SVCU win one in the Polar Dome....

After suffering a 10-8 loss to the Kenville Flyer AA Midget team, SVCU skated to a 11-4 victory over the Loggers on the Frozen Tundra known as the Minitonas arena. CU alumnus Warren Clark on loan from the Swan River Raiders, filled in admirable for Mike "Smitty" Smith. Clark , a former puck stopper for the Dauphin Kings, spent the majority of the evening trying to stay warm in the comfy confines of the War Memorial Arena. Ryan "Cowboy" Keown led all SVCU scorers with 4 goals. Some long-standing rumors about Randy Mateika "going both ways" were proven accurate as he was forced to drop back to blue line for the last period. Veteran forward and team elder statesman Barry "Shooter" Eggie saw his first game action of the season and his mastery of the boards and snapshot were still evident. Darren "Pancake" Knight saw his first game action since "the hit" heard round the Valley!  With his teenage son cheering him on "Pancake" was stoned during a first period penalty shot by Logger net minder Jason Jersak. Other CU goal scorers were Jeff Knight, Chris Zamzow, Brian Minish, Blaine Campbell, Derek Holtom,and Craig Zamzow. Management has some tough decisions to make regarding the future of diminutive forward Rob " Slug" McDonald. After being "unclaimed" on the waiver wire, and the unsuccessful attempt to trade him to Swan River Action for an undisclosed amount of tape, the situation has left management shaking their heads. Director of Player Personnel and former CU standout David Bettesworth issued this statement "We have had talks with both McDonald and his agent and have tried to make it crystal clear to them the direction the club is taking and how we see him fitting into our long term plan.  Then we asked how his bottle washing and stick carrying abilities rated." SVCU's next action is Wednesday night when they entertain the Swan Valley Outlaws.
