73’s Hodgins post a SO against Grads and get shut-out by Braves

Poetry in motion...Bobby Dow slips through the defence to display his magical movement as he slides the rubber under a bewildered Grad's Ryan Coughlin by the sportsguy The Cumberland Grads were in the house on Tuesday night to meet the 73’s, with only one win in three meetings: they wanted serious payback. After Cumberland fails to spring their floater through the neutral zone, Kemptville’s Giguere puts it on Owen Guy’s tape, and he razzle dazzles the defence through his legs, off the goalie’s trapper, into the mesh at 9:55. Bobby Dow knocks down a clearing pass to glide over the Grads line with a display of his magic hands to confuse Coughlin, and slip it under his pads at 7:17 to close out first frame and out-gun their opponents 13 to 8. By the 73’s controlling the draws, they initiated offence and this continued into the second; but the Grads turned it up a notch. Cumberland concentrated on their high man to open the doors, but 73’s kept shutting down the line, and Hodgins stoned them as he faced 20 shots. At 4:28, with Dow on the attack through the middle, to Alex Rowe to launch it home for the insurance. Kemptville only managed

Indulge with healthier holiday habits this season (NC) Between late-night cocktail parties, end-of-year celebrations, and family feasts, bad habits abound during the holiday season. Feel good about enjoying the festivities with these tips for healthier holiday habits. 1. Consume treats wisely. A great trick for indulging in your favourite foods while lowering your calorie intake and increasing your nutrients is to eat a small meal before arriving at the event. Have a hearty soup or salad packed with veggies at home and then enjoy that slice of cake or fried app at the party. 2. Get moving. Instead of trying to fit hitting the gym every day into your busy schedule, use your holiday errands and events to help you squeeze in some exercise. Walk around the mall to find the perfect gift rather than shopping online, run around and play with the kids at your family get-together, and hunt for rustic holiday décor like branches and pinecones on a nature hike.

Time to buy locally

Christmas is the perfect time to support local businesses. Buy Christmas Presents from small local businesses and self-employed people. Buy from neighbours who sell online, from local artisans, bookstores, florists, jewellers, bakers and craftspeople. Enjoy a hot chocolate at a local small café. Keeping your money in the community means jobs, more money flowing through your neighbours’ businesses. That way, more local people will have a better Christmas.

3. Stop smoking. A recent survey shows the most common scenarios that trigger cravings are after having a meal, being with friends, and consuming alcohol — situations we often face during the holidays. “For help with all your triggers, try Combination Therapy,” advises family physician Dr. Richard Tytus. “The Nicoderm patch is now authorized by Health Canada for combined use with Nicorette fast-acting products to provide both ongoing support and support to control sudden cravings.” 4. Destress. Stress is more harmful than you think — chronic stress has been shown to affect the brain’s size, structure, and how it functions. So one of the best things you can do for your health is find ways to destress. Combine standard methods for unwinding — like exercise and meditation — with doing things that you love. Practice your hobby, spend more time outdoors, reconnect with friends — whatever makes you happy will also help you relax. 5. Make small changes. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither was the perfect workout routine. Instead of setting unrealistic goals that are impossible to achieve, create a healthier life by making simple changes that add up to a big difference. Park a little further away or get off one stop earlier on public transit for a burst of activity. Add a couple of vegetables to your pasta sauce. Get 15 more minutes of sleep. November 30, 2016


to penetrate Cumberland’s defence for nine shots, but capitalized on one to give them a 3-0 lead. Final twenty was a scrappy struggle for both squads, as the only marks on the sheet were PIM’s. Nicholas Hodgins robbed Grad’s Jared Leslie of a penalty shot at 9:05, which darkened the spirits of Cumberland. The 73’s PK was very strong and concise to keep the Grads off the board. Grads pulled their stopper at 4:06 for extra man without result, and both clubs recorded 10 SOG. Hodgins stood on his head, facing 38 shots and posting his first SO of the season with 3-0 win. Friday night in Brockville to face the tenacious Braves, the boys were without some of their key contributors. Initial frame was a see-saw affair with both having opportunities, and the sinbin was the only action happening. The Braves SOG 16-10. Second session: the Braves struck first at 11:45, when Moore and Jordan set-up Andrew Jarvis for a

PPG. Kemptville answered back within a minute, as Row off the half-wall over to Guy, back handed to Bobby Dow streaming over the middle to tie it at one. Brockville out-gun Kemptville 11 - 9. Third and final belonged to the Braves as the 73’s got caught up in a cycling maze, from Jordan and Jarvis to Devin Moore at 10:59 to pull ahead by one. Dustin Rinaldo, assisted by Hancock and Tonge, for Brockville’s insurance at 3:35. The 73’s yanked Hodgins for extra man at 2:44 and Braves picked up EN at 0:31, as Kemptville on attack, and Jordan corralled puck to Caruso, over to Devin Moore, who slapped it to clear into open net at other end. Brockville were 12-10 SOG and victorious 4 to 1. Come on out and experience Hockey with EDGE….great entertainment value.
