The Fort St. John Petroleum Association Flyers were back on home ice after nearly a month of playing road games. After winning eight in a row during the pre-season, the team had lost six straight on the road leading up to Sunday’s game against the Sexsmith Vipers.

Lane DeRose got things rolling for the team after a fortunate bounce hit the skate of teammate Lance Aylward. Aylward got a second assist in the opening period after setting up Tyler Bueckert.

The team increased their lead to three after a shot from Tyler Bueckert resulted in a rebound chance for Reid Jacobs who found the back of the net. Sexsmith made things 3-1, but Aiden Craig-Steele found Jacobs again afterwards for his second marker of the period.

In third period Aiden Craig-Steele had a goal where he bent down low, scooped the puck up flat onto his stick and as he moved from behind the net out front, just stuffed the puck up into the top shelf to go up four. The Flyers rounded out the scoring when when Kyle Robinson found the back of the net.

Next on their slate is a game in Dawson Creek on Saturday.
