Grinders get ‘er done again

Defending CVSSC floor hockey champs defeat EDS Trashers

Each time it looked like the Grinders might be in trouble, they made sure any doubts didn’t linger very long.

The defending Comox Valley Sports & Social Club floor hockey league champs let the rival EDS Trashers close the gap on a few occasions during the championship final at the Comox Recreation Centre last Tuesday. But the highest scoring squad in the 10-team league always had an answer, and that enviable firepower helped them prevail in a 13-10 victory.

The Puck-Offs finished in third place with a 12-4 victory over the Jets, while Shut Your Five-Hole grabbed fifth spot in a 13-11 win over Puck ‘N Clowns. The No Regretzkies ended up in seventh place with a 13-6 win over Puck Hunt and GWA-YEM took ninth overall after a 23-16 win over the Ugly Pucklings.

Registration is currently open for the winter league of floor hockey, as well as other CVSSC leagues in indoor soccer, volleyball and dodgeball. Teams, small groups and individuals can register online at www.comoxvalleysports.ca.
