The High Prairie Regals have finally done it.
After seven years, they’ve broken the curse and have won a head to head matchup against the Falher Pirates. The last time the Regals won against this team was back in December of 2010.
On Thursday, December 7, 2017, High Prairie more than doubled the Pirates by a score of 13-6 at the Sports Palace. This game also marks the end of a four-game losing skid for the Regals.
The heroes of the night for the Regals were Lloyd AhKimNachie, who scored four goals for the team, and Hector Lamouche Jr., who registered three goals (including the game winner) and three assists.
As well, Gordy Laderoute and Luc L’Hirondelle each scored two goals, while Jacob Anderson and Dakota Conroy each registered a goal and an assist. Matt MacMinn was also able to stop 30 of 36 shots in goal.
Despite their loss, the Pirates continue to play impressively, as they still lead the North Peace Hockey League’s (NPHL) East Division Standings.
Last night, Talon Walton stopped 31 of 44 shots in net, with Nathan Smith and Jeff Chalifoux each netting two goals in net, while Dakota Mason and Koltin Caron each registering one.
The only other game last night in the NPHL had the Dawson Creek Sr. Canucks blank the Fort St. John Flyers 6-nothing, the first time in history that Dawson Creek was able to do that to the Flyers.
Back to the Regals, they don’t get much time to rest. They try to keep their momentum going on Friday, when they head to Grande Prairie to take on the Athletics.
That same night, the Grimshaw Huskies look for just their second win all season, when they head up to Manning to take on the Comets.
On Saturday, the Huskies are in Falher, while the Comets cross the British Columbia border to take on Fort St. John.
