The West Coast Senior Hockey League finals is about to start with the third place Deer Lake Red Wings facing the regular season champions, the Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts.
Fans are in for a treat as we have the Wings, experienced and seasoned, looking to regain the elusive championship and the Cataracts, full of youth and looking to establish themselves as the best in the league.
With seasoned veterans such as Mark Robinson, Chris Peach and Darren Langdon, the Wings definitely have the experience edge. These players have all been there before, know how to win and have the heart to step up during the big game. The Cats have youth on their side, with the best 1-2 punch in goaltending with Yetman and Jewer.
The Cataracts pretty much owned the Wings throughout the regular season. However, this isn’t the regular season.
The Wings knocked off the defending champions in the Clarenville Caribous, taking the series in 6 games. The Bous play a similar style of hockey as the Cataracts and this may give Deer Lake a slight edge. Their game plan will be very similar and this may prove a major advantage in this series.
The Cats on come off a relatively easy series win over the Corner Brook Royals. Solid goaltending and a never-say-quit attitude showed what this team is capable off. Even while being down and all but out late in a few games, the Cataracts just kept coming and pulled off big wins.
While the outcome is yet to be determined, what is known, hockey fans are in for a treat.
