DAWSONC CREEK, B.C. – The Northeast BC/Yukon Trackers got another game in the ‘win’ column over the weekend when they hosted the PAC Saints at the Dawson Creek Memorial Arena on Saturday.
The Trackers got started with a power play goal from Connor Bowie less than two minutes in on a feed from Nathan Bragg. Bowie added his second goal of the game nearly 16 minutes later to give the Trackers a 2-0 lead on a pass from Reid Jacobs and Curtis Hammond.
In the second period, the Saints would finally break Tyler McArthur’s shutout with a power play goal of their own, but Trackers captain Joel Bourgeois would answer back for Northeast BC just over a minute and a half later with his own power play goal from Jeridyn Loewen. The quick see-saw battle continued as PAC scored a minute after Bourgeois, but Bowie would once again add some insurance for the Trackers with a hat-trick tally assisted by Hammond at the 5:18 mark. Bourgeois added his second of the game in the final minute of the second period assisted by Bowie and Loewen to give the Trackers a comfortable 5-2 lead after forty minutes.
In the third period, the Trackers outshot the Saints 14-10, and Nick Vanderploeg scored the Trackers’ sixth goal in the last five minutes as Hammond got his third assist to help the Trackers to a 6-2 victory.
The Trackers are back on home ice on Friday, December 16th when they host the Edmonton South Side Athletic Club. Puck drop is at the North Peace Arena at 12:30 p.m.
