Flyers sweep weekend

The Flyers realed off a pair of wins this weekend. First they beat Spirit River on Thrusday night in a game that was close all the way through. The Flyers don't play many tight games so it was good to see the lads have to fight to pick up the victory. Spirit River was lead by a strong performance from Wallman who chipped in with a couple of goals in the second and the Flyers actually trailed going into the third period. Adam Loncan had two goals in the game the second of which tied the game up and actually broke the puck as he wired it up off the underside of the bar and in. Luke Middleton, playing as a forward, teamed up with Ian Munro on a 2 on 1 and managed to squeak his shot through Yesminski to give the Flyers the lead back. The play was all set up though by a nice little saucer pass from Munro that took the defender out of the play and allowed Middleton to skate onto the puck and in on what was almost a breakaway.

Last night the Flyers took on Fairview who could only muster 10 skaters. The Flyers, who were unhappy with their performance the night before, took a while to get going but with Fairview being so short benched the Flyers were able to eventually turn on the jets and skate away with a fairly lopsided victory. Todd Alexander has been on fire lately and score another against Fairview as did Kersey, Hocking, Noble and Fast. Brett Loney also found the back of the net to make the final 7 to 2. The Flyers are back in action on Thursday in Grand Prairie. Jon and I will have the call starting at 8:15 with the pregame show.

Off the to NPA to check out the Huskies as they take on the Peace River Navigators.
