Firefighter's vs. Sailors
FIREFIGHTERS vs. SAILORS
Goodbye to 2 Sailor workhorses!
Good Bye Fellas
One thing I would also like to mention:
Two of our player's played their last games last night as Sailors.
They are #6 Cam Freeman and your Captain # 68 Colin Streutker.
Both hit the overage limit, so it will be sad not to see them in a Sailor jersey next season.
Believe me when I say that this club was lucky to have these two gentlemen wearing the Sailor colours and you've both left a lasting impression for years to come in the dressing room! Cam your rink length rushes gave us thrills and a few grey hairs, and those hits were always timely! Colin, as Captain of the Sailors your strength and focus both on and off the ice were second to none, and your pep talks to the boys in the room were always timely and well thought out! Whomever replaces you as Captain next season has big skates to fill.
It was everyone's pleasure to know both of you, and good luck in your future careers!
Even with our Sailor season now officially over, looking back it had many good memories, a few gaffes and even a tear or two. Although I'm sure all the player's wanted to go further into the playoffs, it was a season of growth and excitement! Look out next year Niagara League...we're gonna be even better!!!
The entire team would like to thank all our fans who came to each home game, and to those who followed us on the road. Thanks to Head Coach Turberfield and Assistant Coach Mckeag for all their hard work and especially Equipment guy Jason Zelem for another awesome season of taking care of his team!!! To each and every Sponsor....Thank-you for your commitment to Junior hockey in Port Dover! Your sponsorship means the world to every one of us in the dressing room!
To our lobby volunteers, thank-you for donating your time each and every home game, without you we'd be lost on game days.
To our Media guys upstairs...Thanks for another great season of calls, cheers and the best music in the entire loop!!! You guys rocked it this season, sure hope your back next year!
Emma, a job well done this year, PointStreak can get a wee bit out of control at times, but you kept it all under control...Thanks!!!
Can't forget Dwight and Greg in the Timekeeper's box, you two are simply the best at what you do!!! Thanks guys!
Finally to the 3 amigos... John, Darrin and Jack....Thank-you for stepping up and making sure the boys had the best of everything! The Sailors are the only team that I know of that have their own coach bus for road games, and that was one sweet ride fellas!!!
Sit back and relax for a few days you guys...Before you know it next season will be around the corner, maybe the Sailor organization could host the Niagara loops All-Star game? That would be a feather in the cap of this organization for sure!!!
As for me, I'll periodically post on this page as needed.....
Till next season...later.
