And potentially give the coach on some tips?
Do you work for the Sockeyes at all or are you just a loyal fan?
Just a fan. I was more pre-scouting for me to have some dirt to use against the Ice Hawk players...But it was a clean, well played game. I might not have any material for tomorrow. Although I saw the Sockeyes coach hanging out by Craig Bonner.
Good game tonight. Ice Hawks won 3-2.
Steelers opened the scoring and I really didn't see how it went in as I was tying my shoe up. A Grandview player was bringing down the RW and passed to the center and then they ended up to the right of the Hawks goalie. After that goal the Ice Hawks took over. Grandview got caught flat footed alot tonight and while Delta was killing a penalty a flubbed dumpout turned into a clear cut shorthanded break but the Steelers goalie came up with a nice blocker save. Delta then took over the play and tied it then drew a penalty and took a 2-1 lead on a shot from just above the right faceoff dot that was tipped with 5 seconds left in the penalty.
2nd period there was no scoring.
3rd saw a scrap in the first half of the period after Delta went up 3-1 on a shot that went bar and in. Didn't catch the names (forgot my pencil to take notes) but the Delta player got in an early shot that stung the Steeler then almost got the jersey up over the head. Win to the Ice Hawk. But the fight seemed to do more for Grandview as they started skating and getting after pucks and getting on the body a bit and it lead to getting the Ice Hawks running around in their own end, D coverage broke down and the Steelers set up a nice tap in passing play. Grandveiw had a beauty chance to tie with about 5mins to go on a breakaway but with the chippy ice the puck bounced and they never got a clean shot off.
#71 for Delta Cody Fidgett sure has a good set of wheels on him. He's 19 and from Richmond. Got an assist tonight
#15 for Delta Mike Simpson is BIG and only 16. He is listed at 6'4" and 200lbs. Protected the puck well and is a pick of the Kootenay Ice.
