How do you spell 2020? Well, for the Carlyle Novice Cougars (Chris) it starts with a W.
On Jan. 4 the Cougars opened the regular season with a 16-13 win over Kipling.
It may be hard to believe with such a high scoring game that the defence wa at the forefront of the win, but it was. Leading the tight, and stingy D from the blue line were Griffin “Coast to Coast” Eaton and Nash “The Flash” Faber. The duo layed it all out on the line and both finished just a fight shy of a Gordie Howe hat trick .
In their hardest fought battle to date the offence kept rolling, and is leaving their opponents scratching their heads on how to stop it. Light and Puskas scored in bunches to keep their point streaks intact.
The boys came out of the Christmas break, laced up their work boots, packed their lunch pails and got to work. It wasn›t always pretty, but the guys backed one another up and picked up each others slack when needed.
Coaches Chris, Joey, and Jeff proved this wasn’t their first rodeo and that they’ve been down this road before. With well-orchestrated shift changes and line juggling, they had this nine-man unit running on all cylinders.
In my opinion, if you have a sweet tooth, then get to the rink because watching this team is SWEET.
See you at the rink sports fans!
