One sided affair opens Savage Cup

The Fort St. John Senior Men's Flyers could not have pictured a better start to this year's Savage Cup.
In Tuesday's tournament opening game, the Flyers beat the Prince George Mohawks 10-2, outshooting the Mohawks 61-12.
Even before the opening face off, the Flyers had a significant advantage, as the Mohawks were missing multiple players off their roster. The Flyers took advantage of the limited number of bodies on their opponents bench and came out strong, making sure to set the pace early in the game.
Fort St. John struck first 2:43 seconds into the opening frame, thanks to Donny Lloyd, who snapped one high glove off a nice pass from Chris Stevens. After the opening goal, the game belonged to the Flyers.
The Flyers scored nine more goals in the first two periods and dominated the one sided affair.
Both Donny Lloyd and Jeff Fast finished the game with 4 point nights, with a number other Flyer players recording multi-point games.
After the game, Flyers forward Jeff Shipton talked about how even though the game was one sided, the Flyers used it to work on important aspects of their game, such as their power play and break outs. All of which are crucial for success in these types of tournaments.
Mohawks Coach Grant Williams also spoke about the game, addressing his short bench and how more players are expected to join the roster tomorrow.
The Prince George Mohawks will play the Penticton Vees tomorrow at 8 p.m. at the North Peace Arena, for game two of the Savage Cup.
