Although the Flyers ended last night’s game with a 2-2 tie, they needed to win by three points in order to take first place. The first game on Tuesday ended 4-2 in favor of the Dawson Creek Canucks and total points determined the ultimate winner.

The first game on Tuesday had a vigorous start with Logan Daneluk scoring at 10:29 in the first period. He was assisted by Wyatt Anderson and Jordan Harder. Dawson Creek replied with three unanswered goals before Dallas Trim halted the blitz with a goal at 9:23 in the second period, assisted by Anderson and Kyle Leonard. Dawson Creek scored another point in the third period ending the game at 4-2, a sizeable margin given the close rivalry of the two teams.

Dawson Creek scored at 6:04 in the first and the battle continued back and forth throughout the second period with no scoring. Even though the Flyers outshot the Canucks 36/22 they couldn’t capitalize on it or take advantage of the powerplay. The Canucks scored one in the third ending the contest 2-2 and giving the opposition the win by total points.

Congratulations to the Knights of Columbus Bantam AA Flyers on a terrific season.
