Flyers defeated at preseason game in Dawson Creek

DAWSON CREEK, B.C. – The Fort St. John Senior Flyers had a difficult start to the preseason exhibition as they visited the Dawson Creek Senior Canucks on Saturday.

President of the Flyers, Paul van Nostrand, says it was fast play as the Flyers outshot the Canucks with 39-33 shots on goal but were not fast enough as the Canucks took an early lead in the game with 2-0 at the end of the first period.

In the second, Dawson Creek managed to score 2 goals from Kevin Hope and John Wayne Howes, making the score four-nothing.

Then with less than 6 minutes to go,  Flyers player Lien Miller scored a goal with assistance from Riley Muise.

In period three, Brandon Unrah replaced Ty Gullickson as the Flyers’ goalie.

Throughout the third, the Flyers put up a fight as Jordan Harder and Daylen Pearson managed to score two extra goals.

Unfortunately, these goals were not enough as the Canucks scored three more points.

Overall, the Canucks defeated the Flyers 7-3.

“It was a pretty fast-paced game. Dawson Creek played well, we played pretty well. We missed a lot of pretty good chances”, said van Nostrand.

The Flyers are looking ahead as they will be hosting the Canucks in their first preseason home opener this Saturday, October 20 at the North Peace Arena. Puck drop is 7:30 p.m.
