Classic game ending bench clearer between the Wexford Raiders and Barrie Colts of the Central Ontario Junior League in 1993
I remember watching this in Toronto on Scarborough Channel 10,where they carried Wexford Raiders Games from the late 1980's
The violence was so out of control that Channel 10 would institute a policy of not showing the fights.When a fight broke out,the cameras would go into the crowd,and play by play man Keith Marnoch would say "we do not show the fights"
That was a ridiculous policy to say the least.
Growing up in Scarborough I used to go to the games at Scarborough Arena Gardens.
Wexford had those legendary battles with Dan Camerons Henry Carr Crusaders.
Im sure ARKTOSHORSE remembers some of those legendary brawls between the two teams,and many others.
I believe the Barrie Wexford series was a challenge series,home and home set with proceeds going to charity to determine who the best junior A team was,as these two teams were number 1 in their leagues.
I used to work as a volunteer on these telecasts as statistician in the late 80's.
Nancy Xynos Newman and Kevin Quinn,started their careers at Cable 10 on the Raiders telecasts.
Ah the good old days indeed
