The Fort St. John Huskies got off to a fast start against the Beaverlodge Blades yesterday and never looked back. They opened the scoring just over three and a half minutes into the game, and cruised to an 8-3 victory
The game was well in hand after the first period with a 4-1 lead, and that was increased to 6-1 after the second.
The teams exchanged two goals each in the third as the Huskies also outshot the Blades 56-20.
After the game head coach Gary Alexander said while the physical aspects of the game still need to be improved, Xs and Os wise the Huskies did their job pretty well.
“We didn’t run around doing our own thing for a change. We actually started working on the systems we’ve been teaching. It was good to see that. We still have some improvements to make on our physical parts of the game but it was a much better effort on paying attention to what we’ve been saying in practice,” he said.
Scoring for the Huskies were Thomas Webster (2), Cayle Bell, Austin Braid, Jordan Harder (2), Keenan Larson, and Adam Bowie.
The Huskies will be back in action tonight at the North Peace Arena at 8 against the Sexsmith Vipers.
