BLUE WARRIOR

Blue Warrior for tonight's game goes to the lone goal scorer, Tanis Lamoureux. Tanis came up big for the Furies tonight, putting them on the board in the third period. Tanis also registered some good scoring chances all throughout the game as well, but unfortunately, only the one hit the back of the net.

SHOUTOUT

Tonight's shoutout goes to the Oakville Hornets. The Oakville Hornets are a partner team of the Toronto Furies and were featured throughout tonight's game. They watched from the bench while the Furies warmed up, they even played a game during the first intermission. They were Toronto's loudest and proudest fans tonight. 

COMING UP NEXT

The Toronto Furies next suit up on Sunday, December 18th, at 1pm at the MasterCard Centre. The Furies play the second game in their back-to-back against the Calgary Inferno.
