Two weeks before Christmas and the Tiny Tim Builders receive an early wish in an 11-4 win over Fraser River to end their 11 game skid as BCS wins their 11th straight, 4-1 over bear.
If ever a team was due for a victory, it was Serenity who has kept pace with the Edmonton Oilers in the loss department and taking the cue from their Alberta cousins they both ended record tying 11 game losing streaks this week.
The 11-4 drubbing of the Chevy Crew was a masterpiece to behold as their scorers, plumbers and enforcers all lit the lamp to give them the second longest current winning streak in the FHL.
Leading his squad to victory was none other than number 11 Chad Comet Swanson who scored an unassisted marker and pitched in six scintillating assists.
Notching the hat trick was Jeff Dasher Needham as George Prancer Paul collected a pair of gift wrapped goals.
Also scoring a pair thanks to his favourite in-law was Dancer Dan Lowndes as Chris Rudolph Royle and Wade Vixen Fenton each scored a goal to go with a helper.
Putting up a half-hearted Scrooge like effort were Fraser River Reindeer Kevin Donner Hesslegrave who sniped another couple and added two assists as Mike Blitzen Ingram and Kris Cupid Hayman each pocketed singletons.
Meanwhile, the Barn on Barlow wasn’t about to host a miracle on Vaughan Street as Bear kept it close until late in the game before BCS prevailed 4-1.
The tight checking affair saw both Tender’s sparkle throughout the contest that Bear never led.
Opening up the scoring on a gorgeous move that would have Marv Albert fired up was Justin The Franchise Rasmussen whose bar down howitzer gives him 18 for the campaign.
Scoring what proved to be the winner was Ian Heartbreaker Hannah who fired a close range rocket five hole for a two zip lead.
Giving Bear some much needed hope was Kieron “Cowboy” Langdon who scored from a sharp angle before suffering a wicked cut just above the eye.
With their goal scorer off for stitches and a forward leaving early Bear was down to eight skaters for the second half.
Several penalty calls had the furry boys scrambling until Rod Gilbert Albers scored on the power play to extend the BCS lead to 3-1.
Minutes later a moderately controversial penalty shot was awarded to Bear but Mike Gumby Smith shut the door to douse any hope of a Bear comeback.
