For the first time ever, all four teams of the FHL have one win and one loss after two weeks.
It took a while for Serenity to locate the key to beating the hot Bear goalie, but when they discovered an own goal would work they built a 3-1 lead that they watched disappear before breaking the tie with two dozen ticks on the clock for a 4-3 victory.
Leading the way for the Green heartbreakers was Todd (The Body) Gryschuk who scored once and added an assist on Wade (Don’t call me the Flash) Fenton’s first of the season.
Also finding the elusive bear twine was Eric (Foureyes) Bodman who bounced one in off a shin pad and Les (Knuckles) Nylen who was left alone in front and made no mistake to end the Bear Boys thoughts of an undefeated season.
Cueing the comeback for the men in stripes was Ian Hannah (Montana) who, like his namesake, showed his wild side with a nifty backhand and then a lucky bounce breakaway attempt that knotted the score.
Scoring a beauty while on a one on three foray was Brody (Aqualung) Neighbour as Michael (Dominator) Dodge made his FHL debut a good one with a perfect saucer pass that sprung (Montana) on his game tying tally.
The other contest saw a reversal of fortunes, as Fraser River could only muster one goal in a 5-1 loss to a suddenly potent BCS side who were shut-out in week one.
Several BCS players had big games as Jason (Junior) Johnson with one and Mike (Life of) Riley with two, earned their first FHL points.
Two well seasoned D men also got into the act as Richard (Canary gloves) Lindstrom scored the winner while (Markie) Mark Courtney scored his first of this campaign an amazing 21 weeks ahead of last year’s schedule.
Replying for Fraser River was their heart and soul sister Shane (Silverado) Thon who barely survived the dunk tank last weekend.
This week in Season 14 (2007) saw Brad (Howdy) Neighbour, Mike (The Mechanic) Enemark and (Out of his) Gord Salmons combine for a Supercalifragilistic 18 points as Red pounded White 15-5.
