Big win tonight for the Kingston Voyageur’s–6-5 over the Cobourg Cougars…..here’s coach Mark Major..
“It’s huge–when you look at our division–if we don’t get these two points, Wellington and Stouffville could move ahead of us and were in 7th place so now we’ve maintained where we are in 5th place in the conference–if the play-offs were to start tomorrow we’d get these same Cobourg Cougars so it was a good statement game for us to show were able to play with a high tiered team like they are –they get a free pass to the RBC Cup but were saying hey, were in the mix too…. were in a division where Trenton, Whitby and Cobourg seemed to be running away with it but were saying, whoa, whoa, whoa–dont forget about us and this was a good statement game for us.”
With just over a month to go before the play-offs…Major likes what he see’s in the Red-White and Blue
“Ya, we’ve got a bunch of enthusiastic kids that just want to learn and work hard…and as a coach you sit back and enjoy being out on the ice with them in every practise because you know there going to give you everything they’ve got and when it comes to game time they give you more and that’s all you ask.”
