SVCU Old Tymer's Handcuff RCMP 9-1...

Showing no signs of letting up offensively, SVCU continued to play a "free wheeling " brand of hockey reminiscent of the Oiler Dynasty of the mid 80's. Recently reunited, the line of Rob "Hands" McDonald, Jake "OT Kid" Gray, and Pat "Crash" Morden cashed in for five counters. Dubiously compared to the infamous Russian "KLM" line of the late 70's, the "MGM Grand" line used short, crisp passes that kept the RCMP on their heels as they maintained control of the puck for seemingly the entire game. The Veteran line of Gary "Duke" Kennedy, Dennis "Surgeon" Bowles, and Rex "Golden Vet" Leach performed the "Trap" to near perfection. A unconfirmed report of two “lower body” injuries may have Leach and Bowles placed on the injury reserve list. Trying desperately to shake off his "Cruise Line" sea legs, Brian Minish aka "The Minister of Defense" played a rather cautious" stay at home” game. Taking advantage of this seemingly new defensive style of play, blue liners Warren "Wheels" Gray and Craig "Bootleg" Zamzow continued to be aggressively involved in the team's offense. If not for the outstanding play of goaltender Mike "Smitty" Smith, the outcome of the game may not have been so favorable for SVCU. Next action for SVCU sees them do battle with the Swan River Raider's on Sunday evening.
