With both teams feeling the affects of "Corporate Challenging" the previous weekend, this "Wednesday Night Whoop Up" was lack Lustre at best. Teams traded goals early, with Barry "Shooter" Eggie opening the scoring with a beautiful re-direct. The Valley Outlaws increased their lead to three , before SVCU rushing D-man Warren "Wheels" Gray broke in on the right side and wired a wrist shot top shelf. Scoring his second on the evening, Gray closed the gap to two with another twine bulging snipe. Randy "One Zone" Matekia red lighted with two minutes remaining making it a one goal game. Pressing for the equalizer in the dying moments, SVCU gifted goal scorer Brian "Go To" Gilroy was robbed by Outlaw goaltender Derek Poole.
Looking to jump start the team, Elder Statesmen Barry "Shooter" Eggie delivered an open ice hit that quickly added an "Edge" to the second period. Inspired by a teammate old enough to be his father, bruising blue liner Blaine "Crusher" Campbell picked up the physical play and layed some major lumber on opposing fore checking forwards. Held off the score sheet the famed M-G-M line of McDonald, Gray, and Morden had numerous chances but could find no Finnish. Filling in on the blue line for the first time, rookie Ryan "Cowboy" Keowan had a solid game. Despite a shaky start, SVCU Masked Man , Michael "Smitty" Smith was outstanding, keeping CU in the game. Sunday night has SVCU facing cross town rivals Swan River Raiders for the fifth time this season.
