Ghostriders Debut a Winner - The Free Press Turns 115 Years Old

September 15 1991

Free Press Files

The hockey was chippy and tough but Fernie’s newest Junior A team ended up tromping their opponents in its first game ever.

Playing for permanent positions on the team Ghostrider players were tough and aggressive on the boards Wednesday night beating the Kimberley Jr. Dynamiters 6-2.

The first series of exhibition games, leading up to the regular season start Sept 20, was close for the first two periods, then the Ghostriders took command of the ice.

Coach Scott Farrell said he was impressed with all the players who dressed for the game and believes he’ll have a tough time making final cuts before next weeks regular season opener.
