1-for-2 weekend for Senior Flyers

Win first game at home versus Grimshaw; fall in close tough road battle in Valleyview
It was a .500 weekend for the Fort St. John Senior Flyers with a home win against Grimshaw and road loss in Valleyview.

It proved to be fourth time lucky for the Fort St. John Senior Flyers Friday night at the North Peace Arena.

After dropping their first three games of the season at home, the Flyers beat the Grimshaw Huskies 7-3 to add a second game to the win column.

Jared Winkel and Nolan Lagace each scored twice to secure the win – Cayle Bell, Joey Massingham, and Adam Horst added the others.

Edward Stotz earned his first win of the year between the pipes.

It was a much tougher game Saturday night, however.

Gary Loewen would score twice while Alex Nimmo would add a goal and an assist in a 6-5 loss to Valleyview.

Dawson Phillips and Lien Miller-Jeannotte would pull to the Flyers to within reach in the third period, but the Jets would hold on for the win.

Fort St. John (2-6) are in Grande Prairie (5-2) Thursday to take on the A’s.

They return home Saturday to face the 2-and-7 Spirit River Rangers for Teddy Bear Toss Night.

Puck drop is 8:30 p.m. at the North Peace Arena.
