Sunday January 14th saw the Sport Corner Siam Hockey League turn into the second part of its season with the tenth set of games being played. The opening contest saw AWARE whitewash the Sukhumvit Spitfires 9-1, while Hertz defeated Expedia 5-2 in the match of the night.
AWARE is looking like the team to beat as we head towards the SHL championship on March 17th. Despite using three different goaltenders the team has gelled like no other. While other squads have been dogged by injuries or absences the Patrik Lundback-led AWARE squad just seems to find ways to win. And speedster Corry Day continues to play as if he’s continually dipping into the fountain of youth. Nearing 50, Corry skates like a player in his early twenties, using his speed to score and set-up a number of highlight reel goals. In this game, where he won Rolling Stone Pizza player-of-the-game honours, he scored once and had three helpers. Devin Michael also had a huge night for AWARE with two goals and two assists; Lundback added two goals and an assist; and Jouni Heinonen had four assists.
