The Flyers came out strong in the first period, scoring three goals off the sticks of Jeff Fast, Jeff Shipton and Brian Lewis on the power play. There was a lot of back and forth action in the second, as the Canucks outscored the Flyers 4-3 to end the middle frame 6-4 for Fort St. John. The Dawson Creek charge was led by Jason Higson, who ended the game with four goals.
The Flyers scored twice in the third to go up by four points, but a late goal by Higson made things interesting. Fort St. John held the opposition off for the final two minutes, despite giving up a late power play, and left the ice with the win.
Goaltender Troy Hunt got the win in net for the Flyers, while Luke Middleton and Jeff Shipton each had two goal games. The team has now passed the Hythe Mustangs in the standings, and sit in fourth place in the NPHL West Division.
