Pee Wee Falcons 3-game update

The Nakusp Pee Wee Falcons played host to Castlegar on November 8

The Nakusp Pee Wee Falcons played host to Castlegar on November 8. Both teams were evenly matched and battled back and forth but Castlegar put the first goal on the board halfway through the first period. Devon Coates tied it up just seconds into the second period with the assists going to Kimberly Roberts and Noah Fizzard. Nakusp ran out of steam in the third period allowing Castlegar two unanswered goals and the 3-1 wins. On Sunday, November 9 the team travelled to Nelson. Nelson got two quick goals in the first period but Nakusp battled back when Coates got an unassisted goal to narrow the gap. Nelson made it 3-1 and Isaac Flamand battled in front of the net with just 23 seconds left in the first period to make it 3-2 with the assist going to Roberts. Nelson got one more in the second and Flamand followed that up with his second of the game late in the third period with the assist going to Aidan Hascarl. Nelson held on to the 4-3 lead.

Last weekend, Grand Forks travelled back to Nakusp for a rematch. Grand Forks scored single goals in the first and second periods but Nakusp would not give up. Late in the third period, Ewan Carter got his first goal of the season with the assist going to Darian Smith and Coates. Twenty  seconds later Isaac Flamand tied the game with a long shot from the blue line that the Grandforks could not handle. Trinity Didier and Hascarl got the assists on the Flamand goal. Falcons were determined to get the game winner late in the third as they peppered the goalie with shots. The buzzer went and the game remained a 2-2 tie.
