CANADIENS AND BRUINS EYE CHAMPIONSHIP

With one week remaining and a number of make up matches on the charts it will take some doing for the Red Wings and Rangers to make up ground on our two leaders.  Again last evening the two leading teams put in very consistent performances. The second place Bruins who were coincidently matched up with the Wings. They rested only two points behind at the beginning of the evening. After 8 results were recorded they are now chasing by a more daunting 16 points. It was a tremendously consistent performance by the Bruins with every player except #1 Matt Twiddy (holiday) winning at least one game and six of the eight players garnering the full amount.

That was the excitment in respect to the standings. The Canadiens with four wins of six matches look to be assured the top spot and will be next to impossible to catch. But it was the dual between the two last placed teams that left everyone shaking their heads. Four of the seven matches went the full distance and extraordinaily enough three of those four went overtime in the fifth. Zach Stevens just kept hanging in against the favoured Benoit Sampson, saved two match balls and pulled it out 13-11 for the Black Hawks. Dan Larter gritted his teeth and just overpowered Solange Sharkie to claim victory by an identical score line win. Newcomer Nick Farquharson claimed his first league victory, 12-10 in the fifth over Dylan Power. The final five gamer between the Leafs and Black Hawks certainly took the longest. This back and forth affair saw the younger (and maybe a touch fitter) Derek Gallant eek by the more experienced Bruce Johnson at the #3 spot.

It was a great week four. The last week of season is next Wednesday with finals and party the following week. Be sure to confirm your sign-up for Fall Session #2 starting November 8th.
