Sept 8,2014(ISN) – Yesterday was a day off for the Shamrocks and the Six Nations Chiefs.

I was able to connect with and get some thoughts from Shamrocks

head coach Bob Heyes and his assistant defensive co-ordinator Jordan

Sundher. When asked his feeling about games 1 and 2 Bob Heyes said.

“The series has been exciting and eventful so far”. “Game one was a lot

of getting used to they play, the heat, and the arena”. “The Six Nations

Chiefs are probably the best outside shooting team in Canada and we

had to adjust to that”. Game one’s refereeing was good”. “No complaints

about that” Heyes said referencing the first games 7-4 loss. “Game two

was a battle”. “Defence for us was awesome as was the goaltending”

said Coach Heyes praising 3rd year goaltender Matt Flindell. “Some

questionable ref calls but they went both ways for the most part”. “There

was some question about the 30 second time clock and maybe it being

run incorrectly”. “We gutted out a huge win with clutch goals by Small

then Wardle on a great feed from Ranger for the O.T. winner”. “ We are

bruised and battered but we wouldn’t want it any other way.

I questioned coach Heyes about the differences between this team and

the team he played on in 1996 against Six Nations. “This team is very

similar”. “The difference was the 96 team was built over the years with a

few imports”. “Things have changed and we have that different mix of local

and imports but it is still the same”. “Playing with pride and passion for your

teammates”. “Playing for the fans is tough, you guys (the fans) love us win

or lose but we truly play for each other “BROTHERS IN ARMS”. “Every

year each team is different, we make the most of each year and build

lifelong relationships along the way.

I asked defensive Co-ordinator and Assistant Coach Jordan Sundher for

his thoughts on game 2 of the Mann Cup series.“ It was a great game”.

“We actually won the game twice, as the Six Nation’s score clock operator

did not run the clock fairly after we got up by a goal with a few minutes left

in regulation time”. “Our defence played outstanding and Flindell was lights

out in net”. Our offence is finding ways to the net and have started cashing

in on our chances”. “Our transition game is starting to find its legs”.

“Six Nations will have a new game plan for game 3 so we will have to find

ways to continue to improve”.
