SCOREBOARD: Fort St. John Huskies 5, Fairview Flyers 2

Clinching first place on Wednesday didn't keep the Huskies from playing as if they hadn't clinched first place in last night's 5-2 win in Fairview. The Huskies have played mostly tight, one-goal games in Fairview this season, but last night they took an early 3-0 lead and held on for the win, their 12th in a row. 

Braedyn Funke was solid in net, getting his second win since returning from injury. The team spread the scoring around, as Jared Winkel, Dean Whitcomb, Jeridyn Loewen and Jared Loewen all tied for the team-lead with two points each.

The Huskies will be back at it tomorrow in Dawson Creek at 3 p.m. to take on the Canucks.
