Power-play goals in the second period by Mark Reners and RJ Reed gave the Bandits the margin they’d need as they held off the Eagles who staged something of a third-period rally.
Brady Shaw got Surrey on the board in the final frame but a penalty shot goal by Brooks’ Cam Maclise restored the three-goal Bandits edge and essentially sealed the win. Drew Best had a late reply for Surrey.
Bandits netminder Michael Fredrick made 40 saves in the victory while Michael Santaguida turned aside 28 for Surrey.
The Eagles are next in action Monday at 7 p.m. when they take in the Steinbach Pistons of Manitoba.

The teams traded two goals each in the first with Jeremy Johnson and Tayler Thompson tallying for the Terriers and Greg Fraser and Matt Grant scoring for the Clips.
Early in the second, Colton Dahlen gave the host club a 3-2 lead going into the final frame and it looked like it might hold until Johnson got his second of the night at 13:11 of the third. Devon McMullen potted thw winner with just under four minutes to go.
