The Fort St. John Senior Flyers welcomed the Manning Comets to the North Peace Arena last night. It was evident from the start that it would be a long night for the Comets as they Flyers dominated in all aspects and rolled to an 11-4 victory.
The Flyers led 3-1 after the first period and led 16-10 in the shots on goal.
Early in the second period the Flyers increased their lead to 5-1. By the time the second period came to an end Fort St. John had a commanding 8-3 lead.
With the game well in hand the Flyers added to their lead as they netted an additional three goals. Manning responded with a goal of their own to round out the scoring.
There wasn’t a whole lot to say after the game given what transpired on the ice as the Flyers took the game convincingly. Head coach Gerard Dicaire said the team used the game to sharpen up the X’s and O’s of what they do on the ice.
“There isn’t a whole pile to say about the game. It wasn’t so much about confidence but about not creating bad habits. Tonight I don’t know how many times we went over our set breakout. It’s good against a team like this to work on systems play. That’s what I use these games as.”
Scoring for the Flyers in the game were Rick Cleaver (3), Jeff Shipton (2), Joey Massingham (2), Robbie Sidhu (2), Cole Calliou, and Adam Horst.
Next for the Flyers is a game on at home on January 17 at 8:30 against Falher.
