“Our compete level was a thousand times better than what it was Thursday night. It’s a different team than who we played Thursday, but we did a lot of good things, I was happy with what happened and the guys looked a lot better,” said Flyers head coach Andrew Leriger.
The win puts the Flyers one point behind the Sr. Canucks for first place in the West Division of the North Peace Hockey League. The Flyers held their annual teddy bear toss at the game, and fans littered the ice with stuffed animals after Jeff Fast scored five minutes in.
Jordan Harder scored two more goals in the first to make it 3-0.
Robbie Sidhu scored in the third period off a nice give-and-go play from Lien Miller-Jeannotte and Rylan Sideroff to put the Flyers up 7-0. The Comets scored with six minutes left, breaking Travis McLean’s shutout, but that was all Manning would muster.
McLean was great, although he didn’t have a busy night as the Comets were outshot 51-17.
The Flyers head to Manning Dec. 15 for a rematch against the Comets.
