Flyers beat Hythe look to Spirit River
The Flyers rolled into Hythe last night looking to extend their one game winning streak. The Flyers bounced back after a loss in Grand Prairie last weekend to beat High Prairie 14 buzz last Saturday. Well last night in was the Mustangs on the card and maybe the perfect opposition for the Flyers, a team that competes hard every night but that isn't good enough to play with the Flyers. That allowed the Flyers to play a good period, period and a half of competitive hockey against Hythe before they pulled away. Paul Wiens scored one and set up another in the first after the Stangs had taken the lead to make the score 2 to 1 after the first. The second period has been the Flyers period all season and so it continued. They scored four times with Todd Alexander scoring the pick of the bunch with a snipe job. The third was all Flyers again and they made the final score 8 to 1. Shuya, Fast and Wiens would probably have been the three stars in the game if we had a three stars award, but not in that order. Good to see Shuya getting back to where he was before he went Grizwald for a couple months. The bus got stuck before the game in the Hythe & District memorial arena parking lot. The ice in that parking lot may have been better than the ice inside the rink. Next up for the Flyers will be Spirit River who are a potential second round playoff matchup for the Flyers. The game may have some playoff implications or it may not depending on what GP does in it's next game but both teams will be gearing up for playoffs so it should be a good matchup.
