With a second wave of "Raider Flu" running rampant through the SVCU ranks, seven committed skaters and a goaltender took on a full force Raider Nation.
Keeping the game close once again, SVCU "Golden" goaltender Mike "Smitty" Smith was forced to make many highlight reel saves early. Capitalizing on limited scoring chances,SVCU sniper Warren "Wheels" Gray made no mistake in letting Raider net minder Warren Clark feel the heat of his wrist shot. Depositing two lasers high glove side, Gray completed the natural hat trick, burning Clark for a third time glove side. Derek "Fold'em" Holtom had a glorious opportunity to put SVCU ahead, but missed a wide open net by mere feet. Unconfirmed injury reports had Holtom breaking his finger on a penalty kill early in the first period.
SVCU goaltender Mike "Smitty" Smith's name was all over the rumor mill earlier today. Anonymous reports had the cagey tender flying out to Vancouver for a possible start with Team Canada. Unable to substantiate any of these reports, Smith was finally made available for comment earlier this afternoon. " Team Canada said I could have only 1 beer after the game, no chips, and that Pronger was playing no matter what so I told them I was playing for Germany instead."
Next action for SVCU is a Thursday night road trip down 83 for "Wing and Beer fest #3". Late report has the return of Craig " NO Wings No Glory" Zamzow suiting up fresh off an Olympic Hiatus.
