Re: Strathroy Rockets

My supposed informant said it was a done deal, much to my surprise. Especially given their awards banquet barely over, and the May try out camp a few weeks away. As you previously stated “silly season has begun.”

Strathroy Rockets

Question for Rocketgirl. Nasty rumour this am that the Rockets have cleaned house i.e. all coaching staff let go. Any truth to this or just trash talk?

Re: Strathroy vs LaSalle

As I stated in my previous post the behaviour during the last period and the overtime was disgusting and totally uncalled for under any circumstances. Unfortunately only one referee was on the ice which made it extremely difficult to properly officiate the game. However the language and constant ber...

Re: Strathroy vs LaSalle

Way to go Mr. referee from last evening! The Karma gods are with us, a one game suspension and rightfully so. Next time zip your lip.

Strathroy vs LaSalle

Congratulations and the award for most disgusting display of poor sportsmanship goes to the bench staff of LaSalle Vipers. How any referee allows that behaviour to go on without some appropriate sanction is beyond me. However, good on our Rockets they left it all on the ice last night. Kudos to Vinc...

Re: Leamington to take the Division?

Leamington came within a whisker of having their hat handed to them last night in Strathroy. I don’t think they are a lock on the division title by a long ways. Strathroy needs their #1 goal tender back between the pipes ASAP.

Anyone know what has happened to the goalie for Strathroy. Two games played with the number 2 goalie. Things could get mighty interesting.

Re: Strathroy

You definitely needed your heart medication last night in Strathroy. The Rockets threw everything they had and then some at Chatham. What I find very difficult to comprehend is how the referees tolerate the Chatham coach. His behaviour is disgusting, he should be tossed.

Re: Strathroy

Losing Emmet Pierce leaves a big hole in the Rocket’s forward lineup, especially given the fact they are finally gaining some ground in their division. Oh well, for the London Knights just the cost of doing business I guess.

Re: Where is Everyone?

Well the official obituary for the Strathroy Rockets has been written for this season. I am not sure it was ever much of a series. It was really helped to a complete disaster by those “two clowns in striped shirts .” My suggestion for those two would be to put them in the penalty box at the start of...

Re: Chatham 14 Strathroy 0...

The first senrtence of my post was in response to “which Rockets team was going to show up” . The final score would indicate the answer, but as I previously posted there was some glimmers of hope I.e the third period,. There is only one direction to go and that’s forward, fingers crossed.

Re: Chatham 14 Strathroy 0...

Well by the looks of the score the wrong team was on the ice. Nice to see the backup goalie got a workout and there were some good things going on during the game just not consistently. On the bright side no 14 to 0.

Re: Strathroy Rockets

We have been Rockets fans for many years, and I have to say about the last five to seven years it has slowly been deteriorating.

Strathroy Rockets

Well here we go yet again Rockets fans, another dismal outing in Komoka. Not sure what it’s going to take to right the ship but it's definitely taking on water. They seem to have completely gone off their game since the game against Lasalle, injuries aren’t helping.

Well Doug pray tell what you've been hearing, the info in Strathroy is at this point in time there is no "coach". They tried to sign one but the deal didn't materialize. You must know something we don't perhaps?
