Herd beats Mount Royal

September 16, 2011

HERD WINS EXHIBITION HOME OPENER


MOUNT ROYAL COUGARS 1
MANITOBA BISONS 3


As I post there is no game story posted and only the score is listed on the Bison Schedule. It seems that the CW teams are not even utilizing LeagueStat for the exhibition games. I was at the game and here is how they lined up:

Manitoba Bisons

Goal:
1 Caligiuri, 35 Deckert (3rd period)

Defence:
4 Schappert - 5 Crowley
3 Rumsey - 15 Mealy
2 Erb - 20 Lockerby

Forwards:
11 Hellyer - 18 DuVal - 9 Lowry
23 Dittmer - 16 Walker - 26 Macaulay
25 Prokop - 17 Benias - 21 Cowan
22 Bestland - 24 Davis - 6 Flynn

Scratches:
10 Rowinski (F), 12 Pawluk (F), 14 Lauder (F)
24 Bobbee (D), 27 Schmidt (D), 34 Friesen (G)

Mount Royal Cougars

Goal:
30 Cote (33 Flette)

Defence:
18 Haber - 15 Glass
26 Beech - 20 Tremerra
2 Moir - 5 Scott

Forwards:
7 S Muchalla - 11 V Muchalla - 16 Galbraith
12 Eskesen - 13 Geddes - 28 Knopf
24 Roberts - 27 Goss - 9 Brown
8 Turnbull - 22 MacDonald - 10 Barrett

The first period was all Bisons. They out-shot MRU 18-5 and also rang a couple off the posts. However, they could not score until Jered Walker notched a shorthanded goal, with assists to Blair Macaulay and Dane Crowley. There was a constant parade of cheap penalties which hampered the flow of the game.

The tight calls continued in the second period where it seemed all contact led to a PP. The shots were more even, at 9-7 for the Bisons. After being stymied in the opener, perhaps the Bisons felt snake-bit. Instead of launching a barrage of shots they sometimes got too cute and tried to deek instead of shoot in a couple of 2-on-1 situations. Anyhow, the Cougars never came close to scoring. The Herd led 1-0 after two.

Jesse Deckert replaced Joe Caligiuri in the Bison net to start the third period. Caligiuri stopped all 12 shots he faced on the night. It was hard to evaluate him because there were really not many tough saves amongst them.

The Bisons had the puck for most of the third period, except during the PPs. It took 10 minutes for Jeremy Schappert to score on a PP, with assists to Chris Benias and Matthew Lowry.

The only goal for the Cougars came after a referee's error. (They had two of them, also!) The Bisons had almost killed a penalty and the puck was coming out of their end. A Bison player was about to step through the opened gate to his bench when a Cougar gave him a cheap shot from behind. A scuffle ensued and in the end two Cougars got two minutes each and for the Bisons it was 2 minutes for Hellyer and 4 minutes for Crowley. However, the referees only put Crowley's 4 minutes on the board and deemed that the one penalty offset the two. Of course, since the Bisons got 6 minutes and the Cougars got 4, the net ought to have been 2 minutes of PP to the Cougars. As a result, the Cougars had a brief two man advantage during which they scored their only goal, by Vinny Muchalla with assists to the d-pair of Haber and Glass.

The Bisons outshot the Cougars 10-8 in the third period, and 37-20 on the night.

The Bisons have yet to play a CIS team but are now 4-2-0 in the pre-season. MRU falls to 3-1-0.

The rematch goes Saturday at 2:30 p.m. at the Max Bell Arena. Tickets are reduced for the weekend, only $5 a head. Hopefully the Bisons will trash Sask in the 1:00 p.m. homecoming football game so that I can catch some of the hockey as well.

OUT OF TOWN SCOREBOARD:


ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 1
NAIT OOKS 0


Neither the Alberta nor the NAIT sites have a game story nor summary posted. This Edmontown derby switches to the U of A Saturday as the Evil Monkeys seek a sweep of the cuddly little Stuffed Owls. The Monkeys are now 3-0-0 and the Ooks are 0-1-0.


CALGARY FLAMES 4
CALGARY DINOS 0

|> [CW Story] : [U of C Story] : [Boxscore]

The Phlegms were the winners of this Calgary derby. The LeagueStat summary was not operable during the game but I see that it was brought up this morning. The Dinos raised $20,000 through the game. In the Dinos' crowded goal, the game was split between returnees Kris Lazaruk and Dustin Butler.


BROCK BADGERS 5
SASKATCHEWAN HUSKIES 3

|> [BU Story]

This was the opener of a 3-team tournament in Regina. However, the information comes from the Brock site. There is nothing yet on the Regina nor the Sask. sites. After last year's season of uneven play, I was anxious to see what the Banjo-Mutts would look like this year. I know how week Brock looked when they faced the Bisons. Maybe they are better. Or maybe Sask never laid on the body. Anyhow, we'll see how the remaining round-robin games go Saturday and Sunday. Former Winnipeg Blue Patrick Henderson scored for Brock. And Brandon native Kurt Jory (he who suffered a severe neck laceration 2 years ago) was the winning goaltender.

NEXT UP:

Sept 17th Mount Royal (ACAC) at Manitoba
Sept 17th Brock (OUA) at Regina (Regina Tournament)
Sept 17th Alberta at NAIT (ACAC)
Sept 18th Saskatchewan at Regina (Regina Tournament)

Sept 20th Calgary at Acadia (AUS)
Sept 21st Calgary at St. Francis-Xavier (AUS)
