The Fort St. John Flyers are in the midst of a tough first-round playoff series against the Grande Prairie Athletics, and are hoping to advance to the second round and have a long playoff run. So far, it hasn’t been easy. The Flyers are down 2-1 heading into tonight game, which starts at 8:30 p.m. tonight.
The Flyers play well at home, winning Game Two by a score of 6-3, but struggle on the road, especially when it comes to playing the Athletics. The Flyers have lost all five games they’ve played in Grande Prairie this season.
The next game in the series is Game Five in Grande Prairie on Thursday, Feb. 14. If the Flyers can get a win, they’ll host the Athletics for Game Six on Friday, Feb. 15.
Coy Cup Gala
The numbers are in from the Fort St. John Senior Flyers Coy Cup Gala on Feb. 2. The team raised $10,200 at the event to go toward the cost of hosting the 2019 Coy Cup and lodging and travel costs for the visiting teams.
“We turned to our community for support, and you delivered. We had a blast at the event and cannot thank you enough for your generous support,” said Flyers Manager of Media Relations, Brittany Doncaster.
The Coy Cup will run from Mach 26 to 30 at the North Peace Arena.
