Surrey Eagles drop game to Wild

Eagles lose 8-0 to Wenatchee on Sunday at South Surrey Arena.

A win will have to wait.

The Surrey Eagles’ on-ice woes continued last weekend, as the struggling BC Hockey League team dropped an 8-0 decision to the Wenatchee Wild Sunday evening at South Surrey Arena.

The loss was the 12th in a row for the Eagles, whose losing streak has now extended beyond a month; the team’s last victory came Oct. 20 against Langley.

The losses have dropped the Birds to the bottom of the BCHL’s Mainland Division standings with a 4-21 win-loss record.

Defence has been spotty at best for Surrey this season – they’ve given up 126 goals against, which is worst in the league – and while they gave up another eight against the Wild Sunday, offence was also a problem.

The Eagles managed just 18 shots on Wenatchee netminder Chase Perry, who recorded his third shutout of the season.

Forbes Ploszaj was between the pipes for the Eagles, and was peppered with 41 shots on goal from the Wild, who were making their first-ever regular-season appearance at South Surrey Arena.

The visitors jumped out to a lead early, scoring two first-period goals just five seconds apart. In the third, the Wild scored three more – one at five-on-five, one shorthanded and one with the man-advantage – and did the same in the third period.

August Von Ungern led the attack with two goals and an assist for Wenatchee, who jumped into first place in the Mainland Division with the win.

Surrey travelled a few hours up the highway for a game today (Wednesday) against the Merritt Centennials, and return home to South Surrey Arena Friday for a home game against the West Kelowna Warriors.
