S.V.C.U. run the "Rapids"... 8-6.
A fast paced, end to end game saw the return of two veterans and a hired gun as SVCU downed Pelican Rapids 8- 6. Fresh off a 12 day "Sun and Sand" retreat, Blaine " Fabutan" Campbell was welcomed back on the blue line with open arms.The big Blue liner may have had trouble finding his legs, but not his penchant for smack talking fellow teammates. Donning the pads for the first time two weeks ,SVCU all star puck stopper Mike "Smitty" Smith wasted no time in testing out the vulnerable lower body injury. Taking two questionable rockets off the wire in stride, Smitty once again showed why he is without a doubt one of the leagues premiere net minders. The famed "M-G-M " line reunited once again accounted for 4 of the 8 goals. Unconfirmed sources have stated that this may have been Brian "Glitzy" Gilroy's last game in a SVCU jersey. The gifted goal scorer finished the game with 3 goals and 2 assists. "I need to spend more quality time with my wife", Gilroy was quoted after seen exiting the Star Cinema Friday evening. The other half of the famed" Biggest Loser Tandem", Derek "Holly Wood" Holtom was also seen escorting his wife out of the cinema. Both players missed Friday's game in Minitonas and may be facing possible fines and suspensions. Team General manager and Director of player personnel Dave "Dr.Hook" Bettesworth was unavailable for comment.
