FORT MCMURRAY, A.B. – The Fort St. John Northern Metalic Bantam Flyers were in Fort McMurray over the Thanksgiving Weekend for a pair of games against the Bantam Oil Barons.

The Flyers came out strong in their first game on Saturday, scoring three goals in the first period. Despite playing against a much larger team that used their size to try to grind down their opponents, the Bantam Flyers used speed and skill to slow down the Barons to take the win by a decisive score of 5-1.

The Flyers got back on the ice for their second game the next morning, when it became apparent that the Fort Mac team was out for revenge. The Barons’ forechecking kept the smaller team from the Energetic City hemmed in their own defensive zone for extended periods of time. After trailing 4-1 at the end of the first, the Bantam Flyers fought hard the next two periods. Sadly the bounces needed to shift momentum didn’t fall in their favour, and they ended with a 6-2 loss.
