Trackers in tough as they battle two division leaders this weekend


FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Northeast B.C./Yukon Trackers conclude January with a pair of games versus division leaders this weekend.

The Trackers are coming off a two-game sweep of the visiting Whitecourt Wolverines as they outscored them 12-5.

The boys welcome the CanAccom Division-leading Beaumont Braves on Saturday before heading out to Peace River on Sunday for a clash with the Bouchier Division-leading Royals, who the Trackers trail by three points.

“We currently are sitting second in our division and fourth in the league,” said head coach Gerard Dicaire. “This is a big weekend for us in the standings and taking a step forward heading towards provincials. Beaumont and Peace River are second and third in the league so this will be a great test for the boys. The focus will have to be a consistent effort for a full sixty minutes, playing the game the proper way and not taking any steps backwards, always moving forward.”

Saturday’s tilt with the Braves gets underway at 4:30 p.m. while Sunday’s contest in Peace River starts at noon, which can be watched online on the team’s Ustream channel: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/nebctrackers
