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
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!!
