SCOREBOARD: Falher Pirates 5, Fort St. John Senior Flyers 4

After beating the Grande Prairie Athletics at home on Friday night, the Fort St. John Flyers were unable to make it two in a row on Saturday, losing to the Falher Pirates 5-4. The Flyers outshot the Pirates 57-34, but were unable to score enough goals in the third, failed to capitalize on their five powerplay chances, and gave up two powerplay goals to Falher. 

"It’s conditioning. Guys aren’t showing up for practice, I can’t do anything out there and it's noticeable. It’s the little things. We were the better team, but they wanted it more than us by the looks of it," said Head Coach Andrew Leriger after the game.

The Flyers move to 4-3 on the season, and remain two points behind Grande Prairie for second in the division.
