In Sprue Grove versus the undefeated Saints, the visitors put forth a valiant effort but fell short losing by the score of 3-2, after the home side scored two goals within a five-minute span in the second period.

The Trackers sit in second place in the Bouchier Division standings with a 7-6-1 record, 10 points back of the Peace River Royals.

“We went on this three-game road trip with 12 skaters due to injuries and a suspension. During practice we worked on a really passive 1-2-2 which the boys picked up quick and put it to use this weekend,” said head coach Gerard Dicaire. “The team played well all weekend and we fell short in our final two games but the coaching staff is pleased with the effort put forth and working through adversity with the current injury bug.”

Next up for the Trackers is a date with the Fort Mc.Murray Barons on Friday night at the Pomeroy Sports Centre. Puck drop is at 7:30 p.m.
