After a last minute come back in last weeks' tilt, the much anticipated rematch with the Kenville Flyers turned out to be a one sided affair. Scoring early and often, SVCU jumped out to a 3-0 lead before the Flyers knew what hit them. Dana "Handcuffs" Harris doing what he does best, skated, fore checked, and lead all scorers with four. Rob "Thirsty" McDonald somehow managed to score a hat trick, but should be overlooked by the countless give aways and errant passes performed at his expense. Line mate, power forward Rick "Whiskey" Liske Jr. had an outstanding game. Tape to tape passes, relentless corner cycling, and hard nose net crashing , rewarded Jr. with a 2 goal 3 assist evening. Jeremy "Giving" Gray although held scoreless, set the table more often than a waitress at the Credit Union Annual supper and general meeting. Showing that it isn't all about scoring, the flashy right winger finished the game a impressive plus 12 !! The SVCU blue line was not to be denied, as all three D men went end to end finishing off we high light reel goals. Goaltender Mike "Smitty" Smith had a steady game, despite one or two that he would of liked to have back. Facing shot after shot around the chin strap , Smith was more than willing to give his trapper a work out. SVCU has yet another 3 games in three nights, starting next Wednesday against Action Oldtimers.

After back to back wins against the Silver Seven, SVCU continued their winning ways with a 11-3 win over the Minitonas Loggers. Icing eight skater's, SVCU was held scoreless until the mid way point of the first period. Four quick goals put SVCU ahead and they never looked back. With the Logger's pressing early in the second, the game took a huge momentum shift when SVCU power forward Rick "Whiskey " Liske Jr. administered some "Old School" stick work to an over zealous Logger forward. Leading all SVCU scorers was Warren "Wheels" Gray potting a hat trick on his 20 plus shots on goal performance. Warren "Clarkie" Clark, Rob "On the Wagon" McDonald, Randy "Knees" Matekia, and Whiskey Jr. added a pair each. Mike "Smitty" Smith's penalty shot woes continue, however upon further video review, it appears that the net minder may have actually gotten a piece of his glove on it before watching it glide into the net.
