Eckville Senior Eagles soar into Game Five

The Eagles went into overtime during Game 4, Feb. 2.

The Eckville Senior Eagles are still alive in the playoff series, after a thrilling win over the Devon Barons.

The Eagles hosted the Barons in Game Four of the series on Feb. 2, after losing in overtime the previous day, 4-3.

The do-or-die game had the Eagles behind for the majority of the game.

The first period of the game saw the Eagles scoreless, and the Barons pick up one point in their favour.

While the Eagles were scoreless in the first 20 minutes, it wasn’t for lack of trying. The team attempted 15 shots on net, while the Barons successfully made one of 12.

Following the lack lustre first period, the Eagles came back on to the ice, and put one home.

At the end of the second period the home team was still behind, 1-3.

Fans were on the edge of their seats as time ticked down in the third period. The Eagles had made four success shots at the Barons goal.

Meanwhile the Barons picked up another two.

When the seconds ticked away, and the buzzer sounded the Eagles were tied 5-5.

Game four went into a 10 minute overtime, and the Eagles found their second wind.

It took nearly the entire overtime period for the Eagles to find success.

After nine minutes and 50 seconds, the Eagles soared into Game Five, and tied the series at two games each.

The next game, the final game of the series, will be held on Feb. 9 in Devon, and will decide who will move on to the next round of playoffs.

The Eagles are hoping to arrange a fan bus to the game, those interested are encouraged to contact the Senior Eagles.

The puck drops at 8 p.m. at the Dale Fisher Arena in Devon.
