Flyers win 8-1 over the Hythe Mustangs

The Senior Flyers went to Hythe on Thursday night, looking to put a halt to a mini slump, but it was the Mustangs that would score the first goal of the game.  Mike Shipton was attempting to clear the puck, when it hit the referee and bounced right to Ryan Lizotte in the slot.  Lizotte fired it past Hunt, to put the Mustangs in front.  The Flyers were quick to retaliate, scoring two quick goals (45 secs apart – scored by Adam Loncan on a nice feed from Paul Wiens, and Paul Wiens on a shot from the point), and by the end of the 1st period the score was 2-1 Flyers.

In the second period the Flyers poured on the offence, with Ian Munro, Bryan Lewis, Todd Alexander, and Jeff Fast all beating Darren Walker, to put Fort St. John up 6-1.

In the final period the Flyers scored 2 more goals, courtesy of Paul Wiens and Jeff Fast (the second of the game for both), for an 8-1 win.

Troy Hunt had the win in goal, with Fort St. John going 2 for 2 on the powerplay.  In all, it was a faster and more physical game than some of their recent contests, leaving Coach Adam Brash a little more pleased with his team.
