CATS SHOULD BE PROUD AFTER WEEKEND
The Cataracts fought 'long and hard' in hopes of two victories this weekend. The battle was almost won on Saturday night in the team's game against the Caribous. But taking a hard-fought contested loss must have only given the Cats extra motivation to come away with an equally hard-fought victory by the Cats against Gander Flyers on Sunday afternoon!
GRIT AND CHARACTER
For both weekend contests the Cats battled their opponents with 6 regulars out of the line-up. All Stars Rodi Short and Andre Gill were injury scratches this weekend - Short nursing a groin injury from last weekend, and Gill out now for the last 6 games with a shoulder injury. D-Man Scott Cantwell also was on the sidelines with a rib injury.Fellow defencemen Samm Hounselll and new defenceman Klay Kachur both had work committments. Local speedster,(and valuable addition this season), Travis Champion was absent because of work as well...
Everyone else on the makeshift Cats roster stepped up this weekend to the delight and praise of the team's fans. With the Christmas break now upon the League the Cats expect to be fully healthy and ready to get into the thick of the second half race. GO CATS GO !!
