BCS going to the 21st Lumber Cup in the lead

The last week of the regular season shows that anybody can win

The last week of the regular season shows that anybody can win

the Lumber Cup as Bear breaks out in a 6-3 doubling of BCS as Fraser River surges over Serenity 7-3.

With the playoff match-ups already set, the last game of the season provided an opportunity for nagging injuries to be tested out as well as individual and overall scoring races to be finalized.

On the injury testing front, Lee Nitro Naeth passed his physical with flying colours as his eight week respite didn’t leave much rust attached as he notched the hat trick and assisted on Brian Bam-Bam Inwood’s third of the season in Bears 6-3 win over BCS.

Enjoying the opportunity to play up front was Jim Great Scott who was the trigger man on a pretty passing play as he matched Brody Howdy Neighbour’s goal and assist output. Getting plenty of ice time because of only two BCS spares on the bench was FHL scoring champ Justin Time Rasmussen who scored twice and assisted on a beauty by Hot Rod Albers.

The three points give him 65 for the year, three clear of Kevin Baywatch Hesslegrave who could only manage two points in Fraser Rivers 7-3 win over Serenity.

Another race appears to have ended in a tie as BCS Captain Bruce Is Loose Broughton played the entire game trying to overtake an idle Scott Little Softy Fairless in a Blue Collar D man point challenge.

His second assists resulted in matching 38 point totals with Little Softy getting the nod thanks to his higher goal (13-8) level?  The other contest in the rink that will host all of the Lumber Cup games, Fraser River overflowed the score sheet with seven goals to Serenity’s three.

Continuing to dominate from the rear-guard position was Chevy’s Kris Haywire Hayman who scored a pair of beauties to give him 16 for the season.

Leading all scorers was Rob Sparky Couturier who amped up the game with three helpers.

Scoring singletons for the hottest team entering the playoff`s was Jason Junior Johnson, Eric Frantic Stanick, Budd Crash Carter and Kevin Baywatch Hesslegrave who get to play Bear twice in the modified round robin.

Meanwhile back in the Serenity Saloon a trio of grinders tickled the twine as Todd The Body Gryschuk, Richard The Man with the Golden Gloves Lindstrom and Chris Sizzling Royle scored for the Builder bunch who will attempt to dent the BCS armour on Monday’s opening of the 21st annual FHL Lumber Cup.
