steinke. It would be the last goal of the game, making it a 5-0 shut out for the Eagles.

The game wasn’t a tidy affair, with both teams racking up several penalties, particularly in the first and second frames, including a 10-minute game misconduct calls for Sicamous’ Andrew Berkelaar and Princeton’s Trevor Gulenchyn in the second period, and head contact major for Guidon in the third period.

With the win over Princeton, the Eagles find themselves slotted in second place with 14 points in the Doug Birks Division, trailing only division-leading Revelstoke Grizzlies with 16 points.

Next up for the Eagles is road game Oct. 25 against the Kelowna Chiefs, with a home game the following day as the Eagles host the Osoyoos Coyotes.
