INNISFAIL — Jason Nopper’s shootout goal was the winner as the Innisfail Eagles slipped past the Stony Plain Eagles 2-1 in a Chinook Hockey League game Friday.

Nopper was the third Innisfail shooter to beat Stony Plain netminder Wade Waters and the ninth overall shooter for the host team. Pete Vandermeer and Tyson Keller scored earlier in the shootout, while Stony Plain shooters Brendan Baumgartner and Cole Gibson beat Innisfail goaltender Bryce Luker.

Stony Plain’s Scott Enders snapped a scoreless tie with a power-play marker at 12:08 of the third period. Chris Neurauter replied for Innisfail just two minutes later, which set up a scoreless overtime frame and the ensuing shootout. Luker made 33 saves during regulation time, while Waters stopped 39 shots for the visitors.

The CHL Saturday games — including Bentley at Okotoks — were postponed due to road conditions.
