Forestry Hockey League: Week 13 highlights

BCS finally wins its fourth; Serenity sends Fraser river into a tailspin.

After the flurry of goals last week only 14 were scored this week.

Before BCS began their improbable eight game losing streak, they were in first place with a 3-1-0 record.

Their only loss at that time, was a week one 6-0 defeat at the hands of Bear.

So, this must have been an extra special satisfying streak snuffer as BCS reversed the September result with a 6 love win of their own!

Finally, somebody other than the Captain led the way for Blue Collar as Richard Ward “Off Evil” stymied the Red-Hot Bear bunch who had erupted for 11 last week.

Also having a huge game, and proudly wearing the Blackhawk third jersey colour scheme, was Jim “Soupy” Sales whose first of two was the first winning goal for the diminutive playmaker this season.

Relegated to third star status was Kevin “Nightrider” Hesslegrave who also scored a pair to match his apple output and “Jack” Russel Higdon was credited with a goal and an assist.

Skating miles, after taking a much-deserved Maui break, was Matt “The Punisher” Powell who did most of the work on “Soupy’s” first before Mai Tai’ing one of his own.

The final result on Rink 2 turned out to be anticlimactic as Serenity scored the last four in their 6-2 win over the Fraser River GM side.

The tight checking contest saw both ‘tenders stand on their heads for the longest time as “Jumping” Josh Salmons made several uncanny saves while Trevor “Gordie” Howe tried to extinguish the flames caused by last week’s red-light special.

An impromptu screening of Don Cherry’s Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em 29, just before Zamboni time, turned out to be the TSN turning point as the Builders wouldn’t be denied in the second stanza.

Having one of the luckiest games ever was Derek “Bounce” Burdekin who wasn’t even shooting at the net on his two tallies that ricocheted off the end boards into the GM net.

Also scoring a pair for Serenity was Colin “Clutch” Keis who only had one goal since Halloween.

Justin “Time” Rasmussen collected his 11th of the season on a breakaway, after Cam “Shaft” Graham extended his point streak to 13 games with a top shelf howitzer.

Speaking of howitzer, that would be a good metaphor to describe the velocity and accuracy of GM’s Levon “Young gun” Johnson’s league leading 26th marker of the year which was set-up by Randy “Killer” Crofts who scored an Ovechkin like goal of his own.
