Former SVCU all-star and current G.M and Director of Hockey Operations Dave "Stick Man" Bettesworth is pushing hard for a new?? and rather radical training program. "It's a combination of intense dry land training sessions, followed up with a very strict and essential carbohydrate replenishing schedule. " It was this exact type of training that kept Bettesworth up among the league's upper echelon for the majority of his playing career. "I feel that it's time for me to share all my personal training tips and experiences, If I'm going to help get this organization back on top." No current players for SVCU were available for comment.
Coming off a stellar "Shut Out" performance, Mike "Smitty" Smith thought now was as good as time as any to go on a week long hunting expedition. Called up for the first time since being placed on the injury reserve list, Rick "Tetley" (as in more holes than a tea bag) Reich, admirably filled the void. Reich, a stand up goalie from a forgotten era, played superbly. Remaining on his feet for 59:45 out the 60:00, this somewhat unorthodox style seemed to stymie Silver Seven Shooters all evening. Rookie sensation Mike "Moves" Miller was a one man scoring machine. Netting seven plus goals himself, (many of them deemed highlight reel quality) the unselfish rookie continuously set the plate for line mates Chris "Lanks" Zamzow and Jeremy "OT Kid" Gray . Taking time out from his busy running schedule, SVCU blue liner Brian "Barnes" Minish was once again found floating in familiar territory for a major portion of the game. Reich was left wondering on more than one occasion if Barnes had changed his position to Denter. Next action for SVCU has them hosting L.P on Wednesday night.

Picking up where he left off last season, Smitty recorded his first shut out the season. " The puck was like a beach ball , there was no way that I was letting anything pass me tonight" Smitty was quoted as saying.Icing eight skaters for the second consecutive week, SVCU had no problem finding the back of the net no less than 13 plus times.

After opening the season with a hard fought 2-2 draw with Raiders, S.V.C.U. followed up with a 10-5 loss at the hands of the Valley Outlaws. Looking for their first "W" of the season, a short benched S.V.C.U. squad skated to a 10-4 win over Action Old Timers. Warren "Wheels" Gray and Craig "Zammmer" Zamzow playing 60 plus minutes on the back end, skated as if in mid season form. Veterans Dennis "Surgeon" Bowles and Barry "Shooter" Eggie were a dominant offense force. Eggie, showing his shooting expertise, deposited a nifty backhand behind a sprawling Action goaltender. Mike "Smitty" Smith, although not having one of his busier nights, played a solid game between the pipes. Things seem to heading in the right direction, next up for S.V.C.U. are the Loggers from Minitonas.
