Flyers impress in Grande Prairie

Advertisement

 
 
The Flyers had a fairly complete 60-minute effort on Saturday, as they beat the Athletics 6-1 in Grande Prairie.
 
Andrew Derton scored a goal and two assists, with Jeff Shipton, Ian Munro, Matt Shuya, Adam Horst, and Tyler Loney also finding the back of the net.
 
The Flyers worked hard in the game, and seem to be playing more typical ‘Flyers hockey’ as of late. “Tonight was really good” said Adam Horst after the game. “Defensively we’re coming together a lot better, and everyone’s doing a lot better positionally.”
 
Kurt Woodward scored the lone goal for Grande Prairie, on a powerplay with about 3 minutes remaining in the third.
 
Woodward’s goal broke the shutout bid for Derek Mettauer, though the netminder seemed more concerned with just finishing the game. He was struggling with a lower-body injury, but trooped on, with Troy Hunt also sidelined with an injury.   “I think that’s actually helped us the last few games” suggested Horst. “We’re just doing our best to try and help him out, and it brings everyone back to looking after our own zone.”
 
The Flyers wrap up the NPHL regular season with a pair of home games. On Thursday night (Feb. 4) they host Dawson Creek, before the final game of the season against Grande Prairie on Saturday (Feb. 6).
