Navs Split Games, Flyers Drop Two Over the Weekend

The North Peace Navigators had some mixed results over the weekend in the Northwest Junior Hockey League (NWJHL).

On Friday, the Navs bested the Sexsmith Vipers by a score of 7-5, with Mark Simpson scoring two goals and an assist during the game.

Theo Cunningham (Laderoute) scored the game winner in at about 18 minutes into the third period, with assits coming from Raine D’or and Dustin Calliou.

As well, goaltender Xavier Lavoie was able to stop 28 of 33 shots in net.

The next night, the Navs weren’t so lucky, as they fell 5-3 to the Dawson Creek Jr. Canucks. Levi Pichette, Calvin Sanders and Theo Cunningham (Laderoute) each scored for the Navs, with assists coming from Dustin Calliou, Chase Henrickson and Cole Diewert. Ryan Noble stopped 42 of 47 shots in the losing effort.

The Fairview Flyers, meanwhile, didn’t have much luck at all.

On Friday, the Flyers hosted Fort St. John at the Fairplex, where the Huskies prevailed 5-2. Alex Sawchuk was able to stop 29 of 34 shots in net for the Flyers. The only two goals were scored by Kyle Cairns and Baily Gagne.

The next day went no better, as the Flyers were on the road to face the County of Grande Prairie JDA Kings. And the Kings prevailed 2-1, with Zacheri Schlachter scoring the only goal for the Flyers at almost 18 minutes into the third period. Jonah Knudslien was able to stop 30 of 32 shots in net.

The Flyer look to redeem themselves on Wednesday, November 29, when the Flyers will host the County Kings at the Fairplex at 8 PM.
