Atom Eagles win first playoff game

The North Island Atom Eagles won their first playoff game in a high scoring, back and forth clash

The North Island Atom Eagles won their first playoff game in a high scoring, back and forth clash against the

Nanaimo Clippers on Saturday, Feb. 28, at the Doug Bondue Arena in Port Alice, but “it wasn’t their best

game,” said Coach Doug Grant. “We tried to play too much as individuals.” The Eagles got on the scoreboard

first with a goal at 10:01 from Kai Verbrugge, and The Clippers responded back with goals at 6:03 and 4:08 to

take the lead 2-1. The Eagles’ Zachary Spafford scored with 2:13 left to tie it up, only for the Clippers to score

again with 40 seconds left to take a 3-2 lead going into the 2nd period.The Eagles’ Ethan Fuller scored two

goals in the 2nd period to take a 4-3 lead, but it was the 3rd period where the action really picked up. The

Eagles scored six goals courtesy of Spafford (x3), Jack Barrett, William Grant, and Tye Morash to take a 10-7

lead, wrestling the playoff win away from the Clippers’ grasp. Grant commented after the game that “We

managed to pull out the win, but we will have to play better in the semi-finals.”
