Eagles fall short in OT on the road

SOUTH SURREY — The Surrey Eagles are still looking for their first away win this season after losing 4-3 in overtime in Langley on Wednesday (Oct. 15).

The Rivermen led 1-0 after a late first-period power-play goal by Kevan Kilistoff.

The Eagles didn’t respond until early in the third when rookie Ty Westgard scored an unassisted goal.

The final four minutes of the game was a barnburner with both teams scoring twice more to send the game to an extra frame. The Eagles third period goals came from assistant captain Joseph Drapluk and Spencer Unger.

Langley’s Jacob Zeleznikar ended the game in overtime, scoring with 1:44 remaining in the period.

Surrey’s goalie Christian Short was named the first star after stopping 55 of 59 shots.

The Eagles next game is at home to the Coquitlam Express. The puck drops at 4 p.m. on Sunday.
