SURREY â€“ The Surrey Eagles’ two-game unbeaten streak ended on Sunday (Oct. 12) when the Trail Smoke Eaters scored four unanswered third-period goals to win 7-4.
The Eagles ended the first frame down 2-1 with a goal from captain Chase McMurphy sandwiched between markers from Griffyn Martin and Scott Davidson.
The second period went more to plan for head coach Blaine Neufeld as the Eagles finished the period up 4-3 thanks to two goals from Ben Vikich.
But the tide turned in the third, starting with a short-handed goal from Craig Martin early in the period, before Hunter Atchison, Stephen Ryan and Bryan Basilico scored before the final buzzer.
The Eagles’ McMurphy and Vikich finished the game with three points each, while the latter was named the gameâ€™s second star.
Surreyâ€™s next game is against the Langley Rivermen on Wednesday (Oct. 15).
