first_imgScoring for the Huskies were Cayle Bell (2), Anthony Ruggiero, and Shawn Wilson.The next game for Fort St. John comes on Tuesday night when they’ll host the Dawson Creek Junior Canucks. It was an ugly start for the Fort St. John Huskies in their game on Saturday night against the Fairview Flyers but to their credit they did what they could trying to battle back. After falling behind 4-0 in the first the Huskies steadily clawed back into the game at 4-3, but it wasn’t enough as they eventually lost 6-4.Despite falling short it was a good effort for the Huskies who didn’t look out of place in the game, and took a good step forward in trying to be a more physical hockey club.Assistant coach Todd Alexander said despite the early hiccups he was proud of the work put in by his team.- Advertisement -“They’re [Fairview] a hell of a hockey team and they capitalized on the opportunities we gave them in the first period but aside from that I thought our guys played really hard. There’s no moral victories in losing a hockey game by any means but we really don’t have anything to hang our heads about,” he said.Along with the physical aspects the Huskies also played a strong offensive game and had a number of chances to make the game closer than it was.“I think we had a lot more puck possession and zone time than they did. They had some possessions where the hemmed us in a little bit but overall we carried the majority of play. It was just one of those games where I thought that we deserved better but we came out on the losing end,”Advertisementlast_img read more
