The John Robson parent advisory council applied for a grant from the Aviva Community Fund contest, which is giving away $1 million for ideas to create positive change in Canada. Their application was accepted, and it will now go onto the next phase of voting, which takes place between Dec. 2 and 11. “We have really dedicated parents and very energetic ones, NIKI HOPE which is good,” said parent organizer Ronda Field. “So they are out there beating the drum and promoting it any way they can, which is good.” Community members wanting to help the school in its bid to get funding from the Aviva Community Fund can go www.avivacommunity fund.org and enter Qayqayt in the search box. “And so we will be working very hard to get the vote out, to get people registered on the Aviva site and get them to vote every single day,” said Jason Lang/THE RECORD Serena Trachta, chair of the Robson parent advisory council.

City rallies around friends in Philippines
BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
The local Filipino community has already raised thousands of dollars to help people in the Philippines in their time of need. Nearly 2,000 people were confirmed dead and 11 million were affected after Typhoon Haiyan tore through the Philippines last weekend.
Salve Dayao, who owns Java Jazz Café on Sixth Street with her husband Ed, held a fundraiser on Nov. 10. Armed with their cellphones, people gathered in the Sixth Street diner and started calling contacts in search of donations. “I raised $5,640,” Dayao said. “Collectively we raised $20,180. We continued making phone calls.” Since the restaurant’s telethon, which included an appearance on Global

IN MY OPINION
Symphony is a Royal City gem Dear Editor:
It has been said that music soothes the savage beast and, as American composer Oscar Hammerstein is quoted in the musical Oklahoma, “All the sounds of the earth are like music.” Those who did not attend last Sunday’s classical concert at the Massey with our very own symphony missed a most enjoyable and wonderful performance. I have never heard a better performance, as all sections of the symphony seemed to outdo themselves, as did, in my opinion, the conducting of Jack Jin Zhang. I write this letter because our symphony, which we are so fortunate to have in our community, is an inspiration and a joy which we need to take advantage of and support. With dwindling grants from governments for the arts, the symphony, which in the spring of 2015 will
have its 100th birthday, needs funds to survive. But in spite of that, and to the credit of the executive and the players, who receive no remuneration, they reach out to the community so that all can attend concerts on the basis of paying what they can afford – by voluntary donation. I know of no other entertainment that is so professional, uplifting, enjoyable and affordable. So put this date down on your calendar: Friday, Dec. 6, at 7:30 p.m. at the Massey. It will be another wonderful performance, the 14th Christmas Nutcracker dance concert with the Richmond Academy of Dance. There is lots of free parking. Bill Zander, New Westminster

had missed his date with destiny, but I am beginning to think that he has now, finally, found his pace. It used to be that he would approach sensitive issues in a kind of crabwalk, like so many others in the media. But his opinion piece in the Nov. 13 edition (Funding talk, not action, for youth) is one of his most straightforward ever. Discussing the latest report by Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond regarding the misappropriation of funds for services for aboriginal youth, he excels in explaining the “disconnected relationship between governments of various levels and First Nations” and the “political cautiousness (that is) ingrained in the relationship.” He goes on to note that “First Nations must share in the responsibility for this situation.” He continues to brashly note
that “in many instances there is a complete failure of leadership among their leaders.” There now; that wasn’t so hard, was it? May God replenish his inkwell! Larry Bennett, Burnaby
Don’t panic about Thrifty’s
Re: What will replace Thrifty’s?, The Record, Oct 25. As much as I regret the closing of Thrifty’s in Sapperton, let’s not panic. Does anybody know what Sobey’s will be doing with the three Safeways in New Westminster? I suspect they will be re-liveried as Thrifty’s. We will lose one Thrifty’s in Sapperton and gain three in the rest of New Westminster. An acknowledged loss for Sapperton but necessarily for New Westminster overall. Ed Sadowski, New Westminster

balancing the family budget a little easier. Last year, councillors and mayors from the Lower Mainland who were among the lucky few to be chosen as Metro Vancouver directors collectively took home $870,000 in stipends plus $61,000 in expenses; and all of it on top of their local council salaries. Christmas even came early for them. Last month, Metro Vancouver awarded its directors a 2.3 per cent pay increase retroactive to the beginning of 2013; despite the fact that there were no reports of directors panhandling to make ends meet during the year.
For a Metro Vancouver director that means $354 for every regional district meeting that is wrapped up within four hours or $88.50 per hour. God forbid the meeting should run over four hours because then the fee doubles. For directors with additional responsibilities or titles, it can bring a whole new meaning to twoincome households. The mayors of Burnaby, New Westminster, Richmond and the district of North Vancouver all took home at least $26,500 from their gigs at Metro Vancouver last year, and that’s on top of the average $105,000 that they were
each paid by their respective communities. And for Metro Vancouver’s top dog, Greg Moore, it means an extra $70,865 from Metro Vancouver over and above his $85,418 salary as mayor of Port Coquitlam. All nice work if you can get it, but likely not the most ideal model for regional governance in 2013. Two megacities isn’t the answer, but maybe 40 communities is no longer appropriate. And it’s time for the provincial government to step up and show some leadership on the issue. Dermod Travis is the executive director of IntegrityBC.

City concerned over plans for fourth tower BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
A 40-storey tower filled with bachelor and one-bedroom suites isn’t being welcomed with open arms by city council. New Westminster city council has directed staff to continue working with the developer of the Plaza 88 development to try and resolve some of the city’s outstanding concerns and to report back to council before the project proceeds to the public consultation stage. A 40-storey mixed-use commercial and residential tower with 500 residential units is being proposed at 900 Carnarvon St. City council has voiced a number of concerns about the current proposal, including the height of the building, the number of residential units, the breakdown of the rental units (235 studio suites and 265 one-bedroom units) and the provision of several levels of abovegrade parking. “The whole thing is problematic for me,” said Coun. Bill Harper. “I can’t see myself supporting this.” Harper believes a better mix of suite sizes is required to meet community needs in the years to come. Coun. Betty McIntosh said she has “great difficulty” with the small suites

She said the developer needs to hear about the city’s future housing needs. “I think the developer needs to understand what the demographics of this community are,” she said. Coun. Jonathan Cote supports the provision of market rental housing that is being proposed in the building, but also expressed concern that it would only contain studio and one-bedroom suites. “We are building a neighbourhood here,” he said. “There has to be a balance.” Graham McGarva, a founding principal at VIA Architecture, told council that the low interest rates are what makes it feasible
for rental buildings to be built at this time. Tom Lancaster, a planner at VIA Architecture, said an “iconic” signature building is being proposed as the fourth building in the Plaza 88 development. In addition to the residential and commercial spaces, he said the site would include a large amount of open space. “We far exceed the required open space contribution required for this tower,” he said. Responding to concerns about the provision of studio and one-bedroom units, Lancaster said the building doesn’t stand alone but is one of four towers at the site. He said a lot of the twobedroom units in the first three towers aren’t selling as well as smaller units.

City students rank high on compassion survey A CLASS ACT NIKI HOPE
indergarten students in New Westminster are at or above the provincial average when it comes to the development of positive human qualities, such as compassion and kindness, according to a recent study. The district participated in a survey contacted by the Human Early Learning Partnership at UBC and the Dalai Lama Center. The survey assessed children’s development of social and emotional skills, called a “Heart Mind Index,” to accomplish the goal, said
a staff report. The overall results were broken down neighbourhood by neighbourhood. “This is the heart of what we do,” superintendent John Woudzia said when the report was presented at a recent board of education meeting. “It really warms my heart to see how we are doing when compared to the province.” Sandra Pace, the district’s director of instruction, noted that the survey is focused on “life skills that help children later in life.” The Heart Mind Index uses questions from the Early Development Instrument survey of all kindergarten children, which is administered by the team at UBC, to assess students. The five areas in the Heart Mind Index are: gets
along with others; compassionate and kind; solves problems peacefully; secure and calm; and alert and engaged. The term heartmind refers to a balanced focus on the mind and the heart, the reports states. To see the report, visit the school district’s website at district.sd40.bc.ca, click on Board of Education, click on Board Meetings and search for the Nov. 5 committee meeting agenda.
Learning about literacy
New Westminster’s MLA is learning about literacy.
Judy Darcy recently attended a meeting of the Literacy New Westminster task group. The group meets each month to find ways to enhance the literacy levels of residents. At the meeting, Darcy learned about the variety of literacy programs and needs in the community, according to a media release. Kylie Vallee shared with Darcy about the reading flash mobs she helped organize this summer. “We visited local parks, spread out blankets and books and invited families to spend some time reading with us. It was so reward-
ing to see parents and children happily looking through the books together,” she said in the release. “Everyone got to take some books home to keep.” She was especially touched when she learned that some of the families who received books were struggling financially and were unable to buy books for their children, the release notes. The literacy task group works on a number of community programs, including distributing books to low-income families and hosting Money Skills workshops.

Church plans going to public hearing BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER email@example.com
New Westminster city council will decide whether to give its blessing to a proposed rezoning after an upcoming public hearing. The Calvary Worship Centre has applied to rezone 260 12th St. so it can build a new 32-square-foot worship centre. In addition to the sanctuary that would provide space for up to 850 people on the main floor and 300 people in the balcony, the building would also contain a 4,270-square-foot community hall/gymnasium, an entrance foyer, a coffee shop, offices and a children’s worship area that could accommodate up to 195 seats and some small meeting rooms and classrooms. In order for the project to proceed, it requires a rezoning, as well as variances for front yard, side yard, site coverage and parking. The bylaw requires 105 parking spaces, but the applicant is proposing 96 spots. Coun. Betty McIntosh expressed concern that the project wouldn’t have enough parking to accommodate upwards of 1,150 people who could be in the building at one time. “We’ve got less than 100 parking spots,” she said. “I believe we are designing a
disaster.” Jim Hurst, a development planner with the city, said the peak hours of the church (Sunday mornings) aren’t the same as the peak hours of other businesses in the area, so off-street parking would also be available. “I know most churches in New Westminster have a parking issue,” McIntosh said. “It’s not uncommon for churches to be built with not enough parking.” Coun. Jaimie McEvoy shared McIntosh’s concern, as the congregation isn’t just attended by local residents. Architect Roger Amenyogbe told council that about 700 people regularly attend the church’s Sunday service and parking hasn’t been an issue. In addition to carpooling and vanpooling measures included in a transportation management plan, he noted a shuttle also transports people to the church from the SkyTrain station. Amenyogbe said the church has an extremely multicultural congregation, as people from 60 to 70 countries attend. He said the peak times for the church would be at Christmas and Easter. A public hearing about the rezoning application will be held in council chamber on Monday, Nov. 25 at 6 p.m.

The Great Queensborough Intersection Debate: Roundabout or Traffic Signal?

As part of these upgrades, the City is redesigning the intersection of Howes Street and Ewen Avenue. There are two design options for this intersection: a roundabout or a trafﬁc signal. The designs for the new intersection seek to balance trafﬁc management, road use safety and creation of an attractive entrance to the community at Ewen and Howes.

The City of New Westminster is replacing technology that is quickly becoming obsolete. Gary Holowatiuk, the city’s director of finance and information technology, said the capital budget included $480,000 for replacement of personal computers and laptops. On Nov. 4, council approved an additional $100,000 as the earlier budget didn’t account for additional computers that will be needed for the Anvil Centre and the Queensborough Community Centre expansion. A staff report said the money will allow the city to buy up to 60 new tablets to replace the 60 laptops that are six years old and at the end of their useful lifecycle. “The current laptop computers must be replaced fairly soon due to hardware obsolescence and out-ofsupport issues,” stated the report. “The new tablets with the newer version of Microsoft operating systems will meet the city’s mobile business technology needs until 2018.”

Reaching out to help AROUND TOWN
hen a trio of bedheads wearing pyjamas showed up at local homes on Halloween, they were being far from lazy. Instead of tricks or treats, Rachel Way, Cara Falcone and Mikayla Greenwood decided to collect items for the food bank. “We collected non-perishable food for the food bank,” Rachel said. “We got about 120 cans. We were happy with that.” The girls didn’t come home empty-handed, as some folks offered them treats as well. “We have been doing a lot of work with Free the Children. We went to We Day,” Rachel explained. “We were very inspired to try and help.” Last year, the girls collected seven bags of pennies to go toward clean water initiatives in Africa. The Glenbrook Middle School students are already planning their next project.
“There is a group of us trying to build a school in Africa. It costs about $10,000,” Rachel said. “Our first project is we are going to try and collect cans. Then we are going to do a coin drive.”
A longtime New Westminster resident will be particularly proud when Canada Games Pool celebrates its 40th anniversary this weekend. Stories from The Columbian newspaper in the 1970s relay how Don Benson envisioned New Westminster as the home as of the 1973 Canada Summer Games. Politicians ran with the idea and New Westminster and Burnaby hosted the 1973 Canada Summer Games, with aquatic events held at the aptly named Canada Games Pool. “Don Benson of New Westminster probably deserves the most credit since he first broached the idea while serving as box lacrosse committee chairman of the 1969 games in Dartmouth-Halifax,” stated an editorial in The Columbian. The City of New Westminster provided Benson with a commemo-
rative plaque in 1998, on the 25th anniversary of the Canada Summer Games.
B.C. Advanced Education Minister Amrik Virk recently got some hands-on experience doing electromyography testing with students in the sport science lab at Douglas College. Virk spent a recent afternoon at Douglas College, touring the New Westminster campus and engaging with students, faculty and staff. “It’s always great to be able to connect directly with students, staff and faculty,” he said in a college press release. “Douglas College is contributing to the needs of our economy as well as preparing well-educated, job-ready workers through its accessible and high-quality programs.” According to the press release, several students wanted to talk about applied degrees and to thank the minister for approving the college’s new bachelor’s degree in applied psychology, which starts its first intake in January.

Many stories centre around city’s Armoury OUR PAST
ARCHIE & DALE MILLER
here are many buildings with heritage value in New Westminster. One particularly notable example, with significance of age, architecture, location and a longtime community storyline, is the Armoury or Armouries, at the corner of Sixth Street and Queens Avenue. This fine building, home of the Royal Westminster Regiment, was built in the mid-1890s, with formal possession by the military in 1896. The building is filled with stories of, and from, the many military groups preceding the present regiment who have also called this Armoury their home. The regiment traces its military lineage back to the Columbia Detachment of Royal Engineers, 1859 to 1863, and to a volunteer militia
formed in November of 1863 upon the disbanding of the local Royal Engineers. Many of the stories connected to the Armoury are, as you might expect, of troops in training, organizing to go on manoeuvres, formally parading on special occasions and other similar events. There are many historical stories of regimental members heading away to conflicts such as the Boer War, the First and Second World Wars and other, more recent, actions including peacekeeping. This is a working building, so every day there are activities of one type or another underway, being planned or wrapping up. But there is much more to the story of this building and to an earlier version that was located in the downtown area, on McKenzie at Carnarvon. This early drill hall, as it was called, after serving its military needs, was also the location of performances, lectures, dances and large community social gatherings. By the 1890s it was
regarded as being in poor shape, no longer fit to meet all its obligations, so plans were put in place to create a new structure and we have the building of today. The older version was destroyed in the city’s Great Fire of 1898, but the new building served the town well after this conflagration. Many people are aware of the role played by the Armoury after the 1898 fire, as it was a centre for relief activities and supplies for those affected by the blaze, but again, there have been many other nonmilitary events over the decades that form part of the overall heritage of this building. A research project, ongoing over the past 40 or so years, has gathered a wonderful array of stories about the Armoury and events taking place within its wooden walls. Want stories and more from the Armoury’s history? Come to the New Westminster Historical Society evening, Wednesday, Nov. 20, starting at 7:30 p.m. in the New Westminster Public Library auditorium.

Slug pickers, spades and other gift ideas
BRANCHING OUT ANNE MARRISON
hen December gets closer and the gift side of your Christmas list is still blank, it helps to consider what would really help the gardeners in your life, especially the ones who are getting older or dealing with special conditions like containers or extra-high raised-beds. Lots of us garden using whatever’s handy and will kind-of work. My father gardened all his life with a garden line that was two sticks and a bit of string, and the same was good enough for me. But one Christmas I was given an elegant wrought iron garden line with pointed-end stakes that could be hung up, wouldn’t rot and had string that unwound in one pull. At the time, I secretly felt it was pointlessly fancy. But now I
wouldn’t be without it. A few years later, I was startled to receive a birthday gift: the Easy Kneeler, which converts to a seat. I felt far too young and healthy to actually use it, so I stored it for many years. It’s now out of storage and well-used, and my back is so grateful. It’s possible to find ergonomic tools with large, soft handles for arthritic hands. For older gardeners, spades and forks are available in lighter, smaller sizes, and it’s easy to get long-handled trowels. People who garden in very large containers, thigh-high planters or extra tall raised beds may find very short, sturdy spades, shovels and forks useful. Meanwhile, another present which can save a lot of container-crop grief is copper slug tape. It’s now expensive enough to qualify as a thoughtful gift since one new roll eats up most of $20. Slug pickers don’t get much respect. But I found a superb one years ago in an artisan market. I think it could be made at home by anyone who’s handy
with wood. It’s a 3.5-centimetre square block of wood with narrow strips of flat, springy wood attached to either side and stapled into the block twice each side with heavy staples. These lathes measure 40 cm long by 2.5 cm wide and about half a centimetre thick. The wood strips are flexible enough to pick up slugs. A string loop for hanging passes through a hole drilled into the block. Long rubber gloves for people with container ponds is another useful gift idea. People who have to prune roses would probably like a pair of soft leather gloves. But with those, it’s vital to find out the person’s hand size. Some gloves stretch to some degree – but not leather. Another huge help for a gardener is a sharpener that can handle, loppers, pruners or knives. Gift pruners often get a big welcome since, like trowels, they are easily mislaid. Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions. Send them to her by email, firstname.lastname@example.org. It would be helpful to add the name of your city.

Cocktail Shake Up Anya Georgijevic
Our favourite wine bar just got a cocktail facelift, and our heads are spinning. Lauren Mote, a familiar face on the city’s mixologist scene and the co-proprietor of the exquisite bitters and extracts line, Bittered Sling, recently joined UVA as the bar manager. Mote’s innovative concoctions include the stiff-but-tasty Liberation ($15), a calvados, campari, and sherry mix that might just make your brain explode a little—in the good way. A refreshing Gin-Gin Donkey ($12) offers a bitter combination of gin, ginger wine, grapefruit, and sage. Chartreuse Milkshake ($12), a gin and chartreuse combo wins extra points for its inclusion of chocolate bits. Uva Wine Bar, 900 Seymour St., Vancouver, 604-632-9560.
The 100-Mile Shawl
Alexandra Suhner Isenberg
Hamideh Abol doesn’t go to fabric fairs or showrooms to buy fabric for her fashion collections; she visits farms, buys raw wool and felts it herself in her Vancouver studio. The result? Beautiful Simork wool shawls that work with winter coats, cosy sweaters, or over pretty cocktail dresses. They are very warm, unique, and de!nitely our new favourite alternative to fur. She’s also a bit of an artist when it comes to pattern, and her beautiful printed scarves are a great accent to a dark coloured fall wardrobe. Since we’ve not quite managed to achieve the raw, local, handmade, and crueltyfree diet, at least we’ve got a shawl that ticks all the boxes.

Get book ideas for Christmas and clubs BY DEBRA NELSON CONTRIBUTOR email@example.com
The New Westminster Public Library offers many different ways to appreciate books. On Tuesday, Nov. 19 at 7 p.m, join the library staff for a fun, lively way of reviewing books. Book Bits: Rapid Staff Reviews is a fast-paced, animated presentation of some of the staff’s favourite titles. Each reviewer has only 90 seconds to promote a book and convince the audience of its worth. The event is paced by a bell-ringing moderator, which adds to the pressure and the fun. You’ll come away with a list of new ideas for what to read and maybe some to add to your Christmas lists. Speaking of Christmas, if an e-reader or a tablet is on your shopping or wish list this year, make your first stop the library to find out more about e-reading and how to borrow ebooks and emagazines for free. In addition to the handy brochures that
lead you step by step through the process, the library will present an introduction to e-reading on Thursday, Nov. 28 at 7 p.m. Find out how to choose between an e-reader and a tablet and how to borrow books and magazines for free. As space is limited for these two programs, pre-register by phone at 604-5274667 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you belong to a book club or are thinking of starting one, the library has an extensive collection of book club sets that can be borrowed for up to six weeks. Now you can build your own book club set. Choose as many copies as you need, add a reading guide and a book bag. Then check all of them out individually, put them in the bag and you have a set. The book club sets are kept upstairs by the magazines. Pick up a copy of the new brochure and prepare for some great discussions. For more information, phone 604527-4660. The New Westminster Public Library is at 716 Sixth Ave. and is wheelchair-accessible.

Back-to-back Beans for Spartans BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.org
Lindsey Pulice must be wondering what the next three years at Trinity Western University have in store. The Burnaby sophomore left back with the Spartans’ women’s soccer team toasted her second straight Gladys Bean Trophy in as many seasons following Trinity Western’s 1-0 victory over the Université de Montreal Carabins in the Canadian Interuniversity Sports national championship final in Toronto on Sunday. In the final, tournament allstar striker Krista Gommeringer scored the cup-winning goal for TWU in the 59th minute. Trinity Western’s Vanessa Kovacs was named the championship MVP. “It’s pretty unbelievable,” said Pulice. “We were all hugging and screaming, some of us were crying. It was an amazing feeling.” The national title was the fifth such banner in as many CIS finals for the women’s soccer program. The game was also a rematch of the 2009 final between TWU and Montreal that the Langley school won on penalty kicks. Last year, Trinity Western won CIS gold in a shootout over Queen’s. The Spartans also won back-to-back titles in 2008 and ’09. The Spartans’ first national title occurred in 2004 against host McGill. With its fifth national trophy, Trinity Western tied the University of British Columbia for most CIS women’s soccer titles. Canada West teams have claimed 17 national banners in the 27-year history of the CIS women’s soccer championships. “It feels just as good as my first. I want to win more of them,” said Pulice, a second-year business major. “It’s the best feeling in the world to share these moments with my teammates. It’s just so great to accomplish it together.” Pulice’s Burnaby North gradmate Isabella Di Trocchio and fourth-year New Westminster midfielder Caitlin Haines also shared in the Spartan’s second straight crown. But the path to a second consecutive national tournament was far from a sure thing for Trinity

Back-to-back: Second-year defender Lindsey Pulice shared a second straight CIS national women’s soccer title with the Trinity Western Spartans on Sunday. Western. The Spartans finished fourth overall in the Canada West conference with an 8-1-3 record. After starting the year as the pre-season favourite, TWU fell to No. 8 nationally in the polls. But in the playoffs, Trinity avenged an earlier regular season loss to the University of Victoria, advancing to the conference final
with a 1-0 win over the Vikings and claiming one of two available berths to the nationals. In the CanWest finals, TWU lost 2-1 in overtime to Alberta. Trinity Western opened the national championships with a 30 win over Laurier in quarter-final action. The Spartans then got by Atlantic champion Cape Breton 1-
0 to advance to their fifth CIS final in six seasons. “Last year, we had momentum. (This season) was a great challenge, but we succeeded,” said Pulice. “The coaches and the girls, everyone has so much passion and so much heart just to really play for each other. It’s basically what we’re all about.”

rally to edge Bellingham 3-2 in the division goldmedal final on Nov. 11. Owen Stark scored two goals, including the gamewinner, in the final period to help New Westminster to the tournament title. Matthew Drake tied the match 1-1 in the second quarter.
The Warlocks finished fourth in round-robin play following a 7-6 loss to Ridge Meadows 2 in the opening game. First-place Kelowna defeated Ridge Meadows 10-1 earlier in the tourney. But in the semifinal game between Kelowna and New West it was the
Royal City squad that got the jump in the second half. The Warlocks broke open a 1-1 halftime deadlock, taking the lead 4-2 at three-quarter time before holding on for a one-goal win against the high-scoring Okanagan club. TournamentMVPJesson
Flintoff led the way with two goals, while Halen Rasmussen scored the eventual game-winning marker for the Warlocks. The Romp drew minor field lacrosse teams from the Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island, the Interior and Washington State.
New Westminster ’s Brandon Leyh helped lead the Mount Allison Mounties to their first Atlantic football title since 1997. The second-year Mount Allison quarterback completed 15 of 23 passes, including a game-tying touchdown throw, in the Mounties’ 20-17 victory over the No. 1 conference seed Saint Mary’s Huskies to win the Atlantic conference championship Loney Bowl last Saturday. With less than three minutes left to play and driving into a stiff wind, Leyh hit game MVP Josh Blanchard with a 34-yard touchdown strike in the end zone to tie the contest 17-17. On the Huskies’ next possession, linebacker Ty Nguyen intercepted Saints pivot Jack Creighton, running the ball back 13 yards to the Huskies’ 41-yard line. Two plays later, kicker Kyle McLean booted a 22yard field goal with just 53 seconds remaining to give Mount Allison the lead. “Even when it looked grim, these guys just kept making plays,” said Mount Allison head coach Kelly Jeffrey, in a Chronicle Herald story. “Even in my own heart I was a little bit down when the wind shifted and we didn’t have the lead, but they kept playing.” The win was the fifth Atlantic Bowl title for the Mounties’ football program. Leyh, one of just two B.C. players at Mount Allison, finished the game with 245 total yards passing. Leyh led the Atlantic conference with 171.3 passing yards per game. He was second overall with 1,199 total yards through the air. Mount Allison will be at home this weekend to the defending Canadian Interuniversity Sports champion Laval Rouge et Or in the Uteck Bowl. The Mounties turned around a 1-4 start to their season, winning their last three regular season games to qualify for the playoffs.

Volley Royals put up top-15 numbers
Clan women split with Cal Pomona New Westminster ’s Kia Van Laare scored 10 points to help lead Simon Fraser University women’s basketball team to its first conference win this season. Van Laare was one of four Clan players to reach double-figure scoring following a 73-64 win over Cal State Pomona on Nov. 9. SFU lost the first game of a back-to-back series in Pomona, California, falling 66-64 in the opener. Erin Chambers led the Clan in scoring in both games, knocking down 20 points in the Nov. 8 opener, before tacking on 21, including 19 in a big second half for the junior forward, in SFU’s win the following night. Chambers was also a perfect 10-for-10 from the free throw line in the game. Marie-Line Petit contributed 14 points, six assists, four rebounds and
two steals in the Clan win. Katie Lowen also scored 10 points for SFU. The Clan built upon a one-point lead at halftime, starting the second half on a 13-0 run to improve its conference record to 1-1. In the earlier game, SFU rallied from a 52-40 deficit to tie on a Rebecca Landmead layup that tied the game with less than three minutes to play. Petit, with a three-point attempt with 35 seconds left, and Chelsea Reist, on a jumper to tie, both had late chances fail to fall. “We weren’t very good against the zone in the first half, but improved in the second half,” said SFU head coach Bruce Langford in a Clan press release. “We need to continue to move the ball, find open shots, adjust defensively and execute better on some things.” – Tom Berridge
