FALHER, A.B. – The Fort St. John Flyers got their first loss of the NPHL season on Saturday night.

The Flyers travelled to Falher for a second tilt against the Pirates, a team the Flyers defeated on home ice back on November 5th. Trailing 1-0 after 20 minutes due to a powerplay goal from Falher, the Flyers quickly found themselves at a 2-0 deficit after another Fahler goal with the man-advantage. Fort St. John quickly got back in the game courtesy of a pair of powerplay goals of their own.

Jeff Shipton replied for the Flyers less than a minute after Falher’s second goal, assisted by Arlo Hadland and Rick Cleaver. Cleaver evened things up for Fort St. John just over five minutes later assisted by Robbie Sidhu and Adam Horst. Shipton scored his second of the game before the frame was over, assisted by Horst and Cleaver to give the Flyers a 3-2 lead after Act 2.
