Avalon win gold at the NewFoundLand Summer Games

It took a little longer then they would have liked, but the Avalon female ball hockey team captured gold at the NL Summer Games in CBS after a marathon game with the host team.

The teams were deadlocked at one goal apiece as they slogged through not one, but two overtime periods before a shot directed at the host goal careened off a defender and into the back of the net for Avalon’s golden goal. The game was played at the CBS Stadium in Kelligrews on Aug. 20.

Kelsey Shute picked up the win in goal for Avalon.

The gold medal victory capped an impressive tournament for Avalon. The lone goal scored by the host team in the final was the first one allowed by Avalon in five games.

They opened the tournament with a 3-0 victory over Western on Aug. 18, which was followed by a 2-0 defeat of St. John’s.

On Day 2 of the tournament, Avalon blanked Eastern 2-0 and Mount Pearl 5-0 to set up the final with a formidable host squad. They were also 4-0 heading into the final.

Members of the championship team are: Abigail Gambin (Dunville), Abigail Reynolds (Harbour Grace), Camryn Taylor (Bristol’s Hope), Dakota Sheppard (Harbour Grace), Emma Russell (Blaketown), Hillary Neville (Placentia), Kelsey Shute (Harbor Grace), Kristen Shute (Harbour Grace), Mackenzie Chipman (Spaniard’s Bay), Mackenzie Crane (Spaniard’s Bay), Madison Petten (Bay Roberts), Rhiannon Kelly (Victoria), Samantha Pike (Harbour Grace), Shailynn Snow (Clarke’s Beach), Shelby Batten (Bareneed) and Tyra Lannon (Placentia).

What a game!

After 60 minutes of back and forth action the Montreal Red Lite (#1 on the ballhockey.com Top 25 Ball Hockey Teams in North America)  have defeated the Newfoundland Blackhorse (#24) to win gold at the 2016 CBHA Canadian National Championships!

Montreal jumped to a 3-0 lead early in the game but the Blackhorse offense refused to back down. After scoring two consecutive goals to bring it back to 3-2 momentum seemed to be shifting into Newfoundlands favour. 

After the Red Lite scored to make it 4-2 a bad bounce off a Red Lite defender brought the Blackhorse back within one. The Blackhorse were not going to give up.

The last 6 minutes of the game saw both teams give it their all, countless opportunities to score and amazing goaltending at both ends of the floor. The Blackhorse pulled the goalie with the ball deep in the Red Lite zone with 30 seconds remaining in the game, but that was not enough. The Montreal Red Lite held on to win the game 4-3.

The winning team consists of Nelson Vargas-Dias, Yannick Labonte, Kevin Kucamarski, Danick Martel, Olivier Lavasseur, Mathieu Duguay, Matthew David, Marc Andrew Trudeau, Alexandre Perrault, Jonathan Daoust, Joel Provost-Blais, Steve Proulx, Simon Ghilarducci, Carl Ghilarducci, Jeffry Bradley, Yanik Jomphe, Martin Corbell, Mathieu Lebrun, Samuel Fortier, Paul Roy, Jeremy Paradis, Martin Frenchette, Samuel Beauchamp (G) & Christian Lantin (G).

The real action was in the second period as the two teams traded goals bringing it to a 2-2 tie half way through the period. Greg Marotta scored the game winning goal with 9:06 remaining in the 2nd period. It was Al Henderson with the insurance when he scored their 4th goal just 28 seconds later.

Excellent goaltending at both ends of the floor kept the ball out of the net for the rest of the game; Barrie C4 won the game 4-2.

Congratulations on bringing bronze back to Ontario!

The winning team is Chris Morrison, Jeff Courues, Mark Guergis, Travis Duhaime, Greg Marotta, Terry Roache, John Santes, Kevin Clarke, Peter Vietch, Shane Malhotra, Rob Leduc, Dave Flude, Stan Kamenski, Al Henderson, Aaron Huuston, Dan Mediros, Derek Wilson, Wade Linklater, Sean Kelly, Lee Couture, Aaron Campisano (G).

After two days of action in beautiful Richmond, BC the Montreal Red Lite remain the early favourites going 3-0 in the first two days of preliminary action. With a 13 goal differential teams are going to need to focus on both ends of the floor if they want a chance to pass the #1 team in North America and see gold this week! They are currently being leaded by Yannick Labonte (#23) who has 2 goals and 4 assists in the first 3 games.

The Edmonton Savages, Manitoba Selects, Newfoundland Blackhorse and Calgary Phantoms all have yet to lose a game as well as they chase down the Red Lite.

Meanwhile, Newfoundland Blackhorse, competing in the national men’s senior A event in Vancouver, played its first game late Monday — it was the last game of the opening day schedule — against the Vancouver Falcons.

The Blackhorse won bronze at last year’s Canadian championship in Ottawa, while the United claimed silver.

The 45-year-old Power, who replaces Shelley Callaghan of Ontario, who had bveen president the last four years, is the third Newfoundlander to hold the post. Roger Barnett was president from 1982 to 1983, while Gerry Crew was in the job between 1988 and 1990.

Novak Djokovic, Connor McDavid delight crowd during Rogers Cup ball hockey game

TORONTO — Naturally, the first time Novak Djokovic played hockey should take place in Canada.

That’s exactly what happened Sunday afternoon at Toronto’s Rogers Cup, when a host of NHLers played with some tennis players, including Canadian juniors Felix Auger Aliassime, Denis Shapovalov, Ben Sigouin and, of course, Djokovic, the top men's player in the world right now, in a friendly ball hockey game contested on the Aviva Centre’s Centre Court.

On the NHL side of things, Connor McDavid, Tyler Seguin and Jason Spezza participated along with Brayden Schenn, Zac Rinaldo, Ryan O'Reilly, Michael Del Zotto and Dominic Moore. Former NHLer and Sportsnet analyst Nick Kypreos also suited up.

Because it was family weekend at the Rogers Cup, scores of children were in the stands for the game. And while this is technically a tennis tournament, the majority of them were itching to see the Edmonton Oilers’ young superstar, who received a loud cheer when he stepped onto the court. The other big cheer went to Djokovic, who came onto the “ice” shortly after the others and warmed up by taking some penalty shots, much to the delight of the crowd.

Harjun Dhaliwal takes ball hockey skills to Europe for Experience of a lifetime

For Harjun Dhaliwal, visiting the Czech Republic was the trip of a lifetime.

But throw in a gold medal victory at the Plzen Challenge Cup, an under-15 ball hockey tournament he played in with the West Coast Express, and the experience is one the Centennial secondary student will not soon forget.

“It was really fun,” said the Coquitlam athlete. “It was a really big experience for me. It helped me as a player and it was just a lot of fun.”

Dhaliwal is a member of the Tri-City Minor Ball Hockey Association, where he has made enough of a name for himself to get the attention of Express coach Gary Slavin. When Slavin asked if he was interested in joining the team in international competition, Dhaliwal did not hesitate to accept the invitation.

The Canadian squad, which is made up of players from across the province, made quick work of the competition during round-robin play. They shut out the Czech national team 10-0 before defeating the Slovakian Gajary Flames 4-1 and T.J. Blatna 4-0.

That set the stage for the finals against Plzen, which did not get off to a great start for the West Coast Express.

“They scored first,” said Dhaliwal. “We were all kind of put down.”

Undeterred, the Canadian squad was able to tie up the game and in the second half they found the go-ahead goal. But things stayed tight until the final buzzer sounded, with Plzen pulling their goalie and hemming in the Express in their own end. 

It took an empty-net goal from West Coast’s Kaiden Johnson of Burnaby to give the visitors all the insurance they needed to win the gold. 

“It was quite competitive,” said Dhaliwal. “They take ball hockey very seriously over there.”

For many of the players, the trip to the Czech Republic was their first time competing overseas, according to coach Slavin.

One of the big differences they faced, he noted, is the fact that in Europe ball hockey is played on a plastic tile floor, a big adjustment for Canadians accustomed to playing on concrete. 

“All of them are used to playing on arena concrete floors,” he said. “That ball moves faster on the tile, as well the shots come off the floor different.”

But thanks to strong scouting, he said he had a feeling his team would have success in Europe. 

“I knew going in to this tourney we had a strong team on the floor and off the floor,” said Slavin, who has made 10 trips to the Czech Republic for ball hockey tournaments. “Respect, dignity and focus was seen with every player. As many of my groups overseas have been from U16 right up to master men’s, this was the first U15 team taken over and I was very happy with the entire trip from both players and parents.” 

Slavin said the under-15 trip went so well plans are already being made for a repeat trip. Coaches, players and parents interested in learning more about it can contact him at gslavin31@gmail.com.
