Big loss for Pee Wee Eagles against Sylvan Lake

The Pee Wee Eagles travelled to Sylvan Lake Nov. 25

It was a rough game for the Pee Wee Eagles over the weekend, when the Eagles met the Lakers on their home ice.

A fast, hard hitting game saw the Eagles losing 19-5.

The Eckville Eagles had a hard time getting around the Lakers when they played in Sylvan Lake on Nov. 25. The Lakers played a fast offensive game which left he Eagles struggling to play catch-up.

The Lakers quickly left the Eagles behind on the scored board, scoring a total of seven points in the first period.

Unable to break through, and find a hole in the Eagles did not find a spot on the score board in the first period.

Going into the middle frame, the Eagles trailed behind the Lakers, 7-0.

Finally with 9 minutes still on the clock in the second period the Eagles made it past the Lakers with Joel Henkelman scoring unassisted.

Before the end of the period, Henkelman scored once again.

Unfortunately, the Eagles’ two points in the second barely made a dent in the catch-up needed to be on pace with the Lakers during the game. In the second period the Lakers went around the Eagles to score another five times in the 20 minute frame.

With another period yet to play, the Eagles were behind 12-2.

The Eagles came out of the gate on the right foot, with Henkelman scoring within the first minute of game play in the third period.

Before the halfway point of the period, Henkelman scored off a feed from Eagles’ Cale Dickson.

Less than a minute later, Dickson came back for the Eagles final goal of the game.

While the Eagles were able to find holes in the Lakers’ defence it was too late. In the final period of the game the Eagles gave up another seven points to the Lakers.

The final score had the Eagles well behind at 19-5.

The Pee Wee Eagles will next play at home on Dec. 17 against Stettler, with the puck dropping at 12:30 p.m.
