Flyers versus Hythe
Haven't been staying on top of the blog this week and I do apologize. The Flyers took on the Hythe Mustangs on Tuesday in Hythe. The first period was nice. Fast and physical and just the one goal a Luke Middleton backhander on a partial breakaway. Middleton was playing forward on the night and never looks out of place up front but he is such a good D man it seems like a bit of a waste. The highlight of the first period for me was when Jon Zacks called our radio station Moothe FM. The look on his face after he said it was hysterical, I laughed all the way through the commercial. The lisp crack he made didn't help. The second period the Flyers shifted gears and the Mustangs couldn't keep up. Arlo Hadland decided to take matters into his own hands firing rockets from the point like he thought he was Ray Bourque. A goal and 3 assists all came directly from Arlo putting shots on net. One of the assists should have been a goal but after Hadland hit the bar Paul Wiens was on hand to slot home the rebound. A 4 point period for Hadland, which he declared was his best offensive period of his life, gave the Flyers a 6 to 1 lead after 2. Four more goals in the third for the Flyers made it a 10 - 1 final. Kersey, Wiens, Loncan and Hadland leading the way. Two good fights late on as Tyler Loney went with Hythe tough guy Oakfold and Loney got the clear victory. Wiens later went with Kam Kyle, much to the chagrin of Luke Middleton who wanted a piece of Kyle himself, and despite Kyle landing a haymaker that Wiens shrugged off the split decision went to Wiens. Next up will be Friday at Fairview. Live on Moose FM at 8:15pm.
