FHL

A pair of games each feature a pair of beauties as Bear beats Blue Collar and Fraser River tops Serenity.

Bear continues to have all the right answers for Blue Collar as they started off strong, sagged in the middle and then peaked at the end in a 4-2 victory.

The opening goal came thanks to the most exciting play in hockey as Ian (Heartbreaker) Hannah was awarded a penalty shot after an AWOL stick entered the fray while he was on a breakaway. (Heartbreaker) made no mistake as he scored his first of three on a nifty deke. The Bear lead was doubled when Brody (Howdy) Neighbour found Dan (Can do it) Lowndes alone in front for his first of the season. With the BCS captain upset by his squad being shut-out for three consecutive periods by the ferocious Bear defence, he stacked a line that wasted little time erasing the goose egg as Jim (Soupy) Sales swatted one in. A couple of shifts later Chad (The Comet) Swanson knotted the score thanks to a terrific assist by (King) Richard Lindstrom who also drew a helper on his squad’s first tally. With the going getting tough, it was time to call in the big gun and (Heartbreaker) made no mistake as he pranced around the BCS zone to collect his second and third of the morning on one incredible shift.

The other contest saw a battle to stay out of the FHL cellar as Serenity tried to slam the door on the Chevy Crew but Fraser Rivers resilience was too much as they clawed out to win by a 4-2 score.

Giving the Builders the early lead was Dave (Chainsaw) McCulloch who notched his first of the season and 37th of his FHL career, which is slightly behind his penalty pace. Also scoring for Serenity was Lee (Nitro) Naeth who is obviously not fully recovered from his hunting trip to the Spatsizi. Cueing the comeback for GM was Colin Keis (To Rebecca), Glen (Pillars of the Earth) Boudreau and Kevin (Eye of the Needle) Hesslegrave who all scored and assisted on another. Collecting his first points of the season was Randy (Hammer of Eden) Crofts who is looking forward to the new tie breaking sudden death shoot-out format just announced.

 

This week in Season 12 (2005) saw Russ (Egg Foo) Young score a half dozen goals and add two assists as Clint (Make my Day) Winchester notched six (or was that seven, punk) points in Green’s 14-8 shoot-out over Gold.
