The New Westminster Salmonbellies are coming off a shocking end to 2011, when they fell in the WLA finals to the upstart Langley Thunder. Now in 2012, they have eight points, are 4-4 and are tied for second with Coquitlam.
“We’re struggling right now with our consistancy and ability to put teams away.” said general manager Dan Richardson “Discipline at key points of the game has to improve for us to succeed”
“There are six teams in the hunt makes for good stretch run teams have done a good job of recruiting drafting etc. Good for the league.”
The Bellies have long been one of the best teams in the WLA, and in all of Canada, and are once again a candidate to play for the Mann Cup.
“I would say Crowley Zywicki and Hawksbee have been very good for us.” continued Ricgardson. “TC Crompton has been a spark plug and Milan Gajic has been a pleasant surprise on defence getting better and better each game”
“Once we get Tom Johnson back from injury and get a couple other guys patched up in the second half we like the overall direction were going”
