It was in the third and final period that the Crossfire’s really picked up steam, leaving the Bandits struggling and failing to keep up.

With a one point lead already the Crossfire’s seemed determined to trump any hope the Bandits had of winning this match, netting four more goals in the final period.

Crossfire Ben Taylor was the high scorer for the Crossfire’s netting four of the nine goals.

The Bandits returned to Prince George without a victory making only five of the 40 attempted shots during the game, with nine assists.

Bringing in another victory on their home ice were the Crossfire’s, netting nine goals with 12 assists over the three period match.

Though they couldn’t beat or even match the Crossfire’s goal points the Bandits nearly doubled the Crossfire’s in penalty time with a total of 53 minutes in comparison to the Crossfire’s 27 minutes but the Crossfire’s stood their ground against the brutal team.

It is a hard time of the year for the Crossfire’s with many of their younger players having conflicting schedules. But coach Pat Gibbs knows that as long as he can get the players at the games it will be a good match.
