Trackers fall to Prince George twice on the road

PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. – The NEBC Yukon Trackers were in PG for their final pair of exhibition games against the Prince George Tier 1 Midget Cougars.

The Cougars got off to an early start on Saturday afternoon, punishing the Trackers for an early charging penalty with a power play goal. Things started to get exciting, and a bit rough in the 2nd period. The Cougars jumped out to a 2-0 lead just over 5 minutes into the 2nd, before Garyn Waldie brought the Trackers back to within one on the powerplay. The Cougars answered right back with a power play goal of their own, but Connor Bowie scored once again to keep the Trackers in the game. Prince George then jumped out to a 4-2 lead with another powerplay goal. Sadly the Trackers weren’t able to capitalize on any more man advantages, including a pair of Cougars match penalties for head contact. Final score was 5-2 in favour of the Midget Cougars.

Sunday’s game was a much tamer affair with a combined total of only 22 penalty minutes for both teams compared to Saturday’s 56 minutes. The Trackers and Cougars were tied 2-2 after the first period, helped by goals from Nick Vanderfloeg and Cooper Beamish, with assists from Griffin Young, Jeridyn Loewen, Joel Bourgeois, and Aiden Craig-Steele. Sadly it wasn;t enough as the Trackers fell once again 5-2.
