What kind of savage Cup do we have this year. The two visiting teams show up with 12 players. The first game was already a blow out.
We had someone come on here and say the Vees were going to show up with these BIG signings and be ready to go. Well no Peat or any other players they had lined up to give all these snipers room.
I know they are first year teams but the Flyers are covering cost for this tournament and I bet were hoping for alittle better competion so fans would come out. Who is going to come watch blow outs. Players only had to commite for 3 or 4 games. They knew that when they signed. Maybe it will get better.

Make the Final 9 to 0 for Prince George.
So I wonder what the score will be tonight between the Flyers and the Vees?
I know this is their first year and you have to start somewhere but like another poster stated why not in the AA level. Get some playing experience see what it takes to get to the next step. This isn't helpimg anyone getting blowen out every night. And if you are going to enter AAA at least show up with more than 2 lines. The paying customers I'm sure aren't liking to see this.
Oh well see what tonight brings.

Tuesday night, the Prince George Mohawks experienced the winning side of a blowout.
In the second game of the Savage Cup, the Mohawks beat the Penticton Vees 9-0, outshooting the Vees 48-34.
In a game where both teams were short benched, three players stepped up and took over the second game of the tournament.
Prince George's line of Shaun Fomenoff, Tyler Brough and Joe Morgan combined for 17 points in the game. Fomenoff had four goals and one assist, Brough had two goals and four assists and Morgan scored once while earning six assists.
Both Prince George goalies shared the evening's shut out, as they split their play time right down the middle. Guy Walch started off the game, with Alex Wright taking over exactly halfway through the second period.
After the game, Morgan talked about the chemistry between Brough and himself and how the two have been playing together for many years. According to Morgan, they even play together on their recreational hockey team.
Game three of the Savage Cup takes place Thursday at 8 p.m. between the Pentiction Vees and the Fort St John Flyers.

Mohawks pummel Penticton in short-benched affairNo score for this post

Game 2 of the Savage Cup started out as a close one between the Prince George Mohawks and the Penticton Vees, but the Mohawks eventually shook off Tuesday’s loss to take a 9-0 win over the Vees on Wednesday.
The first period was end-to-end action as the Vees kept up with the Mohawks. With 3:38 left in the period, Shaun Fomenoff got the Mohawks on the board and former Fort St. John Flyer Tyler Brough made it 2-0 with 1:12 left.
It was a tough game for both benches as the Mohawks only had nine skaters and the Vees had 12. “We were pretty down coming into the game having nine guys as it was so our legs probably weren’t there completely. We just got into the dressing room after the first period and said we’ve played these guys all year so we know we could beat them,” explained Fomenoff.
Things clicked more for the Mohawks in the second period as Fomenoff netted two more goals with singles by Brent Williams and Brough for a 6-0 lead after two frames. Fomenoff scored his fourth goal of the night in the third. Goals by Joe Morgan and Williams added to the tally. “We were just trying to get through the game and hoping for the W, just needed to get some confidence going here because last night wasn’t too good,” said Fomenoff, adding that they definitely accomplished what they need to do scoring wise. “We’ll try to do it again, we’re going to have a bigger lineup next time playing the same team. We’re going to try to get all the lines going, the same we had tonight.”
The Mohawks outshot the Vees 48-34. Guy Walch started the night in net for the Mohawks with Alex Wright playing the last two periods. Vees player/coach Rob Dekock, who used to play for the Fort St. John Flyers, said they’re looking forward to better games throughout the week. “The game was tight the first period then opened up a bit as the legs got tired,” he explained, adding that they’ve had four players injured in the last two weeks. “We’re just going to try to play through the games and dig through.
Obviously it’s the first team that’s been put together out of the Okanagan in 16 years, so we’re just trying to put our best foot forward and keep the tradition going on year by year.” Bruce Corrigal was the Vees only goaltender as he is replacing an injured Dan MacDonald, their previous number one. Corrigal is actually a junior player. “He’s a very mature looking goaltender and I think he’s got a bright future,” said Dekock. “He’s got some good reaction time and a good goaltender all around and a big goalie.” Fomenoff, Brough and Morgan contributed on almost every goal of the night. “Me and Brough play in our rec league together…we know each other quite well and I’ve played with Shaun, our centreman for years too, he’s one of my good buddies,” explained Morgan. Morgan was familiar with many players on the ice on Wednesday as his brother, Geoffrey Morgan, plays for the Vees. “I’ve never really played against him, obviously my whole life, we’ve always played together all the way up to junior, so it was pretty neat to play him,” said Joe Morgan

penticton had no business being in this tourny in the first place and these blow out losses prove my point. Why come all the way to FSJ with an in eligible player and get hammerd on and get kicked out of the tourny? That doesn't make any sense to me. Same with the vees going to kenora... give me a break..
