SHAWVILLE — For the first time since anyone can remember, the Pontiacs will be having a Saturday night home game instead of on Friday, when the Crew from the 'Frew hits Shawville in this season's third game between this fan-favourite match up.
Coming off two spectacular comeback games, the ShawVegas Pontiacs regained their 3rd place position after a brief foray at 4th, with rock solid performances against the Gatineau Mustangs and the Ottawa Canadians. Renfrew's Timberwolves however, have slipped into 2nd after starting the season at the top. Looking for a third straight win, Vegas will be aiming to take some more points away from the Wolves to increase the distance between themselves and the bottom three teams in the EOJHL Valley division standings.
Always a potential barn-burner, games between these two clubs are anything but boring. If you like hockey and you're looking for something to do this Saturday night then the Shawville Arena is the place to be.
Renfrew fronts a team of big players who rely on brute force to move the puck down the ice, whereas the Pontiacs are a much more maneuverable and tactically proficient unit, and contests between these two clubs are always heated. The Crew has the tendency to tilt the sheet down on Vegas’ side with its weight, and it’s something to watch the Pontiacs skate their way uphill, around and past some of the Wolves benders and tripods.
The puck burns at 8pm, at the Shawville Arena and fans will be in for some top-shelf hockey when these two titans will tear up the ice as the Pontiacs charge towrds the trifecta.
