No Place At Home (Bowmanville 4, Cobourg 2)

Sorry, that's the best I could do.

Former Cougar, Adam Place did not suit up for the Eagles last night so he missed his opportunity to play in front of the home crowd he started the year with.  Reportedly, he missed the game with a bruised elbow.  Poor devil.

Scott Sandercock, a player who came back in the Place deal, did manage to have a good night against his former club, earning a goal and an assist in the game.  Sandercock just towers above everybody on the ice with an imposing 6'5" 235 pound frame - and he's only 18 years old!

When a team scores the first and last goal of a game there's usually a good chance that they'll get the win but that just wasn't the case for the Cougars last night.  Bowmanville would score four unanswered goals after Cobourg's opening tally and they just couldn't climb out of that hole.

The Cougars failed to get a win but they did get their money's worth for the officials last night.  All told, last night's officiating crew called a total of 36 infractions, resulting in 20 individual penalties served and a whopping 69 minutes in penalties.  Perhaps they purchased new whistles for the playoffs and wanted to break them in.  Needless to say, coaches on both sides of the ice were beside themselves.

Despite this onslaught of officiating there were only two powerplay goals scored during the entire game.  Weird stuff!

Cobourg was officially elminated from playoff contention with the loss and their next game will be at home to the Lindsay Muskies, who just might bring Matt Diminie and Brandon Couto along for the trip.  Come on out for the last home game of the year!
