Prince George didn’t get the start to their current three-game road trip that they wanted, losing by a score of 4-1 to the Surrey Eagles.
Goaltender Evan DeBrouwer drops his second-straight start between the pipes, making 29 saves on 33 shots, while Surrey’s Daniel Davidson stopped 14 shots in the contest.
Surrey opened the scoring seven-in-a-half minutes into the first period when John Wesley scored his fifth goal of the season; he would later tally an apple three minutes later on a power-play goal by Desi Burgart.
Burgart would add one more on an assist from former Victoria Royal, Ty Westgard to give the Eagles a 3-1 lead after 20 minutes.
Westgard would then finish the scoring at 13:03 of the second period, with Jackson Ross and Perry Winfree assisting.
Prince George was not able to register a comeback in the third, losing their second game of the 2017-18 season.
The Spruce Kings are now 4-2-1-0, while Surrey improves to 2-4-1-1.
The Eagles swept the game star honours with Burgart, Wesley, and Westgard taking First, Second, and Third respectively.
Surrey captain Jordan Robert was named the Fortis BC Energy Player of the Game.
The Spruce Kings will now head over the Fraser River to Coquitlam to catch the Express Saturday, 7:00 PM at the Poirier Sports and Leisure Complex.
Prince George will travel to the Interior Division Sunday afternoon to face the Merritt Centennials, at 2:00 PM.
