Kramer’s hat trick too much for Huskies

Welcome back, Darren Kramer!

After serving his one-game suspension and watching his team lose to the Manning Comets 4-2 Dec. 7, Kramer returned with a vengeance to score three goals to lead the Falher Pirates to a 6-3 win at Grimshaw Dec. 12.

The win puts the Pirates [4-5-0-0] eight points clear of the last place Huskies [0—6-1-1] who are still winless this season after eight starts.

Pat Rowan also scored twice in the win and added an assist. Walker Cote scored the other goal and added two helpers.

The Pirates never trailed in the contest. Rowan opened the scoring only 57 seconds into the contest. Brendan Hawryluk tied the game on a power play with Jay Anderson off for hooking.

However, Kramer scored his first of the night and Rowan his second in a 22-second span late in the period and the Pirates were off and running.

In the second period, Kramer scored to make it 4-1 with assists going again to Cote and Dallas Brochu.

But the Huskies were not going away. Corson Fairless scored on a power play and Cole Diewert short-handed before the end of the period and the Huskies were back in the game. All three of the Huskies goals on the night were on special teams.

The clubs battled through a scoreless first 13 minutes of the third period before Kramer netted his third goal with 6:49 left, on the power play with Izaak Hudson off for interference. It was the Pirates only power play goal on five chances.

Cote added an insurance goal with 3:51 left to seal the win.

The game was the last road game for the Pirates before the Christmas break. The Pirates play two home games in two nights next weekend when they host Manning Dec. 20 and Grimsahw Dec. 21. Game time is 8:30 p.m. for both contests.
