Week 7 – Halfway Point
Halfway through the season and things are starting to tighten up. GOJOs big lead has dwindled after only recording 1 win over the past 2 weeks; and DERKO is right there with him tied with 30 points. ORV still has the best Total points over GOJO. Cordy is on a roll; after sitting in last after week 3, he’s only lost 1 game of his past 12.
THE PICK-UP: STOOS had a do-over after pulling a “Feaster” and selecting Bernier from LAK off of team Fulty. He then had a shot of Saskatoon Berry Cooler and selected Chris Terry from the Lac La Hache Jr. Tomahawks. Terry has recently been called up by Carolina now that the Tomahawks season is over.
The pick-up for this week also falls to STOOS. He has already been talking about grabbing Eric Staal, but likely settle for T-Man on the Microns.
PLAYER OF THE WEEK
This weeks honours fall on Sid the Kid who racked up an impressive 11 points for team Derko.
END OF AN ERA
I’d like to use this space to acknowledge and pay tribute to a dear friend of yours & mine that has been actively involved in Williams Lake Minor Hockey for many years, giving guidance to countless young men and women in their pursuit of the game we all love so much. I’ve had the great honour of coaching with and against this friend for many seasons, (as have many of you in the OFHL) and I am sure you would all agree that you have never witnessed anything but class and respect in your dealings with our dear friend.
Tonight, our friend was involved in his last game ever in the WLMHA, and it was only fitting that he went out a champion, helping to guide the Midget Grey Wolves to a 7-3 victory and first place in the Midget House Division.
I’m sure you will all join with me in saluting our friend and wishing the best in retirement…… Gentlemen, a toast to Ted Vint’s legendary, beat-up hockey clipboard! (and to you too, Vinny! I think Derko, Rolphy, EZ & Stoos would all agree that it’s been a pleasure.)
