Weekend sweep for Peguis Juniors

Three-time defending league champion Peguis Juniors waited quite some time for their home opener starting their season with a seven-game road trip. Last weekend the team and their fans got a look at the past with a pregame ceremony honoring the league championship. The current edition then went on to sweep a pair from the visiting Norway House North Stars.

Despite playing with a short bench Peguis had the 500+ home crowd rocking early when Quinton Flett scored just :08 after the opening faceoff. His linemates – Ethan Daniels and Tyrome Spence-Bair – assisted on the goal in the first of a huge offensive weekend for all three players. Daniels and Spence-Bair would each score a pair while adding four assists in the game with saw the Juniors win 7-1. Quinton Flett finished with a hat trick and three helpers. Dray Flett stopped 29 of 30 shots to earn the victory in net for the Juniors.

The weekend finale was a different type of game with the North Stars fighting for their first win of the young season. Peguis would again score first on a powerplay goal from Evan Thickfoot. Daniels and Sundance Paul also found the back of the net in the opening frame which ended at 3-1.

Norway House would reverse that result in the second period scoring three goals, two by Tanner Poker, to see the game tied 4-4 at second intermission.

Poker finished his hat trick midway through the third, but the Daniels, Flett, Spence-Bair trio took over combining for 10 points. Peguis would score five times to win 9-5.
