BCS closing in on a long-standing record

Bear put a definite scare into BCS who conveniently had a can of bear spray on hand.

Bear put a definite scare into BCS who conveniently had a can of bear spray on hand to dissuade the bluff charge to bag the 6-5 record-tying victory.

With the win, BCS in within one game of the 1999-2000 Red squad who went 15 straight without a loss.

The BCS 14 wins in a row streak is a new mark that shows no signs of faltering as they can still click with all hands on deck.

A fully staffed Bear side actually had a 3-1 Zamboni time lead, which they turned into 4-2 and 5-4 advantages before succumbing to the tenacious BCS fore-check.

Leading the Bear scorers were the reunited Twin Towers of Brody Howdy Neighbour who scored a pair and assisted on Big Bob Merta’s rebound slam.

Igniting the Bear offence on many occasions was the Dynamite D Pair of Jim Great Scott who had three assists and Rob Wildone Weremy who scored on a gorgeous move and also earned an assist.

The not-to-be-denied BCS squad knew exactly when to rev their engines as Nathan The last Strand pin-balled one in from the slot as Ian Heartbreaker Hannah scored a pair on nifty moves.

Despite being minus three in the first half, Bruce The Moose Broughton earned a trio of assists including a shorthanded dish to Justin Time Rasmussen who knotted the contest at fives.

Then as lady luck would have it, Colin All Cars Keis scored the winner on a knuckle-ball floater that fooled the Bear tender to extend Bear’s losing streak to five.

The other contest saw the Black and Blue bruised Serenity side come out flying as they played 10 times as well as they did last week to earn a surprising 7-2 win over Fraser River.

Surprisingly, the Builders actually scored less goals in this week’s second half (five) than they did last week (six).

The difference was they were down by eight last week and tied at twos this time around.

Feeding off each other like Mutt and Jeff were Wade Augustus Fenton who pocketed the winner and assisted on all of Jeff Othello Needham’s hat trick tallies.

Scoring his first of the season for Serenity, after what seemed to be months of frustration was Curious George Ryan as Eric Bonsai Bodman scored in his second consecutive game.

Replying for Fraser River who are now a distant 12 points behind the front runners were Mike Vernon Ingram and Kevin Nightrider Hesslegrave, who continues to hold the scoring lead.
