Eagles win 8 -2 in final game of the year

The Eckville Eagles played the Westlock Warriors Dec. 16 in Eckville

Eckville Senior Eagles won 8-2 in their final fast-paced game of the year against the Westlock Warriors, Dec. 16 at the Eckville Arena.

First period saw scoring only from the Eagles with Scott Kallis starting it off with assistance from Kyle Sheen and Eric Moltzahn for the first goal. Towards the end of the period Derek Wiedmer made the second goal from teammates Moltzahn and Brian Pieper. Almost immediately after, Chance Abbot scored with Sheen and Reed Watts assisting.

With the Eagles already leading the game, Westlock fought back early in the second with Scott Ivey making the Warrior’s first goal from teammates Taylor Heck and Brett Bujold. They kept trying to catch up with Philip Ferenac scoring with teammate’s Mike Ivey and Jake Chizma’s assistance.

The Eagles took over once again with Chance Abbot scoring the fourth goal, assisted by Scott Doucet and Moltzahn. Doucet finished the second period off with help from Reed Watts and Abbot, giving the Eagles a 5-2 lead.

Even with seven penalties to their name, the Eagles didn’t let anything stand in the way of keeping all the scoring to themselves in the final period. Sheen scored off teammates Doucet and Watts early in the period. A few minutes later Derek Hobbs scored with assistance from Abbott and Sheen. The final goal was scored by Abbott assisted by Watts and Doucet with about two minutes left in the game.

“We were really good at times and really mediocre at times. We’re just trying to stay rolling for when we do get to play-offs,” said Coach Cale Walker.

Play-offs will be at the end of January.
