Huskies drop game one to Fairview

first_imgTuesday’s game gets underway at 8 p.m. FAIRVIEW, A.B. – Game one of their semi final series with the Fairview Flyers may not have panned out the way the Fort St. John Huskies were hoping as they lost 4-2, but if one thing is clear it’s that they won’t be pushovers in the best of seven set. The Huskies led after one and were tied after two but were unable to get over the hump in the third in the series opening contest.Huskies GM Jeremy Clothier said aside from a lapse of a few minutes in the third period, the team played well but at the same time are aware a complete hockey game is what’s needed against the league’s elite teams.“It was a really good hockey game. Our guys came out hard and we worked hard the whole game. We took a couple of minutes off in the third period. It seems to be our mantra right now when we take a couple of minutes off we get sloppy and the other team carries the play. Going forward our guys know we need to work for 60 minutes,” he said.- Advertisement -The mood of the team is upbeat and they should benefit from having a full lineup at their disposal come game two at the North Peace Arena on Tuesday night.“Our guys are motivated. We played well and they felt they played well so a lot of good things happened. We got some secondary scoring so that’s good to see going forward. We’re healthy going into game two so we’re going to have a full bench. It’s not going to be an easy game for us or them. The whole series is going to be a grind,” Clothier said.Scoring for the Huskies were Kody Disher and Brandon Howard.Advertisementlast_img read more
