Huskies struggle in loss to Beaverlodge

Whatever residual effects lingered from a sloppy effort turned two points Friday, became glaring mistakes Saturday for the Fort St. John Huskies (3-3).

The pups handed the Beaverlodge Blades (1-5) their first win of the season in a back and forth 8-6 game on Oct. 15.

The difference, once again was the Huskies penalty kill, allowing five power play goals on six opportunities for the Blades, including four in the third period.

The Huskies also allowed Blades forward Evan Tordiff to score six goals in the loss.

Matt Fawcett allowed all eight goals on just 24 shots.

In the first period, after falling behind 1-0, Geoff Dick scored in his third straight game, Gary Loewen and Thomas Webster each added a goal of their own to make it 3-2 Huskies in the opening frame.

Tordiff’s second goal of the game tied it at three, before Webster and Kyle Crawford helped the Huskies take a two goal lead into the third.

Back-to-back power play goals tied the game for the Blades, until the Huskies’ Drew Fudger scored to earn the lead back briefly for Fort St. John.

Tordiff added three goals in the final seven minutes and 46 seconds for the Blades to close out the 8-6 win.

The Huskies will travel to take on the Fairview Flyers (2-4) Friday, Oct. 21 before hosting the Sexsmith Vipers (1-4) on Saturday, Oct. 22.
