Tough start to season

The Nakusp Pee Wee House Falcons played host to Grandforks 1 in their first league game of the season.

The Nakusp Pee Wee House Falcons played host to Grandforks 1 in their first league game of the season. Family and friends filled the stands and flocked to the concession for their first rink burger of the year.

The two small teams hit the ice at 5 p.m. and the first period saw both teams evenly matched.  Part way through the second period the visiting team took over and scored 7 unanswered goals.  Falcons tried to battle back in the third period, getting numerous shots on net only to have the posts being rung and the large goalie blocking shots. Highlight of the night was the large 50-50 ticket being claimed by a Falcons parent.

The Falcons travelled on Sunday back to Grandforks for a rematch.   The Falcons again were out played by the host team. Nakusp set up many nice plays and managed to get some shots on net, but could not find the back of the net. Final score was 11-0.

Falcons travel to Beaver Valley next weekend and have their next home game on Saturday, November 1 at 11:45 a.m. vs. Grandforks 2.
