The Fort St. John Huskies extended their unbeaten streak to 13 games Sunday afternoon with a 5-1 win over the North Peace Navigators.
Five different scorers added to the goal total: Ashton Underhill, Colby Busche, Oscar Burgess, Justin Brownlee, and Raymond Dick in a game where the Huskies were up 3-0 on their first four shots of the game.
“It was a good weekend. The boys played well,” said team captain Cayden Frenette who celebrated his 100th game with the club Saturday.
“You do the simple things... the game is going to go your way.”
Frenette earned five points in the back-to-back games with Peace River on the weekend, which included a 5-3 win by the Huskies Saturday night.
“I thought our start was really good. Parts of it were decent in the second and kind of pulled off the gas pedal in the third,” said head coach Todd Alexander after Sunday afternoon’s contest.
“Positionally, we were still okay. We were above the puck. Our energy level kind of dropped as the game went along but we, obviously, did enough in the first 20 minutes to get ‘er done.”
The Huskies remain in third in the Northwest Junior Hockey League standings, three points back of Grande Prairie and five away from league-leading Sexsmith – the same gap they had after play Nov. 26 and 27, with both the Wheat Kings and Vipers continuing to win their games as well.
The Huskies are home to Grande Prairie Friday (8 p.m., North Peace Arena) before a quick one-game road trip to Fairview to take on the Flyers Saturday night.
