CU found themselves in a "Shoot out at the OK Corral" with the young gun Kenville Flyers last Wednesday evening. CU signed free wheelin defense men "Jazzy" Jeff Bartel from the recently eliminated SwanValley Stampeders, to a one game contract to help neutralize some of the youth and speed of the Flyers. The flashy Dman did not disappoint, with his countless end to end rushes, finishing the game with 4 goals and a whopping plus 9.
Brian "The Thrill" Gilroy continues his scoring rampage. scoring yet another hattie , and adding four helpers. Centering wingers Rob "Blogmeister" McDonald, and Jeremy " Skates" Gray, the line finished the evening with six goals, and an impressive plus 8. Shaking things up in the second frame, Craig "Move over Mateika" Zamzow, was penciled in down the middle between back checking Randy Mateika and fore checking Mark "Mini" Munro. Finding little to no room on the oppositions blue line, the "Kerr" like middle man managed to bang in a couple.
Three time first team all-star Mike "Smitty" Smith found himself on his knees more than a $20 hooker in a 7/11 parking lot on a Friday night. At the mercy of the Flyer brother combination of Darren and Danny Miller, the "Double D" rang the cookie jar on several occasions.
With Gilroy and Zamzow going for a combined 5 for 30 in defensive zone face offs, former "Master of the Blade" and current director of player personnel, Dave "The Slasher" Bettesworth had these comments. "Going into the stretch drive, our center men have got to be better on the draw. We have been in contact with the Roblin Hounds regarding the availability of former CU draw master Ryan "Cowboy" Keown, and are anxiously waiting for a reply."
CU finishes out the regular season with a Sunday night tilt against cross town rivals Swan River Raiders, and then the season finale Wednesday evening when they host the Minitonas Loggers.
