Popove, Lum join new council Fewer than 15% bother to visit the polls
BY PAUL J. HENDERSON firstname.lastname@example.org
hilliwack residents gave a thumbs up to the incumbents on city council Saturday as all four retained
their seats in the 2011 municipal election. Couns. Chuck Stam, Ken Huttema, Sue Attrill and Stewart McLean all received enough votes to land them in the top six among 20 who were vying for a council seat in the Nov. 19 provincewide vote. The two vacant seats were won by first-time candidates Ken Popove and Jason Lum, who finished second and third respectively. Mayor Sharon Gaetz ran uncontested and was acclaimed into her
second term. Fewer than 15 per cent of eligible voters cast a ballot, which can be attributed, at least in part, to the
fact that there was no race for the mayor’s seat. Out of 63,908 eligible voters, just 9,343 ballots were cast. Attrill, who finished fifth in voting, said she was delighted to be re-elected and was excited about the new team. However, she said she was disappointed with the voter turnout. “It is hard to feel validated when so few people care about a level of government that is in a position to make the biggest impact on
our day-to-day lives,” she told the Times via email, adding her thanks to those who did vote. Fo r h i s p a r t , Po p ov e, w h o received the second highest number of votes behind incumbent Stam, said he was “blown away” by the support. “We ran a pretty good campaign but I’m not the best public speaker,” Popove told the Times Monday. “I didn’t kill it at the candidates See COUNCIL, Page 10
Krahn top vote getter for trustees
WALK FOR PEACE LOUD & CLEAR
BY CORNELIA NAYLOR AND TYLER OLSEN chilliwacktimes.com
hilliwack residents have given most members of their fractious board of education another three years to work out differences. During municipal elections Saturday, voters re-elected five of six incumbents and only two newcomers, even though Chilliwack’s trustee ballot boasted the most candidates, 24, in the province. The newcomers, however, captured the most votes. Longtime Chilliwack school principal Walt Krahn topped the polls with 3,923 votes, followed by retired probation officer Barry Neufeld, who is no stranger to the board having served as a Chilliwack trustee for 15 years between 1993 and 2008.
More than 100 people joined the Walk for Peace against gangs, drugs and violence on Saturday. See more photos at www.chilliwacktimes.com.

Agassiz Mounties seized 2,500 marijuana plants worth more than half-a-million dollars from a barn located on a Lougheed Highway property Thursday morning.
olice raided a large marijuana grow operation in Agassiz Thursday morning and seized more than half a million dollars worth of pot. Agassiz RMCP, the Centralized Marihuana Enforcement Team, the Emergency Response Team and police dog handlers busted the grow op in the 5700 block of Lougheed Highway at around 10 a.m. Thursday morning. Mounties say the growop was located in a barn on the middle of the property. More than 2,500 marijuana plants were seized, along with growing equipment
Judge rules entry was legal
Police responded to shots fired and felt they needed to search home BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwack
he trial of a Chilliwack man and woman charged with a range of gun and drug offences will continue after a Supreme Court justice refused a defence lawyer’s plea to throw out evidence obtained during a search of one of the accused’s house. Thomas Borecky and Tracy Yeomans
each face three drug trafficking charges and 13 weapon and firearms offences stemming from their arrest on Feb. 29 after police responded to a report of shot’s being fired at a Patterson Road property. Citing a recent Supreme Court decision to overturn the conviction of a Salmon Arm-area man, Borecky and Yeoman’s lawyer Ken Beatch argued that the police erred when they searched Borecky’s home without a warrant following a report of shots fired. He said the case showed that police have a duty to explore alternatives to warrantless entry of homes that could be as effective in ensuring public safety. Beatch said the case illustrated that police officers breached the defendants’
charter rights. Federal prosecutor Sharon Steele, though, had argued that Mounties had a good reason to enter the house—that being to ensure that no one had been injured by the reported gunfire. “For the police to make a warrantless entry into the house, there must be an identifiable and defined public safety threat,” she said. That risk existed, said Steele. “There were no other options other than entry to the house to make sure any potential shooting victims were not still inside. “Merely checking around or checking with neighbours would not have been enough.” Justice Brian Joyce agreed. The trial will continue in January.

that included two large generators and an industrialsized air conditioner. The equipment was worth about $300,000, but the plants were even more valuable. “Initial estimates put the grow at being worth approximately $575,000,” said Const. Tracy Wolbeck. “Marijuana growers often cut several crops a year making this grow worth upwards of $2 million a year.” One man was arrested and police are recommending charges of production of a controlled substance and possession for the purpose of trafficking. - Staff

Neufeld captured 3,505 votes. Fourth-term trustee Silvia Dyck, who topped the polls in 2008, was first among the incumbents, followed by Martha Wiens, who will now begin her eighth term and 22nd year on the board. Rookie incumbents Louise Piper and Heather Maahs also recaptured their seats, as did outgoing board chair Doug McKay who edged out UFV student Dan Coulter by 384 votes to round out the board. The only incumbent who didn’t regain his or her seat was Darlene Wahlstrom, who garnered only 850 votes to finish 19th. Krahn and Neufeld both got the good news while collecting their election signs from the edges of Chilliwack roads. While Krahn said that he expected to be among the seven trustees elected, he said Monday that he was “delighted with the result.” “I am very, very prepared to work in a highly collaborative, transparent board, looking forward to working together hand-in-glove with everyone, including senior admin[istration], teaching staff and support staff.” Krahn said the district’s surplus should allow it to address issues of pressing concern. “We’ve got a great district

there is still faith in the abilities and the track record of the trustees who have been there. I know they all have the interests of students at heart and they all have different viewpoints and different strengths. “It’s going to be a challenge trying to implement what I think is best for students, but I’m looking forward to it.” Neufeld emphasized the need for trustees to unite behind policies after decisions have been made. “One trustee has no authority in themselves, it’s only when the board speaks as a group that it has any meaning,” he said. First board meeting The inaugural meeting of the new board is set for Dec. 6 at 7 p.m. at the school board office (8430 Cessna Drive). As per board policy, secretary treasurer Maureen Carradice will convene the first meeting and conduct the election of the board chair, who will then take over the meeting as the board elects the vice-chair, the BCSTA provincial councillor and alternate, and the BCPSEA representative and alternate. The first regular public board meeting is Dec. 13 at school board office at 7 p.m.

here is potential for conflict on the new Cultus Lake Park Board (CLPB) as three newcomers who were part of a slate join two incumbents that same slate wanted turfed.

Poll-by-poll results revealing
f residents of Greendale, Yarrow, Rosedale or Promontory Heights had their way, Chilliwack’s newly elected city council would look a little different than it does. Each of those communities chose council candidates among their top six who finished out of the running after the citywide municipal election numbers were tallied on Saturday. Ron Browne landed just out of council in seventh, Gerry Goosen finished 10th, Gord Kornelsen was 11th and Ron Wedel ended up down in 13th. But that doesn’t mean they weren’t loved in certain neighbourhoods. We don’t have a ward system in this city, nor do our many communities within Chilliwack have any legal standing as entities on their own. There is a near-jingoistic attitude among some residents of the many far flung areas of the city. But in reality, of course, Greendale, Rosedale and Yarrow are simply neighbourhoods within the city. But people do tend to vote where they live so the breakdown in the polls from the Saturday’s election showed some regional divergence from the citywide totals. In the end, voters across Chilli-
PAUL J. HENDERSON
Simply A Musing wack chose, in this order: Chuck Stam, Ken Popove, Jason Lum, Ken Huttema, Sue Attrill and Stewart McLean. But the poll-by-poll breakdown shows a micro-regional picture with some slightly different results that the also-rans might find interesting. For starters, Greendale picked Huttema first overall with Stam behind him by one vote. But Greendale residents also wanted one of their own in Gord Kornelsen. They would not have elected McLean. On the other side of the city, Rosedale voters would have also voted in one of their own in Gerry Goosen, also leaving out McLean (who finished in eighth in the poll at Rosedale elementary. Browne was seventh). Yarrow picked local boy Jason Lum first overall, but another Yarrowite, Ron Wedel, would have squeaked into the sixth seat. (McLean, once again, would have been left out.) Promontory voters chose Lum
as their number one for council, and Ron Browne was their fifth choice. (Again, you guessed it, McLean didn’t make the top six.) Of course, most voters in the city voted in the two polls each in Chilliwack proper and Sardis. Those polls were at Chilliwack middle school, Evergreen Hall, Sardis secondary and Watson elementary. The vote in Chilliwack proper, including results from advanced polls at city hall, as well as the Sardis vote at Sardis secondary and Watson elementary, chose the top six in this order: Stam, Popove, Lum, Attrill, Huttema, McLean. (The only difference between how the votes ended up in Chilliwack proper and Sardis with the overall result, was Attrill and Huttema finished in reverse order.) The most votes by any one candidate at any one poll was Stam’s 1,309 at Evergreen Hall, which was also more votes than nine other candidates received in total. The least votes anyone received at any poll? Rob Stelmaschuk’s four votes in Greendale. So they didn’t make it into the top six, and they aren’t going to be on city council, but at least Kornelsen, Goosen, Wedel and Browne earned a consolation prize in certain neighbourhoods.
t was said after the 2008 municipal election that Chilliwack had the third worst voter turnout in British Columbia. When preliminary numbers from the 2011 provincwide vote on Saturday came in, it was revealed on the CivicInfo BC website that Chilliwack’s 17.5 per cent turnout was second lowest only to Langford’s 14 per cent. Upon further examination of the numbers, it appears things were even worse in Chilliwack. CivicInfo BC had 53,402 as an estimated eligible voter number, which turned out to be an outdated stat. According to Chilliwack city hall, there were actually more like 63,908 eligible voter numbers. That means the 9,343 ballots cast amounted to just under 15 per cent. Still better than Langford, but not by much and downright abysmal when compared to a provincewide rate of 29.51 per cent or Abbotsford’s 39.54 per cent. When there is no race for the mayor’s seat, as there wasn’t on Saturday, voters tend to stay away. But there were only four incumbents running and 20 candidates looking to fill the six seats so there should have been some more interest. And the school district race should have brought out more voters given the divisions on that board. But in the end, all but one incumbent won his or her seat back on school board, and all four incumbents are back in at city hall. There are lots of reasons for low levels of civic engagement, but is the low voter turnout more about disinterest or, given the endorsement of incumbents, is it a lack of controversy. Is it apathy or acceptance? Hopefully for the city’s sake it’s more about the latter.

Keep the past in the past, let’s support our Chiefs Editor: I’ve been a loyal hockey fan in Chilliwack for over 20 years. I supported the Chiefs from day one and (reluctantly at first) embraced the Bruins when they arrived in 2006. Before the Chiefs left, they were averaging 3,000-plus fans per game which was leading the country in attendance. The Bruins arrived and they were mid-range for attendance in the WHL, and it wasn’t long before the fan base started to drop off, for reasons I won’t get into. The Bruins ownership decided to sell the team to Victoria and really treated the fans in Chilliwack poorly during the whole situation/ procedure. The only way that it was finally set in stone was a press conference in Victoria on April 20, 2011. I know this left a bitter taste in a lot of peoples’ mouths especially the ones that were guaranteed another WHL team would be in Chilliwack for the following season, it never materialized and most of us moved on. Fast forward five months. The legendary Chilliwack Chiefs franchise had returned by way of Quesnel. The Chiefs started off
Get out there and embrace the Chiefs, it’s a fantastic value and a lot of fun to watch, it would be a lot more fun if there were even 600 to 1,000 more fans in the rink. Chiefs fans were legendary in years past across the entire country. Let’s keep that legacy going! GO CHIEFS GO! Collin MacMillan Chilliwack www.chiefsfans.ca

very positively with over 3,000 fans at the first game which was a huge win over a RBC Cup contender in the Penticton Vees. Unfortunately, after that the fan support dropped off. In Chilliwack on the Nov. 17 we had 1,700 fans at the game and it was for the most part a fantastic game but the atmosphere left a little to be desired. What I want to know, is where did these fans go? If there are people bitter about hockey in Chilliwack, don’t take it out on the Chiefs by staying away from Prospera Centre. These kids and staff had nothing to do with what transpired last season. They are out
there working their butts off every day on the ice and off it. The BCHL is a fantastic league to watch, it’s a very open and exciting game. These kids aspire to go to the NHL just like the WHL kids do and plenty of them have, they just take a different route through the NCAA and CIS. The Chiefs have Harvey Smyl behind the bench again, a coach who in all his years in the league has never missed the playoffs or even had a team below .500. His teams are synonymous with hard work, passion and community service. He expects his players to be ambassadors for the league, the Chiefs and the community they play in.
Cricket reaching out to local schools Editor: I read with interest the letter from Connor Lovely (Chilliwack Times, Nov. 17) regarding sports at Sardis secondary. Last week I heard of a Toronto school banning balls from coming to school while parents, the media and governments around the world complain of childhood obesity problems. On the same page of Thursday’s paper was a letter from Paige Bogaerts discussing how “26 per cent of children between two and 17 are either overweight or obese
in Canada.��� Readers might be interested to know that I have sent emails to every secondary and middle school in Chilliwack offering free equipment, free coaching and a club for kids to move to after completion of school for Canada’s first national sport—cricket. I have received a response from Vedder middle and no others. While cricket is no longer the national sport of Canada (officially, lacrosse is), I still thought that teachers and parents would be interested in having a sport available to their kids at no cost to them, the school or teachers’ time. Yet I can’t give away my equipment and years of coaching experience. To Connor, I hope you keep working toward your dream of playing lacrosse on the school team.

News COUNCIL, from page 1 meetings. But I said what I needed to say. I’m a team player and I want Chilliwack to keep on progressing.” Popove said he is happy with the makeup of council, calling it a “great mix,” and he said he’s ready to get to work. Lum, who finished third overall, said Monday he thinks his campaign message about growing council engagement with the community resonated with voters. “I think we need to look at new
opportunities to engage the citizens of Chilliwack and I think it starts with education,” he said. “You have to start doing everything you can to educate people about the roles and responsibilities of municipal government.” McLean told the Times he was honoured voters elected him for a second term, and he said his reelection validates the work council had been doing in his first term. Huttema said the results showed that Chilliwack voters were happy with the work over the last term and said he looks forward to work-

ing with Lum and Popove. “The two new councillors bring a wealth of knowledge in regards to the downtown area and I look forward to dealing with the Task Force report with them in the new year,” he said via email. Stam said voter turnout can be interpreted in many ways, but the electorate has spoken. “Our agenda will be to find the balance between our insatiable wants/needs with our ability/willingness to pay as taxpayers,” he said via email.

BY HELEN VANDERBURG For Postmedia News
his one is for the ladies. One of the most common comments I get from women when it comes to changing their physique is “I don’t want to add bulk; I just want to ‘tone.’“ What does that really mean? Most people think that toning means getting more definition and firmer muscles without adding any size. But this is simply not possible. If you look up toning in an exercise physiology textbook, tone simply describes the state of the muscle. When a muscle is at rest, for example, it is in a state of partial contraction to be ready for action.The “tone” of the muscle is involuntary, so you can’t change it by lifting weights in a particular way. Unfortunately, people have taken “tone” to mean how defined a muscle appears. Women go to the gym to “tone up,” often fearing the idea of bulking up, while men go to the gym to “build.” But muscles gain size and strength when they’re required to do more than what they are used to doing on a daily basis. (Similarly, they’ll shrink and weaken if underused.) Muscle doesn’t turn to fat or vice versa. When you train a muscle, you can’t help but “build” it. The shape and appearance of your muscles are predetermined by genetics, along with factors such as gender, stature, body composition and fat storage, which give some individuals a more “defined” appearance. I was recently on an infomercial shoot where the most sought-after male fitness model was filming. When I asked what his training techniques were, he simply said “I was born this way.” That doesn’t mean we can’t change our body’s appearance—but the body doesn’t know how to “tone.”When a muscle is asked to work at a higher intensity, it will build. In essence, toning and building are the same thing. Becoming lean and building muscle requires making changes in our body composition through exercise (including lifting weights) and healthy eating, to see the muscle definition. So why be concerned about using the word “toning”? Because it leads to an underlying belief that we can “spot

reduce.” When you say you want to “tone your triceps,” you’re really saying you’d like to change the shape of that part of your body. And this is simply not possible. The only way to see muscle definition is
CHRISTA ROBY Now Practicing in Garrison Crossing
to exercise, including resistance training to develop strong muscles, and to reduce body fat so that you can see the muscle. (This is why body builders go on extreme diets before a competition—so the muscle is more visible.)
Here’s the tricky part of believing you can spot reduce.The body doesn’t discriminate between exercises for the arms or legs when it comes to decreasing body fat. It simply knows you are exercising. If you are eating a healthy diet and you are burning more calories than you are taking in, your body will reduce its stored fat—from wherever the body decides to take it and not necessarily the area you are targeting. So, let go of the idea that women tone and men build. Instead, change your perspective to focus on the whole body and on gaining muscle strength through resistance training, cardiovascular activity and a healthy, balanced diet. Ladies, don’t be afraid of heavy weights. They will increase your muscle mass and make you a better calorie burner. Both of these benefits are important: experts estimate the average person loses five to seven pounds of muscle tissue each decade of “Ladies, don’t be our adult lives. afraid of heavy In addition, we tend to gain weights. They fat as we grow will increase older due to the slowing of your muscle our metabolisms and usual mass and make decline in activity, making for a you a better double whamcalorie burner. “ my. And don’t worry about bulking up: ask any body builder—it takes a lot of hard work to bulk up, and it’s even more challenging for women as they don’t have as much of the hormone testosterone, which helps build muscle mass. One final note: stop the insanity of buying products that promise to tone, chisel or rip your abs, butt, thighs, arms or any other part of your body. It is a myth, and will only lead to disappointment.Take a healthy approach to exercise, eating and living. And lift those heavy weights—you’ll be amazed at the results. ◗ Helen Vanderburg, owner of Heavens Elevated Fitness and Yoga, is a renowned fitness trainer and international corporate wellness speaker: heavensfitness.com.

here is a great book by Bob Schwartz called I Run,Therefore I am - Nuts! (humankinetics.com).What is great about it is that anyone who has spent any time running will relate to the stories he tells.It’s like a Seinfeld episode for runners.I would argue non-runners should read it as well, so they can get a better understanding of what is going through a runner’s head. Many of these stories could easily relate to beginning exercisers, experienced exercisers and outdoor cyclists. Withthe fall/winter marathon season in full swing, I thought it would be good to discuss some of the mental challenges runners face during a race and their training. Many runners are chronically obsessive about their training and everything around it.Anything that throws them off their routine can cause some runners to be significantly affected before or during a race. While it’s true that to run a five-kilometre race, 10-K race, half marathon or full marathon, you need to put in a certain amount of training, the main obstacle that most runners need to overcome is a mental one. Running any distance is going to have pain associated with it.I’m not referring to physical pain that indicates an injury.It’s the pain associated with pushing yourself outside your comfort zone.The more runners do this during training, the more likely they’re to be successful during a race.A cer-
tain amount of pain is normal. Runners competing in races this time of the year have most likely put in time on the pavement and/or treadmill so that the race won’t be too physically draining.This doesn’t mean the race will be easy.But if you have put in your mileage each week, your body should be ready. Below you will find a couple common mental challenges you may encounter during the race and how to overcome them: Everyone around me seems to be going so much faster,maybe I should try and keep up? Ask yourself why you’re doing this.Are you running for you or to win your age group? For most, the accomplishment is simply finishing the race, so keeping up with others does not need to be a priority.If your goal is to finish in a certain time then you most likely know where you should be at each mile or kilometre.Place your focus on your pace.By the end of the race most of the people you think are going so fast may actually finish behind you. My legs are burning or they feel like they weigh 100 pounds.
Some people refer to this as“hitting the wall.”During a race many runners will experience this.This may mean walking for a couple of minutes.For others, this may be a sign that they’re pushing themselves too hard.For others, it’s simply one obstacle during a race that they need to fight through and when they do they will feel like they have their second wind.

Post earns council seat in quiet Agassiz election ✓ local
BY PAUL J. HENDERSON email@example.com
ome seats in Agassiz were shuffled, but District of Kent council looks pretty familiar after Saturday’s election. Mayor Lorne Fisher decided to run for council on Nov. 19, and did win a seat. And councillor John Van Laerhoven ran uncontested for Fisher’s spot in the top job and was acclaimed as mayor. Couns. Holger Schwichtenberg and Darcy Striker retained their seats on council, but
Coun. Ken Schwaerzle lost his seat as Duane Post took the fourth and final seat. Final results: Mayor John Van (acclaimed)

Facio gets old job back
BY PAUL J. HENDERSON firstname.lastname@example.org
Chilliwack judge allowed incumbent Harrison Hot Springs mayor Ken Becotte to stay in the election race after a financial disclosure controversy, but voters kept him out of village hall. Becotte was up against two former mayors, Leo Facio and John Allen, as well as two others, Leslie Ghezesan and Arnold Caruk. Facio won back the job of mayor on Saturday after losing the job to Becotte in the 2008 election. Allen finished third in the mayoral race. In October, council candidate Zoltan Kiss (who won a seat on Saturday) filed a court petition challenging the candidacy of Becotte, and council candidates David
Harris and Sonya Reyerse-Peters based on incomplete financial disclosure statements. That petition was rejected as the judge attributed the filings to sloppiness rather than deliberate deceit. Becotte had called the petition “frivolous.” Reyerse-Peters won a seat on council but incumbent Harris lost his seat.
Final results in Harrison Hot Springs: Mayor: Leo Facio 303, John Allen 181, Kenneth Becotte 158, Leslie Ghezesan 24, Arnold Caruk 20 Council (top four elected): Allan Jackson 345, Zoltan Kiss 302, Sonya Reyerse-Peters 298, Richard Shelley 284, Andrew Baziuk 269, Bob Perry 261, David Harris 237, Niek de Brouwer 205, Dave Kenyon 205.

Marshall, along with third Lisa Deputan, second Darren Jarvis and lead Janet Klebe were representing British Columbia at the national event. A pair of mid-week losses put Marshall and company in tough. But the Chilliwack curlers rallied late and finished Submitted photo

the event with a record of 8-5, tied with five other rinks for fourth place. Alas, only the top three teams made the playoffs, which left Marshall’s rink on the outside looking in as Saskatchewan—whom B.C. had beat 11-4 during round robin play— stole a point in an extra end to beat Alberta in the final. “We’re happy with where we ended up,” said Deputan Monday. “It would have been nice to make the playoffs but we’re happy with being up there. “We had a fantastic week, there were a couple really competitive teams,” she said. Klebe led the B.C. rink with a tournamentlong rate of 80 per cent, good for fourth-best among leads in the tournament. ◗ The Chilliwack Curling Club will host a reception for the returning rink this Friday at 8 p.m.

Highroad Academy’s Whitney Zylstra battles a pair of White Rock Christian Academy players at the net during the Senior A Girls Volleyball Fraser Valley Championship final at Highroad Wednesday. Highroad captured the gold and Zylstra was named tournament MVP.
Knights crowned champs Senior girls win volleyball gold at Fraser Valleys BY CORNELIA NAYLOR email@example.com
hilliwack’s Highroad Academy Knights punched their ticket to the provincial championships with a gold medal finish at the Senior A Girls Volleyball Fraser Valley Championships at Highrad this week. The girls took down White Rock Christian Academy in four sets (25-23, 25-13, 25-19 and 25-21) to win the banner Wednesday after beating Langley Christian in the semifinal Monday. The Knights dropped their first set in both matches, and the girls had to overcome a 2016 deficit against a scrappy White Rock side Wednesday to win the championship, but Highroad coach Larry Daley was never really worried about the final outcome.
“Most of the time it’s just their own mistakes,” he said of his team. “That’s what really kills them. It’s not like White Rock was really beating us up or anything.” It’s the first time the Knights have topped the Fraser Valley podium since 2008. Last year the team won the provincial championship but had to win a wildcard berth to get there. The team’s prospects at the B.C.s look promising again this year, with last year’s provincial tournament MVP Whitney Zylstra and all-stars Richelle Hylkema and Elina Caronni all still in the starting lineup. It’s really Daley that’s the newcomer—in the head coach’s chair anyway. He took over from longtime Highroad coach Duncan Harrison after the latter was hired as women’s head coach at Columbia Bible College in Abbotsford in March. Harrison had led the team to three of its five provincial banners. “For me it was more or less making sure that the program continued the way it’s been run,” said Daley of his reasons for taking on

Home proves friendly for Chiefs Big wins over Vernon and Westside clubs in front of hometown fans
BY TYLER OLSEN firstname.lastname@example.org
Chilliwack Westside Merritt Chilliwack Chilliwack Vernon
Two out of three ain’t bad. The Chilliwack Chiefs sandwiched a loss to the Merritt Centennials Friday with a pair of home victories over travelling Okanagan teams to continue their strong November. After beating the Vernon Vipers 4-3 Thursday for their fifth consecutive victory, the Chiefs streak ended Friday when they travelled up the Coquihalla to take on the no-longer-hapless Merritt Centennials. But they followed a 4-1 loss to the Cents with a 5-4 victory Saturday evening over the Westside Warriors. The wins were enough to garner an honourable mention in the Canadian Junior Hockey League’s weekly top-20 rankings. On Friday, the Centennials, opened the scoring after just 26 seconds of play. It was a disastrous opening Chilliwack was unable to fully overcome. After Merritt scored twice more in the second, Malcolm Gould got the Chiefs’ lone goal late in the middle frame to pull Chilliwack to within two. The Chiefs, however, failed to convert on a prime power play opportunity early in third period and couldn’t draw any closer. The Chiefs returned to the friendlier confines of Prospera Centre to host the Westside Warriors Saturday night. This time, the Chiefs managed the unique feat of scoring early and quickly falling behind on the scoreboard. Five minutes into the game, Gould took a perfect pass from Huisman and one-timed the puck
into the Warriors net. But the Warriors turned the tables at once, scoring twice in the next minute. A shorthanded Warriors goal a minute and a half after that again forced Chilliwack to try to overcome a two-goal deficit. But this time Harvey Smyl’s crew was up to the task. Alexandre Perron-Fontaine—who was victimized on an ill-timed pinch on the Warriors second goal—redeemed himself by scoring his first BCHL marker on the power play midway through the second. And the Chiefs tied it late in the period when Huisman pounced on a loose puck in front of the Warriors goal and banged it past netminder James Leonard before he could cover up. Westside took the lead again in the third on a similar scramble, before Spencer Graboski tied the game with his own garbage goal with a little more than five minutes left. It came down to overtime, where finally someone other than Trevor Hills (who, with three overtime goals this season, had been the only Chiefs player to score in extra time) scored for Chilliwack. With the two squads playing three-on-three in a second overtime period, Perron-Fontaine and Garrett Forster found themselves with a clear-cut two-on-none breakaway. Forster played the decoy as Perron-Fontaine took the puck to his backhand and lifted it over Leonard for the victory.

the head coaching job even though his daughters had already graduated. Daley started helping out in 2000, when his youngest daughter was in Grade 7 and playing on the senior team. For him, the key to the program’s success (with 10 provincial podium finishes in 14 years) is the focus on basics.
he Chilliwack Lunachicks defeated Langley United 2-0 in over-30 women’s soccer action Friday night. Playing in frigid temperatures, neither team was able to find the net in the first half, although Chilliwack hit a pair of posts in the opening 15 minutes.

Jessica Malinowski increased the Chilliwack lead when she took an Andrea Northcott through ball and found the twine. Lisa Hiemstra registered the shutout.
Christian. Will they be tough enough to knock Highroad off the top of the podium? It won’t be easy, according to Daley. “Definitely our girls have got at least a couple more gears that they can go,” he said. “There’s no doubt in my mind.”
“It’s a continuation of teaching the right fundamentals. . . . If we don’t pass the ball well, we don’t do well,” he said. Daley doesn’t know which team his Knights will face first at the provincials (in Prince George Dec. 1 to 3) but he expects stiff competition from Kelowna Christian and Richmond
