The Russell Association for the Performing Arts (RAPA) will have four showings of the cult movie classic The Rocky Horror Show Oct. 31 to Nov. 3 at the Russell High School. Written by Richard Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien, the glitter rock musical made its first appearance on the British stage in 1973 and was adapted for film two years later. Current Hollywood superstars such as Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick and Meatloaf were part of the 1975 crew who vaulted a classic B-movie parody of science fiction and horror to cult status. It is filled with catchy lines, outra-

Whitney Quail returns to RAPA (his last performance was as U.S. Navy lawyer Lt. Daniel Kaffe in A Few Good Men), as the scientist and transvestite Dr. Frank-N-Furter, who

first ever Church Street Chili Cook-off was held on Oct. 6 under a big white tent on the site of their next development project, Louxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Landing, across from the Russell Meadows Retirement Community. A local band was also playing at the friendly competition. Eric Murray,

Terry Brown, who also was part of AFGM, sings his way through the role of Brad Majors and Taylor Kelly reprises Sarandonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Janet Weiss.

When asked why Meagher approached RAPA to trying their hand at something completely different, she told The Villager â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been a fan of the Rocky Horror Picture show since it opened in 1975, so when I got involved with RAPA 20 years ago naturally I was interested in putting on the stage production.

Russell Fire Department

Autumn Fire Safety Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to face reality, summer is officially over. The days are much cooler, shorts and sandals have been with replaced sweaters and coats and we are preparing our homes for the arrival of winter. There I said it, and it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt all that much. With these preparations itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also time to refresh ourselves on a few fire safety matters associated with this change in seasons. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure if you spent this past weekend raking leaves, but from the piles of bags I have been seeing around Russell lately certainly some of you have. Now what could raking leaves have to do with fire safety? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good question because I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of anything about raking leaves that has to do with fire safety, but what we do with them after does. Once the leaves have been raked and bagged it is important that the bags are not stacked and stored against your home, be sure to keep them a safe distance away. Bags of dry leaves and branches can be a formidable fuel source for fires and should be discarded in as timely a fashion as possible. The same advice also applies to stacked firewood, it should never be stacked against the side of your home. With cooler temperatures also comes the use of heating equipment; furnaces, fireplaces and portable space heaters are all once again becoming an essential part of our lives. If you burn wood, have you had your chimney cleaned

and inspected? Chimney fires are a frequent occurrence once the autumn arrives and are preventable if the fireplace and chimney are properly maintained. Furnaces also required an annual inspection and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best to do this prior to putting the unit into use. Portable space heaters are a handy way to keep warm but they must be used cautiously. Should you have a space heater have a look to see if the unit is CSA or ULC certified. If it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, you should not be using this piece of equipment as it has not been tested to the safety standards set for these devices. Cheap untested heating devices can be a real danger to you and your family and should be discarded immediately. Even approved heaters should be used in a safe manner as they too can cause fires if not used correctly. This year we change our clocks back to standard time on November 4. We advise to use this occurrence as a reminder to change the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. While youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re changing the batteries, be sure to give the unit a good cleaning, so even if you have hard wired smoke alarms the time change can be a reminder to you as well.

Rocky Horror Continud from the front Quail, when asked if he thought audiences will be receptive, is quoted saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think any show has the chance of offending someone. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a risk you take with live theatre. However, the majority of the audience coming to see this show should be pretty familiar with the content, so I really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think there will be any surprises for anyone.â&#x20AC;? He continued that he thinks the play is great and sometimes â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to push the envelope, and this is a play that really does that. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fun show that you really canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take too seriously.â&#x20AC;? It seems that getting the audience to attend hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been Meagherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest challenge though. Making sure that such a large ensemble is under the same roof and the same time on a regular basis has been. Quail figured that his biggest obstacle would be the singing, but with help from an amazing vocal director that has been the easy part. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As it turns out, the dancing has been the biggest challenge. Apparently I have two left feet, so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a struggle. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve definitely made our choreographer earn her keep.â&#x20AC;? TRHS is not Meagherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first directorial effort, but it is her first musical. She believes that because of the strong support from the team of professionals she has had with her - Ann Cloutier as musical director, RenĂŠe Edmunds as stage manager, Vanessa Anstead as choreographer - â&#x20AC;&#x153;Steering this huge ship has been much easier than trying to go it alone.â&#x20AC;? Meagher notes that â&#x20AC;&#x153;The story speaks for itself and is so well known that those who feel itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too risky probably wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buy tickets, but on the other hand ticket sales so far are going great and I expect sold out shows each night.â&#x20AC;? Opening night will be held on Oct. 31 as a youth night, at a cost of $15 with Student ID. Prizes will be given for best Rocky Horror or best Halloweâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;en costume. Tickets, $20, are available at Pronto, Foodland, Village Paws, Pierre et Fils Embrun, or call 613-445-3657. Visit the website www.rapa.ca or the playâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Facebook page for more information.

Chili benefit charity Continued from the front Other competitors included The Villager, Greg Ball, Fill Yer Boots Cafe and Ă&#x2030;cole St. Joesph. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was hard to pick a favouriteâ&#x20AC;? was heard many times by the public judges, as each recipe was very different from one to the next, especially as judges tried to determine which had the secret ingredient of chocolate or spirits. Oligoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tina Collins, organizer of the event, told The Villager â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very passionate about community engagement and corporate social responsibility and whenever possible, I try to marry them together. Also, nothing brings people out more than food. Chili seemed like a great idea because of the time of year and is always a huge hit.â&#x20AC;? Collins also noted that â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was also a way for Oligo saying to thank you to the community whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve supported us so well over the years.â&#x20AC;?

Villeneuve-Robertson to carry Tory banner in next election Like father, like daughter: Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the scion of former Ag. Minister Noble Villeneuve Tim Hudak congratulated Roxane VilleneuveRobertson on her nomination on Oct. 5. as the Ontario PC candidate for Glengarry-Prescott-Russell in the next provincial election. Hudak applauded and thanked VilleneuveRobertson for her unwavering focus on reducing the size and cost of government and kick-starting the economy to create private-sector jobs. Villeneuve-Robertson comes with a deep pedigree in both the riding and its politics. Raised on a beef farm in the Maxville area, she is the daughter of former SD&G MPP Noble Villeneuve, who served as OMAFRA Minister in the 1990s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Roxane understands the urgency to stop reckless overspending so we are able to invest in the priorities we need,â&#x20AC;? said Hudak. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While the current government continues to deepen Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic crisis, the Ontario PC Party is promoting solutions to create new jobs and rein in government spending.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Better days are ahead for Ontario, but only if we get our fiscal house in order and our economic fundamentals back in line in the face of a $30 billion deficit

and an ongoing jobs crisis,â&#x20AC;? said Villeneuve-Robertson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The PC Party has been ahead of the curve on the economy from the start. Our Party is the only one talking seriously about how we get private sector job growth back on track.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need policies that will encourage growth and put us on the path to prosperity,â&#x20AC;? stated VilleneuveRobertson, noting several specific Ontario PC plans for private sector job growth which include balancing the budget to encourage businesses to expand and hire; lowering taxes for job-creating businesses; treating affordable energy as a cornerstone of economic growth; a more flexible and responsive approach to regulation, and more skilled trades jobs by modernizing the apprenticeship system. Villeneuve-Robertson currently works as the manager of La Fondation de lâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;HĂ´pital Glengarry Memorial Hospital Foundation. GPR is the only rural riding in Premier Dalton McGuintyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quiver. It is currently held by Grant Crack, who edged Tory Marilissa Gosselin in the 2011 general election.

STAy busy, STAy excited as school year unfolds Allie MacIsaac, Student Council President Special to the Villager RUSSELL - â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most wonderful time of the year! Every September, as summer comes to an end, parents hum this jingle while kids roll their eyes. Why should kids be excited for the new school year? From personal experience, I can truly tell you that being a student to St. Thomas Aquinas CHS (STA) is the reason to be thrilled for the upcoming school year! Seven teams of the fall sport program are already running, offering students a broad range of sports and activities to keep active. Staff and students are also organizing fundraisers to support a few charities

including the annual and currently underway, canned food drive with a goal to top last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s record of 8,000 lbs. of food. The schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mission Team has begun preparation for their March Break trip to Guatemala and students have also been raising funds for the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. So far, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve raised $3,000. On top of all that, and studying hard, the Student Organization has hosted two events to instill school spirit, participation and passion into the students and it worked. Students are excited about getting another great year underway! Whether you are a new or returning student to STA, everyone here helps to

ensure that your school year is full of fun! The dedication and positive attitude of our new principal, Ms. Koekkoek, will help to encourage us to strive to reach our full potential. Under her guidance, we are sure to have an incredible year. Going back to school is a glorious time. It is nice to have a bit of structure in our lives and it is even better to spend six hours a day in a learning institute such as STA! Yes, there are deadlines and tests, and some stress. What really matters is that STA aims to create a positive learning environment and memorable experiences, and that makes all the difference.

Slow down - and live Overstuffed praise for garden This summer’s drought roasted crops for most of the season and many farmers have started to harvest what they can, hoping to put something in the bins before autumn’s cold weather sets in. That being said, while driving north on South Russell Road last week, while waiting patiently to go around a large tractor, someone not as patient passed us. The little sports car came up quickly behind me and without hesitation passed us both, on a bend with an intersection looming. It’s a fact of life in rural communities that every autumn tractors and combines take to our roads as farmers head out for the harvest. While they’re certainly known to slow traffic at times, drivers need to ease off the accelerator, leave plenty of space for maneuvering, and be patient until it’s safe to pass, as often farmers will pull as far onto the shoulder as possible giving other drivers a chance to slip by if mailboxes and other features permit. But many of the rural roads are deteriorating and becoming narrower as their edges crumble. South Russell is a great example of that, with the exception of the newly paved Marionville to Morewood stretch. Modern equipment with low ground cover tends to be wider than a lane and a shoulder, and the roads that once fit smaller machinery are simply not holding up to the wear and tear. According to data provided by the Canadian Agricultural Injury Surveillance Program, 13 per cent of farm-related fatalities in Canada are from traffic related accidents, most of which involve tractors. Two of the most common include a farm machine being hit as it is turning onto a public road or being rear-end because motorists underestimate the size and speed of the farm equipment. The triangle SMV signage either doesn’t work, or isn’t understood. But it’s not just about the drivers of the cars, but also those operating the agricultural machinery. How many pieces of equipment have proper signal lights? And if they do, are they clear to traffic at non-standard intersections and lanes into fields? How many rural trailers have brake lights? Is it simply an expectation, because of their sheer size, that they will be seen and paid attention to or just complacency on their part thinking nothing will happen because they aren’t going far? The fact is, we share our rural roads because we have to, and the Highway Traffic Act provides regulations for us all to abide by. But as harvest gets into full swing, remember that farmers have an important role putting food on the same dinner table you are rushing home to. Be patient, and remember that they cannot maneuver as quickly as you, and it really is only for a few short months – school buses come to complete stops and are with us most of the year.

Groan! It’s Tuesday morning and I’m still trying to recuperate from two massive back to back Thanksgiving dinners, one on Sunday, the other Monday. The first one, the annual Van Dusen family dinner, was held in the pristine surroundings of my brother Peter and sister-in-law Anna’s home in orderly Centrepoint, to the west of Algonquin College. The tables were laden with turkey, ham and all the trimmings, followed by an assortment of mouth-watering desserts. Despite a pledge made to myself to go easy, I didn’t hold back, heaping the food high as other guests reeled in amazement. Peter had to warn me quite sternly that the others might like to eat too. I finally backed off… actually Peter and brother Mark had to pull me off, and I settled in to consume my unfair share of the banquet. When it was all over and my body was straining at every seam, I promised myself to never pile it on like that again. I didn’t quite scream it to the heavens but I was determined to make good on my commitment. And then Monday rolled around and by 5 p.m. Sunday’s marathon had worn off I was starting to feel like I could eat a little something. As luck would have it, at that very moment I was confronting my second Thanksgiving dinner,

this one held in a log cabin in rough-and-tumble Glengarry County. In Glengarry, you’re expected to fatten up for the winter and fight for every scrap you get. Elbows held high, I plunged right back in like Sunday didn’t happen, loading up with some – make that a lot - of everything. I comforted myself by insisting Monday’s plate wasn’t quite as full as Sunday’s. As for the pumpkin and apple pies, I proudly held my portion down to a “sliver” of each, and squirted whipped cream only on the pumpkin. The only way I could ease some of the physical strain arising from the second pig-out was by taking a long walk in the woods after the damage was done. I’m happy to report that I didn’t get shot by a goose hunter, certainly something for which to give thanks. Bringing us around the long way through the woods to another thing to give thanks for and that’s the presence in our midst of the Russell and District Horticultural Society and its fearless leader Lindley McPhail. Just when you think that this dedicated group of volunteers has given everything it can to the community – the Living Locally Fair, dry stone bridge in MacDougall Park, hanging baskets downtown, annual plant sale – up pops another brilliant project. This time it’s an enclosed

Children’s Reading Garden at the Russell Village branch of the Russell Township Library that has rapidly become one of my favourite local places to drop by. I’ve got to admit I wasn’t a big fan of relocating the library from the former historic site on Mill Street but I’ve come to appreciate the new location with its welcoming design and comfortable interior. Lindley and the society see the children’s section of the library as a perfect place from which to step out onto “a magic carpet that will take you and your imagination anywhere you want to go.” “How many of us have traveled the world, indeed many worlds, through a book?” they observe in a submission to the Aviva Community Fund for help in paying for the $50,000 project. It’s important to emphasize right here the horticultural society needs our help in winning approval from Aviva by voting – and voting often - in favour of the children’s garden by Oct. 15. Cast your votes at w w w. a v i v a c o m m u n i t y fund.org. The society is also seeking local donations to landscape the garden with stepping stones, shrubs, trees and perennials to add shade, texture, movement and be “a delight to the senses.” If the garden gets built – and I’m sure it will because failure isn’t an option for

Lindley – young travelers will be able to follow a path to sit on Alice’s large caterpillar. They’ll continue on to a little dry stone bridge and waterless pond, perhaps resting on a lily pad or reading while perched on a frog. A small barn and train will remind them of local history and the birdhouse area is sure to become a popular spot. In the Aviva submission, the society notes the library branch is within easy walking distance of all local elementary schools and preschools. The project is designed to simultaneously enhance the joy of reading and of the environment and create a place to share for children, teachers, parents, grandparents and caregivers. In this unrelenting electronic era, the society – which will add maintenance of the garden to its already long list of community duties - believes the project will increase literacy by encouraging youngsters to read more often. I have a suggestion for the society to consider: Add an overstuffed Tom turkey to the caterpillar, the frog and other characters inhabiting the garden as a reminder to me to cut back on Thanksgiving eating binges.

Canadian citizenship is not for sale LETTERS Editor

The Editor: Canadian citizenship is not for sale. Our Conservative government is taking action to strip citizenship and permanent residence status from people who don’t play by the rules, who lie, cheat, and scam their way into obtaining citizenship. Having Canadian citizenship is an honour and a privilege. We will apply the full strength of Canadian law against those who cheapen its integrity by fraud. Our government’s investigation into residence fraud continues to grow, with nearly 11,000 individuals potentially implicated in applying for

to the

citizenship or maintaining permanent resident status illegitimately. We have already begun the process to strip 3,100 fraudulently obtained citizenships. Shockingly, criminal investigations have found that a family of five may pay upwards of $25,000 over four or more years to create the illusion of Canadian residence. This fraud hurts everyday Canadian families. Those who illegitimately obtain permanent residence or citizenship status have access to tax-

McKenna honoured by Brain Injury Association Special to The Villager OTTAWA - At the annual Brain Injury Association of Canada conference, held on Sept. 27 at the National Arts Centre, Justin McKenna of Russell was co-awarded the 2012 Debbie and Trevor Greene Award of Honour.

This award is granted to recognize a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extraordinary and heroic contributions to advancing the awareness of acquired brain injuries in Canada. The association was pleased to honour two young adults from the Ottawa region, who, in

their teens and both were aspiring athletes, both suffered traumatic brain injuries. McKenna, whose life changed as a result of his ATV being struck by a car, in 2007, has despite his challenges, taken the time to edu-

Walkathon for Alzheimer Society

Residents are seen here cutting the ribbon of the Walkathon for Alzheimer Society, organized by the Duncanville Russell Resident Council, held on Fri., Sept 28 at the Russell Meadows Retirement Community. Residents walked together for the cause that has affected so many. This event was also in partnership with the Alzheimer Society, the Forest Park Day Program, LeGenesis and St. Viateur Nursing Home. The Scotiabank Match Your Funds Program matched the funds raised for the Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Share Your Dream Program.

cate people about acquired brain injury. The community of Russell, who has shown McKenna tremendous support, was also mentioned as a community who has become more aware of the challenges and disabilities associated with these types of injuries. McKenna and his team, are often seen participating and organizing events such as the St. Thomas of Aquinas Wheelchair Challenge and the Brain Matters fundraiser to help support his ongoing rehabilitation. McKenna shared this honour with Jodi Graham of Ottawa, who was injured as the result of a 2006 car accident. Graham has since educated people about traumatic brain injury and mentored survivors through their recovery and rehabilitation. Despite her challenges, and along with family and friends, Graham organizes Brain Day - Believe in Brain Power, where funds raised go towards assisting others with this form of injury and to help Graham with her rehabilitation. As part of that rehabilitation and with determination, Graham has recently completed a walk around a track, her first in six years.

OCTOBER IS

Breast Cancer AWARENESS MONTH During National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we stand together in our support for a cure and our support for the women who are faced with the disease. By encouraging breast cancer research and raising awareness of the importance of early detection, we can all help save lives. It is estimated that nearly 200,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year, and that more than 40,000 of these women will die. Breast cancer is a threat to women of all ages, races and walks of life. Even men are at risk for breast cancer, with

approximately 1,700 men diagnosed each year. These numbers remind us why it is so important to know the signs, symptoms and risk factors of breast cancer. Early detection of breast cancer is the best weapon against the disease, which means breast self-exams should be performed regularly, with clinical breast exams every one to three years. By the age of 40, women should begin getting mammograms every one to two years. In addition, healthy lifestyle habits like physical activity, not smoking, minimizing alcohol intake and consuming plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables can help women reduce their risk factors.

T-Wolves get the best of Ravens in Sr. basketball Darren Matte Villager Sports RUSSELL— The high school basketball season got underway bright and early on Oct. 3, as the Timberwolves welcomed the Ravens to Russell High for an 8:30 a.m. tip off. Russell went right to work in the opening quarter and established a 9-6 lead. Chloe Park had four points in the first and Rachel Hayton added three. At the other end of the court it was Sarah Shewan who scored all of the Ravens six points. The T-Wolves continued to buckle down defensively, in the second, and this time only allowed Shewan to get one bucket on them. Meanwhile, the Ravens took a number of fouls, and Russell made them pay at the charity stripe. Five of Russell’s 11 points in the quarter came from the line and with Park hitting a buzzer-beater just before half, they led 20-10 at the break.

Russell picked up a pair of quick buckets in the third quarter both from Park. The Ravens finally found twine with three minutes to go when Theresa James pulled up and hit a jumper. Shewan added another late, but the Ravens still trailed by 10, heading to the fourth quarter. The fourth saw a great late charge by the Ravens, led by 10 points from Shewan. The Ravens needed to be aggressive on defense, which sent the T-Wolves the line multiple times. They hit five more free throws, and hung on for the 35-24 win. Shewan and Park were the stories for their teams, as they each had a game-high 18 points. It was the Russell supporting cast that made the difference with Beth Hayton, nine points, Rachel Hayton and Nicole Slater, three points each, and Kelsea Mann, two. James finished with three for the Ravens, Shelly Nyentap had two and Sarah Clothier one. The T-Wolves continued

their roll with another win later that day against Embrun, 53-19. Russell opened up a big lead at the half 29-14. Park and Beth Hayton each had 18-points for the Ravens as they cruised to the win. The hot start to the campaign has coach Laure Mitchell excited for the season. “I was very impressed with their team effort. We have been focusing on defense in practice and they played a very strong defense in both games. Looking forward, we will continue to focus on our defensive play and will add some offensive strategies as well. Overall, I am very happy and look forward to what the season will bring!” As for the Ravens, they rebounded in the second game, but beating St. Francis Xavier 41-17 to even their record at 1-1 on the day. Both Russell teams will be in action today, Oct. 10, at St. FX in Hammond.

Ravens defender Shelly Nyentap tries to stop the T-Wolves’ Chloe Park on this layup, but Park was able to get the shot up and over the post player in the senior girls basketball game on Oct. 3 at Russell High. There would be no stopping Park, who finished with tied for a game-high 18-points, or the T-Wolves as they went on to win 35-24.

T-Wolves go 1-1 at tourney ROCKLAND— The Russell High Timberwolves senior girls soccer team opened their fall season with a tournament on Oct. 2 at Rockland District High School. The T-Wolves had a pair of games at the event against Embrun and L’Escale. This year the

school does not have a junior team, so the squad is a varsity team playing in the senior division. Russell got out to a great start against Embrun as Carley McKinnonHumphreys opened the scoring in the first half, giving her team the 1-0 lead at the break.

McKinnon-Humphreys netted her second of the game, in the second half, and even though the team did concede one goal, they still hung on for the 2-1 win. Carleigh Trottier earned the win in net for Russell. In their second game, the T-Wolves found them-

Darren Matte Villager Sports CASSELMAN— It was an impressive start to the soccer season for the St. Thomas Aquinas junior girls soccer team as they picked up a pair of wins in their opening tournament of the high school soccer season. The tournament took place in Casselman on Oct. 2 and saw the Ravens face Le Relais and Le Sommet. STA 3 Le Relais 0 The Ravens began the day hitting the pitch against Le Relais. They opened up a lead in the first half with a pair of goals. Jayna Hohsdorf got St. Thomas on the board first, then Lauren Crook scored to make it 2-0 before the half. In the second, they added to their lead as Brooke Morningstar found the back selves in a close match against L’Escale after the first half, as it was all square at 1-1. Chloe Park scored the marker for the T-Wolves. Unfortunately, for Russell, L’Escale surged in the second half and scored two more goals to hand Russell their first

of the net. The Ravens held on and took the game 3-0. Haile Robinson was in net and kept the clean sheet. STA 6 Le Sommet 0 The Ravens looked to make it two for two when they played their second game later in the day against Le Sommet. Once again, the Ravens got out to a hot start. Hohsdorf, again, opened the scoring giving the Ravens the early lead. Emily Spence then netted a pair of goals and Alicia Brind’Amour scored one more as St. Thomas took a 4-0 lead to half. In the second, Crook picked up her second of the day as the Ravens kept the pressure on. Hohsdorf almost scored another, but she was denied by a cross bar. Later, off a corner kick, Bianca Moore sent a laser to the loss, 3-1. The team is coached by Emily Olmstead, who expressed her optimism for the season. “I have an extremely talented group of girls this year and we were the stronger team in both games. We have been practicing before

twine after kicking the cross out of mid air to make it 6-0. The Ravens were looking for more and thought they had made it 7-0, before being called for offside. Still, they had more than enough to win, 6-0. Coach Shawn Benoit summed up the first day. “It is still early but it was a great start. Some of the girls have been playing together since they were in grade 7 and 8 so they have really been able to gel as a team. For our first game, I thought it was good. We moved the ball well and had good communication on the field.” The Ravens played their second tournament of the season yesterday in Embrun and will play their playoff tournament on Oct. 16 at Russell High. school twice a week, and we hope to improve on using the width of the field and using our speed before our next tournament.” The T-Wolves were in action yesterday at a tournament in Hammond, hosted by St. FX.

Vikings sunk by Rebels; earn win over Glens Darren Matte Villager Sports CASSELMAN— Just a few weeks into the season the Char-Lan Rebels are proving to be the surprise story leading the St. Lawrence Division standings. The Vikings have been right there behind them and look to make up ground when the Rebels came to Casselman on Oct. 4. Casselman concluded their weekend by paying a visit to Alexandria. Vikings 3 Rebels 4 Even though the Vikings were able to pick up two short-handed goals and a lead with one period to play, it was two quick goals to begin the third period, by the Rebels, that did them in. Char-Lan came out with tones of pressure early in the game and controlled the puck well. But, it was the Vikings who got on the board first when Simon Cousineau picked up a turnover in the Rebels zone, while the Vikings were short-handed, threw it on net and Joel Adam tucked it in for the 1-0 lead. The game got quite chippy after the first goal, but Char-Lan continued to press. Vikings goalie Phillippe Quesnel very busy, but he was up to the task. The Rebels did beat him on a 5on-3 power-play goal by Connor Primeau off a quick shot at the hash marks. The Rebels came close to taking the lead by hitting the post, redirecting a shot that

almost fooled Quesnel and intercepting a Quesnel clearing attempt for a shot that was stopped, but it was 1-1 after one. Casselman’s short-handed unit struck again in the second period, off another CharLan mistake on the power play, when Derek Widenmaier forced a turnover and fired it on net. The initial shot was stopped, but Maxime St-Pierre was on the doorstep to clean up the rebound, 2-1 Casselman. The Vikings killed off another 5-on-3 power play, but moments after it expired Quinlin MacDonell hit Kevin Veilleux with a beautiful back-door pass and it was all tied at two. With just over five minutes to play in the period, Joel Adam found the puck in a scramble and banged it home to give the Vikes a 3-2 lead heading to the third. Despite the late momentum for the Vikings, it swung back in favor of the Rebels in the third. Ross Craig netted one 38 seconds into the period and then Matt Gregoire scored just over a minute later and the Rebels were ahead 4-3. Casselman could not get another one, despite outshooting the Rebels in the third 12-10 and the Rebels increased their lead on first in the division to five points with the 4-3 win. Game notes: Quesnel made 33 shots in the Vikings net in the loss;

Robbie Chapman earned the win making 27 stops. The Vikings power play went 0-5; Char-Lan was 1-11, which included three 5-on-3 advantages. Vikings 6 Glens 2 Casselman looked to salvage the weekend on Oct. 7 against the Glens. But it was Alexandria who got on the board first when Jonathan Cry found the net. The Vikings came right back and answered less than a minute later off a goal by Adam Wensink. Taylor Widenmaier got one 1:49 after and the Vikings led 2-1 after one. In the second, The Vikings rounded off three unanswered goals to take a commanding lead. Taylor Widenmaier scored his second of the game 17 seconds into the frame making it 3-1. Luc Forget got one with 3:20 to go and then off the following face off, Maxime Choquette scored to make it 5-1 after 40 minutes. Jordan Baptiste made it 61 Vikings in the third. Bradley Massia got one back for the Glens, but it was not enough as the Vikings took it 6-2. Alex Michaud made 27 saves for the Vikings in the win; Antoine Marchand stopped 40 in the loss. This week, the Vikings will take part in the league’s Fall Classic in Arnprior. They play Oct. 13 against the host Packers and then Oct. 14 against Metcalfe.

Casselman Vikings captain Joel Adam, cleans up a rebound off a shot by Simon Cousineau, while the Vikings were short-handed in their game against the Char-Lan Rebels on Oct. 4 in Casselman. That goal made it 1-0 Casselman, however, a pair of goals two minutes into the third allowed the Matte photo Rebels to win the game 4-3.

Darren Matte Villager Sports EMBRUN– The Panthers opened their home schedule on Oct. 5 by hosting North Dundas. The Panthers opened go a big lift from Charles Labonté and Francis Legault who connected twice to lift the home side to the win. Embrun got their home fans into the game just 1:22 in. Shane McPhee was wide open in the slot where Ryan Kemp hit him with a pass that McPhee roofed on Rockets goalie Andrew DeChamplain. Robbie Gifford also had an assist for the Panthers on the play. The Rockets made a few mistakes in the first period in their own zone and the Panthers were quick to capitalize. Dexter MacMillan got the puck off a turnover, but the Rockets defenders were bailed out by DeChamplain. Soon after, the Rockets were hoping to get on the board when they were given a power play as Sean MacDonald went to the box

for roughing. However, on the power play Labonté intercepted a pass and took it the other way for a two-on-one with Legault. Legault made a move, but nice DeChamplain, out of pure desperation, stretched out along the ice with his paddle down to rob Legault of a goal. Unfortunately, for DeChamplain, Labonté was right their to bang home the rebound, 2-0 Panthers. After killing the penalty, the Panthers went back on the attack and Taylor Armstrong finished a nice passing play, back door, from MacDonald and MacMillan. The Rockets finished the first on a high note with some great plays and a penalty kill, but still trailed at the intermission, 30. The second period saw more stellar play from DeChamplain, but Panthers goalie Philip Eberley also made great saves when called upon. Brandon Buma came close to beating him as he created numerous chances for

himself and his teammates. North Dundas put a much better effort together in the second, however, they could not take advantage and it was still 3-0 after 40 minutes. Eberley continued to be solid to start the third and that inspired his squad. Labonté got the puck at the Rockets blue line, deked his way through all of the Rockets and buried it to make it 4-0. Legault and Mathieu Gregoire earned assists on the goal. North Dundas finally broke Eberley’s shutout with 11 minutes to go. Dylan Fawcett’s point shot made its way through to the back of the net and Eberley never saw it. Josh DeRouchie and Buma had assists. North Dundas was unable to build off the goal and the Panthers held on for the 4-1 win. This week the Panthers host the Papineauville Vikings on Oct. 12, puck drop is at 8 p.m. and then are in Vankleek hill to battle the Cougars on Oct. 13.

Jets grounded by late goal CLARENCE– For the second straight game, the Metcalfe Jets outshot their opponents but came up short by a goal on the scoreboard. Playing their second game of the young EOJHL season on Oct. 7 in Clarence, the Jets once again played well, but could not convert on more than one opportunity while maintaining sustained pressure for several shifts in the first two periods, keeping the Clarence Castors largely on their heels.

STA battles RHS in Sr. boys soccer Darren Matte Villager Sports HAMMOND— The Russell High - St. Thomas rivalry wrote the latest chapter on Oct. 3 when the two teams met in senior boys soccer action. There was no home-school advantage or sidelines packed with students at this match, as the two teams hooked up in Hammond at St. Francis Xavier. St. Thomas struck first in the game as Dan Cogan knocked in a corner kick from Kyle Clowater, past T-Wolves keeper Nick St. Germain. St. Thomas was looking for more and almost made it 2-0, but drilled a post. Both the TWolves and Ravens had their chances near the end of the half, but neither found the net and it was 1-0 St. Thomas at half. The Ravens kept getting chances in the second. They almost converted on another corner, but were denied by a good save, by a Russell defender who kicked the ball to safety, just ahead of the line. Cogan almost picked up his second goal when he was in alone, but St. Germain got a hand on it to send it wide. Russell put more attackers up front in hopes of finding an equalizer, but the St. Thomas defense held strong and the Ravens won 1-0. Shaun

Crook was solid in the Ravens net, keeping the clean sheet. Earlier in the day, the Ravens took on the hosts, St. FX. The Ravens jumped out to an early lead when Mike Cogan blasted a shot from the top of the 18-yard box to the top corner of the net for a 1-0 lead. The Ravens were closing in on victory, but a lapse on defense allowed St. FX to score late and pick up a point with a 1-1 draw. As for the T-Wolves, their other game on the day was against L’Escale. The TWolves matched L’Escale in the first half and it was tied at the break after Liam Cook scored for Russell. In the second half, L’Escale beat T-Wolves keeper Moodie Young twice and won the game 3-1. Coach Randy McPhee was still pleased with his teams showing. “I thought they played well. We did play two very strong teams. I felt we were better in the second game, but just couldn’t get one. We had solid efforts from our keepers and the defense worked really hard. We’ll continue to work hard and see how we do next week at our tournament in Casselman.“ The T-Wolves and the Ravens are at a tournament in Casselman later today, Oct. 10.

Jr. Ravens win two

HAWKESBURY–— The St. Thomas junior girls basketball team won two games on Oct. 3 against ESCC (Casselman) and Le Sommet (Hawkesbury). The Casselman game ended 32-21 and was a tight game for the first three quarters. The Ravens led by six at the half and then Lauren Crook, who led the team in scoring, hit a buzzer-beater in the third that knocked out Casselman. The second game was a 35-13 final. Le Sommet led early, but the Ravens found their stride and took over. The Ravens defense guards Sonia Hatherall and Erica Provost did exceptional jobs of forcing the other team to turn the ball over. On the glass, Brooke Morningstar and Haleigh Mckenzie rebounded well both offensively and defensively. Coach David Brooks was already looking ahead to future games after the first two victories. “For the next set of games we'll be looking to broaden our offence and spread the ball a little more around the court. On defense, we'll need to keep pressuring the opposing guards and hope to force turnovers so we can use our speed in the transition game.” The Ravens are in Alexandria later today.
