Ross H. MacLean Flyers
The FSJ Pee Wee AA Flyers worked hard and had excellent scoring chances this past weekend but luck wasn’t on their side as they hit numerous posts and came up against some strong goal tending in the Fairview Pee Wee Tier 2 tournament.
In the first game, the Flyers met the Spirit River Rangers and started the scoring at the five-minute mark of the first period when Ralph Jarratt found some open ice and rushed in and put it in the net. The Rangers scored two before the end of the first period and three more in the second frame to take a 5-1 lead into the third period.
The Flyers didn’t score again until Ricky Bateman netted one and then Aiden Harris gave the Flyers some life when he found the net only two minutes later to make it 5-3. However, the Rangers sealed the deal with one of their own with 1:11 left in the game.
In the afternoon game, the Flyers dominated in the first half against Dawson Creek and took a 4-1 lead. Tyler Wood started the scoring with 4 minutes left in the first on a nice feed from Bateman and Jeff Bochon. Jarod Lang scored on a breakaway on a nice pass from Alex Hartman. Bateman scored one of his own from Jarratt and then Lang potted his second of the game unassisted.
In the third period the DC Canucks scored three unanswered goals to tie the game. So the Flyers ended the day one with a tie and a loss.
On Sunday morning, with the lines changed, the Flyers clicked and started the scoring when Gavin Gould netted one less than two minutes into the game on a great pass from Jordan Kosinsky. A minute later, Bochon netted one unassisted to give the Flyers a 2-0 lead. The Colts scored once before Lang got his first of the game from Harris to make it 3-1. The Flyers didn’t want the same result as the night before so they continued to pressure when defenseman James Bowie kept the puck in and rifled a shot from the point to give the Flyers their fourth goal. The Colts scored their only goal of the second period a few minutes later to make it 4-2 Lang scored his second of the game from Harris and Bochon and then Wood found the net twice once on a feed from Bateman and the second on a tip in from Hartman’s shot from the point to give the Flyers a 7-3 win. Colten Lancaster was solid in net allowing only one goal each period.
In the final game of the tournament the Flyers were outstanding in the first half of the game taking a 2-0 lead on goals from Bateman from Jarratt and Wood from Kyle Johnson. After the flood at the half-way mark the Flyers lost their momentum and the Fairview Posts were unstoppable as they scored eight unanswered goals to drop the Flyers to third place.
