Underdog loving crowd has plenty to cheer about on night one of Quesnel FHL playoffs

Wade “The Blade” scores both of his team’s goals in second game

The first game had all the makings of a rout as Bear had dominated Serenity all season long; posting a perfect 8-0-0 record versus the Cellar Dwellers.

However, pursuit of the Lumber Cup is the great equalizer, and Serenity didn’t quit as they overcame a 2-0 half-time deficit to win 3-2, as Wade Price “Is Right” scored the winner.

The late game should have been tight, as BCS had a 4-1-3 record versus Fraser River, who only had one loss in their last five games leading up to the 24th Lumber Cup.

The Chevy Crew looked good early, as their star D-man Kris “Haymaker” Hayman did it all on his own to open up the scoring on a long-range wrister.

That’s when Wade “The Blade” Fenton put BCS on his back as he scored a pair that both went in off the netminder’s back to earn a 2-1 half-time lead.

Both ‘tenders closed the door in the second half to allow Blue Collar the one-goal victory.

The FHL playoffs continue for the rest of the week in the Quesnel arenas.
