FLYERS 5 HAWKS 3
The rough and tough – hack and whack Flyers, play a strong game and jump out to a early 4-0 first period lead and hang on for the W! All over the ice – the unstoppable Sammy “The Bull” Bonanno with the trick! Singles for Ryan O’Rourke and Jeff Morton(EN). Playing a very strong game for the Hawks was center Al Pyc with a 2 & 1 game! “Black” Jack Priaux narrowed the score to 4-3 with the goalie pulled. The Flyers made four trips to the sin bin and if not for the leniency of the referee’s, it should have been much more. Their PK excelled – killing a 5-3.
