SVCU Gain a Draw and a Win...

Helping out a depleted Action roster, SVCU  put 3 skaters on loan, in a game that resembled more of  an intra squad match than a regular season tilt. End to end action ended up deadlocked at 9 when the final buzzer  sounded.
 Surviving the trade deadline with the current roster in tack, Director of Player Personnel and former SVCU "Master of the Machete"  Dave "Dr. Death" Bettesworth, commented that it wasn't for lack of trying. "With our tender Mike "Smitty" Smith still day to day on  the Injury Reserve List, all of our energies and focus have been on securing the services of veteran pad stacker "Daring " Darren Fedorchuk for the cup run. We are no different than any other club in the league, we are always looking for that deal that will make us  better, but come on , seriously, who is going to give us anything but table scraps for a player like McDonald or Morden! We have had a lot of interest in veteran blue liner Blaine "Soup" Campbell, but rumors of the all star "D Man" enrolled in some anger management classes made it all but impossible to pull the trigger."

With sluggish attendance both in the bleachers and on the bench, Sunday night's match with cross town rival Swan River Raiders was unofficially dubbed "Bring your Son to the Rink" night. With no less than three father /son combinations on the game sheet, SVCU pulled out a hard fought 8-6 victory. Leading all scores with three, Jyles "Diamond in the Rough" Mateika , son of current soft handed, cherry pickin forward Randy "Lamp lighter" Mateika, was brilliant. The TSN turning point , courtesy of the impressive offspring ,was a one handed dangle with Raider D Man Chris "Wonderful" Woodward draped all over him.

Showing that the Old man can still find the twine, power forward Pat "Crusher" Morden gave  his youngest , Riley "The Grin" Morden  a clinic on shooting. "Everything to the net son, you just never know what will go in!"  Suiting up the third time this season for the parent club, Ryan "Abs" Cable injected an almost lifeless fore-check with some much needed speed and intensity. Rookie forward and father Wade "Booster" Cable looked on with that oh to familiar " The boy has the legs that once skated for the Hudson Bay Hunters back in the early 80's." Rounding out  the scoring for SVCU were Rob 'Blogmeister" McDonald with a pair, and Craig "Zdeno" Zamzow with the single.
Getting more comfortable with each game played, hired hand  Darren "Make mine a Double" Fedorchuk was solid between the pipes. Fedorchuk, whose glove hand was "Sweeter than a Georgia Peach", stymied Raider finesse forward Chris "Hands" Hunt all evening.  This win was especially sweet, as Fedorchuk donned the Raider green a mere two seasons ago.
