The Northstars Hockey Academy won one and lost one on home ice in Williams Lake Thursday, Jan. 5, playing two games against the Vancouver Sharpshooters.

Hometown crowds were able to cheer on the team at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex in Rink 1.

The first game began at 7:45 a.m. and the Northstars were up a respectable 4-0 on the Vancouver team halfway through, and ended the game 7-0.

The local U15 Junior Prospects League team successfully dominated the first game with 49 shots on the Vancouver goal and only taking 19 on their own net.
