DAWSON CREEK, B.C. – The Fort St. John Flyers were victorious in Dawson Creek on Tuesday night for the first time this season.
The Flyers scored the first of three goals in the opening period courtesy Reid Campbell who opened the scoring at 14:47, assisted by Joey Massingham. Campbell added his second of the night with 5:15 to play after depositing a pass from Sam Brennen and Robbie Sidhu. Lien Miller-Jeannotte made it 3-0 three minutes later after some hard work along the boards by Massingham and Sidhu.
The visitors restored their three-goal advantage when Sidhu found the back of the net shorthanded with Miller-Jeannotte and Brennan collecting the helpers at 16:52. Rick Cleaver got in on the action midway through the middle stanza when he bulged the twine off a feed from Eric Allarie and Jeff Fast for goal number five.
Miller-Jeannotte capped off the scoring with 7:56 to go in the final frame, Sidhu with the lone helper. Travis McLean stood tall in the pipes as he stopped all eleven shots fired his way. Final score Flyers 6- Sr. Canucks 3.
Robbie Sidhu led the charge with four points while Campbell and Miller-Jeannotte each had two goals and an assist.
“We had a short bench,” said General Manager Lee Hartman. “The guys played good and Travis played great.”
Next up for the team is a date with the Grande Prairie Athletics on Thursday at the North Peace Arena. Puck drop is at 8:30 p.m.
