The term ‘fire-wagon hockey’ was developed back in the 1950’s and would accurately signify NHL hockey in the 1980’s when offense was at an all-time high.

Thursday night in the CCHL2, the league offered its own brand of the term as two games on schedule produced 26 goals, both needing extra time to decide a winner.  It won’t always be like this, but it can sure be exciting when it is.


The Ottawa West Golden Knights and Winchester Hawks met for the second time in 4 days and offered a game of fast paced offensive opportunities from start to finish.  The Golden Knights would be able to squeak out a 7-6 victory after receiving goals from six different skaters & clinching the winner in the shootout thanks to Jack Kilrea.  Shawn Sims registered a hat trick for the Hawks and also added an assist while Franco Gagnon (2 goals), and Michael Monette (1 goal) also found the net.  Hawks goaltender Brandon Lowry finished with 79 saves while Nick Mancina would be credited with the win for Ottawa West making 16 saves on 16 shots after replacing Cory Garrow.

In the other Thursday night match-up, we had the re-match of last years league final as the Stittsville Royals travelled to Casselman to take on the Vikings.  Troy Hass scored twice for the Royals and Neil Penner clinched the OT winner as the Royals out-gunned the Vikings on this night, taking the game 7-6 in OT.  Nicolas Brazeau was in the zone for Casselman as he buried 4 goals and added an assist, bringing his season totals to 5 goals and 9 points in just 3 games.  On the goaltending side of things, Ellis finished with 42 saves for Stittsville earning the win while De Meis had 32 saves in the losing effort for Casselman.
