December 10, 2012, Nanaimo, BC (ISN) – The Nanaimo Clippers were in action on Sunday afternoon in their last home game of 2012 and they went out with a bang beating the Surrey Eagles 5-2.
In the first period, the Eagles beat goaltender Jayson Argue with a quick goal by Demico Hannoun and only 38 seconds in; the Clippers fired back from call-up with the Oceanside Generals Michael Fretz.
The Clippers continued from there in the second period to take the lead by Captain Trevor Fitzgerald and to add some insurance Brendan Forbes tallies one to make it 3-1.
In the third period the Eagles were looking for a comeback with a goal by Trevor Cameron, assisted by Brett Mulcahy. The Clippers were not going to let this happen, and at 10:30 Kyle Kramer received the pass from Dick and McNicholas to score a powerplay goal; to add insult to injury Michael McNicholas adds yet another.
The Naniamo Clippers take the game 5-2.
A big congratulations to Buccaneers player Garrett Dunlop and Oceanside Generals Michael Fretz for playing in the game. Garret said, “It was a great experience playing with a great hockey club.”
