Kemptville 73’s motored down County Road 43 Friday night to meet the Smiths Falls Bears and managed a tough 1 to zip win.

First frame closed out scoreless, with Bears out shooting 73’s by 13 to 9 and recorded 2 PIM in sin-bin, with Nick Bond standing tall for Kemptville.

Smiths Falls Bears’ Bradley Dobson was replaced with Kyle Renaud for the second go-around. Kemptville put the first marker on the board with man advantage as Frazee combined with Thousand across the line back to Jared Patterson on point for PPG at 4:26. Kemptville turned SOG around by 11 to 7 and put their special teams to work.

Last twenty miles was tough sledding for both squads and it became a netminder’s clinic, as 73’s Bond faced 27 SOG and Renaud 37 SOG for Bears.

Next home game is Wednesday, January, 10 when we battle the Pembroke Lumber Kings ….Hockey with EDGE.

Kemptville 73’s would have two tough games against the Carleton Place Canadians holding down first place. Wednesday night contest on 73’s home ice, the Canadians pounced on a garbage goal as Knoblauch, back to Girduckis and Geoff Kitt, squeeze it by Cooper Lukenda at 3:22. Kemptville responded when Beaton won the draw, directed it to Matthew Titus to blast it over Jeremie Forget’s shoulder at 8:02 for tie and only goal. At 10:38, a controversial goal, as slow whistle Hill banged at stopper’s glove to Haydn Hopkins for tie breaker to open the flood gates. Zachary Tupker, with helpers from B. Tupker and Pilotte at 11:14, for the insurance and two goal lead, as Kitt combination to Knoblauch and Justin Cmunt to pump in the rebound at 18:41.

Nick Bond replaced Lukenda for the second go-around to keep it a scoreless affair, with Carleton Place peppering 17 SOG to Kemptville 6, with matching sin-bin time. With man advantage for the Canadians, Pilotte over the line back to Townend, flip it to Ben Kupter for PPG and slide it under Bond’s pads at 11:41. Kemptville tried to get into the play, but just could not settle down the bouncing rubber in the final twenty, as the period closed out with Canadians 5 – 1 win. Carleton Place SOG 36, with Kemptville 23 and both squads receiving 7 PP attempts, with Canadians resulting in one PPG.

Kemptville 73’s would face Carleton Place Canadians Friday night challenge on their ice and held them at bay with another loss of 3 – 0. Opening period remained scoreless, with Nick Bond responding to 8 SOG and Michael Leach 4 SOG as both clubs posted sin-bin visits. The Canadians struck at 2:14 in the second, as Z. Tupker, with Pilotte, found Haydn Hopkins to beat Bond to end with 1 goal lead. Final twenty, with the 73’s on PP failure to keep attack focussed, Hopkins sprung Geoff Kitt for SHG at 10:02. At 18:05, Kemptville pulled their stopper for man advantage, but failed in the attempt, as Z. Tupker with Pilotte ahead to Travis Broughman to count for ENG.

Nick Bond kept 73’s in the game, as he faced 30 SOG to Canadian Leach 19, and Kemptville had 6 PP, with Carleton Place 4 PP without any results.

Two Kemptville girls are getting the chance to play with the Ottawa Senators this holiday season. Eleven-year-old Brooklyn McNeely and eight-year old Lily McNeely are two of fourteen other kids who have been selected to take part in the Ottawa Senators skills competition at the Canadian Tire Centre on New Years Eve.

The Senators Junior Skill Challenge is open to Novice, Atom, and Peewee minor hockey teams who are registered with Hockey Eastern Ontario, Ottawa District Womens Hockey Association, or Hockey Outaouais. Both girls play for Kemptville Storm, with Brooklyn playing at the Peewee level, and Lily playing on the Novice team.

To qualify, Brooklyn and Lily had to compete against other girls and boys of their age in a skills competition at the Canadian Tire Centre earlier this season. “In order to sign up, all you had to do was buy four tickets for one of the games,” says their father, Pat McNeely. “I thought it would be really cool for them to have the opportunity to play on a big rink.”

At the tryouts, the girls were put to the test with challenges that measured their agility, speed, and accuracy on the ice. Brooklyn says her favourite activity was the agility weave, where she had to handle a puck while skating in between pylons, while Lily preferred the obstacle course. The McNeelys did not expect the girls to make it through the try outs, and when they got the emails that they had both been chosen to skate with the Sens, the whole family was over the moon.  “[The girl’s] feet haven’t touched the ground since they got the news,” says their Grandfather, Gary Blake.

The girls will be competing alongside the Ottawa Senators on December 31, either on Team Karlsson or Team Phaneuf. They will have the opportunity to meet the Sens and sit on the same bench as them, as they wait for their turn to skate. Brooklyn says she hopes to get the chance to meet Jean-Gabriel Pageau, who plays centre, like her. Lily is also hoping to meet her favourite player, Sens Captain, Erik Karlsson.

The whole family is looking forward to what is sure to be a special New Years Eve for all of them. Mother, Terri-Lynn McNeely, says it’s incredible to see her children skating on such a big rink. Brooklyn and Lily also appreciate the fact that they are going to be able to share the experience as sisters, and remember it for years to come. “As Brooklyn has said, it’s a once in a lifetime experience,” Pat says.

The Brockville Braves landed on 73’s home ice Sunday afternoon to slam them with a 6-1 slaughter. Braves opened with man advantage when Jefferson with McMahon set up Mike McArthur PPG across the middle to beat Cooper Lukenda at 8:09. Second was owned by Brockville with man advantage, as Zac McMahon pumped in PPG, assisted by Hill and Gilmour at 11:02.

Kemptville handed the win to Brockville with SOG 41 and Kemptville 26 and PP for Braves 3/5, 73’s 0/7. Special teams were non-existent, as the 73’s seemed discombobulated from defensive to offensive.

Special afternoon for Royal LePage Team Toy Mountain Drive, as the players and fans showed their support with toys and donations ,as the special trailer made its way around the rink. The Salvation Army performed carols and hosted the national anthem ceremonies for this special day.

Jeremy Quesnel stroked his hat-trick after Hebert, with Poirier, assisted with a break-out play at 15:48. The hurting stopped when McRae and Sandlands gave it to Ethan Mulhearn to bang it home at 19:24. SOG were even at 34 and PP Colts 3/6 with 73’s 0/1.

Still on the road on Friday, the boys travelled to Hawkesbury to clip their wings 5-2. First frame, Kemptville drew first blood at 5:15, when John Beaton, with helpers from Bertrand and Thousand, blew it by Peter Brooks. Hawkesbury returned the favour when Alec Beaudin – Tougas, assist from Kuhl, at 6:56 to even the score. Titus teamed up with Daskas across the line to top of circle to Eric Conley to gun it home at 9:50 for tie breaker. At 19:18, Ashton Fry, with helpers from Frazee and Meyer, for the go-ahead to make it 3 to 1 for 73’s.

Taylor and Thousand combined to John Beaton at 1:04 to rifle top shelf over Brooks’ shoulder to open second. David Jankowski PPG, assisted by Belec and Stevens, after the 73’s sin-bin visit at 13:39.

Hawksbury Hawks landed in Kemptville on Sunday to challenge the 73’s for yet another time, with Nick Bond facing past team mate Peter Brooks between the pipes at the other end. Both clubs played fast and furious, end to end action in the first without any results. Kemptville struck first, with man advantage, at 4:12 when MacDonald, with Cote, came off the line through the middle as Eric Conley buried it for a PPG. Smith, assisted by Fournier to David Jankowski at 12:51 to make it a one-one contest. Hawksbury moved ahead when Alec Beaudin-Tougas punched one into the mesh after being setup from Taillon from top of the circle at :27. Kemptville bounced back at 9:11, when Faith made a end to end charge up the half boards, with Titus on front door, across to Ashton Fry to force OT.

Five minute OT remained scoreless to initiate a shoot-out, with the Hawks going first. Fournier, then Joel Frazee, beat Brooks for the only goal. Smith and Fry were shut-down, then Jankowski was stoned by Bond to give Kemptville a 3-2 win. Hawkesbury out-gunned Kemptville 38 SOG to 28 and PP for Hawks 0/3 with 73’s 1/2.

Wednesday’s road game in Ottawa against Ottawa Junior Senators was a tough grinder, with the Kemptville 73’s starter, Cooper Lukenda, facing 37 shots, and his opposition, Connor Hicks, 19. First frame was wide open affair, remaining scoreless, with Ottawa peppering 14 SOG to Kemptville 6. Senators rifled one between the pipes at 3:36, when Denis and Brant found Finns Evans.

At 12:32, Chiwetin Blacksmith knocked down a clearing pass to find open space to put Ottawa ahead by two. With man advantage, Frazee and Titus combination through the middle so Ashton Fry could hammer it in to move 73’s one goal behind at 17:16. Kemptville pulled Lukenda at 17:16 and 19:38 without results. Nick Lalonde slammed the rubber into open net for EN with 3-1 victory. Ottawa were in control, but Kemptville never gave up,

Return match between Ottawa Junior Senators in Kemptville 73’s barn on Friday night could have been interesting, because of the close battle on Wednesday. Unfortunately, Ottawa had another plan in mind to discredit Kemptville by running up the numbers. Kemptville drew first blood at 4:36: Conley back to Hunter on point, through to Nicholas Domitrovic to pull the trigger. Blacksmith, with Roy, to setup Owen Guy on the door step at 8:19 for the tie. Darcy Walsh, with helpers from Smart and White at 13:44, for Senators tie breaker.

Vincent Robillard knocked down a clearing pass to beat Lukenda on short side at 2:46. Faith flying down wing, over the line to cycle back to Hunter and Matt Titus for his first goal this season at 4:08. Ottawa opened the flood gates at 7:51, when Nick Lalonde, assisted by Bisson and Guy, past the stopper. Ottawa, with man advantage, as Silas Mattawashish PPG, with helpers by Lalonde and Veilette at 9:50, to make it a 5-2 lead. Veilette with Boulrice would assist Darcy Walsh for his second of the game at 18:51 to add another goal to Ottawa lead 6-2.

Last twenty, both sides changed up their stoppers, with Nick Bond for 73’s and Connor Hicks for Junior Senators.

Senators capitalized with a man advantage, when Chiwetin Blacksmith buried some garbage after receiving helpers from Evans and White at 1:05 for PPG. Nick Lalonde would notch another goal, with assist from Guy and Brant, at 15:51. Undisciplined play put 73’s on the slab at 17:16 to allow Darcy Walsh PPG, with helpers from Robillard and Smart, to record his hat-trick.

This was a tough defeat, as the boys had to play chase the bouncing rubber from the second period until the slaughter was ended, giving Ottawa 9-2 win.

New line up takes time to gel, so don’t give up on your “Boys of Winter”, they’ll be back. We have to play our game and remember there is 60 minutes in a game.

Come on out and support your warriors on ice with next home game on Wednesday, November 24, at 7:30 pm to face Ottawa Junior Senators……Hockey with EDGE.

Hey sports fans, we met the Brockville Braves in our barn on Sunday night, with our previous captain in their lineup and some changes in our roster. We could use a win, with Nick Bond between the pipes and at the bottom of the standings.

Tyson Kirkby would draw first blood, with helpers from Hawkins and Holland, to put the Braves on the board at 0:27. Kemptville answered back with Faith back to Kiefer holding the line, ahead to Austin Fry from top of the circle to beat Nick Wiencek blocker side at 4:02.

Second go around was a see-saw battle, with Kemptville calming the bouncing rubber at 4:41 when the combination of Taillon with McGrath, back to point Jared Patterson, to rifle it by the stopper for the go ahead. Brockville quick response, with the tie from Phillipe Gilmour, assisted by Jefferson, at 5:23. Thousand punched the line over to Giguere, squeezing the boards to Austin Fry from the half circle blew it by Wiencek blocker over shoulder again to move Kemptville ahead at 6:59.

Throwing rocks is normally an activity that’s quite frowned upon by adults. Interestingly, this past weekend, every adult in attendance at the North Grenville Curling Club seemed to be more than delighted to watch women from around the world throw them with incredible power and accuracy at their ‘houses’.

Though another year of the Royal Lepage Women’s Fall Classic has come and gone, the fond memories created by one of the premier annual sporting events hosted in the area will linger for participants, volunteers, sponsors and curling fans.

As some of you may already know, the field of twenty-four teams for this event is always a diverse one with teams participating from across the globe. This year’s field was no different as there were two teams from Sweden and one from Russia. Canada is always well represented with teams from Manitoba, Quebec, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and across Ontario in this year’s field. For the first time in the history of the Classic, there was a team participating from west of Manitoba. Delta, British Columbia fielded a team this year making it a true coast-to-coast event.

The Fall Classic itself was a triple knockout format with eight teams advancing to the championship round on Sunday morning. Three teams were able to advance to the final from Friday night with three teams qualifying from Saturday morning and two more qualifying from Saturday night. Team Curtis from Newfoundland had to win three games on Saturday to make it to the final eight on Sunday morning.

Sunday was an intense day of curling for the final eight teams with some remarkable shot-making and teamwork on display for those lucky enough to be watching. One of the early favourites, Team Moiseeva from Russia lost in the quarterfinal to Team MacDiarmid from Dartmouth, Nova Scotia who also beat the impressive junior team Team Daniels from Delta, BC to advance to the final. Team Wrana from Sweden advanced to the final with a morning victory over a weary Team Curtis and then earned a long, closely fought win over (former Classic winners from 2014) Team Auld from Listowel, Ontario.

The final was an international affair as Canada in the form of Team MacDiarmid from Dartmouth, faced off with Sweden whose flag was carried by Team Wrana from Sundbyberg just north of the capital of Stockholm.

Co-chairs for the event Doreen O’Sullivan and Jim Dolan were thrilled with all aspects of this year’s event and wanted to make a point of thanking all volunteers, sponsors, fans and the teams for their part in making the event so successful.
