Nakusp Peewees defeat Nelson Leafs

The battle was hard fought, but in the end, Nakusp prevailed.

The Nakusp Peewee Falcons took on the Nelson Leafs on Dec. 5. The Falcons hosted a stunning game

Nakusp Peewee Falcons proved, as the Queen song goes, that they were indeed the champions on Dec. 5, after their battle against the Nelson Leafs.

The first goal of the game took place less than two minutes into the first period. It was scored by Isaac Flamand of the Falcons, with no assist.

The Falcons have been working really well together over the last few games, a fact team members are attributing to their practises.

“We’ve been skating a lot in practises, and forward checking more, and playing our positions, and pucks to the net.” said Ewan Carter, the team’s captain.

As hard as the Falcons were playing, the Leafs were playing just as hard. The team was able to get to Nakusp’s side of ice several times, but for some reason, couldn’t seem to get the puck into the net.

The first period ended with a score of 3-0 for Nakusp.

Two minutes into the second period, the score was now 5-0 for Nakusp, with Isaac Flamand earning one of the team’s two hat tricks of the game. The team’s other hat trick was scored about two minutes later by Carter.

The Leafs were really giving their all, but it didn’t seem to be enough.

The final score of the game was 9-2 for Nakusp.

Part of the reason the Leafs were struggling this game was a lack of players.

“We’re missing three players, plus our goalie was hurt,” said Mark Durocher, head coach for the Leafs. “We took our defenseman and put him in net.”

Despite the smaller numbers, Durocher was proud of how his team played, particularly Matthew Lehr, the defenseman-turned-goalie.

“When you have a guy that doesn’t play goal, I thought he did good.”

He said he wouldn’t have done anything differently.

“They go have fun that’s what it’s about. They did good.”

Falcons were just as happy with their performance on the ice.

“We feel pretty proud, everybody’s singing, and it’s fun times.” said Carter.

The Falcons had a good time in their game against Castlegar on Dec. 6 as well. They won with a score of 7-4.
