FIFE FLYERS 6 DYNAMOS 4 SATURDAY, 7th OCTOBER, 1972.
Report by Bernard Stocks for the Ice Hockey Herald No 41 -21 October1972
This should have been Lawrie Lovell's night. Newly arrived in a Flyers' jersey and given a great ovation
by the crowd, the former Racers' no 1 should have stolen the show. But somehow Lawrie, as he has so often done In the
past, managed to wtthdraw from the spotlight and provide the setting for one of his mates to grab the glory. This tIme it
was a young fella by the name of Norrie Boreham who stole the show. Revelling in the stream of silky passes provided by brothers
Lawrie and Les, the 'Rocket' demonstrated in no uncertain terms how he earned his nickname.
Fittingly Lawrie LovelL scored
the openIng goal for hIs new club,but,it was Boreham's speed on the left wing that really created the opening after slick
servIce from Les Lovell. Then Lawrie and Les combIned to let Boreham flash the red light. Hester picked one up at the other
end before the end of the first period and for most of the second McKay and his defence held Flyers at bay.
Relentless pressure told, however,and with just over a minute remaining, Boreham (agaIn) picked up a loose
puckfor a smart breakaway goal and Les Lovell sent Flyers to the dresIng room with a comfortable feeling under thelr belts.
third period opened wIth a goal by Lawrie Lovell and more FIfe pressure, climaxed by a snap goal from J. Taylor. Hereabouts
Dynamos were supposed to lie down and be massacred, but they came back off the ropes valiantly and goals by Stevenson and
McCain put them back in with a chance. Had they got another quick goal anything could have happened, but Flyers rallied and
although Hester did get one more, there was never any real danger of the points leaving the east coast.
