The Pee Wee Falcons travelled to Beaver Valley on Saturday with the hopes of securing their first win of the season. With a small roster of nine skaters, the team was told to bring their “A” game to the ice and they did just that.

Falcons opened up the scoring just one minute into the first period when Devon Coates found the back of the net from great pass from his wingman Ewan Carter. That same line struck again at the nine minute mark when Bailey Wallace got rough in front of the net and smacked a rebound in with the assists going to Carter and Coates. Coates put one more in before the first period ended with the assist going to defenceman Aidan Hascarl. Trail managed to squeak one past goaltender Noah Fizzard leaving the Falcons up 3-1 at the end of the period.

The Falcons dominated the second period. Just 30 seconds in, Wallace got her second of the game with the assist going to Carter. Coates followed that up with his third of the game at the 16-minute mark with the assists going to Carter and Wallace. Goaltender Fizzard put up a wall in the second letting no shots in.

After a short break and ice clean, the Falcons started the third period with a 5-1 lead but Trail was determined to make a comeback. Trail put one in just three minutes into the third period and followed that up with one more. Coates got his fourth goal of the game to narrow the gap, assisted by Hunter Guidon. Trail managed to put one more in the net. With 16 seconds left in the third period and the faceoff deep in Trail’s zone, Coates pulled the puck back to defenceman Kimberly Roberts who fired it in the net.  Falcons secured the 7-4 win.
