Welcome to another exciting week of Penetang Kings hockey. We got off to a good start last weekend winning our home opener against the Huntsville Otters in front of a packed house. The evening started with the raising of the new championship banner for winning the 2013/14 Georgian Bay League, followed by many other pre-game festivities. Once the puck dropped your Kings were focused on playing a team game and with a big effort from everyone, we were able to come away with a 5-4 victory.
We didn't have much time rest between games as we were on the road Saturday to play the Orillia Terriers in their home opener. Our team had many ups and downs as we trailed the Terriers 3-1 after two periods. In the spirit of the game, we never gave up and with some veteran leadership, the King played hard till the final buzzer and skated away with a 5-3 win. This weekend the Kings are looking forward to hosting the Caledon Hawks on Friday and with a bit more rest between games, we will be traveling to Alliston on Sunday to renew our rivalry with the Hornets.
Yours in hockey,
KINGS WIN 2014 GEORGIAN BAY CHAMPIONSHIP
THANK YOU SCRUB
The Penetang JR C Kings Hockey Organization would at this time like to thank Ron Robillard (better known as Scrub) for his many years of service to our Hockey Club. Scrub has been our equipment manger for the past 20 years. He has taken many long bus trips, packed, loaded, unloaded and loaded up again a lot of equipment over the last 20 years, always making sure that every player had what they needed for the game. Scrub was fun to have around and you could always count on him to lighten the mood when the team was down (or even when we were winning). You had to watch what you said around him, as he was always quick with a wise crack for every situation. Scrub did countless hours of work behind the scenes, picking upsupplies, having the jerseys cleaned and many more tasks that were required of him. His dedication, commitment and professionalism to the team is unsurpassed and will be difficult to replace. His hard work, passion and dedication to both hockey and the Kings will be missed.
Just in case he doesn’t know, Ron has a lifetime pass to the King’s games and is always welcome on any road trip he may wish to join us on. We may even put him to work just to keep him in game shape in case we need to pull him out of retirement!
Best of Luck Scrubs
You will be missed.
