Big Playoff W

Big Playoff W


The boys from Sackville rolled into the Arena tonight for an elimination game and refused to pack it in!!


El Capitain, Benjamin Lowther got the boys rolling with a goalscorers goal straight through the five hole making no mistake in tight!! After a fast paced hard hitting first period the score remained 1-0.


A quick reset got the boys back on track and it was Keats who capitalized on a partial break ripping one far side to extend the lead to two! 

The Sombrero wearing rookie, Glover, caught a Chebucto player cutting across the ice with his head down with a beauty hit, sending the puck the other way for a patented Rod & Tod 2 on 1 that saw Tricky Trelly use his whole body to get the puck in the net!! Benny Slim took matters into his own hands again, taking the puck from his own end all the way down, holding it on the 2 on 1 and ripping it low blocker to put the boys up 4!! 


The third Period didn’t go as planned as Chebucto came out firing on all cylinders to keep their season alive, capitalizing on a couple chances to make the game 4-2, but with resilient play, some big blocks, a lucky post or two and some breathtaking saves from Becca, the boys in orange rallied and held off the Atlantics before their captain buried an empty better full ice to secure his hat trick and ice the game!! 


Big shoutout to Chase and Colp, wearing a couple dirty hits without retaliation putting their pride aside and taking the powerplay!!


Big shoutout to Foston, who flew around the ice all night long, emptying the tank and getting to every loose puck in sight!! That’s the type of hockey that wins playoffs!!


Super proud of the boys tonight, first win since January and whynot save it for an elimination game to upset the 2 seed!! Colesy finally got rid of his fur coat, a couple more losses and it was his to keep forever!! Big game against Dartmouth Tuesday night!!

Back In The Win Column

The Boys in Orange hosted Chebucto tonight looking to get back on track after a reality check loss last week to Bedford!


Things got underway in the first with end to end action from both teams that saw Chebucto bury one to go up 1-0. 

After a quick breather and some great penalty killing it was The Captain, Ben Lowther who used his speed to his advantage taking a nice pass from Keats in the middle and making no mistake in tight! The Spark Plug Foston put his head down and drove the net on a 3 on 1 and hammered home a puck in tight off a nice dish from Chucky! 

The boys cooled off in the room and ate healthy snacks tonight instead of Fortune Cookies and kept their foot on the pedal when The Spark Plug "Mit" Foston buried home his second of the night from a loose puck in the slot!! (That's back to back two goal games!) After Chebucto buried one to make it 3-2, the boys didn't let momentum shift for too long as Colesy (who got his second and third assist of the year tonight) made sure the crowd didn't forget about his goal scoring abilities to go up 4-2!! The ice man Chucky Leblanc came out the next shift and buried one home upstairs where momma keeps the cookie jar to ice the game and solidify a much needed and much deserved win for the Flyers!! 

Big Shoutout to the spark plug line of Harvie Cole and Foston who did all the dirty work in the offensive end that goes un noticed on the stat sheet!

Big Shoutout to G-Money-Slick for standing on his head all night despite putting his trapper in the oven for 4 hours!! Rumour has it it was hotter in his hand during the game than the whole time it spent in the oven!! Must be a goalie thing!!


Revenge game against Bedford tomorrow at 4!! #LetsGoFlyers

Shootout at The Arena!

The boys from Sackville hosted Cole Harbour tonight in a high scoring affair that was fast paced and competitive through and through!


It was Trelly who got the flyers on the board early with his signature short side high around the net! CH buried one of their own but the fishbowl friends got the scuba gear on and keatsy buried home a beauty textbook pad pass from Benito that had Coach Brownie demonstrating the open textbook to the boys on the bench to make it 2-1! Some more lacklustre play in our own end let CH tie it up at 2 as #20 buried his second of the game!


The second period was one to forget for the boys in Orange who couldn’t get anything going, they let CH make it 3-2 but when things were looking bleek it was fan favorite rookie chucky Leblanc who dished out a beauty to Gatrell for his second of the night tying the game at 3!!


The intermission snacks was exactly what the boys needed to light a fire, as they came out buzzing that led to Colp Sosa burying home a nice pass from Keatsy!! After CH tied it up again it was the Goal Scoring Machine (GSM) Mason Cole who figured it was time to remind everyone in the rink what he can do with a puck as he ripped one home post and in low glove… what a shot!! The game went back and forth with big saves on both ends but it was the Captain, Benito who took a risky shot from his own end but buried it into the open net to secure the W for the good guys!!


Big shoutout to Chase Bowden who’s stepped his game up to whole new level the past month, making the right play every time and being a true stay at home defensemen!! 


Big shoutout to McCarthy and Lively for answering the call up and giving it all they had for the boys!!


Huge shoutout to the whole team, for really starting to turn things around when the season started off slow… Trusting your teammates and going to war together always pays off in the end!! 6-1-1 in their last 8 games!! Wow!! 


Big game against Tasa tomorrow morning!! 


Let’s go Flyers!!

The Win Train Stays On The Tracks!

The boys in Orange headed to the BMO 4 Pad yesterday and did not disappoint!!


Using their momentum from the previous game the Flyers got going early when rookie goal scoring sensation Mason Cole buried the only goal of the first!! 


After some lacklustre play to start the second period Bedford tied it up at 1, but Colesy got his feet moving on the penalty kill, going coast to coast, drawing a penalty and still ripping one post and in to take the lead back!! But with time winding down in the period the blues tied it up again!


Another much needed intermission and a dressing room stocked like grandmas pantry with snacks, the Flyers came out buzzing and Colesy buried his hat trick goal off a beauty dish from Benito!! The other fishbowl friend figured it was time to get himself on the score sheet, as Keats turned on the burners to wheel past a D man to an open puck and rip one low blocker!! What a shot!! After the CodFish Kade Romaine kicked one in on Becca to keep the game close, it was none other than the man of the night, Mason Cole to bury home his 4th of the game to seal the deal for the good guys!! Not many guys can say they’ve scored 4 in a game before, and no practice / gentleman’s league don’t count!! 


Big shoutout to Laba for flying around as a forward and switching back to defense when his name was called at the end of the game! 


Big shoutout to Dugout Dufour for getting rid of that white cage and matching the boys with the black ones!! (Harvie you’re next!!) 


Things are starting to clique in Sackville and the boys are looking to continue their streak of wins when Cole Harbour comes to the Arena Saturday night!!

Big Win For The Flyers

The boys from Sackville came out for a revenge game against Halifax, who beat them in the finals in PEI a week ago, and didn’t back down for a second!


The first period was fast paced, went back and forth, with both teams creating chances but unable to find the back of the net!


After a quick break, and a flip of the switch it was the Captain Benito, dawning his new fishing gear who walked a D man and made no mistake in close!! The Fishbowl Friends kept things going on the same shift as Benito found Keatsy out front in the slot for a rip to make it 2-0!! That’s all the boys needed to energize the bench, and Trelly made sure to bury home a rocket from the slot the next shift with a classic antlers celebration to top it off and right off the following face off, it was the goal scoring machine, Colesy who walked over the blue line and feathered one in low glove 5 seconds later!! Incredible!!


After a much needed intermission to cool the boys down, it was Benito burying home his 2 piece fish and chips off a beautiful dish from Keats on a 2 on 1 to keep the momentum flowing!! But the boys weren’t done there as Foz got in on the forecheck, caused a turnover which saw Chucky and Trell get the hot potato moving down low to go tic tac toe finished off beautifully by chucky on the wide open net!! Unreal!!


Big shoutout to Becca Vasilevski for another shutout!! (That’s 2 in the last 5 games) 


Big shoutout to the Cod Fish Kade Romaine on protecting the front of the net like his life depends on it!! 


What a bounce back game for the boys, big one this afternoon against Bedford to keep the momentum going!! 


Let’s go Flyers!!!

Big W In The Home Opener

The Flyers hosted the Halifax Hawks in The Home Barn tonight and made sure there was no way they weren’t leaving with a win!!!


The first got under way with a bang, with Keats burying one home after a grind it out shift and a nice dish from Dugout Dufour and Benito!! Rookie Charlie Chucky Leblanc made no mistake on his breakaway off a beautiful dish from Bubs that fired the crowd up!! After a slight mistake that coughed up a goal, it was  Colper, another rookie, burying home his first bantam aa goal with a snipe from the slot off a beauty dish from Benito!! What an electric first period !!


A scoreless second period that saw an incredible diving slashing trip on a breakaway from Mittens and one of the greatest shifts ever taken by Mike Richards… correction Nathan Laba!!! What a shift!! Back check breakaway… wheel the puck in… back check and take it back… take it back in again!!!! Wow!!


The third was another battle that saw a tough back and forth game that led to a power play goal for Halifax… and with the game on Rookie Brickwalk Becca made her best Odell Beckham Jr football catch to ensure the Win for the hard nosed blue collar Sackville Flyers!!


Starting to look more and more like a hockey team everyday!! Gonna be a great year!!
