SVCU Overcomes Shaky Start to Ground Flyers.....

An uncharacteristic giveaway in the opening shift by Warren “Wheels” Gray, gave the Kenville Flyers an early 1-0 lead. SVCU quickly regrouped and went on to down the Flyer’s 14-3. Gray, attempting to pass the puck behind the net, had it careen off the side to a wide open Flyer, who promptly deposited it into the back of the SVCU net. Whispers of "give it away, give it away, give it away now" supposedly could be heard from the Old Tymer’s bench. Undaunted by his mistake, Gray proceeded to tie the game on the next shift and SVCU never looked back. In the onslaught that followed, SVCU took control, demonstrating their strong passing game. At times, the forward line of Gray-Gray-& Morden seemed more interested in setting up the perfect play, than scoring, but did finish on many chances. The line of Bowles-Knight-Eggie, also chipped in offensively. On the heels of his “Hat Trick” performance, proving once again that he is not a “one trick pony”, Dennis “Surgeon” Bowles managed to fire a "bullet" past the almost-impenetrable glove-side of Flyer net minder Ernie Pierrepont. The defensive pairing of Campbell & Henkelman, aided by Craig “Gotta Go” Zamzow for 15 minutes of the first period, were a bit baffled by the early departure of their teammate. An unconfirmed source heard the exhuberant D-Man saying, "I'm heading home for a belated Valentine's Day present". Derek “Hips” Henkelman had a strong game - impressing his teammates with his ability to play any and every position. Mike “Smitty” Smith was stellar and seemed unfazed by Kenville's early lead. In a late game move, Blaine “Soupy” Campbell was moved to centre ice to offer his rendition of back checking. The big " D-Man” turned "power forward", ended up scoring 4 goals, and had he played the whole game at centre ice, he may have just had a shot at breaking the goals per game record, set by Marvin “Sniper” Clarkson a few weeks earlier. SVCU hosts the Action Old-timers next Wednesday night.
