The Eckville Atom B Eagles are off to a rough start this season, losing their third straight game of the season.
The eagles were in Sylvan Lake Friday night to take on the Lakers at the NexSource Centre.
With a score of 9-1, the Lakers were able to maintain a large lead throughout the entire game.
The Lakers were first on the board. Not even four minutes are the Lakers first goal, the Eagles answered back with a goal of their own at 11:45.
Eagles player Mason New brought the puck home off a feed from No. 7 Dankia Vandermeer.
Unfortunately this was the only goal the Eagles would be able to get off during the game.
The first period ended with the Eagles trailing, 4-1.
The middle frame was more of the same, with the Lakers maintaining control of the puck.
Starting the second period, the Lakers immediately took control of the puck with a goal at 19:52.
The Lakers kept the Eagles from the net for rest of the game.
Despite the relentless offence from the Lakers, the Eagles were able to keep the defensive game strong.
In particular, goaltender Morgan Sully played a great game. Sully had 46 shots against him, letting in nine.
On offence, the Eagles were able to break through the Lakers defence for one goal on net along with 14 shots against the goaltender.
The Atom B Eagles will play at home on Oct. 28 when the team takes on the Didsbury Ramblers. The puck drops at 12-noon.
