The Fernie Ghostriders are ready for the regular season to start after last week’s exhibition games.
The team played four games last week with mixed results, including two losses, a tie and a definitive win. Overall, head coach Craig Mohr is happy with the result, as it gave the younger players a chance to stretch their legs.
“I thought they played hard and I thought they played well. We tied 2-2 against Creston and we beat Columbia Valley at home six to nothing,” said Mohr.
The Ghostriders regular season starts Sept. 11, with away games against the Castlegar Rebels and the Nelson Leafs the following day.
Mohr says he is just as excited to start practicing with the team as he is to start the season.
“The regular season is upon us and I am absolutely excited. I think I’m almost more excited about being on the practice ice this week. We really haven’t had a practice as a team this year so I think these three days are going to be very pivotal to how we start the year,” said Mohr.
The Ghostriders first home game is Sept. 26 against the 100 Mile House Wranglers at the Fernie Memorial Arena, with the puck dropping at 7:30 p.m.
