Beer, Wings, 9 - 1 score, Does it Get Any Better ? .......

Rounding out the week with a road trip to Benito to take on the Kenville Flyers, SVCU Old Tymer's continued their goal scoring prowess. Playing to a near scoreless draw, Jake "OT Kid" Gray put SVCU on the score board with less than 1 minute to play in the first period. Held scoreless in the first, the line of Bowles, Clarkson, and McDonald drew blood early and often in the second frame. Marvin "Sniper" Clarkson struggled to find the back of the net in the first frame, put to rest any thoughts of a scoring drought in the second frame, where he led the charge with 5 plus markers. Dennis "Nogoaloff" Bowles and Rob “Stone Hands" McDonald kept the big center men well fed all evening. Adding some speed and finesse to the veteran line of Barry "Shooter" Eggie and Rex "GoldenVet" Leach, Jake Gray making crisp passes, set the plate on countless occasions. The defensive trio of Blaine "Soup" Campbell, Craig "Head High" Zamzow, and Warren “Wheels" Gray moved the puck with ease, jumping in on many offensive drives. A relatively quite night for puck stopper Mike “Smitty" Smith, allowed the mask man to fine tune the basics of his game. Post game discussion seemed to center around the defensive commitment of Marvin "Sniper" Clarkson. At times being mistaken for a third opposition defenseman, Clarkson was quoted as saying "You can't score 10 goals in your own end". SVCU hosts the Valley Outlaws Wednesday and then has an encounter with the RCMP Thursday, and finishes out the week with a Sunday evening tilt with the Swan River Raiders.
