Huskies beat Vipers 4-2 in home opener

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – It wasn’t the prettiest-ever start to a game, but the Fort St. John Huskies got ‘er done on Saturday night, winning their home opener against the Sexsmith Vipers.The Huskies continued their theme of peppering the opposing goalie with shots by outshooting the Vipers 43-31, with 23 shots in the first period alone. Nervousness about playing in front of the over 500-strong crowd got to the Huskies early, as the Vipers capitalized on an early powerplay to go up 1-0 1:40 into the first frame. After the Vipers took a few of their own penalties of their own, the Huskies finally got on the board courtesy of a Drew Fudger powerplay goal with 2:30 remaining in the first assisted by Jacob Lang and Jared Lowen.Going into the second, the Pups seemed to settle down a bit, continuing their offence with another 11 shots on net. Geoff Dick and Kyle Crawford both found the back of the net less than a minute apart, with Lowen assisting on both goals. Adam Bowie and Elias Thompson also helped on the goals. While the Vipers managed to come back to within one goal late in the second, the Huskies sealed the deal when Jarod and Jacob Lang teamed up to put one into the back of the empty Sexsmith net with just over one minute left in the third.- Advertisement -The Huskies are back on home ice on Friday night when they host the Grande Prairie County JDA Kings, before heading to Beaverlodge on Saturday night to take on the Blades.last_img read more
