The Surrey Eagles' recent run of success hit a speedbump on the Coquihalla Highway Saturday.
One day after playing to a 3-3 draw at South Surrey Arena, the Eagles came up short in their return match with the West Kelowna Warriors, falling 5-3 in B.C. Hockey League action.
The loss in regulation time ended Surrey's unbeaten streak at eight games, their first such setback since the Christmas break.
Saturday in West Kelowna, the Eagles led 3-2 midway through the second period only to have the Warriors capitalize on a pair of Surrey turnovers and score two goals 57 seconds apart.
West Kelowna added an insurance marker in the third period to ice the win. Devon Toews, Michael Stenerson and Trevor Cameron provided the goals for Surrey.
The two teams began the weekend in South Surrey where the Warriors scored three goals in the third period to erase a 3-1 Surrey lead and salvage a 3-3 draw. Brady Shaw scored twice for Surrey and Brett Mulcahy added a solo marker.
The Eagles are back in action Friday when they take on the archrival Chiefs in Chilliwack. The Eagles then return to their nest to face Langley Saturday (7 p.m.) and Salmon Arm Sunday (4 p.m.).
