The Fort St. John Senior Flyers finally know who they will face in the second round of the NPHL playoffs.
They got the answer Thursday night as the first round playoff between the Peace River Stampeders and the Falher Pirates came to an end. The series was tied at two games apiece going into the deciding game Thursday. Falher came out on top in game five…we are still waiting on the official score, but the last update showed Falher had a 11-3 lead with 5 minutes left in the game. **As of 7am we still do not have an official score from the league.
With that series all wrapped up, that means the Pirates will face off against Grande Prairie and the Flyers will play Spirit River.
*** The schedule has now been released for the semi final series between the Flyers and Rangers:
Game 1 – Sunday Mar. 1 – 7:30pm @ FSJ
Game 2 – Tuesday Mar. 3 – 8:30pm @ SR
