Bailey Shaver took two shots to ruin the North Okanagan Knights’ evening Friday at the Armstrong Nor-Val Sports Centre.

The Marysville, Wa. 19-year-old scored on a powerplay with 90 seconds left in regulation and buried the winner at 2:31 of overtime as the Sicamous Eagles shaded the Knights 4-3.

Colin Robin (3rd), Mitchell Cobbett (1st) and Layne Greene (3rd) scored for the Knights, who dipped to 3-10-0-2 before 220 fans.

Alex Astasiewicz gave Sicamous (4-10) the first-period lead at 13:16, from Scott Robinson.

Robinson made it 2-0 on a late powerplay in the second period, assisted by Nicholas Cuglietta and Nathan Plessis. Robin responded 12 minutes later on a Knights’ powerplay, from Trent Redschlag and Ryan Moon.

Cobbett made it 2-2 early in the third and Greene put the Knights in front four minutes later.
