Ross H. MacLean Flyers Report
The Ross H. MacLean Pee Wee Tier II Flyers battled hard and showed good determination in the William’s Lake tournament this past weekend. The long bus ride didn’t seem to hinder the Flyers as they scored four minutes into their match against the Terrace Kermodes, when Gavin Gould netted one on a great feed from Tyler Wood. Terrace tied the game five minutes later but the Flyers right back with two of their own when Ralph Jarratt and Nolan Legace each potted one, both unassisted, to the end the first frame 3-1. Salina Edwards scored the only goal in the second period when she netted one from a brilliant feed from Ricky Bateman when the Flyers were shorthanded.
The Flyers gained confidence and continued to pressure Terrace when Brysan Eklund scored four minutes into the third period and then Legace scored his second from Jarratt and Bateman on the only powerplay of the game. Terrace was able to slip their second goal past Colten Lancaster, with only two minutes left to make the final score 6-2. Ralph Jarratt earned the player of the game for the Flyers.
In their second game of the tournament the Flyers dominated the game from start to finish and scored twenty goals to Fort St. James one goal against Lane Delfs. The Flyers had thirteen different goal scorers and every player contributed to the scoring with twenty-four assist given out as the Flyers worked on their passing. Chase Allam scored twice and helped to control the play and was the player of the game for the Flyers.
Later that afternoon, the Flyers met the home town William’s Lake Timberwolves and scored the first goal when Legace found the net on a nice pass from Jeff Bochon. The Timberwolves tied it up twenty seconds later and the rest of the period was scoreless. The Flyers regained the lead when Bochon scored his own on the power play. William’s Lake was able to tie it up eight minutes later but the Flyers were able to net two more before the period was over when Bateman banged one in from Bochon and Legace on the power play. Aiden Harris gave the Flyers a little breathing room when he scored from Wood’s feed to make it 4-2.
In the third, the Timberwolves closed the gap when they scored at the twelve-minute mark but the Flyers didn’t give up and Bochon found the empty net on a nice passes from Lang and Hartman to make the final 5-3. Colten Lancaster earned the win between the pipes and the win gave the Flyers a place in the final on Sunday and Jeff Bochon earned player of the game with his two goals and two assists.
The Flyers had some difficulty getting going on Sunday against a strong Kelowna team. The Westside Warriors scored three minutes in to make it 1-0. The Warriors made it 2-0 on the power play eight minutes later but the Flyers continued to battle and Lane Delfs was solid in net making numerous great saves.
The Warriors scored two more to make it 4-0 after two frames but the Flyers found the net when Bochon banged one in from Hartman’s shot from the point, on the power play. The goal helped to get the Flyers going and they had some good scoring chances after that. However, it was the only goal the Flyers could muster and Kelowna added two more to make it a 6-1 final. Lane Delfs was the player of the game for the Flyers and Jarod Lang won the most sportsmanlike player.
