The Eckville Midget Eagles continue to be the in the top class of their division after scorching Chestermere 10-4 on Sunday, February 5.
The game, which started with a very competitive first period, was busted open in the second period – with the Eagles refusing to look back on their home ice.
Eagles Brett Westin, Brandt Seland and Ethan Holub would all notch two goals a piece. Their team mates – Evan Sparrow, Zachary Huble, Brody Judson and Tyler Cowan would all add goals of their own in a game that saw seven different goal scorers. Six different Eagles would have three points on the evening and three others would notch two in the game, which was generous to personal statistics.
Eagles goalie, Wade Pattison, would stop 55 shots throughout the night.
The win was much needed after Eckville dropped their first game of the weekend on February 3 against RMAA. Braidon Westin would be the lone Eagle goal-scorer on that weekend.
The Eagles have an overall record of 6-6-4. Despite the sub .500 record, they have managed to score 12 more goals than their opponents over the course of their 16 games.
Braiden Westin leads the team with a resounding 40 points, while Brett Westin is second with 22. Seven different Eagles have double-digit point totals so far this season.
Wade Pattison has a record of 4-3-2 with a GAA of 3.40, while backup Lincoln Tisdale is 1-4-2 with GAA of 3.65.
The Eagles play their next home game on Saturday, February 11 once again against RMAA. The Eagles will have a chance to grab a win against their rivals after RMAA bested them in the previous two meetings.
