FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – It was a frustrating night at the rink on Tuesday for the Fort St. John Flyers. Unable to get much going through 35 minutes and down 3-0, the team battled back with goals late in the second and early in the third, but would get no closer as the Dawson Creek Canucks pulled away to a 6-3 win.
Team captain Jeff Shipton said after the game you can’t expect to do much right when you don’t come ready to play off the start.
“We just didn’t have our legs tonight. We didn’t come to play from the start of the game. Bounces weren’t going our way. When you’re not moving your feet, the puck isn’t going to bounce for you. It’s as simple as that. We weren’t working tonight,” he said.
Scoring for the Flyers were Joey Massingham, Daylen Pearson, and Josh Bruha.
The teams will do it all again on Friday in a rematch again at the North Peace Arena at 8:30 p.m.
