Huskies fall apart in Slave Lake

first_imgBy Jon Zacks After a strong performance on Friday against Peace River, the pups got off to an excellent start on Saturday, firing four goals past William Causey for a 4-0 lead after 20 minutes. The Huskies laid an egg on Saturday night, losing 6-4 in Slave Lake. “We came out flat, the reffing was … reffing in Slave Lake … and it just carried over to the third” said Huskies Assistant Coach Jeremy Clother of the collapse.   With the game tied 4-4 heading into the third, the Huskies were still in the game, but they were unable to regain momentum. With Payden Wongstedt in the stands (with a minor muscle injury) and Garrett Muir pulling himself after the fourth Wolves goal, the Huskies seemed unable to get back on their front feet, or regain the intensity they’d played with over the past few games. But, the wheels fell off in the second period, and the Wolves fought their way back in it. center_img Dylan Apsassin and Steven Fast both found the back of the net, while Cody Hildebrand scored twice. Nick Plourde beat Garrett Muir 8 minutes into the second, to get Slave Lake on the board. Kyle Pichette soon got in on the act, scoring twice, and assisting on a Dustin Ghostkeeper goal. Three minutes into the third, Justin Spees banged a rebound past Ty Gullickson, to give the Wolves the lead. Halfway through the third, Thomas Garon added an insurance marker, though it was insurance the Wolves wouldn’t need. “With our team, we should win” said Clothier. “We have the talent to do it, we have the goaltending to keep us in games … but tonight we just didn’t find ways to score in the third.” Fortunately for the Huskies, they don’t have long to stew on the loss. On Sunday afternoon, they get back on the ice at the Arctic Ice Centre, looking for some revenge on the Wolves. Catch Sunday’s game live on Moose FM, starting at 2 p.m.- Advertisement –last_img read more

Legacy of Terry Fox continues in Dawson Creek

first_imgA wet and cloudy morning didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of those participating in the Terry Fox Run – which began at 2 p.m. at the hall – and the clouds parted that afternoon to make for a fairly pleasant run. Despite the number of runners being down this year from last year, the event actually raised about $1,000 more than last year, for a total of $4,150, said Erin Oliver, a volunteer organizer of the run in Dawson Creek.“Everyone was great,” said Oliver. “They made a huge impact. When I called the numbers into the Terry Fox Foundation, they said the support up here is just amazing.”She added they had a few out-of-town participants who really made a difference, including one woman who raised over $1,000 in pledges for the run.- Advertisement -She said she is optimistic about next year’s run, but organizers are considering holding it earlier in the day and offering a pancake breakfast in an attempt to draw out more participants.last_img read more
