Remember my idea to have the Cougars play a low scoring game against Dixie last night? Yeah, not so much. The Cougars would overcome some sieve-like goaltending in the first and second periods to overcome a 6-3 deficit to start the third period and win 7-6.
Adam Place scored a hat trick, the third being the eventual game winner, to power the Cougars to a dramatic come from behind victory. After giving up a 3-2 lead early in the second by allowing four straight goals (on eight shots...) the Cougars potted four straight even strength goals in the third. As usual, the players did their best to give everybody in the stands a serious case of heart failure throughout the contest. Thoroughly exciting as always!
It should also be noted that Matt Diminie has been recognized by the CCHL as the East Division Player of the Month for November! His nine goals and eleven assists in 12 games were tops in the division and good enough to earn him the distinction. It's nice to have a hometown boy, on a hometown team earn such a noteworthy honour. Congrats Matt! (Story here.)
Pssst, if you want some free tickets to a Cougars home game click "comment" below and leave a message about the Cougars with your e-mail address so I can contact you. I will remove the e-mail address from the message if you wish. I'm trying to stimulate some discussion here! Let me know what you think about the Cougars, the new rink, music between whistles etc. Anything! The team wants to know what you think!!
