It was a rollercoaster ride of emotions for the Flint Energy Bantam “B” Flyers this past weekend.
Saturday morning, the Flyers braved the icy elements by boarding a bus taking them to both LaCrete and High Level Alta. for two All Peace League games.
The day brought an emotional low. The Flyers were hosted by the first place LaCrete Lumberjacks and received a far from friendly welcome. The Lumberjacks opened the game with five unanswered goals in the first period, before Brandon Howard finally netted one for Fort St. John.
The second period must have felt like déjà vu for the Flyers. Six more goals were scored on them, while Kyle Johnson was the only player able to score for Fort St. John in the frame.
The Flyers were able to hold the Lumberjacks to only two goals in the third, scoring one themselves for a 13-3 final score.
On Sunday, the rollercoaster headed skyward for the Flyers when they visited High Level. With a 13-3 loss fresh on their minds, the Flyers paid the feeling forward.
The Flyers scored three goals in the first period, four in the second and four more in the third, earning an 11-0 shutout against High Level.
Jarod Lang set the tone with a five goal, one assist performance. Tyler Wood also had a five point night, with two goals and three helpers, with multiple other Flyers recoding multi-point games.
In between the pipes, Evan O’Neill was awarded the shutout.
