The Fernie Ghostriders want to finish the season strong this weekend.
The Riders play a home-and-home with Golden starting Friday in Sparwood before hosting Creston Valley Sunday.
Head Coach Craig Mohr says they want to finish the regular season on a high note.
“Let’s get on a nice little last weekend roll here and hopefully translate into the next weekend when the playoffs get going.” says Mohr.
Mohr says they’ve approached the month of February as a seven-game playoff series.
Fernie has lost three and won once so far this month.
“If we beat Golden twice the Creston game will be kind of like a game seven.” explains Mohr. “That’s how we’ve approached it right now and the guys have been good this week in practice so I’m expecting we have to play well.”
Fernie is 5-1-0-0 against Golden this season, outscoring them 28-14. The Riders have managed to beat Creston Valley only once this season in seven attempts.
The Ghostriders have struggled with injuries this season but Mohr says they are as healthy as ever wither the exception of Jace Woodley who is down with a lower-body injury.
Meanwhile the Kimberley Dynamiters clash with Columbia Valley Friday before taking on the Creston Valley Thunder Cats Saturday.
The Ghostriders and Dynamiters begin their playoff series February 23 in Kimberley.
