S.V.C.U. Open New Year with a 4-2-1 record...

Last Wednesday saw SVCU take on a rather youthful group of Kenville Flyer's. With a combined age less than Rex "Golden Vet" Leach and Dennis "Surgeon" Bowles, the Flyer's skated to a 7-6 victory. Up by 2 with less than 8 minutes left in the game, SVCU's strong defensive play collapsed. Hemmed in their own end for minutes at a time, the Flyer's sustained pressure finally paid off with two quick goals to tie the game. Despite numerous words of encouragement from the SVCU back end, the once well disciplined forwards, found themselves floundering around their own end aimlessly. Quick to pick up on this mass confusion, the Flyer's tallied once more to secure a 7-6 lead. Pulling tender Mike "Smitty" Smith in the dying seconds proved exciting, but SVCU was unable to find the back of the net. This week has the OldTymer's playing 3 in a row starting with L.P. on Wednesday night.
