Winless weekend for Senior Flyers

Chance to rebound with back-to-back games this coming weekend
The Fort St. John Senior Flyers battled hard but fell 7-4 to the Grande Prairie Athletics Saturday night to fall to 1-and-5 on the season.

It was a tough weekend for the Fort St. John Senior Flyers.

Jeff Shipton, Nolan Lagace, and Dawson Phillips scored Friday night in a 6-3 road loss to the Falher Pirates – the Flyers out shot 36-30 in the contest.

Like Friday, Saturday’s game didn’t see the Flyers get themselves onto the score sheet until the second period.

Cayle Bell tallied, his first of two, while Robbie Sidhu added a single to pull Fort St. John to within reach.

Bell and Jared Loewen would add one each in the third, but the Grande Prairie Athletics would score twice into the empty net enroute to a 7-4 result.

The Flyers, who haven't won since their season-opening victory over Spirit River, are now 1-5-0-0 (wins, losses, overtime losses, shootout losses) through their first six games.

They take on the Grimshaw Huskies (3-4-0-0) at home Friday night (8:30 p.m., North Peace Arena) before hitting the road for a Saturday night contest in Valleyview against the (1-5-0-0) Jets.
