The Ghostriders took on the Glacier Nationals Saturday night at Fernie Memorial Arena.

The Ghostriders played their last exhibition game of the season Saturday night with another win against the Glacier Nationals. With a final score of 10-1, the Ghostriders are coming off their 2012/2013 exhibition schedule with five wins and a tie.

Saturday night’s game started off with a tribute to the anniversary of 9/11. The Ghostriders, along with Whitefish, Montana team the Glacier Nationals, lined up on the ice for both the American and Canadian National anthems. With RCMP and fire officials present, the entire arena paused for a moment of silence before the puck dropped.

The Ghostriders are now gearing up for their first regular game of the season. They’ll be heading to Princeton this Friday to take on the Posse. After a few games on the road, the boys will be back at Fernie Memorial Arena Saturday, September 22 for the season’s home opener against the Golden Rockets.
