Countdown to HOME OPENER vs St. Malo Warriors
(Oct 19/14)
Posted Jan 24/15 - Falcons Weather the Storm

Saturday night hockey in Lundar featured the home town Lundar Falcons hosting

the OCN Storm from The Pas. OCN has been battling for playoff positioning in

order to be the host in the first round of the playoffs, while the Falcons have been

steadily accumulating points in the standings. The first period featured two fast

puck moving teams each battling to gain the opposition’s zone. It was the Storm

who opened the scoring with just over 4 minutes to go in the first period. A

determined Falcon hockey club was not to be outdone in the first period of play.

On the power play with 1:39 to go in the first period, Tavish Quinn and Myles

Bennett set up their assistant captain Michael Shannon for the tying goal. The

teams remained at 1 throughout the second period. As they battled for position

and control of the puck the game’s speed was highlighted with many hard hits

delivered by each team. This lead to many penalties issued to both teams. The

Storm had 12 minors, 2 majors, 1 ten minute misconduct and 2 game

misconducts. The Falcons had 10 minors, 1 major, 2 ten minute misconducts and

a game misconduct. Unfortunately the Falcons found themselves on a four

minute 5 on 3 disadvantage. Being scored on at this point of the game would

definitely be devastating to the Falcons. Tremendous penalty killing weathered

the Storm’s power play attack. The Falcons successfully killed off this

disadvantage and gained a lot of confidence and momentum. Lundar Chicken

Chef Player of the Game Trent Laycock was one of many Falcon penalty killers

who contributed to numerous short-handed situations. The teams entered the

third at a stalemate. The score sheet at the end of the game would display shots

on goal as OCN 40 and Lundar 39, but what would the final score be? The Falcons

came out flying in the opening moments of the third. Aldyn Gray put the Falcons

ahead after being set up by Craig Caine and Thomas Le Strat. Twenty-six seconds

later, to the delight of the Lundar crowd Storm Swan scored off a scramble in

front of the OCN net to make the score 3 – 1.  The next goal would be important

to the team who could score it. The Storm could be one shot away from tying the

Falcons if they were to score. It was the Falcons who scored the next goal to

diffuse any comeback that the OCN Storm may have had. Aldyn Gray and Lundar

Falcon captain Troy Kaartinen set up Landen Gray who scored to make it 4 – 1

Lundar. Defensively the Falcons and their goaltender Randy Quick were able to

keep the Storm off the scoreboard for the rest of the game.  The Falcons won the

game 4 – 1 and are currently on a three game winning streak. The Falcons will

practice in the upcoming week and then host the Selkirk Fishermen on Friday

January 30th at 8 pm in Lundar.

Posted Jan 23/15 - Falcons Victorious On The Road

Fresh off their fourth victory of the season the Falcons visited Fisher River for a mid-week clash with the Hawks. Falcons opened the scoring early in the first period on a goal by Landen Gray after he was set up by Storm Swan. The Falcons extended their lead to 2 – 0 before the end of the first period when rookie Storm Swan scored. Swan currently leads the Falcons in points earned this season. Both goaltenders played excellent games as they faced over 75 shots combined. Fisher River goaltender Jarrett Hogue faced over 50 shots, playing an outstanding game. Falcon goaltender, veteran Andrew Smith made key saves throughout the game as he faced over 20 shots. The Hawks pulled to within one during a second period power play. Even though the Falcons controlled the majority of the play they were only holding a slim 2 – 1 lead going into the third period. The Falcons were issued 5 minor penalties, and a ten minute misconduct during the game while the Hawks had 3 minors, 1 major, and a ten misconduct. The Falcons quickly added a third goal when Nico Lisi scored assisted Craig Caine and Breyden Turner. Lundar put the game away during the power play when Jory Ross set up Breyden Turner for the fourth goal. The Falcons earned their fifth victory of the season, second in as many games and six points in the last 6 games. The Falcons will practice Thursday night and host the OCN Storm Saturday night at 8 pm in Lundar. This will be the first of the final six regular season games that the Lundar Falcons will have in the 2014/15 KJHL season.
