It was a light schedule to kick off the New Year, with last Thursday’s game the first matchup since December 19, and the only one on the weekend.
In it, the Dawson Creek Junior Canucks found themselves down early — 3-0 after the first — to the County of Grande Prairie JDA Kings, and were never able to get back into the game, falling 7-3.
Brandon Rowley, Liam Craig, and Dustin Bahm each put up goals for the Canucks, while Rowley, Dylan McCuaig, and Mason Ducharme put up two points each. Andrew Davidse also notched a point.
Goaltender Conor Webb was under fire all night, as the Junior C’s were outshot 52-27.
It was a penalty filled game, as between the two teams 98 penalty minutes were doled out, with 70 going against the C’s.
The loss snapped a three game win streak for the Canucks.
They will look to get back in the W column this weekend, with two road games. The first goes tonight against Sexsmith and the second the next night against Fairview. The Vipers and the Flyers sit at the bottom of the standings, recently passed the Kings, while the Canucks sit in second just one point behind Fort St. John, albeit with two more games played. Both games start 8 pm.
