Senior Pontiacs On The Way Back From Whitehorse Games

The Bonnyville Senior Pontiacs might not have gotten a win in their two games against the Whitehorse Huskies up north this weekend, but the team is in high spirits from the once-in-a-lifetime experience.

“Saturday night we ran into some major penalty problems,” explains Senior Pontiacs board member Floyd Isley, summarizing both games. “We lost 9-1. Then last night… it ended up a 6-6 tie, went into overtime, still a tie and then we lost in the shootout.”

The Senior Pontiacs are still up in Whitehorse at the time of this article’s publishing. They’ll begin their flight back home at 4:45 today.

“It was a very unique experience” Isley adds. “We did lose a few guys with the injuries and stuff like that, so it was a little tougher game yesterday. We didn’t have a lot of bodies, but the boys came out and played very well.

The atmosphere at both games was great as well. Isley estimates the first game got about 1,200 people in the stands and the second between 8 and 900. “They treated us like gold. They flew us up here, put us in hotel rooms, gave us vehicles to drive. It was a great experience.”
