SCOREBOARD: Fort St. John Huskies 4, Fairview Flyers 3 (SO)

It was anything but easy, but the Fort St. John Huskies finally have a win under their belt in the 2018-19 NWJHL regular season. The Huskies beat the Fairview Flyers 4-3 in a shootout to improve their record to 1-2.

The Huskies were down 2-0 early, but outhsot the Fairview Flyers heavily throughout the game. The Huskies were down 3-2 for the whole third period, until Jared Loewen, with 55 seconds left in the game, scored off a set play from the faceoff to tie the game at 3.

"Lots of traffic, I just saw a little hole and the puck found the back of the net. It was a big relief and it was nice to help the team a little bit," Loewen said. 

Neither team scored in overtime, so it went to a shootout, where Gary Loewen and Nolan Legace scored for the Huskies. Fairview only scored once in the shootout. 

The Huskies are back at home tomorrow night, and will play the Sexsmith Vipers, who beat the Huskies 6-0 last week. 

"It was a big disappointment last time. I think with the first win off our backs, everyone will come out flying tomorrow," Loewen said.
