Blue Collar hands Serenity a 10-4 big daddy whipping as Bear calls up a former player to lead them to a 4-1 victory over Fraser River. Despite only having eight skaters, they were an elite eight for BCS as they became a wrecking ball gone wild in the 10-4 destruction of the Builders.
Jumping up to play the ultimate power forward was Scott The Hammer Fairless who ripped in a hat trick and added four stellar assists.
Playing the entire game on defence was Rob Weremy Wallet who scored his first for his adoptive team as his D partner Bruce Is Loose Broughton registered a quartet of assists.
Also notching a hat trick to surge into the scoring lead was Justin Time Rasmussen as Ian The Curler Hannah continued his success on ice with a goal and a trio of helpers.
Matching his jersey number with a pair of tallies was Rod The Roadrunner Albers who continues to be amazed by his high scoring teammates who now hold five of the top eight positions in the scoring race.
Having respectable games for Serenity was Dan The Man Lowndes who scored a singleton and assisted on a pair of last minute goals by Chris Crown Royle who is pleased by the success of his latest apple flavour.
The other contest saw a shrewd move by Bear Captain Mike Port Moody who reeled in a former teammate to lead his squad to a 4-1 victory over Fraser River.
Scoring the hat trick and displaying a top gear that isn’t often engaged at 6 a.m. was Waylon and Willie L’Heureux who sniped three identical shots from the slot.
Also scoring for Bear was Randy Crafty Crofts who showed incredible patience on a blue-line in breakaway for his 17th of the season. The real key to the Bear win was great defence and outstanding goal tending as Port Moody made several scintillating saves to shut down the high flying Chevy Crew’s top line.
Doing their best to cue the comeback was the Fraser River checking line as Dave Chainsaw McCulloch who whacked in a rebound caused by the hard work of his line mates.
The FHL now takes a week off for spring break where the players will utilize their own hyperbaric-like chambers of Mexican vacations or Spring skiing to rejuvenate their aching joints before the final six games of the season.
