The Midget Tracker-Flyers handled Maroon, but not Gold, in a 1-2 weekend against the Calgary Edge teams.

The NEBC and Yukon squad began the weekend in style, with a 3-2 overtime win over Edge Maroon, on Friday night at the North Peace Arena.  Brett Roulston fired a scorcher over Calgary’s goalie Lewis Libin’s shoulder in the extra frame, to give the Tier 1 Midgets their first win over an Edge team this year.

Daylen Pearson and Logan Daneluk scored the regulation goals, while Ryley Carter turned away 20 shots for the win.

On Saturday, the Trackers took a shot at Edge Gold, but couldn’t dig out of a 4-0 hole, in a 6-2 final.  Tyler Akeroyd and Cody Poggenpohl scored for NEBC in a losing effort.

Ryley Carter got to start his third game in a row on Sunday in Dawson Creek, in the rematch against Edge Gold, but Edge goaltender Archie hall bested him by one save, in a 4-3 Edge win.

The Trackers got within one goal with five minutes remaining, but couldn’t jam in the winner, despite a late powerplay opportunity.  Tyler Akeroyd led the way offensively on Sunday, with two goals and an assist.

The Tracker-Flyers play a pair of games in Fort McMurray next weekend.
