FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Huskies were on the road Thursday night, November 28, as they took on the Fairview Flyers.

In the third frame, when it came to scoring, the case would be the same for the Huskies as at 4:44 remaining in the period, Jeridyn Loewen would score a goal on Fairview, with an assist by Jared Winkel, making the score tied at two apiece.
That tie would not be broken, leading the game into overtime.
Then with 3:53 remaining in overtime, Jared Loewen would score on the Flyers, with an assist by Brady Marzocco, winning the game 3-2 over Fairview.
