SLAP SHOT- Tyler Cowan took this huge shot against Chestermere.

Midget Eagles soar to victory against Chestermere

The Midget Eagles Hockey team is back on track after a convincing win over Chestermere.

After some early season hiccups, the Midget Eagles Hockey team is back on track after a convincing win over Chestermere.

The Eagles started off a little shaky with Okotoks notching two early goals, however Eckville would rally and never look back as they soared to an 8-3 victory on home ice.

Eagle Braiden Westin would lead the team with four points three goals and one assist; while Brandt Seland would follow him closely with three points two goals and one assist. Dylan Rangen would notch a goal and two assists for three points of his own and Jacob Sanche would score the other goal adding an assist of his own.

Nine Eagles players would finish with at least one point in the evening. Eagles goalie Wade Pattison stopped 28 of 31 shots.

The Eagles go into the holiday break with the same goals they had at the beginning of season.

“We are aiming to be in the top,” Dale Cowan said, he added Okotoks and High Country will be two true tests for an already trialed Eagles squad.

Eagles centre Evan Sparrow previously reinforced his coaches aspirations by saying the team should finish the rest of the league undefeated and finish “top of the league”.

The Eagles currently sit at an uncomfortable 2-3-2 in league play and look to turn it around after the break when they play Sylvan Lake on January 5 at the Eckville Arena. They then play their main competition, Okotoks, the next day in a tough back-to-back schedule.
