Head Coach Gary Alexander says that when you have games where the outcome is never in doubt, they provide a good opportunity to brush up on systems but it is hard to play like that throughout the entire contest.
“It progressively gets to be more of a one man show out there as it goes along because everyone wants to get in on all of the points,” he explains. “They have a tendency to forget the fact that they got the points started by being a team. It’s not fun playing these games because a lot of concentration is lost as the game goes on.”
Alexander says the team has been playing well lately but is well aware that stumbles will happen as the season progresses.
“We’re gaining every day I think. We’re bound to have a relapse sooner or later but you have to have a high and a low and we are hoping to ride a high through Peace River tomorrow,” he says. “If everybody sticks to what we’ve been doing in the last month we have a pretty good chance at going into Peace River and coming out with a win.”
Scoring goals in order for the Huskies tonight were Cayle Bell, Dylan Houle, Jordan Gies, Cayle Bell, Pierce Layne, Brighton Campbell, Owen Barker, Owen Barker, Brighton Campbell, Cayle Bell, Dylan Houle, and Pierce Layne.
Shots on the night were well in favour of Fort St. John 45-27. Getting the win in goal was Daimon Derouin.
Up next for the Huskies is a road tilt against the North Peace Navigators. A win by the Huskies would give them a three point cushion on the Navs while keeping the pressure on the Grande Prairie JDA Kings.
