The Golden Rockets fall to the Sicamous Eagles

The Sicamous Eagles proved to be too much for the Golden Rockets during Kootenay International Junior Hockey League action on Friday night.

The Sicamous Eagles proved to be too much for the Golden Rockets during Kootenay International Junior Hockey League action on Friday night.

The scoring started early in the game, when Golden’s Carson George scored, unassisted, in the opening minutes of the first period. The teams traded goals from Sicamous’s Parker Bowles, Golden’s Connor Beauchemin, and Sicamous’s Brendan Devries.

With two minutes left in the first, the Eagles took the lead for the first time in the game when Connor Flynn buried the puck behind goaltender Jarrod Schamerhorn.

The scoring dried up in the second. Despite three power play opportunities (two for Golden and one for Sicamous), the middle frame was scoreless.

The third period progressed much the same way, until the Rockets pulled Shamerhorn for the man advantage. Bowles scored an empty-netter, putting a final nail in the coffin, with 37 seconds left in the game.

The game ended 4-2 in favour of the Eagles.

The Rockets play again tonight (Saturday Dec. 17) in Revelstoke, and will be back in town to play Fernie on Tuesday Dec. 20.
