S.V.C.U. OldTymer's extend their winning streak....

In what could be described as their best defensive outing this year, S.V.C.U. won a tight checking game against a much younger Swan River Raider hockey club 5-3 Sunday night . Once again running a short bench, which was missing the likes of Warren Gray and Jeff Knight, arguably two of the top snipers on the team, S.V.C.U. relied on a solid team defensive effort. At times , this type of play seemed to confuse the younger , faster Raider players. Veteran all-star defence men Blaine "Soupy" Campbell and Craig "Zammer " Zamzow logged their usual 58 plus minutes each, breaking up countless rushes, and sending head high clearing passes to breaking forwards. The dynamic duo also had a very strong offensive showing, accounting for three of the five S.V. C. U. goals. Rookies Chris Zamzow and Aaron Goethe had strong debuts. Chris had the the pleasure of filling in as the third D-man. and was overheard on the bench saying "I don't think I'm gonna puke, my wind is fine now, but my legs are toast." Lugging 40 plus minutes in his first game may have been a little to much to ask of the young fella. Rookie Aaron Goethe was the spark veteran line mates Dennis "Surgeon" Bowles and Gary "Duke" Kennedy were looking for. Leaving the tireless Goethe to handle all fore checking and back checking assignments, Kennedy and Bowles concentrated on hacking and wacking in front of the Raider goal all night. The McDonald Morden Gray line were not to be held scoreless as Jeremy "O.T. Kid" Gray found the back of the net early in the second period. Mike "Smitty" Smith was exceptionally sharp between the pipes, handling many close range shots with ease, once again showing that his expertise is not limited to his "Green " keeping abilities at the Swan River Golf and Country club.
