The Eagles Kai Verbrugge took matters into his owns hands.

The North Island Peewee Eagles found themselves trailing the Powell River Kings 4-1 with 16 minutes left in the third period of a league game at the Chilton Regional Arena in Port McNeill on Saturday afternoon.

The Eagles Kai Verbrugge took matters into his owns hands from that point, scoring off a great shot from the side of the net at 13:49. Verbrugge scored again on a beautiful breakaway deek just minutes later.
