FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Northeast B.C./Yukon Trackers are back home for a two-game series with the Whitecourt Wolverines this weekend.
The Trackers are coming off a central Alberta road trip where they posted a 1-1-1 record. The team started off the weekend with a win in Strathcona to push their winning streak to six games before a loss in Edmonton versus the Gologo Wear out of Edmonton and a tie in Camrose.
This will be the first meeting with the division sharing Wolverines and according to the bench boss, the boys need to shore up some areas of their game after the swing through Alberta for their first clash with the Wolverines.
“This will be the first time we get a look at Whitecourt in the regular season,” said head coach Gerard Dicairie. “They’re a team that plays some pretty sound defence even though they don’t score a lot. That is something we will work on this week, as well as things from the past weekend. We missed the nets a lot and had too many miss fires.”
Saturday’s date with Whitecourt gets underway at 4:30 p.m. at the Pomeroy Sport Centre, while Sunday’s affair switches over to the North Peace Arena. Puck drop is at 10:00 a.m.
