Tycoons Show No Mercy on Young Sharks
May 28th, 2021
It's been a season that cannot end quick enough for the Scotiabank South China Sharks. Injuries from the first game of the season (Team Captain Jordan So) have put the Sharks behind the eight ball and it's been nothing but downhill since. With just a handful of games remaining on the season and eliminated from the playoffs, the team is playing with half of the 'Youth Squad' to fill the roster - a great opportunity for the future stars of the CIHL to show everyone that they should be drafted come next season.
As tough as the road has been for the Sharks, it has done nothing to slow down their feasting opponents as most evident in their recent loss 11-5 at the hands of the HKBN Hong Kong Tycoons. Just a few more games to go Sharks!
The Tycoons still have a slim chance of catching the first place Manulife Macau Aces as they sit back 3 points with 4 points still on the table. With the Aces playing the Sharks this week - seems almost certain that the Aces will lock up first place and a ticket into the finals.
Nicholas Weberg put up another hat trick along with 3 helpers for a six-point night. This gives him a thirteen point edge over teammate Lucas Eshleman for the CIHL leading scorer but three goals behind Aces Whitney Olsen for most goals. Both Nicholas and Whitney have two games left on the season - look for them to be at their best in the coming few weeks.
