Northern Strikers are 3 for 3!!!! We have sent 3 Northern Strikers teams to their own individual ASA provincials and all have come back with GOLD!!!!

This is an amazing accomplishment when we are usually the team that has travelled the farthest and are underestimated as “just being from Fort St John”. Well, this season the Northern Strikers have come out in force and have shown that we play with determination, skill, energy and sportsmanship!

Our U14 Girls travelled to Edson a couple of weeks ago and had a fantastic showing and came home with GOLD for the U14 Girls Tier 4 ASA provincials!

Game 1: FSJ vs Sherwood Park, 2-0.  Man of the Match: Jamie Lee
Game 2: FSJ vs Edson, 2-1. Man of the Match: Miranda Cowger
Semi-final: FSJ vs St Paul, 3-1. Man of the Match: Cailyn Boyd
Final: FSJ vs Ponoka, 4-1. Man of the Match: Jade Mah
Named to All-Star Team:  Kiana Cowger, Jamie Lee

Goal Scorers: Kiana Cowger (4), Jamie Lee (3), Cassandra Marquardt (3), Karissa McNutt (1)

The same weekend our U16s travelled to Three Hills where they competed in their U16 Tier 4 ASA Provincials and brought home GOLD as well!

On July 15th our U12 Boys Northern Strikers left FSJ and headed to Stettler AB for their U12 Tier 4 Boys ASA Provincials. A long travel and some weather issues these boys again played fantastically and took home GOLD as well making the Northern Strikers 3 for 3! Results:
U12Boys Northern Strikers Outdoor Provincials- Stettler, Alberta Gold Medal winners

Game 4             FSJ vs Stettler                          3-1        Man of the game Jonathon Gullason
Final gold Medal game FSJ vs Wetaskiwin        3-0
Goal Scorers: Mitchell Linley (6), Cameron Close (3),Nate Dawkin (1), Jonathon Gullason (1), Ty Hollingshead (3), Alex Adkins (2)

All the boys played extremely hard and especially our goalies: Sam Barrette and Gage Adkins for their hard work in the tournament.
The U12 boys had a great outdoor season.  The walked away with gold from every tournament they attended

So, most of our Strikers teams now end their season except for our U18s who now have the challenge of making this a 4 for 4 season for the FSJ Northern Strikers when they attend their provincials in early August! Good luck!!!!
