FHL skates in for two high scoring affairs

Fraser River changes course, grabs a gear and pulverizes Bue Collar 7-5 as Bear mauls Serenity 7-3 thanks to “Killer’s” continued hotstreak.

Fraser River changes course, grabs a gear and pulverizes Bue Collar 7-5 as Bear mauls Serenity 7-3 thanks to “Killer’s” continued hotstreak.

Based on last week’s preliminary results, odds makers had BCS as a slight favourite over Fraser River, but that turned out to be a risky bet as the Chevy Crew blew the doors off the BCS crummy 7-5.

Leading the beat down was “Captain” Kevin Hesslegrave as he scored a hat trick with super-sub Wade Price “Was right” chipping in a pair of goals and assists.

Also having a fine morning was Jason “Junior” Johnson with a trio of assists and Derek “Mike” Kitamura who scored once and earned one assist.

Scoring the goal of the game (GOG) was Shane “The Pain” Thon who split his own D before roofing the puck where the sun don’t shine.

Replying for the BCS side who seemed a bit discombobulated at times was Les “Knuckles” Nylen and Colin “Kevlar” Keis who both scored a pair to go with an assist. Also scoring for BCS was Ian Hannah “Alberta” who nicklebacked his first of the year.

Meanwhile back in the Barn on Barlow that looked more like a sauna than an arena Bear started off and ended strong as they frustrated Serenity at every turn in the 7-3 win.

The lucky centre man who got to play with “Killer” this week

was Lee “Nitro” Naeth who seized the opportunity scoring four goals and an assist as Randy “Killer” Crofts continued his wonderful start with a post and in rocket and three first half assists.

Anchoring the #1 line was Brian “Big Papi” Inwood who bounced one in and added a helper.

Also getting into the act was Steve “Sayonara” Dodge whose flail on the backhand found the twine as “Dynamite” Derek Burdekin scored the “GOG” with a shorthanded, end to end, water bottle blasting beauty.

Replying for a suddenly sullen Serenity squad was Wade “The Blade” Fenton on a toe drag clinic as he also assisted on Dan “The Man” Lowdnes mesh rippler as Chad “The Comet” Swanson scored at least one goal but was only credited with a singleton.
