The Sidewinders led 3-1 early, but the Eagles tied the game in the second half.
“It was good to see,” coach Ian McDougall said. “It was almost like they had a 12th man with the refs, but after that last red card (against a Southwest player with 10 minutes left), that kind of let the air out of their tires. It means a lot that we were able to gut out a win.”
