The Fernie Ghostriders earned their 17th win of the year with a 4-2 win against the 100 Mile House Wranglers. The Riders held a 2-0 lead after the first and a 3-1 lead after two before Matt MacDonald from Ben Primeau and Kurtis Bond scored the 4th goal for the home team with 4:19 left in the game.

The Riders were without defence -Josh Odelein and Blake Arcuri and forwards Cole Keebler and Colby Burns. Meanwhile Cole Weber played but we could see that he is still hurting, he is a warrior. Jon Thompson and Josh Teves were for my money the Riders best defensive men in that game, they looked like Jr “A” boys.

A few notes:
Phoenix Logan Hill was sharp in the Rider net, the Wranglers have a pretty good team with a good blend of skill size and speed and generated 38 shots.

Ben Primeau from Joel Burgess scored what would turn out to be the game winner in the second. It was a nice goal set up by a great feed from Burgess…and it was short handed, Primeau’s 2nd SH goal this season and the Ghostriders 11th SH goal. Burgess has 3 SH goals and has had assists on a few others.

There were 4 too many men calls, 2 for each team, the refs were way to strict, a couple of times the player was jumping into the bench and was not playing the puck.

The other Rider Goals… Kale Johnston (14th) from Ben Primeau and Matt MacDonald PP (nice backhand top shelf)
Aaron Neufeld from Kurtis Bond (another perfect shot T/C)
Matt MacDonald from Ben Primeau and Kurtis Bond PP

100 Mile Goals Luke Santerno from Lane van de Wetering and Connor Sloan Made it 3-1
Lane van de Wetering from Connor Sloan and Kenny Nordstrom made it 3-2 with 16 minutes left in the third giving 100 a legitimate chance to win.

Shots:
Kristian Stead stopped 26 of 30 for 100 and Phoenix Logan Hill stopped 36 of 38

Time game was over a 9:35, earliest game I can remember in a long time… bet we won’t be out at 9:30 tonight with Kimberley in town.

With the win and Kimberley’s 3-1 loss to Nelson the Riders get a piece of second place. In this final stretch to the playoffs get out and support the Fernie Ghostriders.
