On the first day of the Eagles Alumni weekend the Eagles fall 2-1 in a shootout against the Idaho Steelheads. The Eagles gain a point with the shootout, and brings their record to 4-2-1-1 on the season; placing them in second place in the Pacific division behind the first place Utah Grizzlies.
Luke Salazar would be the first to find the back of the net and take a 1-0 lead for the Eagles early on in the first period, which would be the sole goal in the first frame. The score remained the same through the second period, but quickly could have changed if Kent Simpson did not make a few amazing saves to keep the Eagles with the lead at the end of the second period. Early on into the final frame of the game, the Steelheads would tie things up with a quick goal from Jefferson Dahl.
Forcing the game into overtime to decide a winner. However, that would not be the case as neither team would be able to seal the deal in sudden death; and the Steelheads would ultimately win the game in shootout.
Be sure to attend the Alumni game tomorrow night at 4:30pm at the Budweiser Events Center, before the Eagles will get another shot at the Steelheads following the Alumni game starting at 7:05pm.
