The Falher Pirates won their seventh straight game Saturday night, whipping the visiting Grimshaw Huskies 7-2.
FAL left no doubt in this game, leading 4-0 after one period and 6-0 after two. They led 7-0 in the third before GRIM scored two late PPGs.

Pat Rowan and Trevor Tokarz paced the FAL’s attack with two goals each. Darren Kramer, Jay Anderson and Trevor Mazurek added the other goals. Kramer’s goal was his league-leading fourth SHG of the season. Kevin Monfette added three assists.
Bond Hawryluk and Ty Wiebe scored PPGs for GRIM in the final four minutes to break the shutout bid of Chad Rycroft, who stopped 37 of 39 shots.
FAL [10-3-0-1] has won three of four meetings this season and now leads the East Division by seven points over Manning {7-7-0-0] and 10 points over GRIM [5-6-1-0].
