FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Huskies fell in their second game of a weekend double-header on home ice against the North Peace Navigators yesterday afternoon.

Taking on the top-ranked NWJHL team on Saturday, the Huskies won that match 5-3. However, the Huskies were a bit outgunned yesterday, largely due to being without several key players. Brandon Howard ended up with a suspension for a slew-foot right at the closing buzzer on Saturday night, and won’t be back in the line-up until December 10th.

Drew Fudger scored in the first period assisted by Jared Loewen and Matthew Apsassin to keep it a 1-1 game after 20 minutes. Backup Tavis Viens also had some phenomenal saves early in his second start of the season, keeping the Huskies to within two goals after forty minutes. Jacob Lang got another tally in the third to get the Dogs to within one, assisted by Fudger and Gary Loewen. In a last-ditch attempt to tie the game, the Huskies pulled Viens for the extra attacker, but North Peace scored an empty-netter to get the win 4-2.
