Countdown to HOME OPENER vs St. Malo Warriors
(Oct 19/14)
Posted Dec 14/14 - The Walls Came Tumbling Down

For the first time this season the Lundar Falcons let in double digits in regular season play. The North Winnipeg Satelites showed the Lundar Falcons why they were first place in the Keystone Junior Hockey League. Winnipeg came into Lundar on Saturday night and defeated the Falcons 11 – 2. All the improved play Falcons have been displaying recently came to an abrupt halt Saturday as they had difficulty mounting any attack or providing any consistent defense. Winnipeg Satelites outshot the Falcons 51 – 27 and held period leads of 2 – 0 and 7 – 2. Both Falcon goals came late in the second when the score was 6 – 0. Breyden Turner scored from Aldyn Gray and Thomas Le Strat with just under five minutes to go in the second. Brandon Worthing scored on the power play after being set up by Landen Gray and Braden Lussier with just over two minutes to go in the second to narrow the score to 6 – 2. That would be the closest the Falcons would get as the Satelites scored four more goals in the third. Winnipeg was issued 10 minors, 1 major, 2 ten minute misconducts and a game misconduct. The Falcons were issued 8 minor penalties, 1 major, 2 ten minute misconducts and a game misconduct. The Falcons will practice Tuesday in Lundar at 8:30 to regroup in preparation for their two games before Christmas. The first game will be on the road in Peguis on December 18th at 8 pm. Then the Falcons will host the St. Malo Warriors on Friday December 19th at 8 pm in Lundar.

Posted Dec 13/14 - Quick Backstops Falcon’s Improved Play

On a snowy Sunday afternoon in Norway House the Falcons took to the ice just sixteen hours after falling to the Northstars by 1 goal the night before. Eleven skaters and their goalie knew they had to play a well-disciplined game positionally and defensively. The Falcons waited for their breaks during the first period and they were rewarded with three breakaways but unfortunately all were denied. With 55 seconds to go in the first period the Northstars capitalized on a Falcon breakdown and scored to take a 1 – 0 lead which they took into the second period.  

The two teams continued to battle against each other evenly, each registering 27 shots by the end of the second period. The Northstars took a 2 – 0 lead just 3:30 minutes into the second but the Falcons remained determined to chip away at the Norway House defense. With 7:03 remaining in the second period Breyden Turner set up Lundar assistant captain Blake Klippenstein who scored to narrow the gap to 2 – 1. This goal energized the short Falcon bench and 52 seconds later rookie Storm Swan, after making a tremendous move, buried the puck in the back of the Northstars net to tie the score at 2. Immediately following his goal he was crosschecked heavily into the boards and had to leave the period with a neck injury.

On the following power play Dylan Wittinger put the Falcons ahead 3 – 2. Twenty seven seconds into the third period Breyden Turner scored on the power play after being set up by Troy Kaartinen and Brandon Worthing. Ten seconds after taking a 4 – 2 lead the Falcons received their first penalty of the game. Lundar had 4 minor penalties, 1 major and 1 game misconduct issued to them in the third period while Norway House received 8 minors, 2 majors and 2 game misconducts during the game. After successfully killing off their first minor penalty, momentum remained with the Falcons as rookie Zachary Smith scored his first goal of the season after receiving a pass from linemate Nico Lisi. Lundar captain Troy Kaartinen scored the Falcons third goal of the period on a breakaway after receiving a pass from Aldyn Gray. In the third period goaltender Randy Quick stopped all twenty one shots he faced as Norway House outshot the Falcons 48 – 40 during the game. The Falcons skated away with a 6 – 2 victory which would make a long bus ride home a bit more relaxing. Nightmares of bus trips in the past revealed their ugly faces once again. The excellent skills of the bus driver as he drove at limited speeds through heavy snowfall kept the Falcons safe. Snow build up and ice under the bus including a torn alternator belt resulted in more delays as repairs needed to be done. An eight hour trip took twelve hours as the bus rolled into Lundar at 4 am and many players still had to drive on to Winnipeg in their own vehicles. Dedication and commitment will continue to be tested as Falcon players will practice Tuesday and Thursday December 9th and 11th in Lundar as they prepare to take on the Keystone Junior Hockey League`s number one team North Winnipeg Satelites. The game will be in Lundar at 8 pm on Saturday  December 13th. Being competitive is what this Falcon team strives for and with the injuries to players mounting others will continue to step up.
