The Fort St. John Senior Flyers had a new face in goal against the Manning Comets and it was one of the youngest, if not the youngest in the history of the club. Fort St. John Huskies goalie Logan Edwards was forced into action after regular goalies Troy Hunt and Travis McLean were unable to make the trip.
The teams were tied at one after the opening period before the Flyers took firm control in the second. They scored five goals in the frame, two of which were on the power play.
With a 6-1 lead entering the final 20 minutes, Fort St. John potted two more to go up 8-1. Some penalty trouble for the Flyers as the game wound down resulted in Manning closing the gap to 8-5 however the outcome was never in doubt.
Scoring for the Flyers were Rick Cleaver, Adam Horst (3), Brady Busche, Robbie Sidhu, Brennan Giroux, and Jeff Fast.
Edwards turned aside 21 of the 26 shots he faced for the victory.
Next on team’s schedule is a game Tuesday night at home against the Dawson Creek Canucks.
