FHL: Fraser River storms back into first

Steve Dodge brings us all the highlights from the FHL

Despite allowing a penalty shot goal against, Fraser River hopped back into the win column and the Penthouse suite with a 5-3 comeback victory over Bear.

Bear had actually surged to a 3-1 lead thanks to an unassisted beauty by Justin “Time” Rasmussen, and a penalty shot mesh rippler by Cam “Shaft” Graham who also scored in the more conventional method. The two-goal lead seemed to be satisfactory until Fraser River cued the comeback with five minutes remaining as Richard “Prince” George blasted his second of the season to wake up the benches.

Two quick goals soon followed as Ian “Heartbreaker” Hannah tied it before Jimmy “The Greek” Sales scored his second of the morning to allow the Chevy Crew to surge into the lead. With Bear buzzing for the equalizer, Kris “Haymaker” Hayman floated one 200 feet into the empty net that just beat the buzzer to preserve the win.

The other contest saw Serenity kill two streaks with one goal as their 4-3 win not only halted BCS’ four-game win streak, but more importantly snuffed out their own five-game losing skid. The rather loosely played first half saw an oddly timed “no goal, net was off” call on what appeared to be a BCS tally that somehow revved up the Builder’s Mojo which had been AWOL for over a month.

Next thing you knew, Serenity had a 3-0 lead as Matt “The Punisher” Powell hammered one in before Glen “Boom Boom” Boudreau scored on consecutive breakaways.

The second stanza once again saw Serenity take advantage of one of their eight 1 on 0 chances as Lee “Nitro” Naeth made it a four-zip lead which appeared to be the clincher. As had been the case during their perfect November, BCS launched their comeback on the backs of the mayhem line known for causing havoc at both ends of the ice.

The combo of Nate “The Great” Strand, Chris “Crown” Royle and Steve “Sandbagger” Dodge combined for five points with Nate “The Great” going bar down to set the table. Goals by Jordan “Big J” Johnson after an unorthodox chest pass point shot and Kevin “Nightrider” Hesslegrave with the net empty trimmed the deficit to one but the Builders wouldn’t be denied for their first regulation win this season.
