Bear bends but doesn’t break versus BCS as they score the last five goals of the contest to win going away, 9-4.
It’s not very often that a defenceman/centre combo dominates the game, but in a style reminiscent of Orr-Esposito, Salming-Sittler, Coffey-Gretzky or Enemark-Salmons, Cam “Cream” Graham and Justin “Sugar” Rasmussen once again led Bear to the honey pot.
In their latest escapade, “Cream” sparkled early with a hat trick and one assist before “Sugar” took over as his second of four ended up being the winner mid-way through the second half.
Pocketing a trio of apples thanks to pinpoint five-foot passes was Les “Knuckles” Nylen who is now tied for seventh in league scoring.
The lone sparkplugs for BCS, who are now 0-3 versus Bear, was Kevin “Nightrider” Hesslegrave, who scored a hatty as well as an own goal as Jordan “Big J” Johnson pitched in with a pair of assists.
Meanwhile, in Rink 2, Serenity suffered the same fate that they are getting known for as they let a first half lead dissolve with Fraser River overcoming a 2-1 deficit in the 5-3 final.
Doing all he could at both ends of the ice was the Builders Matt “The Punisher” Powell, who scored his first hat trick in two years from his rear-guard position.
Cueing the comeback for the Chevy Crew was Jason “Double J” Johnson who scored a pair and assisted on Shane “Tiger” Thon’s second of the season.
Finding the twine with what proved to be the winner thanks to a blast from the point was Rob “The Rock” Lentz as Kris “Haymaker” Hayman finally got off the Schneid with an unassisted end to end beauty.
