Five games to the Lumber Cup

Week 17 featured a pair of upsets as the bottom feeders won their games versus the FHL cream of the crop.

The suddenly slumping BCS squad loses twice, 5-4 to Bear and 4-2 to Fraser River as Bear follows up their BCS upset with a 7-2 thumping of Serenity who a week earlier had roasted Fraser River 9-6.

Week 17 featured a pair of upsets as the bottom feeders won their games versus the FHL cream of the crop.

Bear started off their contest versus BCS on a 5-1 tear before the Black clad boys made it a 5-4 final.

Bear was led to victory by a pair on the opposite ends of the BMI score as Glen Garbage Goal Boudreau scored two and Jim Great Scott added a couple of fine assists.

Making it closer than it should have been for BCS was Justin Moves like Jagger Rasmussen with a pair of unassisted beauties as Avon Colin Keis scored his 18th of the season on a rocket one–timer.

Not surprisingly, this was only the second time Bear has defeated BCS with the last win coming in week one.

The other contest saw a last man standing slug-fest as Serenity flexed their offensive muscles in a 9-6 victory over Fraser River.

By George had it for the Builders as George Ironman Ryan scored twice as George Ringo, John Paul strummed his way to a singleton and an assist.

Taking his adoptive team on his wide shoulders was GM’s Andrew Gabe Kaebe who made it respectable with an amazing quartet of tallies and one assist as Budd Crash Carter chipped in with a trio of helpers.

Week 18 was a mirror of last week as it featured a blowout and a nail biter as Bear blasted Serenity 7-2 and Fraser River eked by BCS 4-2.

Serenity obviously used up all of its luck last week as they had trouble making even one pass with turnovers the key to Bears success.

Leading the Bear bunch was Kieron Cowboy Langen who lassoed the natural hat-trick as Brody Good Neighbour unclogged his scoring touch with two goals and three assists.

Showing that size does matter on the blue line was Big Bob Merta who used his extension stick to chip in with four assists.

Replying for the Builders was Chris Crown Royle on a wicked back-hander as Jeff Needles Needham scored on a rebound howitzer.

The other contest saw BCS lose its second in a row and third in four, 4-2 to Fraser River.

The star of the contest was GM’s  net minder Trevor Gordie Howe who did his own Gordie Howe hat-trick with a paddy-stacker, a rapier like glove and a scintillating stick save.

Scoring the empty net clincher was Dave Chainsaw McCulloch who keeps on firing despite a faulty sparkplug.

Making it close for BCS was Nathan Strand By Me who swatted in a juicy rebound for his third of the season.
