The Fernie Ghostriders Junior Hockey Club finished their regular season and are advancing into the playoffs. The Riders finished in third place in the Eddie Mountain Division with 55 points and will play Kimberley Dynamiters in the first playoff round. Kimberley finished second with 67 points and is Fernie’s biggest rival in the league–the games will prove to be very exciting.

The rivalry is deep however we’ll only go back to last years playoffs.

In game one of last years playoffs the Riders were blasted 6-0 by the Dynamiters. After that game the coaches convinced the boys to play a lot more physical and from then on it was much closer, but they still lost in five. Perhaps believe the lesson was learned… we’ll find out in the next week.

Both teams won four games this year and one of them even featured a line brawl that resulted in a few suspensions. You can expect expect some fan friendly action coming up.

Kimberley had an easier time scoring this year and have a better GAA but it is a 50/50 series, the Riders could even win 4 straight, or the opposite… who want’s it more is the question… Kimberley is not as good as last season and Fernie is a little better equipped to win this season… but they sure could use a couple of defensive men back from the injury list.

Kimberley won the series in six games and is now playing Creston in round two.
