Hurricanes Snatch 2 Points from The Ravens Nest with 8-6 Win
With Saturdays game behind in the books, the Canes looked forward to se what the can take away from the St.george Ravens Sunday after noon in the St.George arena during the towns busiest festival,
St.George has built another strong conpeitive team to compete yet again for the league Championship "Russle Cup". The Ravens staff has 14 - 20/21 year olds to help with their quest.
They a are a small, fast group of players that can make good plays, shoot and score. The team is made up of moostly local Onatrio players from the surrounding areas with a few Euro players.
The Raven came into the game thinking they would walk all over the Canes, like they di last year, out scoring the Canes 94 goals to 14. That wasnt the case on this festive day in
Sty.George. The Canes destroyed the Ravens in all the puck battles. The Hurricanes ar by fsr a bigger strong and faster team. The Canes management designed a team to beat up on the
Raven. After going through losses of 15-2, 10-0 etc , last season, the Canes decided they had enough. The Raven players clearly quit playing tough hock when they realized the Cane players are
Bigger, Stronger and Faster. Going into the 3rd period, up 7-3 on the Raven, the Canes started to get heavy legs. They took a couple of penalties which allowed the Ravens to come back and
score a couple of goals. But in the end the Ravens didnt have the depth to beat the short Benched Hurricanes. The Canes walked away with the second win against St.George in frachise
history with a 8-6 win. Ivan Bondaranko with 4 goals & 2 Assists(1st Star0, Griffin Sinden with 1G & 2 A(3rd star), Riley Ellis 2A, Noah Demlo 2A.
This win for the Canes sent out a shock wave to the league and hockey community around the world. Players from other leagues have been calling the past 24 hours wanting to see if there are
spots available on the club. Owner Ian Ellis has an open door policy for all players eliagible to play. We give everyone one a chance. We are most excited for the top rated players
from other leagues that have caleld wanting to join our club. We want to build a contenderthis year, and we started off our season opening week-end Break Waves, and Stealing from the
Nest. We are very pleased.

CANES DROWNED LAKERS 24-0
Sat Sept 15, 2018
Canes General Manager and Head Coach Jason Dopaco has assembled a team of mature and talented junior hockey players for the 2018/19 season. Sat night was the first test to see how the team
has gelled. The team is stronger than Gorllia Glue. 24-0 Win over the London Lakers at the Ice Park on Brookside in London Ontario.
The game long awaited for ....A redemption in the making from a game 2 years ago when London beat Tillsonburg 19-2. Coach Dopaco has never forgot and always will make sure he pays back whats
been given. Which seems to be the same old school way through the rest of the oragnization, Top down. The Canes went in to the game with only 11 skaters and 2 goalies. With a couple
of players still to arrive and on the IR. The Canes started the game off short handed verses London bench of 15 players.
New addition to the Canes is Ivan Bonaranko, 5'8'' 165pnd 21 year old from Russia. Ivan came to the Canes from Oklahoma City Blazer Jr.A Hockey Club, in the Western States Hockey
League. Ivan was fifth in scoring in the WSHL during the 2017/18 season with 126 points. Ivan scored a team record 9 goals & 6 assists in the game against the lakers.
Almost setting a league record. Ivan is an All round hockey player both on and off the ice. He comes from a good blood line of hockey in his family, and plays and acts as a professional. His
personality and excitment has made players around him step their game up to preform better. Home town GMHL Rookie of the Year Runner up in 2017/18 Griffin Sinden 6'2'' 185pnd(Tillsonburg)
scored a personal high 12 points, 5G & 7A. Louis Rebelle 6'1''200pnd(France) scored 5G & 1A. Captian Mitch Randel5'11'' 198pnd(Burford Ontario) scored 1G & 3A, Riley
Ellis6'1'' 195pnd(Woodstock) Scored 1G & 2A, Jacob Walter 6'4'' 245pnd(Sweden) scored 1G & 2A, and Dalton Brown(Washington State) who has made it 3 years in a row now, scored his first goal
of the season makin it a club record, scoring a goal in the first season game opener.
The Hurricanes played a seductive simple game of first date night hockey. The Canes keep the play very passive with crips clean puck movement. Always keeping London on their heels and
not prepared for the next play. Canes broke out of their end with simple break outs and easy entry offensive zone attacks that the Lakers could not defend. Lakers are carrying a young group of
players. Jeff Zehr is a great Coach to help develop these young players on the Lakers. He has a very positive attitude, and a styrong work eithic. He wont forget this loss.
