Blues fall to No. 4 Steelers, 6-2

The Blues were back at home tonight after more than a week away. This time, the boys were taking on the No. 4 Selkirk Steelers.

The Blues were the first to the scoreboard. Selkirk had a pair in the box, leaving room for Codey Behun to pick up a power-play goal with a little help from Tony Apetagon and Michael Ladyman.

The Steelers answered back a couple minutes later, tying it 1-1. The score held steady throughout the second period, but the third period was action-packed.

The visitors went on to put away another two goals, extending their lead to 3-1. However, the Blues weren’t about to give up without a fight. With just over two minutes left to go, Braeden Binda scored for the Blues with Sulivan Shortreed on the assist. That narrowed the score to 3-2.

The Blues pulled their goalie, trying to pull the score back to par. It resulted in two empty-net goals and one more on top for the Steelers to take this one 6-2.

The Blues play again on Tuesday, Jan. 22 as they host the Winker Flyers. Start time for that game is at 7 p.m.
