FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Northern Metalic Bantam Flyers ended up losing a close battle against the Grande Prairie Athletic Club yesterday.
The Bantam Flyers took to the ice at full steam against the GPAC Storm at the Pomeroy Sports Centre. John Herrington scored for the Bantam Flyers just after the halfway mark on the first period assisted by Devan Minard and Brandon Modde. In a close game with very few penalties, Fort St. John got out to a 2-0 in the second period. Wyatt Millner’s shot found the back of the Grande Prairie net after getting a pass from Duncan Ross and Hunter Brown. Grande Prairie would narrow the lead to 2-1 in the last five minutes of the second period.
In the third, it was all Grande Prairie, as the Storm scored an even-strength and a short-handed goal in the period’s first half, before hanging on to beat the Flyers 3-2.
