President's Update - January 13th, 2013

The Avonlea Arrows picked up two wins on the weekend to move a bit closer to first place. On Friday evening in Lumsden the Arrows scored the first four goals of the game and held off the Monarchs for a 4-3 victory. On Sunday afternoon in Avonlea, the Arrows defeated the first place Wynyard Monarchs 5-3 to move within two points of the Monarchs. On Friday night the Arrows got a pair of goals from Calder Neufeld in the first period and then Calvin Watson and Mike Miller scored to give the Arrows a 4-0 lead until the Monarchs scored with four seconds left in the second period on a goal by David Fisher. Lance Morrison would score Lumsden’s first shorthanded goal of the year early in the third and then with their goalie pulled Brady Aulie would score to make the final 4-3. Nathan Fischl stopped 10 shots in the first half of the game and Colin Munroe would stop 13 shots in the last half of the game for the Arrows. Will Hood continued his strong play in his rookie year stopping 33 shots in the Monarch’s net. Each team had three minor penalties. Jeff Harris was assessed an instigator penalty in the first period and that results in a one game suspension to be served in Friday’s game against Bethune. The Arrows would then host the first place Wynyard Monarchs on Sunday afternoon. Mike Anderson would get the Monarchs on the board first and that goal would be answered by Calder Neufeld with his third goal of the weekend. Matt Strueby would score later in the period and the Monarchs had a 2-1 lead going into the second period. The Arrows would then score three goals in the second period with two goals coming in the last minute of the period.
