The N.E. B.C. and Yukon Trackers took on the Grande Prairie Storm, and Whitecourt Wolverines over the weekend. It was a productive two games for the team on the ice and in the standings as they came away with wins by scores of 5-2, and 6-2.

In their game against Grande Prairie there was no scoring in the first period, but the Storm opened the scoring early in the second period.

The 1-1 score held going into the third period, and before the frame was five minutes old the Trackers took their first lead of the game. They built on that advantage with goals at the 10:24, and 5:06 marks to hold a 4-1 lead. Grande Prairie closed the gap to two with 2:29 remaining, but that’s as close as they would get as the Trackers added an empty net goal in the final minute of the game.

Scoring in the game for the Trackers were Matthew Apsassin, Elias Thompson, Clayton Lepine, Kohlman Brinsky, and Jacob Lang.

In Saturday’s game against the Wolverines the Trackers opened the scoring but were tied at two with Whitecourt after the opening 20 minutes. The Trackers pulled away down the stretch however as they scored twice in the second period and added another two in the third for the 6-2 win.

Next up for the team is a busy weekend on the road as they’ll be on the ice for three games against Vegreville, Fort Saskatchewan, and Camrose.
