The community of Fernie has a history of supporting the Fernie Ghostriders, it’s Junior B hockey team. The passionate following has a great history as the Riders consistently win a good share of their games. If your visiting Fernie be sure to take in the popular Rider games.

Ghostriders

The Spokane Braves are in Fernie Friday night and they will be hungry for a win after losing 7-2 to Kimberley and 4-1 in Nelson last weekend. The Braves are only 4-10 but they have some firepower, their top two scorers are two Spokane locals, Paxton Malone and Mason Jones, and they lead all KIJHL scorers with 23 points each. The Riders played in Spokane on October 7th and the Braves defeated the Ghostriders by a 5-4 score despite being out-shot 53-30.

Here is the current league standings:Fernie Ghostrider standings

Ghostrider Action
Kevin Pierce and Evan Traverse will finish their suspensions from the Golden game Friday night and will be able to play on Saturday in Elkford. They were suspended 2 games each along with 2 Rockets and both coaches (1game each) because of multiple fights at the same stoppage of play. The league doesn’t like two or more fights at the same time… cause the fans don’t know which one to watch ? The fights started after Pierce was hit from behind by the frustrated Rockets who were getting schooled in every part of the game. The referee called 3 fights and Trevor Broad was the first fight so he wasn’t suspended… another ref may have just given ruffing or chocolates to the other participants and no suspensions, but that’s the way it goes.

The Rider game wasn’t the only penalty filled game, Summerland and Revelstoke also duked it out (check out the 2nd period here) and a few other teams also had their share of PIM’s as well, all in all 16 suspensions were issued after last weekend’s games… you couldn’t tell here in Fernie with all the rain, but it was a full moon, at least according to the bloodstains, I mean calendar.

We hope to see you at a Rider game!
