Midget Flyers among four Fort St. John teams to win league banners

Fort St. John minor hockey teams capped off a successful season by winning four league titles last weekend.

The Fort St. John Midget Tier 1 Flyers played two games against Grande Prairie to see who would win the title, with the series being decided by most goals. The Flyers dropped the first game 3-1 at home on Friday, March 8, but on March 9 in Grande Prairie, they scored two goals in regulation to even the series, and scored the title-clinching goal in overtime to win the All Peace League Midget Tier 1 title for the first time in 10 years.
