FHL news: Bear bounces back with 9-4 win over BCS, Fraser River wins 5-3 over Serenity

Steve Dodge brings us all the highlights from the FHL

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.
