What a scene it was all weekend as SCOHA-Nation ran wild on anyone that gave a care. Friday Night’s Junior Division Championship was nuttier than a squirrel turd as the game went into overtime before a winner was declared. Intermediate and Masters provided some additional drama as every player skated until their blades ran out. I feel sorry for the fans that thought the games would be on Cable 14 but unfortunately the games were blacked out in our region. Next time they won’t cheap out and buy some tickets.
JUNIOR DIVISION CHAMPIONSHIP
FLYERS 5 BRUINS 4 (OVERTIME) I couldn’t believe how many fans were in the stands for this one! What an atmosphere as the Flyers finished off a roller coaster ride of a season by winning the cup. To recap: 19 penalties called which caused a dramatic escalation of tension between the two clubs, a few game misconducts, 2 penalty shots, yes 2 penalty shots, and the person who won the $28.00 50/50 draw wasn’t around to claim their prize. Fans went home saying this was easily the craziest game they have ever witnessed. Fans paid for their seat but only needed the edge of it. Flyer’s captain Mike Haslam drove the bus and the horse, scoring 2 pivotal goals from long distance to help the cause. This guy lugged the mail a lot this season, a clear indication he will re-sign with the club in the off-season. Also hitting the game sheet was Kevin Wyatt, who scored the overtime winner, Ryan “orange” Popek and Dave “magic” Johnson. Bruins Dino LaPorta scored a hatty and drove the Bruins bus home after. Jeff Davis also replied for the B’s. Congrats to both teams for a great game that we won’t soon forget. Good luck with summer training and contract negotiations, see you next season! Personally, it was great following this division all year, great players on and off the ice.
