The Senior Flyers posted a 6-3 win, in the first installment of a two-game exhibition series against the Whitehorse Huskies on Friday night.
Andrew Derton led the way, scoring two goals and an assist, while Todd Alexander, Evan Boire, Jeff Fast, and Matt Shuya also scored.
Ryan Gleason, Kirk Gale, and Kristian Jefkins responded for the Huskies, who improved gradually as the game wore on.
Friday’s matchup was a feisty and physical game throughout, and also had a pretty good pace, particularly in the first period.
Despite allowing 6 goals, Whitehorse goaltender Cory McEachran may have been the player of the game, making several showstopping saves, and keeping his team in contention.
Clayton Pool recorded his fourth win in as many games in the Flyers’ goal, looking confident and poised when called upon, though not being nearly as busy as his counterpart.
