Steve Dodge: Paperback writer

Serenity snaps out of funk with come from behind 6-4 win over bear as Fraser River and Blue Collar grapple to a four all sister kisser.

As has become their Achille’s heel, Bear strode out to a lead only to lay back and watch Serenity score five straight for a well deserved 6-4 victory. The Builders have obviously been paying attention to the front runner’s secret to success as they also iced eight skaters which paid dividends after a sluggish start.

Cueing the comeback was (Billy) Joel Marsh with his third and fourth of the season to go with an assist on Lee (New Knee) Naeth’s hat trick marker which gives him six in two games versus the Bear Boys.

Notching his first of the campaign on an unassisted beauty was Doug Mack (Truck) as Jim (Great) Scott dominated both ends of the ice and earned a trio of helpers. Keeping up with his Brother-in-law in the goal scoring category was the Bear’s Chris (Crown) Royle who has now put the biscuit in the basket in four straight contests.

Taking advantage of some sloppy Serenity play early was Shane (The Pain) Baker on a shorty as (Silent) Seth Phillips rounded out the scoring as he dipsy doodled his way to his first of the season.

The other contest saw more spills and chills than the Nazko highway as Blue Collar found their work ethic in a four all tie against the league-leading Chevy Crew. Showing his teammates and the opposition the meaning of howitzer was BCS’s Kevin (Knightrider) Hesslegrave with 3 missiles that no mortal goalie could have stopped.

Earning a hat trick in the assist department was (Rocket) Rod Albers who finally showed the BCS executive that his two figure contract was worth the risk.

Also getting off the Schneid was (Jungle) Jim Kurta whose first points of the year couldn’t have come at a better morning.

Driving his GM dream team forward into the FHL Penthouse was Ian (Heartbreaker) Hannah who scored a pair and drew two helpers as Ken (Mercury) McMillan notched a singleton and collected a pair of assists. Punching 3 more Beliveau like assists was Jarett (The Ferret) Dumas who has equalled his total for all of last year (six) barely a month into the season!
