Flyers travel to  East Grand Forks for Section 8A quarterfinals

2/23/23 – In the Thursday contest at the East Grand Forks Civic Center, the Flyers hit the ice with a lot of energy. A large crowd of Flyers fans traveled to watch the game and saw their team hold their own through the first five minutes. With the Flyers killing a penalty, EGF scored a power play goal at 5:20. The Flyers didn’t give up and played hard. The Green Wave picked up two more goals to end the first period leading the Flyers 3-0.


The Flyers just weren’t able to spent much time in the offensive zone throughout the rest of the game. And the Green Wave literally came at the Flyers wave after wave. EGF scored two goals in each of the final two periods, with the final score EGF 7 – Flyers 0.


Flyers goalie Kassandra Fontaine faced 39 shots, making 32 saves. The team played their hearts out, but were playing the #5 team in the state. There was nothing to hang their heads about. The season had come to an end, but it was a great season for the Flyers.
