The Fort St. John Senior Flyers are two for two to begin their North Peace Hockey League season. The team played their first road game last night and came away with a 4-2 win over the Spirit River Rangers despite having only 11 skaters.
The Rangers opened the scoring just after the four minute mark of the first period, but before time expired in the frame the Flyers tied the game with 35 seconds to go.
Having stolen momentum with the late first period marker, the Flyers took the lead in the second four and a half minutes in on the power play. They’d increase their lead to two with just over six minutes left, however the Rangers closed the gap to one before the intermission.
Fort St. John rounded out the scoring in the third with the lone marker in the frame.
Scoring for the Flyers were Tyrell Fenton (2), Brennen Giroux, and Robbie Sidhu.
Travis McLean stood tall in his first official start as a Flyer, stopping 43 of 45 shots.
The two teams will do battle again back at the North Peace Arena November 13.
