Innisfail Eagles split a pair of playoff games

The Innisfail Eagles escaped the weekend even in their Chinook Hockey League playoff series with the Stony Plain Eagles.

In the best-of-seven series, Innisfail opened with a 6-3 loss in Stony Plain on Saturday.

The home side opened the scoring in the first when former NHLer and Oilers legend Ryan Smyth gave Stony Plain a 1-0 lead. Innisfail forward Kyle Dorowicz tied the game eight minutes later, but a late first period goal handed the lead back to Stony Plain.

Stony Plain scored four unanswered goals in the second period to sink Innisfail, although the visitors did add two goals in the third period. Ty Clay and Tyler Beechey had the Innisfail third period goals.

Innisfail won a 6-5 OT thriller at home Sunday to even the series. Jake Mullen made 51 saves on 56 shots for a stellar performance and Mike Winther scored with 1:32 left in overtime for the win.

Five other Innisfail players scored in victory, including Zach Franco, Beechey, Zane Jones, Joe Vandermeer and Ty Clay. Daniel Nichols also added three assists on the night.

Game three goes Saturday in Stony Plain before the teams return to Innisfail on Sunday for game four.
