Lunar New Year

Lanterns brighten celebration

Music and dancing added to Saturday’s second annual Lantern Festival.

Visitors and participants alike celebrated Asian culture Saturday at Douglas Recreation Centre. With February being the month in which the Lunar New Year is celebrated, the second annual Lantern Festival was truly that: a festival. Adding extra flavour to the roughly 150 hand-painted cotton paper lanterns and umbrellas that hung off strings lining along the centre’s ceiling were music, dancing, and art. Orchids were also given away as door prizes. Langley Arts Council president Rosemary Wallace, who helped organize the festival, said there

was a larger turnout of visitors than there was last year. The majority of them plan to return in 2014. “People already want to come back [to next year’s event],” Wallace said. The intention of this festival is to invite the public out to take in the multicultural event that highlights the month of the Lunar New Year for many Asian cultures; it also provides the public with the chance to view a large temporary public art display.

Suspect adds bite to crime Among the other dangers of nightlife in Langley: drunk men who bite people. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Two Langley RCMP officers were bitten while trying to arrest an extremely intoxicated man outside a local nightclub early Saturday. Two officers were outside Jimmy Liks Nightclub, on 60th Avenue between 196th Street and the Langley Bypass, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the local RCMP. The Friday night crowd was clearing out and the officers were alerted by bouncers about an intoxicated man. The two officers spoke to the man briefly, but were then called away to prevent a fight breaking out elsewhere nearby. Once that crisis was dealt with, the officers found the man again. His friends said they would take care of him, but the man had other ideas. He broke free, fell face first to the pavement, then got up and ran away again. He sprinted towards the Langley Bypass, stripping off his shirt on his way. Officers followed him and found him a short distance away, inside the nearby McDonald’s, lying on the floor. Again the man’s friends tried to help, but he was not interested in their aid, Marks said. He ran outside and collapsed in the parking lot. Since he was unable to care for himself, the officers told the man he was under arrest. They picked him up off the pavement, but he began yelling and refused to cooperate. As they picked him up to put him in the police car, the man allegedly bit one officer in the ankle, and the other on the hand. One of the officers needed medical treatment for the bite to his hand, and the other did not need to go to the hospital. This is “an example of what our officers are often subjected to,” said Insp. Stephan Drolet. The 23-year-old Langley man is now facing the possibility of criminal charges, Marks said. If he had simply been arrested for intoxication, he would have spent the night in an RCMP cell and been released without charge in the morning when he was sober.

The public is invited to an annual prayer day hosted by local Christian churches.

Helping women and girls around the world is the goal of the annual World Day of Prayer. For 2013, World Day of Prayer takes place March 1. St. Joseph’s Parish, 20676 Fraser Hwy., is hosting the local event starting at 1 p.m. Everyone is invited to attend the event organized by the Women’s InterChurch Council of Canada. World Day of Prayer has its roots going back to 1861 when women in the United States and Canada started working together on missions issues around the world. In the late 1800s women in various denominations started holding days and weeks of prayer and by 1897 six denominations had started working together. World Day of Prayer is always the first Friday of March. Each year the service is written by Christian women in a different country. This year it comes from France. World Day of Prayer encourages people around the world to act to better the lives of women and girls with the organizations in different countries providing grants for the work. WICC grants have gone to things such as teaching women how to sustainably grow rice in Burundi and helping girls who were child soldiers to domestic abuse programs in Vancouver.

After more than three hours, the man was taken into custody, unharmed, and taken to hospital at about 8 p.m. The man was arrested outside of the home, and on Monday police were seeking a search warrant so they could look for the firearm inside, Marks said. The man’s identity is not being released.

Teacher faces trial

A former teacher is on trial for sexual assault alleged to have taken place 15 years ago. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

A Langley teacher’s trial for allegations of sexually assaulting a student will continue next month. The court case against Deborah Ralph, a former teacher at James Kennedy and Langley Fundamental Elementary schools, will resume on March 6 in

Surrey Provincial Court. Ralph was arrested in 2011 after the alleged victim came forward to police. The alleged assaults took place from 1998 to 2001, and involved a former student of Ralph’s. While he was not in her class at the time of the incidents, Langley RCMP said he was “elementary school aged,” at the time. Ralph taught at James Kennedy Elementary from 1987 to June 2010, and then at Langley Fundamental school until she was removed from her classroom when the allegations were made.

What’s Cooking at the Gateway of Hope? Angeli came to The Salvation Army Gateway of Hope because someone told her about the culinary arts program offered here. She was surprised that The Salvation Army had this type of program and after her initial interview with the instructor and taking a tour of the facility she was sure she wanted to be in the Cook’s Training class. Angeli has enjoyed being in the course and says “it’s like a big family, the people make it very special.” When asked what she would say to someone considering the course through the Gateway of Hope she says it’s a “busy kitchen, there’s a feeling of giving back, the people and the experience are great” and “it’s a special place here.”

“The goal of the program is to develop personal disciplines [for the student] and give them the hope of what they can accomplish, while equipping them to do it,” says Regimond Burks, the Director of Skills Training and Chef Instructor. Each student who successfully completes the program will graduate with a certificate which they can use to further their careers. They can then enter into an apprenticeship program that could lead to Red Seal certification. The hours that have been accumulated at the Gateway of Hope’s Cooks Training program can be used towards the apprenticeship training, effectively reducing the hours required to receive their government certificate. “Our goal is to help them find meaningful jobs in the community.”

See bullying everywhere

We see a police officer bit by an unruly night club patron. TransLink proudly proclaimed in a recent press release that the incidence of bus drivers getting beat up has declined “significantly” in past months – and yet the numbers remain appalling, and many are still forced to leave their jobs out of rational fear or because of the physical injuries they’ve already sustained. An entire public relations campaign had to be launched to keep drivers from running down flag persons directing traffic at road work projects. Indeed, the reckless behaviour of drivers seems to know no bounds anymore. Speeders and drunk drivers are Scan this joined on the highways and page with roadways by texters, tweeters, and talkers. A relatively new phenomenon is emerging, called “fire in the hole,” which involves pulling up to a drive-through window at a fast-food restaurant and ordering a drink, which is immediately thrown back to drench the (usually) young person working at the service window. The whole thing is often recorded and proudly uploaded to the internet for public consumption and “entertainment.” Even setting aside how dangerous all of this can be, most of us will recognize this as obviously childish behaviour. But it is behaviour that, for the most part, is being perpetrated by adults… or at least, by individuals of adult age. With all of this going on, how is it possible to be surprised that bullying and general disrespect are rampant among our youngsters? If we’re ever going to clean this mess up, we have to take the broom into our own homes, and sweep out our own closets. John F. Kennedy once noted that “civility is not a sign of weakness.” Conversely, bullying is most assuredly not a sign of strength – neither for children nor amongst adults. – B.G.

Bullying

Shortage of respect continues

Dear Editor, What happened to respect? What happened to personal space? Everyone has personal space that should be respected. With all the hype about bullying, why is it still going on? All the school does is talk about it, but it doesn’t follow up on it. Why don’t bullies hear the words “no,”

“stop,” or “leave me alone.” And when did it become acceptable to then physically attack? If you see someone being bullied, please, tell someone: a teacher, an adult, anyone. Why should it matter if people are thin, fat, short, or tall? We are all the same inside. Name withheld, Langley

LAPS rescue saves wayward dog

Dear Editor, Slashing rain and cutting wind rarely unbridle the enthusiasm with which my two little dogs, clad in their rain jackets, face their morning walk. Thursday was no exception. We hadn’t proceeded far when I saw him: he was obviously frightened, lost

and soaking wet. He was dashing here and there at 44th Avenue, which at this hour in the morning is wallto-wall traffic. One dash across the road would probably have been his last. I coaxed him with dog biscuits and soothing words. Soon I was able to get a leash around his neck.

Immediately I loved him. I suspected he was the result of an amorous encounter between a Basset hound and a pointer, due to his colour and appearance. Upon arriving home, I phoned the Langley Animal Protection Society, and within 20 minutes, a most pleasant officer arrived to pick him up. I phoned Monday morning and received the great news that the dog’s owners had gratefully retrieved him the previous night.

Recycling

Trash into treasure is theme of Langley contest

Turning junk into useful items is the theme of a new challenge.

Calling all creative people with an interest in enhancing the environment! An Upcycling Design Challenge is being issued by the Township of Langley in partnership with the Langley Arts Council, and interested participants are encouraged to start turning trash into treasure. “Upcycling involves tak-

ing waste material that would otherwise end up in our landfills and making it into something more valuable or useful,” said Township Solid Waste Coordinator and event organizer Krista Daniszewski. “Candy wrappers can be turned into a purse, old glass bottles may make a funky chandelier – the options are limited only by your own creativity.” Residents of both the Township and the City aged 14 and up are invited to take the challenge by submitting an original creative piece made from

at least 75 per cent found or recovered materials. Submissions must be received between April 8-13 and will be judged by the Langley Arts Council. Prizes will be awarded for the winning pieces. Upcycling Design Challenge pieces will be displayed to the public at the Art Council’s Gallery at 20550 Fraser Hwy. on Thursday, April 18, 6:30-9:30 p.m.. The challenge is being held in honour of Earth Day to highlight the importance of waste reduction and the value of re-using.

“The amount of waste thrown away each day is staggering. We are overusing our resources and filling up our landfills at an incredible rate,” Daniszewski said. “The Upcycling Design Challenge aims to remind people that, with a little creativity, what was old can be new again – perhaps even better than it once was. As well, the exhibit will showcase budding artists in Langley and bring the community out for an enjoyable evening.” For rules and entry information visit tol.ca/upcycling.

The POP pendant light by artist Mauricio Affonso demonstrates how Langley residents can show their creative skills, promote recycling, and celebrate Earth Day by making pieces for this spring’s Upcycling Design Challenge and exhibit.

Turning down the heat turned up people’s charitable instincts. An effort to get British Columbians to turn down the heat and don sweaters was a big success in terms of helping those in need. FortisBC, the natural gas company, worked with business improvement groups including the Downtown Langley Business Association on the combined energy conservation and charitable project. From Feb. 2 to 9, the organizations encouraged British Columbians to turn down the heat and donate warm clothing to those in need. More than 5,000 sweaters – double the goal of 2,500 – were collected by businesses and FortisBC workers. “We are overwhelmed by the positive response to ‘Turn Down the Heat Week’ and are appreciative of all of the businesses that turned down their thermostats and jumped in to collect over 350 coats and sweaters

in Langley,” said Teri James, director of BIABC and executive director of the Downtown Langley Business Association. “This campaign gave us an opportunity to save energy, give to charity and promote business during a typically slow time.” “BIABC and its members should be commended for their great effort,” said Doug Stout, vice president of energy solutions and external relations with FortisBC. “Equally, FortisBC employees stepped up across British Columbia to collect and donate sweaters, while asking customers to make small, but important, changes regarding energy use.” There were 16 business improvement areas involved in the project, from Vancouver Island to the Lower Mainland to the Interior. All donated clothing locally will be given to The Gateway of Hope, a Salvation Army-run homeless shelter located in Langley City which provides those that need it respite from the streets.

History

Memories of historic church mark unveiling

A new marker for the original site of the Milner Church was unveiled last week. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

One of Milner’s oldest residents reminisced about growing up in a farming community nestled in what was then a sleepy, agricultural Langley. Hugh Davis, who is the third generation to farm his family’s land in Milner, spoke Thursday at the dedication of a cairn to mark the original site of the Milner Church. The church still stands, but it was moved in 2006 to the nearby Milner Community Park, where the restored building hosts community meetings and events. Davis’s grandfather Henry arrived in the district before the church was built in the 1880s, and was one of the locals who helped see it constructed. An orphan from Ireland, Henry Davis was con-

vinced to move west by a friend, John Oliver, who would later become the B.C. premier known as “Honest John.” With land bought in what had once been the Hudson’s Bay Company Farm, Davis hoped to attract a wife from back east to join him. He had a girl in mind, but her family wouldn’t let her move to the distant wilderness of B.C. unless there was a church nearby. “So Henry rode around on horseback with several other pioneer families,” Davis said. “They rode as far as Matsqui and all the way to Mud Bay, collecting a litte over $110 to build Milner Church.” Davis recalled a childhood spent around the church, where Sunday sermons had to pause when a train noisily passed by. Originally, the church was dubbed Langley Prairie Methodist, and was then named Milner Methodist, and Milner United when the Methodists joined with other churches in 1925.

Township Councillors Charlie Fox (left) and Bob Long unveiled the new plaque at the Milner cairn. The location, at the corner of Glover Road and 216th Street, put it squarely in the midst of what was once a bustling village of Milner. However, over the years other communities overshadowed Milner, and the expansion of roads edged closer to the building. It was designated a heritage site in 1983, decomis-

sioned in 1994, and moved a dozen years later. The church is now cared for by the Milner Community Association, which restored the building. The cairn sits close to the busy intersection. It was ordered in 2011 to mark the 125th anniversary of the church. While Milner is today a

Crew of angels seeking partners to prevent hunger, cold

Sponsorship is needed to help pay for insurance for a truck being used to help others. by Troy Landreville

tlandreville@langleyadvance.com

Sponsors are being sought to help finance insurance for a new pickup truck that will be used to deliver items to less fortunate families in the community. Roughly $1,500 would pay for the truck’s annual insurance. To clarify information printed in the Feb. 21 edition of the Langley Advance [Angels on wheels]: the donation would not be a monthly necessity.

The truck, donated by B&B Contracting along with its corporate partners, will be used by Kim Snow, who, along with the army of volunteers she calls her “angels,” helps 175 less fortunate families receive items they desperately need. It will be shrink-wrapped with the words “Kim’s Angels” on it. There is room on the vehicle for any sponsors that want to advertise their businesses. Other sponsors donating $100 or more to the cause will be able to advertise their businesses through logos placed on the truck. Snow said the need for items is greater than ever, and her close friend Steve Stew and his company, B&B Contracting, are helping to make a difference. “Steve is a very generous man and

Devon Caldwell, Emma Mackie, Jake Guy were honoured for their video by Catherine Warren, a United Way of the Lower Mainland board member. have seen more and more things to bring on awareness of bullying. I feel it is making a difference because more children and teens I find are speaking out against bullying now more then ever,” Caldwell commented. Their video, created through the schools Backstreet Studios, deals with bullycide, people taking their own lives because of the bullying they’ve encountered. “We hope they see that bullying is a huge issue,” Caldwell said when asked what she hopes others get out of seeing their work. “With our video touching on the subject of bullycide, we see the bullying impacts people in huge, life-changing ways.” They would like people to feel impacted by their video in a way to make a change and bring more awareness to their communities. Bullying was the most prevalent topic addressed by youth in videos submitted to United Way, in fact, all three winning videos in the youth category focused on bullying. This started out as a class assignment to create a public service announce-

ment and was then entered in the contest. “The contest requires a video based on either bullying, child poverty, and senior isolation,” explained Caldwell. “We decided to go with bullying because we felt it was a good subject that should be talked about more. The young people knew they were up against plenty of competition. In all 192 adults and youth around the province submitted a total of 60 videos. They can be viewed at caretochange.ca.

Tell us what they’ve won…

Video makers Emma Mackie, Devon Caldwell, Emily Weldon and Jake Guy won a $300 Best Buy gift certificate and their video will be shown at the Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF) as part of the 2013 ReelYouth Film Festival Tour.

“We were happy to know that our film impacted the judges enough to nominate us,” she said. Caldwell added that people need to voice their opposition to bullying because it happens on so

many everyday situations and can’t be considered acceptable. “There has been a couple of incredible kids I have known personally who have left us way to early because of bullying,” she noted. “It is a topic that should not be treated gently. It makes a huge impact on kids at such early ages and it really needs to stop. I feel with more awareness on topics such as ‘bullycide’ we will be showing how huge of an impact bullying affects the victims personally along with everyone around them.” For these four young people, their way of voicing their opposition was with their video project. Caldwell said anyone can be part of anti-bullying efforts. “People need to realize that they don’t need to do something drastic to bring awareness or prevent bullying,” she said. “Things like wearing pink on anti-bully day or just being a friend to someone who has had a bad day could turn someone’s day around and one more person you’ve made aware is one more person to spread that awareness.”

How to create an instant last-minute RRSP portfolio Most last-minute RRSP contributions just go into cash. Don’t waste your time and money! Instead, put your cash to work in some well-chosen investments right away. Here’s how: At your bank or brokerage firm where you make your contribution, ask for their on-site advisor. The advisor will ask you a few questions about your investing objectives and risk tolerance, and will probably already have a slate of money market, fixed-income, and equity mutual funds that are appropriate for your circumstances. Select an asset allocation. As an example, I’ll use a mix of 30% safety/30% income/30% growth. Then populate that allocation with those fund choices. Simple. It’ll take only a few minutes, and your money will be working for you within 24 hours. Another option is to call up a mutual fund distributor that takes direct deposits from retail clients. Outfits like Phillips, Hager & North (a subsidiary of Royal Bank), CI Financial, AGF Management, Investor’s Group, or whoever, also have a qualified customer service people who will be happy to get you set up. These days, many investors choose to go the “do-it-yourself” route. That’s fine too, and not an obstacle to getting your returns flowing right away. But you’ll need to open an on-line investing account with your bank, and that can take a few days for the

approval to go ahead and invest. Once you have the approval, you can choose whatever mutual funds or exchange-traded funds (or stocks or bonds) you want, all from the comfort of your own home. But the do-it-yourselfer will need to choose an asset allocation on their own. Based on current capital market expectations and assuming a medium risk tolerance, I’m going with 5% cash, 40% fixed-income, and 55% equities. If you’re more aggressive, you can up the equity component at the expense of fixed income, leaving the cash allocation unchanged. If you’re more conservative, boost the fixed income and reduce the equity exposure. But do something! As for populating that allocation, consider holding the cash allocation in either guaranteed investment certificates (GICs) or term deposits, choosing a rate that is higher than current inflation, which is 1.5%. I don’t recommend money market funds, Treasury bills, Bankers’ Acceptances – the returns aren’t there, and the fees and commissions/ spreads just make it worse. Or you could just put the cash into a Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA), and use the RRSP only for fixed-income and equities. To get started in fixed-income, you might consider a diversified exchange-traded fund (ETF) or two. You might, for example, put all 40% into the iShares DEX Universe Bond Index Fund (TSX:

XBB), which covers both the Canadian government and corporate bond universe. Or you could put 20% into the iShares DEX All Corporate Bond Index Fund (TSX: XCB), and 20% into the iShares DEX All Government Bond Index Fund (TSX: XGB). For equities, I’d put half of the 55% sample allocation into the iShares S&P/TSX 60 Index Fund (TSX: XIU), and split the other half evenly between the iShares S&P 500 Index Fund (CAD-Hedged) (TSX: XSP) and the iShares S&P MSCI EAFE Fund (CAD Hedged) (TSX: XIN). That way you’ll have half in blue-chip Canadian equities and half in U.S. and international equities. If you want something sexier for the Canadian equity component, and less risk and more income, I really like the Dynamic Equity Income Fund Series A, fund code DYN029. Or half in that and half in the iShares S&P/TSX 60 Index Fund.

A Local Guide for Preschools, Childcare, Activities, Lessons, Education and more!

Helping boys become better readers Conventional wisdom has long intimated that girls are more adept at language arts and reading than boys of the same age. A recent study indicates there may be some merit to the assumption that boys tend to lag behind girls in reading. In order to bolster interest in books and reading comprehension, parents and educators can look to many successful literary series that tend to draw the attention of boys.

NEW HORIZON MONTESSORI SCHOOL APPLY NOW!

Boys and reading There are many theories as to why boys seem to eschew reading for other things. Some say that boys in general are always on the defensive, and reading -- which often calls to mind emotion and vulnerability -- is not something that boys would like to admit to doing. Furthermore, schools heavily push classics full of fictional characters as the mainstay of literary curricula. However, research points out that boys tend to gravitate toward nonfiction. Others argue that boys do not have enough male literary role models. The majority of adults involved in shaping boys’ interest in reading are women, and boys might not view picking up a good book as a masculine activity. Another theory as to why girls perform better on standardized reading tests revolves around brain function. Girls’ brains tend to be more verbally oriented, which can make reading skills easier. Boys are more visually oriented. It stands to reason that boys are more physically

restless than girls as well. Sitting for long periods of time reading can be challenging, even for an otherwise well-behaved male student. This was discovered as early as 1986 in an analysis of more than 100 studies by psychologist Warren Eaton and his colleagues at the University of Manitoba in Canada. The findings revealed that the average boy is more active than about 69 percent of girls.

Choosing reading materials Finding reading material to which boys will relate can be challenging. There is no blanket approach to finding the right books. Boys may need to be approached individually to find subject matter that will interest them and take them out of their comfort zones. Should schoolmates be viewed reading frequently, it may help other boys surpass their own reading fears and hurdles.

Ramblers claw past ’Cats to win Valley crown

One cracker of a Fraser Valley final thrilled fans Saturday at Langley Events Centre. by Troy Landreville sports@langleyadvance.com

Brookswood Bobcats forward Lindsay Wand dribbled the ball while being guarded by a Maple Ridge Rambler Jane Grisley during the Fraser Valley senior girls Triple A basketball title game Saturday at the Langley Events Centre. The Ramblers rallied in the fourth quarter to win 73-67. Troy Landreville/Langley Advance

It was a comeback for the ages Saturday at the Langley Events Centre. The Maple Ridge Ramblers senior girls basketball team marched Scan this all the way back from a doublepage with digit deficit in the fourth quarter to stun the Brookswood Bobcats 73-67 in the Fraser Valley Triple A final. Brookswood led 50-44 after three quarters and built that lead to 12 points with five minutes to go. With just three minutes remaining before the final buzzer, the ’Cats had a healthy 10-point lead before the Ramblers, led by 6’3” star and tournament MVP Kolbie Orum, stormed back to tie the game at 63 on an Orum basket. The Ramblers moved ahead 6563 with a little more than a minute to go and never relinquished the lead to win their first Fraser said. “Down 12 points Valley title in 57 years. with five minutes left Brookswood bench boss Neil and no time outs, it Brown said the loss is on him was looking pretty and his Bobcats co-coach Chris bleak.” Veale. Herman called a “We had a good lead with time out with a little three minutes to go and simply more than five minutes let the game slip through our remaining and told his hands,” Brown said. “As coachtroops that there was es, we have to take responsibiltime to come back, but ity for the loss as it was a total they needed good shots team collapse.” on every possession.

The Ramblers executed the plan and once the tide turned, the Bobcats started to play “a bit cautious,” in Herman’s opinion. With Brookswood forced to foul in the dying moments, the MRSS girls made their foul shots to close out the win. “Unbelievable, as they had beat us in our league game a few weeks ago 92-50,” Herman said. “It shows that anything can happen in a one-game scenario. Winning the Frasers is such an incredibly difficult task.” The league and zone is so good year in and year out that it is a major feat to simply qualify for the tournament, Herman said. This is only the third time (1946, 1956, 2013) in MRSS history that a Ramblers team has been able to win this tournament. Orum, who piled up 46 points on the Riverside Rapids the night before, finished the night with 40 points, 15 rebounds, six blocks,

and five steals. Tournament first all star Jane Grisley recorded 10 points to go along with five rebounds, and four blocks. Fellow Fraser Valley first allstar Kirby Marchand (seven points, three rebounds, four steals) and Devan Cousins (10 points, four rebounds) also had strong games for the Ramblers. Shara Marchand, who recorded four points and four rebounds, had a key steal in the last minute, forcing the Bobcats to take an intentional foul which gave the Ramblers a pair of free throws and the ball back. All four of Marchand’s points came at the free throw line in the final minute to clinch the win. Herman noted that the Ramblers two reserve players, Danica Severinski and Lindsay Charron, put in valuable minutes to rest starters and protect players in foul trouble. There were bright spots for the Bobcats, who battled to the very end against a very determined opponent. Lindsay Wand had 18 points to lead all Bobcats scorers, while Syd Williams had 17 and Jessie Brown and Marissa Van Noort had 12 each. Brown, Williams, and Van Noort received Fraser Valley allstar selections. The Ramblers, Bobcats, Riverside Rapids, and W.J. Mouat Hawks earned spots in the provincial championships from the Valley tourney. Fleetwood, Yale, Gleneagle, and MEI play wild card games tonight (Feb. 25) to decide the other two Valley seedings. In Fraser Valley regional play, the ’Cats beat North Surrey 9334 Feb. 18 and Yale 96-48 Feb. 19. Once in the championship round, the ’Cats earned a spot in the final with a 88-51 win over W.J. Mouat Friday at the LEC. The Ramblers defeated Chilliwack 75-35 Feb. 18 and MEI (from Abbotsford) 73-34 on Feb. 19. Both regional games were at Maple Ridge Secondary. In the championship round, Maple Ridge punched its ticket to the final by beating Riverside 73-57 Friday at the LEC.

Surging Kodiaks have flickering Flames on ropes

Aldergrove has taken over the series with three straight victories. by Troy Landreville sports@langleyadvance.com

After opening the Pacific Junior Hockey League playoffs with a promising 4-3 double overtime win over the Aldergrove Kodiaks, the Ridge Meadows Flames are flickering. Their upset victory on Feb. 18 has been followed by three consecutive losses to the Kodiaks, who now lead the best-of-seven quarter-final series three games to one. Saturday at Planet Ice Maple Ridge, the Kodiaks built a 5-0 first period lead, then scored the only three goals of the third frame in a lopsided 9-2 win over the Flames. Kodiaks assistant coach Rick Harkins said the Flames had been double-shifting their top two lines, and with back-to-back games, he knew that would take a toll against a well conditioned Aldergrove club. “We came out strong in that game, got a couple [of goals] early and just built off that,” Harkins added. The Kodiaks powerplay made the Flames pay. Four of their five goals during the opening period came with the man advantage.

Overall, Aldergrove scored on five of 10 powerplay opportunities. “We’re keeping it in perspective,” Flames coach Jamie Fiset said. “When they get four goals all in the first period and all on the powerplay… we dug ourselves that kind of a hole that’s hard to recover from. It was one of those nights where we had no bounces and everything seemed to go wrong.” The Flames will look to stave off elimination Wednesday (Feb. 27) at Aldergrove Arena. Opening puck drop is 7:15 p.m. “I think we’ll be fine on Wednesday,” Fiset said. “When you look at the first three games, game one if you look at the shots on goal [totals], it’s misleading. Game two we were happy with our performance. Game three – we should have won that game. We outshot them, we outplayed them, we hit posts, we had pucks laying in the crease, but we just couldn’t put it in the net. In game four, we took the first five penalties and it took us out of the game. It was hard to recover.” The most recent Kodiaks’ win was their most emphatic. Daniel Higgs with two, Spencer McHaffie, Ryan Veillet, and MacLean Hewitt staked Aldergrove to a 5-0 advantage after 20 minutes of play. The second period was the lone bright spot for the Flames, who outshot the visitors 12-6 and had

Aldergrove Kodiaks Adam Callegari followed the bouncing puck in front of Ridge Meadows Flames’ goaltender Wesley McLeod during game one of the best-of-seven, Pacific Junior Hockey League quarterfinal series on Feb. 18. After losing the opener, the Kodiaks have won three straight and need one more victory to eliminate the Flames. a 2-1 edge in goals with a pair of markers from Matthew Bissett. Roshen Jaswal scored for the Kodiaks during the middle frame. “They came back and took it to us in the second period and you could see our game changed a little bit,” Harkins said. “We talked to them in the room about it [between periods] and they got back into it in the third.” Aldergrove retook momentum in the final frame with the only three goals of the frame. Veillet, with his second of the night, Brandon Dolby, and

Jackson Waniek rounded out the game’s scoring. Scott McHaffie collected four assists for the Kodiaks, while his teammate Joshua Cronin had three helpers. Kodiaks 2, Flames 1 In a game dominated by defence, the visiting Kodiaks took a 2-0 lead into the third frame and held on for the victory Friday at Planet Ice. After being badly outshot the first two games, the Flames turned the tables, firing 26 shots on goal to the Kodiaks’ 16.

But the Kodiaks scored on two of their shots, off the sticks of Veillet in the first period and Kenny Prato in the middle frame. Adam Bartsch scored the Flames’ lone goal with 7:48 remaining, but that was as close as the visitors would come. Kodiaks 4, Flames 2 The Kodiaks were rewarded for the barrage of pucks they directed at Flames’ goaltender Wesley McLeod, as they evened the series at a game apiece last Wednesday at Aldergrove Arena. Aldergrove outshot Ridge Meadows 23-9 in the first period and managed to get three shots past McLeod to take a 3-0 into the first intermission. Scott McHaffie, Adam Callegari, and Prato scored for the home team during the opening 20 minutes of action. The Flames had a better second period and narrowed the margin to two goals after Travis Oddy scored to make it 3-1. It took all of 32 seconds after the puck was dropped to start the third period for the Kodiaks to restore their three-goal lead, as Veillet scored on a powerplay to give Aldergrove a 4-1 lead. The Flames’ Connor Redmond found the net with 9:35 remaining in regulation to round out the night’s scoring. Overall, the Kodiaks outshot the Flames 53-26. Scott McHaffie was named first start of the game after scoring once and adding one assist.
