The Jets seemed to know what was coming before they showed up to the NPA.
Some of them showed up late, a bunch didn’t come at all, and the 12 men on hand were more like spectators, as the Flyers cruised to a 16-2 win.
Like on Friday night, Todd Alexander led the way on Saturday, with 4 goals and 3 assists. As you might expect from such a scoreline, several other Flyers had big nights. Arlo Hadland continued his hot streak, with 3 goals and 3 assists. Dustin Kersey and Ian Munro both scored 2 goals and 2 assists. Other goals came from Brett Loney (1+3), Adam Loncan (1+4), Kip Noble (1+2), Bryan Lewis (1+2), and Jeff Fast (1+4).
The official shot count was 53-17 FSJ, while Chris McKennit suffered most of the blows in goal, starting the game and finishing it, after backup Brett Ile had to leave the game after taking two Kip Noble slapshots to the head, and suffering some mask damage (and possibly memory loss…).
Notable for Valleyview was Morgan Eaton, who added pretty assists on both Jets goals, playing as a call-up for the night.
Things get more interesting next week, with another matchup with the second place Spirit River Rangers, the Flyers’ closest opposition in the NPHL, at the NPA on Thursday night. On Friday, the Flyers host the Fairview Kings, for the last of 4 meetings this season.
