The Fort St. John Huskies played an all-around great game last night against Fairview. In front of a large crowd, the Huskies dominated all facets of the game, chasing the Fairview starter early, and going three for four on the powerplay, to win easily, 7-2.
Brady Marzocco was huge in the win, as he had two goals and three assists.
With the win, and a Dawson Creek loss last night, the Huskies need just two points in their final three games, or a Dawson Creek loss, to clinch first place and a bye in the first round of the playoffs.
