The Ghostriders battle to keep the Chase Heat from scoring and tying the score in the last minutes of Friday night’s game.

Ghostriders go 1-1 in weekend’s games

The Ghostriders played two games over the weekend, going 1-1 to add two points to their score in the league.

The Ghostriders played two games over the weekend, going 1-1 to add two points to their score in the league.

They hosted the Chase Heat at the Fernie Memorial Arena on Friday night and both teams played well, resulting in a one-goal victory for the Ghostriders.

Head coach and general manager Craig Mohr was happy with how the team played, saying that both teams were playing hard that night.

“It was kind of a play off game-like. Both teams played real hard, really hard checks. There were a lot of ice bags floating around both teams. It was a good, hard nosed game,” he said.

While Mohr gave Justin Peers, Cole Keebler and Zach Beefus’s line credit for being aggressive on the ice, he said that the entire team played well, and he was please with the results.

“Our guys played well. We bent a little bit at the end but we didn’t break. Jeff [Orser] made some big saves at the end,” he said. “It was nice to see our power play get a couple again tonight. Our power play has been outstanding and the two goals they got, credit to them, just really good deflections. I like when we play good teams like that and we come out on top because I think the experience we get – the hard nosed rough kind of style of game, that’s a lot of what you see in January, February and March and well done by the lads. I thought they played really hard tonight.”

The team’s second game was on Sunday afternoon in Invermere, which Mohr was apprehensive about.

“We blew a lead last time we were there and lost so that is still very fresh in the coach’s memory. Since then we haven’t blown a lead so hopefully they learned their lesson. It’s another divisional game on Sunday, so we can’t look past that to the three-day weekend,” he said. “We need to keep pace with Creston and Kimberley and the only way you do that is by winning.”

The team didn’t get the win they were looking for, losing 6-4 against Columbia Valley.

The Ghostriders are on the road for their longest road trip of the season, playing three games over the weekend. They face off against Kamploops on Friday, play against the 100 Mile House Wranglers on Saturday and then battle the Chase Heat on Sunday. Their next home game is on Nov. 6 against their biggest rival, Kimberley Dynamiters. Game time is set for 7:30 p.m.
