Athletics Grease Out Home Win

It wasn’t pretty but somehow the Grande Prairie Athletics found a way to come from behind Thursday night to improve their record to 12 and 1.

The opposition was faced with the same task the A’s had last Friday.

Try to win with a short bench.

And they nearly did.

With ten skaters the Canucks just about pulled off the upset but a strong third period helped push the Athletics to a win despite trailing for most of the game.

The A’s are back at it Friday night in Fort St. John.
