St. John's -

Ask anyone involved in senior hockey and they'll tell you the Southern Shore has the most passionate - sometimes a too fervent - fans in the province. This week, I had a chance to ask Breakers' forward Berrick Loughlin what it's like to play in front of what some have termed a rowdy bunch at the Southern Shore Arena. When you're winning they're the best, when you're losing, they're not so much, says Loughlin who's in his fourth year as a Breaker. Luckily for the Shore, they're winning and in fact are atop league standings with a 10-2-1 record. All the same, he contends attendance hasn't been the best thus far in the season. They say when we're winning they'll be out. Hopefully with the direction we're heading this year they'll be out soon. Loughlin spends a fair amount of time up the Shore, he even skates with former senior hockey great Andy Sullivan a couple of times a week. He's unbelievable, lauds Loughlin. He could still lace 'em up and play, no doubt at all. He's been asked more than once, but he has no interest. For more on Loughlin, make sure to pick up a copy of the Weekend Telegram.
