Manitoban: [Bisons mauled by Cougars]

The Bisons started this one dominating the Kittens. Kamerin Nault and Adam Henry scored 1st period goals to give the Herd a 2-0 lead heading to the intermission. They managed to amass the lead despite being shorthanded 3 times.

The Bisons started shorthanded in the 2nd as well, but the 2-0 lead lasted until 15 minutes into the 2nd period. Dasan Sydora got his 2nd start of the season and held the fort. But the 18 shots he faced made a goal inevitable. Both goals were scored by defencemen (Tyler King and Brennan Riddle). The 2nd goal sailed over Sydora's right shoulder from the blueline. Sometimes you see why goalies these days are over 6 feet tall.

So with the game tied heading to the 3rd period, the Bisons couldn't get a break. They were given 3 more penalties and were quite outraged over non-calls, such that one of the penalties called on them was a bench minor. In any event Zak Zborosky nothced himself a natural hat-trick to start the 3rd period to turn the game around. The Bisons launched some intense pressure of their own at the end but an empty net goal stopped the comeback.

Here's how they lined up:

MANITOBA

Goal:
34 Sydora (35 Spriggs)

Defence:
2 Henry 3 Christensen
23 Dwyer 11 Dyck
24 Lenchyschyn

Forwards:
9 Franko 28 Stovin 8 Bolton
29 Wasylak 15 Jameson 12 Zajak
22 Leipsic 10 Skoleski 4 Nault
18 Armour 14 Freeman 26 Leblanc
21 Brooks

Scratches:

25 Skrumeda 27 Doerksen 30 Brown

I believe that Brooks was injured early on and I only noticed him once.

Defence:

28 Peel 22 Eisler

20 Duperreault 17 Kosloski 19 Marr

Scratches:
4 Schacher 11 Odelein 18 Adams
21 Kreklewich 24 Hicks 29 Campbell
30 Holtby

Dawson MacAuley stopped 18 of 21 shots for the win, and Sydora stopped 34 of 39 in the loss. Kamerin Nault had two goals for the Herd.

The Bisons fall to 2-4-0, and the Banjocats jump to 2-3-1. The Bisons are away to MRU next weekend.

That illusory 4-0-0 start for the T-irds has come crashing down. The standings in the CW have tightened up considerably this weekend. Patrick Dea stopped just 19 of 27 shots for the T-irds and Matthew Greenfield stopped 29 of 31 for the win. Three Dinos scored two goals each (Mitch Cook, Bradley Schoonbaert, and Chris Rauckman).

The Monkeys scored with just 14 seconds left to force overtime, while on a PP and with an empty net. So two OTWs for the Apes gives them a somewhat deceptive 4-2-0 record. Kenny Cameron stopped 18 of 20 shots for the win, and Colin Cooper stopped 37 of 40 shots for the loss. Curtis Miske's winning goal was his second of the game.

Taran Kozun had 12 saves for his second consecutive shutout. Taz Burman stopped 55 of an incredible 59 shots for the loss. Garrett Hughson came on to play just over a minute and stopped two more. That's a lot of shots for the Hrny nes to allow. Levi Cable scored twice for the Mutts.

Every now and then there comes a story about the return of hockey to Newfoundland. Here's the latest!

When M.U.N. was known as the Beothucks they played local senior hockey until 1968-69 when they joined the AIAA (forerunner to the AUS). They returned to senior hockey in 1976-77 to 1978-79, and then were back to the AUAA (as it was then called) for three more seasons until folding the program.
