The N.E. B.C. and Yukon Trackers were on the road for two games this weekend, a double header against Fort McMurray starting on Saturday. The Trackers got their weekend off to a good start as they came away with a 4-3 win.

They started the game strong by opening the scoring just over four minutes in, and added another just past the midway point of the first. Fort McMurray would get one of their own in the frame to cut the Tracker lead to one.

In the second the Barons would tie the game with six and a half minutes remaining.

The next day the Trackers were able to keep the momentum going and wound up with a 6-2 win the next day.

The teams traded goals early in the first, but in the latter stages of the opening frame the Trackers netted another two for a 3-1 lead.

They pulled away from the Barons in the second with two goals to lead 5-1. The teams would exchange a goal each in the third to round out the scoring.

The next game for the Trackers is scheduled for Friday night when they host the Peace River Royals.
