Riders- Nitehawks

The Ghostriders lost the first two games in this series on the road in Beaver Valley by scores of 4-1 and 4-2. The shots were almost even in both of the games and the score was close until late in the games. Back home in the Fernie Memorial in game three the Ghostriders exploded for a 9-1 win. That game was a team effort with everyone hitting and everyone scoring. Of the 9 goals only Eil King had more than one and all the lines contributed. In game four the Ghostriders were once again the better team and had almost all the good scoring chances, had a huge territorial advantage and took advantage of the Hawk mistakes as they made them.

Odds and Ends

The shots were almost even in the first two games but in the games three and four they were almost 2-1 for the Ghostriders…. Jason Greenwell got both the wins in net and was great when he had to be but the Hawks didn’t get enough good shots for Greenwell to get named as a game star…..Even in the 3-2 OT game…..The average attendance was over a thousand in Fernie….Brett Lyon’s second goal of the game made him the overtime hero in game four, Lyon is from Grand Forks and just turned 17 in January…. Faceoff magician Ray Pressacco, who does lots of little things you don’t always notice scored his first goal in this series when he intercepted a pass through the middle in the Hawk end in game four….Robbie Shaw had 2 assists in the 3-2 OT win…. Hawk forward James Neitsch who was BV’s top scorer this year has 3 goals so far….Rider rookie defenseman Jeff Zmurchyk has been a game star in two games …. Scott Cisco is getting a point a game…..Joe DeLuca joined the sick list in game four after playing a gritty game and getting 2 assists as a forward in game three…..BV wouldn’t start game four until one of the signs the fans had put up was taken down….No one can take a joke anymore.
