Next, the Falcons are off to Penticton to participate in the Tier 3 tournament.

The Nakusp Falcons tallied two more league points on the weekend. The team travelled to Kaslo to play the Tier Three Nelson/Kaslo combined team. Kellan Nishida opened the scoring early in the first period with the assist going to Dylan Hascarl. Less than a minute later, Nathyn McInnes scored with the assists going to Connor Reimer and Zac Friedenberger and Friedenberger made the game 3-1 when he scored on a pass from McInnes.  Nelson/Kaslo managed to put one in the net near the end of the first period. In the second period goals were scored by Max McCoy (Jade Streliev), Jacob Balske (McCoy & Mitchel Hascarl), Ryan Bateman (Dylan Hascarl). Nelson/Kaslo tried to narrow the gap by scoring two in the second period as well. The third period saw two more unanswered goals by the Falcons, Mitchel Zorn (McInnes and Friedenberger) and Mitchel Hascarl (Kylie Carson).  The Falcons won the game 8-3 with Cam MacPherson being the net minder.

Falcons second in Kelowna Tier 3 tournament

When the Nakusp Falcons travelled to Kelowna on November 25 to 27,   Nakusp lost their first game of the weekend to the home team, 5-3. Fortunately they re-grouped in the next game and were victorious 4-0 over Surrey. Goals were scored by Balske (McCoy, Mitchel Hascarl), Levi Cordingley, who got two in the game (Zorn, Mitchel Hascarl), and Connor Reimer who was awarded one, unassisted. Cam MacPherson got the shut-out.   The Falcons won the next game as well, with a hefty score of 7-3.  Dylan Hascarl proved to be a mighty force with five goals (Nishida, three assists going to Devlin and two unassisted). Nishida also got a goal (unassisted) and Zac Friedenberger put the seventh in (Reimer). This win would earn them enough points to advance straight to the final game vs. Kelowna’s Tier Three team. Nakusp lost the final game, 6-1. The lone goal was scored by AJ Hughes on a break away pass from McInnes.

Next, the Falcons are off to Penticton to participate in the Tier 3 tournament.
