Eckville Sr. Eagles slip in shootout loss

The Sr. Eagles fell 5-4 to the Daysland Northstars on Dec. 1 at the Eckville Arena

The Eckville Sr. Eagles suffered a shootout loss to rival Daysland Northstars on Dec. 1.

Luckily, the 5-4 loss at home wasn’t enough to drop the Eagles in the standings as they sit in second place just below Morinville.

The Eagles came out strong in the first period when they were the only team to put points up on the board.

Jared Williams was the first to find the back of the net with a feed from Colton Anderson and Chance Abbott.

The next two goals were a result of an Eagles power play.

With 5:27 remaining in the first Kale Lapointe, from Jeff Clazie and Matt Richardson, scored the Eagles’ second goal of the game.

The Eagles’ second power-play goal came off the stick of Jordie Lawson, assisted by Matt Richardson and Kale Lapointe, with seven-seconds to go until the first intermission.

The Northstars came back after the break with a new life and scored four goals in the middle frame.

When the horn sounded to end the second period the Eagles were trailing 4-3.

The Eagles were able to make it a tie game with 15:44 to go in the third period when Chance Abbott, fed by Colton Anderson, got the puck past the Northstars goalie, Connor Dobberthien.

Each team was able to keep the other at bay for the rest of the period, ending regulation time with a score of 4-4.

The overtime period went scoreless leading the two to decide the fate of the game in a shootout.

The Eagles sent out Kale Lapointe, Braeden Anderson, Jagger Bowles, Chance Abbott and Jared Williams as their shooters, but the five had no luck against Dobberthien.

The Northstars squeaked to a 5-4 victory when Garrett Glasman got his shootout attempted past Mackenzie Engel.

The Eagles’ next game is against the league’s number four Westlock Warriors.

Puck drop is at 7:30 p.m. at the Eckville Arena.
