FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Huskies had a win and a loss over the weekend.
On Friday night, the Huskies fell to the Fairview Flyers on home ice at the North Peace Arena. The Huskies weren’t able to generate any offence until the third period, when Brandon Howard netted the Huskies’ lone goal assisted by Jarod Lang. Final score was 4-1.
On Saturday night in Sexsmith, the Huskies were hungry for a win.
Adam Bowie got the Pups on the board first less than four minutes in, assisted by Geoff Dick. While the Vipers evened it up just past the halfway mark of the first, Drew Fudger fired a powerplay goal past Sexsmith netminder Mason Gould to give the Huskies a one goal lead heading into the first intermission.
1:39 into the second, and the Vipers once again managed to tie things up. It wasn’t until the final minute of the frame that Brandon Howard’s goal allowed the Huskies to once again regain the lead heading into the dressing room. Thomas Webster was the helper on that goal.
The Vipers once again tied things up at the six minute mark of the third. 91 seconds later, Shawn Wilson made a solo effort to get the shot past Gould to give the Huskies the lead for the fourth time. Jacob Lang added some insurance five minutes later with a powerplay goal assisted by Gary Loewen. Sexsmith wasn’t able to force an extra period, despite pulling Gould, and the Huskies came home with a 5-3 victory.
