The Fort St. John Flyers were looking for a bounce back game yesterday against the Dawson Creek Canucks after losing to the team Tuesday night in Fort St. John but things didn’t go according to plan. The game was tied at one after the first period but things fell off the rails in the second.
The Canucks scored three times in a 9:09 span to start the period, and six goals overall in the frame with three goals in total coming on the power play. The Flyers added two of their own as they trailed 7-3.
The Flyers attempted to claw back with two early third period goals to close the gap to two, but it would be all Dawson Creek the rest of the way as the scored another three markers to round out the scoring at 10-5.
The Flyers will look to end their two game losing skid on Saturday when they take on the Falher Pirates. The next home game for Fort St. John is next Friday against Spirit River.
Shots were 37-31 to end the game.
