FHL: Paper back Writer

Fraser River back on top while Blue and Bear hug it out.

Asked to explain why the Fraser River Squad consistently plays great, Captain Mike (Port) Moody was quick to point out that it hasn’t been his doing very often as he has only four more regular season appearances than Luongo so far this fall.

Needless to say, when your team is filling the net in front of you, the pressure is off the goaltender and Captain Mike barely registered a pulse in the 6-1 trouncing. Leading his beloved motormen in all phases of the game was Shane (The Pain) Thon who scored two, which included the winner and also registered a pair of assists as he glided around the rink with the greatest of ease.

Finally tallying his first marker of the season was the ever versatile Richard (Bigboy) Lindstrom who also chipped in a couple of hardworking helpers. The Terrific Trio of Ian (Heartbreaker) Hannah, Randy (Heartburn) Crofts and Rob Weremy (Car Keys) all utilized some dancing with the stars footwork to notch a singleton and post an assist.

Meanwhile back in Serenity Builder Land, Todd (The Body) Gryschuk was their only player to decline the free drubbing as he hustled, bustled and jostled his way to their lone tally which barely (if ever) crossed the goal line.

The contest in the un-named but open for suggestions better than “Rink 2” side, a see-saw contest saw the lead change hands twice in the 2-2 tie.

The most effective player on the ice was Bears’ Scott (Gina) Davis, who once again sparkled at centre with two lickity split markers to lead all scorers. Replying for a Blue Collar side who’s just happy to keep it within a field goal was the suddenly hot Derek (and his Dominoes) Burdekin as Dave (Chainsaw) McCulloch was credited for the equalizer after his howitzer hit the crossbar and ricocheted in off a pair of CCM Tacks.

Filling in the long voids between goals were fine performances from BCS Tender Mike (The Mechanic) Enemark who consistently flashed the leather and Bear keeper Zack (Attack) Leslie who squeezed a couple of near misses off the thin red line.
