Back-to-back losses drop Huskies to fifth place

After losing Saturday by a score of 6-2, the Huskies entered round two with the Wolverines in a Sunday afternoon showdown, but unfortunately, were unable to tie the weekend series, losing once again, by a score of 6-4.

Despite back-to-back losses, the Huskies can take some positivity home with them regarding their power play. Sunday, all four goals scored by Fort St. John were with the man advantage, with rookie defenseman Dave Marshell registering a point on every Huskies tally. Marshell finished the game with a goal and three assists. Huskies Captain Cody Hildebrand also had a strong Sunday, earning a goal and two assists in the loss.

As the huskies were unable to register a point over the weekend, they were unfortunately passed in the NWJHL standings by the Sexsmith Vipers, who now occupy fourth place by a one point margin over fifth place Fort St. John.

The Huskies will look to regain their former fourth place position Friday, Oct. 28, when they welcome the 1-7 Dawson Creek Junior Canucks to Fort St. John. The game will be at the North Peace Arena and will begin at 8 p.m.
