On day one, they came out on fire and defeated the Casselman Embrun Ice dogs 8-0 in their first match of the day. Onto day two, the team went head-to-head against the Osgoode Richmond Romans, who proved to be a worthy opponent. The Eagles showed their determination and perseverance, scoring late in the third period to capture a 3-2 win. In their second game of the day, the Eagles took on the Arnprior Packers and recorded a 7-0 win which advanced them to the quarterfinals on Sunday.
