SVCU down Swan River Action (Stampeder Black Aces) 8-5...

 A fast paced, end to end game, resulted in the veteran SVCU club securing an 8-5 win over a young exuberant Swan River Action/Roblin North Star/ Swan Valley Stampeder combined roster. With three time league All- Star and current wing eating champion Craig "Hot and Spicy" Zamow on vacation in Florida, SVCU management  was  forced to make some last minute call ups. On loan from his parent club (commonly known as a conditioning stint) Everett Silver tips rookie defense men and wonder boy prodigy Evan "Man Boy" Morden made his season debut. Also called up, from the Swan Valley Stampeder AA Midget roster , younger sibling Riley "Wrist Shot" Morden, filled in admirable as the teams prototypical "Power Forward."  The younger Morden possesesing the skill, skating agility, and grit of not to be mistaken current team , mucker and proud  father of  both  Pat " Crash" Morden, scored in his sophomore debut.
Skating beside veteran blue liner Blaine "Soup Dog" Campbell, the twin towers averaged out at 6'3 - 220 lbs. Warren "Wheels" Gray , the third D-man in the rotation, had another strong outing, providing SVCU with a quick transition game, and two timely goals.With Morden filling in on the back end, Kevin "Special K" Kopecky was penciled in down the middle. Heeding the advice from teammate and resident nutrition and fitness guru Mark " Make mine a double" Munro, the magic continued for Kopecky, as he went on to register his first official hat trick since 1988.
History was in the making , as all three of the Morden Men registered a goal. Not since Gordie skated with his sons Mark and Marty, has this feat been duplicated.

Merry Christmas to all, and see ya in the rink in 2011!

8-6 win over the Mighty Bucks...

 Playing the "2 D-man system" to a T, SVCU skated to a 8-6 victory over the Mighty Bucks. The Bucks, debuting their new look "Third Jersey", kept the game close, until Brian "The Thrill" Gilroy salted the victory with his second of the evening. Still recovering from what some thought may have been a career ending upper body injury, the soft handed center man continued his assault on the league scoring race. Warren " The Wall" Clark on loan from cross town rivals Swan River Raiders, had an outstanding game between the pipes. A throw back to the "Stand up Goalie" era, Clark made several key saves while still maintaining the absolute driest pads in the league!
Forced to move to the back end, elder statesman Brian "Back Stop " Minish, showed the stamina and versatility of 22 year old rookie, playing the full 60 minutes. Playing partner and SVCU blue line specialist, Warren "Wheels" Gray, had perhaps one of his finest games of the year. Forced to not only back up his playing partner, Wheels was called upon to clear the defensive zone all evening. Contributing offensively through countless end to end rushes, Gray was a key factor in securing the win. Rounding out the scoring for SVCU were Mark " Manhandler" Munro, Jake "OT Kid" Gray, Randy "Red Line" Matieka, and Rob " Blogmeister" McDonald.

Brian "The Thrill" Gilroy!

SVCU go 3-1 in last 4 Games..

Following  8-2 and 16 -1 victories last week over the Swan River Raiders and the Swan Valley Regional  Tigers respectively, SVCU went 1-1 this week. The Valley Outlaws handed SVCU their second loss of the season . Despite some fantastic goal tending by Mike "Smitty" Smith, stone hands and piss poor shooting were all that the team could muster. One bright spot in a relatively impotent offense was the play of SVCU rookie Wade "Booster" Cable. Scoring for the second night in a row, Cable is showing that he is more than just a worthy candidate for the Selke trophy. The curse has finally ended for Kevin "Stone Hands no more" Kopecky. Scoring in the 8-2 win over the Raiders, an exuberant Kopecky was recently seen basking in his glory, surrounded by wings and refreshments. "Ahhh Good times when your scoring!!!!" Playing a full 60 minutes in the 14-2 pay back routing of the Flyer's from Kenville, the tireless sophomore kept the streak alive by potting his second goal of the season. Relying on the advice of teammate and Fitness Guru Mark "The Rock" Munro Kopecky has tweaked his dry land training  regime and nutritional plan. The proof as they say , is in the pudding!
