SNGR Council briefs STAFF REPORT

TWO ROW TIMES

SIX NATIONS — The Six Nations Horsemen Association approached Six Nations of the Grand River council for clarification on the lease agreement to the horse barn at the Ohsweken Fairgrounds. The previous lease has ended and the Association says there is no one currently covering maintenance duties at the site. The Association offered to take over the maintenance responsibilities at the barn, and raised concerns about having potholes in the area filled. SNGR agreed to work with the Association and get clarity on the details of the previous lease and transition to creating a new one. SIXTH LINE RESIDENTS A Six Nations band member and resident of Sixth Line west of Chiefswood Road approached SNGR with concerns about the roadway in their neighborhood. Rod Whitlow says the section of Sixth Line between Seneca Road and Chiefswood Road is still an unpaved clay surface and is hazardous to travel, causing a risk to school children in the area and making it difficult for First Responders to access that part of the reserve. Whitlow has organized a

petition with landowners in the area to advocate for the council to provide funding in the next budget to fix the road surface and pave it. Six Nations Public Works Director Micheal Montour says part of the issue is local landowners who do not wish to participate in road expansion or other work on their property. Whitlow pointed out that in the 1990s a previous version of the Community Plan committed to all roads on Six Nations being paved in a 20 year time frame. SNGR committed to working with Public Works, Whitlow and the local landowners on Sixth Line to reach an amicable solution for all parties. CRISIS LINE UPDATES Six Nations Health will be modernizing the Mobile Crisis Line service. The agency is now in the first of four phases to modernize the way they respond to immediate crisis needs by implementing a live chat, texting and social media presence 24/7. INDIAN DAY SCHOOLS SNGR has physical copies of the Indian Day Schools settlement application package available for band members. Gowling WLG is the only certified firm assisting with applications. There is no need to secure an additional lawyer to fill out the forms. Free help is available by calling 1-888-221-2898.

SIX NATIONS — As can be seen from the roadside, the Grand River has overflowed and flooded areas of Six Nations. An update on the flooding was released by Six Nations Fire and Emergency Services on Tuesday morning which included due precaution warnings: “The road closures and flooding are currently still in place on 4th Line Rd within the Six Nations Community,” wrote they Facebook page. “The flood waters are now starting to slowly recede in the Six Nations area but significant flooding is expected to continue until at least tomorrow. Yesterday firefighters did again go door to door in the flooded area of the community to check on residents who decided to

flooding from the Grand River. In land flooding is also still occurring at a number of residence within the Six Nations community due to the large amount of rainfall across the entire region over this past weekend. All weekend we have been monitoring the flood waters as per the flood warnings which we have received from the Grand River Conservation Authority. The weekends weather event produced the highest January rainfall on record for this part of the province. Flows in the Grand River have been similar to those experienced during the June 2017 flood event. Water levels in the Grand River are expected to remain high in the Six Nations area today and during the overnight hours and will be high enough over the roadways

in some effected areas to make it impassable. Please do not ignore the road closure signs. Saturday evening a motorist attempted to drive through the flood waters and was pulled into the ditch by the flood waters but thankfully was not pulled into the Grand River. Thankfully no injuries occurred as a result of that incident. Currently we still have significant high current flows in the river. Please avoid flooded areas. Even six inches of fast moving floodwater can knock you off your feet, and a depth of 12 inches can float your car. Never try to walk, swim or drive through the water. Do not attempt to drive over a flooded road. STOP. Turn around and go another way. Keep children from playing in floodwaters or near culverts and storm drains. Please stay away from the River as the current water flow is fast and could easily pull a person and/or vehicle into the river.” As of Monday, which can be seen in the photos displayed, the Chiefswood Park gazebo, walkway bridges, Aka:we Canoe Club building and much of the area that hosts the Grand River Champion of Champions Pow Wow was partly or fully submerged.

A gift of peace returned: Cornplanters Pipe CHEZNEY MARTIN

chezney@tworowtimes.com

TWO ROW TIMES

SALAMANCA — An artifact that belonged to Seneca Chief Cornplanter has been transferred back to the ownership of the Seneca Nation. The pipe had been missing for nearly 150 years. The official repatriation ceremony of the pipe took place last Thursday at the Onohsagwe:de’ Cultural Center’s Distinct Community Room. This brought Kawenni:io/Gaweniyo Elementary and High School students to venture out to see the historic event, with staff saying “finally.” The school allowed 13 students to from gr. 7 to gr. 12 to attend the ceremony, where the family and oldest descendant of Cornplanter also attended. “All of the students were pretty interested and pretty happy to go,” said Alisha Thomas, a teacher at the school. “You could just see the intensity on the students faces watching, and you could tell they were fully engaged in the ceremony.” “It was just a really good experience for the kids to actually be there and welcome back a part of their history,” she said. Known as Gaiänt'wakê or Kaiiontwa'kon in the Seneca language and called Cornplanter to Europeans, he was a Seneca war chief and diplomat of the Wolf clan that lived from 1732 to 1836. Cornplanter was born in the village of Conewaugus on the Genesee River in New York, and was a son to a Seneca woman and a Dutch trader named John Abeel (O’Bail). He later became a feared chief warrior, Cornplanter fought in the French and Indian War and the American Revolutionary War. The pipe tomahawk was a symbol of peace given as a gift to Cornplanter by George Washington. But the peace pipe tomahawk had been missing from the New York State Museum in Albany for the past 70 years. A discussion came out of a history lesson from Jock Hill about the exact

reason as to why Washington gave the pipe to Cornplanter. The staff explained that Hill talked about when Washington was a warrior. “He said that Cornplanter had the opportunity to kill George Washington, but he didn’t,” said Kari Miller, an instructor at the K/G high school. “The first president of the United States, he let him go.” Thus, Washington was set free. “Cornplanter was more or less like ‘we don’t want war, we want peace, just leave us alone,’” said Thomas. “And that’s why Washington kind of always had a soft spot for the Senecas.” “Cornplanter, in comparison, was to the Senecas what Joseph Brant was for the Mohawks,” added Miller. Historians say the pipe stayed in Cornplanter's family for generations before it was stolen. Since then the artifact was in the hands of private collectors. The pipe was returned to the New York State Museum two years ago by an anonymous donor. Prior to the official transfer of ownership, the pipe was on loan to the Seneca Iroquois National Museum from March of

last year. Now guests and members of the Nation can see it at the Seneca Museum as often as they would like. The K/G students then stayed the night in Tonawanda to attend a Great Law meeting the next day. “At the meeting the coordinators want to get youth on board and streamline what everyones learning in regards to the Great Law, because there’s so many versions. So that streamlining is one of the things our school wants to get on board with, like helping with transcribing and translating different parts of it,” said Thomas. This is to be done to ensure that all of the Haudenosaunee reserves have the same information. The staff also included that the Great Law will be incorporated into the curriculum once it is finalized. The students were also taken to see the rows and rows of ceremonial masks that were returned to the people as well. As for the pipe, the museum plans to display the piece at the centre of a new exhibit that will honour Cornplanter.

The earth is on fire CHEZNEY MARTIN

TWO ROW TIMES

There was a radio show that I listened to once. I can’t remember the name of the show or the host, or even the station; but I can clearly remember the topic. The speaker was setting the stage for a pep talk on how to live life in a carefree way. He spoke about releasing old baggage and removing toxicity from inner relationships. And he used an anecdote to really drive things home: “there was a man I knew from high school that would eat all of the right foods, he would exercise, he was great at his job and had such a clean bill of health that his doctor told him he wouldn’t have to worry until he was 80,” he said. "But he was struck by a vehicle while jaywalking. There is no day that is promised for any of us, so indulge in the good things. Eat the cake, skip a day of work to spend with family, nothing is promised to us in this life.” This story, I found, is told in many ways with a different character and scene, but the sentiment remains the same — enjoy yourself today because tomorrow is not promised. But this is not a mantra that governments should live by. Governmental bodies have the strongest power to ensure that this earth is here tomorrow and they can each contribute to its early demise, which we are coming to now. We already know what’s happened in the amazon. Just last year, record fires in the Amazon sparked international outrage and capped a decade that saw the rainforest

lose an area the size of over eight million soccer fields to deforestation. A new study warned that as the climate becomes hotter and drier, future fires could be far more damaging. The same study projects that the amount of forest burned could double by 2050 and consume 16 percent of the rainforest — an area nearly the size of the entire state of Michigan, according to a professor at the University of California-Irvine and a lead author of the study. Three volcanoes erupted in three days in three different counties as well. The eruptions were reported from three different countries, namely Mexico, Japan, and the Philippines, during the first few week of the year 2020. Meanwhile the fires in Australia have been burning for months. The fires have consumed nearly 18 million acres of land, caused thousands to evacuate and killing millions of animals. And the blaze is showing minimal signs of slowing down. The Australian state of New South Wales, where both Sydney and Canberra are located, declared a state of emergency this week, as worsening weather conditions could lead to even greater fire danger. Each and every one of these fires hastens global warning. And now, in our own community, the Grand River has overflowed with natural drainage water because all of the water that would have and should have been snow has gathered as a flood. We have an entire network of governments across the world that make decisions as though we have some where else to go should this earth be ruined beyond repair. How hellish.

The fallout from a false nuclear alarm By Jack L. Rozdilsky, Associate Professor of Disaster and Emergency Management, York University, The Canadian Press This article was originally published on The Conversation, an independent and nonprofit source of news, analysis and commentary from academic experts. Disclosure information is available on the original site. This form has been condensed to fit word count parameters. On Sunday at 7:23 a.m., residents of the Greater Toronto Area were awakened by an alert issued by Ontario's Emergency Alert Ready System stating: “An incident was reported at the Pickering Nuclear Generating Station. There has been NO abnormal release of radioactivity from the station and emergency staff are responding to the situation.” At 8:06 a.m., the Ontario Power Generation released a statement that the alert was issued in error and that there was no danger to the public or the environment. At 9:11 a.m., another message from the Provincial Alert Ready System stated that the initial nuclear alert was ``in error.’' Any time there is an incident — including a false alarm — at a nuclear power station, it causes us to pause and consider. In this case the fallout is not radioactive, it is increased public uncertainty concerning the reliability of systems meant to warn the public about nuclear disasters. From one perspec-

tive, the system worked. However, these alarm tests certainly worked to capture the public's attention, but in a bad way. An emergency bulletin was issued stating a concern existed (an incident) and the location of the concern was stated (Pickering). Then the alert provided advice on precautionary and protective measures and recommended that people near the Pickering Nuclear Generating Station did not need to take any protective actions at this time. If there actually were some type of incident with the risk of radiation release, specific instructions would have been provided. Those instructions would have been: sheltering in place, evacuating to pre-determined reception centres and/or possibly taking potassium iodine pills to protect from radiation injury. Nuclear incidents are typically contained on the site of the nuclear power station itself. In the rare event of a radioactivity release off-site, a 10-kilometre zone surrounding the Pickering Nuclear Station would be the initial area where the public would directed to take immediate action. But, the error of publicly broadcasting the alert came during a routine Sunday morning training exercise. The error could create serious damage to public emergency preparedness efforts. Keep in mind that this alert was issued in the context of a city already traumatized by a disas-

ter earlier this week. Dozens of people from Ontario were killed from an accident related to technology and human error when Ukrainian International Airlines Flight PS752 was struck by an anti-aircraft missile in Iran. The public perceives nuclear power as having a higher risk than the dangers that are actually present. In light of these risk perception issues, scholars have suggested that there is a need to develop plans and materials for communicating with the public in the event of a nuclear disaster. At first notice, a nuclear incident alert prompts an elevated level of concern. Its subsequent cancellation brings a rapid decompression when individuals learn that the consternation was created over nothing. The situation can lead to lack of trust in the authorities who are responsible for safeguarding the public in the event of an actual nuclear emergency. In January 2018, an alert was issued in Hawaii warning of an impending ballistic missile attack. Thirty-eight minutes later, the alert was rescinded as a false alarm. In the Hawaii case, a public alert was accidentally issued during a routine internal test of the Emergency Alert System. The Hawaii Emergency Management Agency released a statement that the false alert was due to human error. Within hours of the false nuclear alarm, the office of Ontario's Solicitor General released a

statement of apology and said a full investigation has been launched into the error made during the routine training exercise. Those initial actions are only the first steps in attempting to repair the damage. Human error and poor software design were identified as root causes, and investigations suggested revamping the system, specifically in terms of oversight of the Integrated Public Alert & Warning System in the United States. If we take the incident in Hawaii as a guide, the fallout was far-reaching. In the immediate term, all upcoming emergency drills and exercises were suspended. Changes were put in place, such as a two-person verification rule along with a new cancellation command system for public alerts. As the false alarm became a scandal, state-level emergency management officials resigned. Human error and poor software design were identified as root causes, and investigations suggested revamping the system, specifically in terms of oversight of the Integrated Public Alert & Warning System in the United States. The bottom line is that a false alarm for an incident at a nuclear power station erodes public safety efforts. Fortunately, the risks realized from the Ontario emergency alert were not related to actual radioactive fallout. The fallout from the false alarm is that the public's trust in emergency alert systems was jeopardized.

Trump, Trudeau and other trash RACHEL A. SNOW

rachelannsnow634@gmail.com

TWO ROW TIMES

Canada’s abysmal record on reconciliation has achieved no benchmarks and no successes in the past decade, even as the Liberal government touts its propaganda. As we enter a new decade, how will we better our lives, and the lives of our families, to end the wholesale destruction of Indigenous communities? Post-election, Trudeau said: “government has done more for Indigenous Canadians and Indigenous communities than any government in history.” It is a bloviating statement you’d expect more from Donald Trump than a Canadian official who knows better. In 2016, Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission released its final report and recommendations. The government has yet to address any of these recommendations from the perspective of the Indigenous. Instead the 2017, the Liberal Government unilaterally split DIAND into Indigenous Relations and Indigenous Services. This rearranging of deck chairs on the Liberal Titanic has done nothing to resolve issues of mass incarceration, genocide of Indigenous women or the deaths of Indigenous children in the foster care system who are being held in greater numbers than those suffering mass detention in the U.S. This past year celebrated the UN International Year of Indigenous Languages. But rather than taking steps to protect Indigenous language and the cultures that nurture them, our government has continued the colonial agenda to destroy Indigenous rights, sovereignty and identity through a continued assault on Indigenous lands and resources. In this past year, the Liberal government raced two pieces of legislation through the House of Commons on: (1) Indigenous languages and (2) child and family services. The Indigenous languages bill was meant to preserve original languages with limited funds. This would only give a short window of opportunity to preserve what is

known, not develop or expand Indigenous teachings in a long-term strategy. The child and family service legislation was meant to halt indigenous children going into care with a jurisdictional change. The Liberals attached no funding to the legislation. Both bills were rammed through the House of Commons four months before a national election. This was window dressing. The Liberal government wanted to be seen as doing “something” about the Indian problem, no matter how feeble or unconstructive. Each time the federal government addresses the Canadian public about Indigenous issues they are careful to use economic language. There are numbers released, usually in the billions about program or service dollars, “intended” for the Indigenous. The breakdown of these amounts is not released. Canada does not state that they are using the Assembly of First Nations or other cherry picked organizations to funnel money so there is an appearance of working with the Indigenous people. Canada does not say it has set up compromised Indigenous institutions in finances, economic development, or land departments that receive the billions of dollars to continue assimilating the Indian into the body politic. Canada stands regretful about historic wrongs, while perpetuating the exact same wrongs in current actions. It is the definition of hypocrisy to watch Canada point a shaky global finger of condemnation at other international colonial actions. Meanwhile, Canada is profiting off the backs of Indian kids who are in poverty or in care, Indian kids without clean water and Indian kids living in worse than third world conditions. The only difference between Trump and Trudeau is that Trump has set up border camps with cages that are highly visible. Trudeau maintains his border camps quietly on reserves away from the unseeing Canadian eyes. This is why there continue to be boil water advisories and angry councils publicly calling out Indian Affairs. The current state of the Indigenous can also be

seen in the number of state of emergencies called by reserves calling for the banning of meth or other drug dealers, and in the call for heightened mental wellness for addictions or suicide issues. This is not happening outside of Canada. This is happening across this country right now. There are continued attacks made on indigenous women. There are continued acts of systemic racism and failures in the justice system to bring closure to incidents like the death of Colten Boushie. Federally Canada tried to institute a “framework” that would resolve all the issues surrounding the indigenous. The framework was legislating apartheid. The framework was another attempt to subjugate or control the Indigenous through program dollars while offloading constitutional responsibilities to the provinces. Out west the descendants of settlers have gone so far as to propose separation from Canada while they fail to recognize that Canada only exists as a result of historic treaties which shared the land and resources. This message is not being taught. As Alberta put out the Wexit cry following the federal election, First Nations responded with laughter. The land would revert to its original “owners” before it would come under some wing nut province bent on subsidizing a dying industry. First Nation people are not all the same. So a one size solution will never work. This is true for any kind of legislation. It will not fit some or many First Nations. Truth and reconciliation calls to action called for changes that would alter the system. The truth is that these changes will only come from outside these institutions. The institutionalized colonialism that functions today in Canada continues to oppress, assimilate and terminate the original people. The solution is not in this government. The solution is in reclamation of our original indigenous ways of knowing, living, respecting and living in global harmony so that there will further decades in all our futures.

Applications open for Indian day schools compensation CANADIAN PRESS

TWO ROW TIMES

OTTAWA — A long-awaited program to provide financial compensation to survivors of Canada's Indian day schools is now open for applications. Under the terms of the settlement, survivors can apply for individual compensation for harms linked to attending one of the federally run institutions. Nearly 200,000 Indigenous children attended more than 700 Indian day schools beginning in the 1920s, often enduring trauma that in some cases included physical and sexual abuse. Crown-Indigenous Relations expects thousands of Indigenous people from across Canada will be eligible to receive federal cash from this settlement. All eligible survivors

will receive a minimum of $10,000 in individual compensation, while those who experienced more severe cases of abuse will be eligible for additional money. The settlement agreement, which was approved by the Federal Court last August, also provides $200 million for community-based projects to support things like commemoration, health and wellness programs, ``truth-telling'' events and efforts to restore and preserve Indigenous languages and culture. The not-for-profit corporation McLean Day School Settlement Corp. will administer this funding, and is currently working to develop guidelines and procedures for organizations to follow in applying for grants for these projects. The rules for this fund will be made available in the coming weeks.

Crown-Indigenous Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett says the settlement is an important step toward healing and justice for day-school survivors and their families. ``This agreement demonstrates a comprehensive approach accomplished by working with survivors which cannot be achieved through court processes,'' she said in a statement Monday. ``Working with their representatives, we have made sure that as well as compensation, the government of Canada is making important investments to ensure access to support for healing, commemoration and culture for the survivors. ‘' The Indian day schools operated separately from the residential-school system and were not included in the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement approved in 2006.

ACLU sues school district over 'bloody Indian' comment By Susan Montoya Bryan, The Associated Press ALBUQUERQUE — The American Civil Liberties Union of New Mexico on Wednesday sued the state's largest school district and a former teacher over a 2018 incident where the teacher allegedly cut a Native American student's hair during class on Halloween and asked another student if she was dressed as a ``bloody Indian.’' The ACLU's complaint against Albuquerque Public Schools and the former teacher, Mary Jane Eastin, contends she created a hostile learning environment and discriminated against McKenzie Johnson, who is Navajo. The group also claims the school district failed to properly train teachers and provide for student safety. The lawsuit follows discrimination charges filed in May 2019 with the New Mexico Human Rights Bureau by Johnson. The school district denied the allegations and the bureau did not reach a determination, clearing the way for the lawsuit. The case is aimed at establishing a clear precedent that New Mexico's anti-discrimination protections extend to students in public schools, said Preston Sanchez, an

attorney at the ACLU of New Mexico. It also seeks unspecified financial damages. ``Not only must we ensure Native American students feel safe behind school walls, but we must also do everything in our power to ensure that they are treated with the dignity and respect they deserve,'' Sanchez said. School officials declined to comment on the case. Eastin has an unlisted phone number and it wasn't immediately clear if she had an attorney. The school district's superintendent issued a public apology after the allegations emerged and told parents that Eastin would not return to Cibola High School, where she taught English. School officials said later that Eastin's employment with the school district ended in 2018 but did not disclose if she quit or was fired. They also saidthey would address racism and cultural sensitivity at all schools in the district. Leaders from the Navajo Nation had called on the district to provide cultural sensitivity training. While they described the teacher's acts as part of a ``Halloween stunt,'' they said one teen's parents told them it was traumatizing. According to the law-

suit, Eastin had dressed up as a voodoo witch on Halloween and planned a game for her advanced English class in which she asked students questions and then rewarded those who answered correctly with marshmallows and gave dog food to those who answered incorrectly. The lawsuit states that

at one point, Eastin approached a Native American student and asked her if she liked her braids and then allegedly cut the tip of the girl's hair with scissors. Eastin also was accused of then asking another student, identified as Johnson, if she was dressed as a ``bloody

Indian.'' The girl's mother later told reporters her daughter was dressed for Halloween as Little Red Riding Hood with a red paw mark on her face. The ACLU contends in the complaint that Johnson's reputation was harmed and that she suffered personal injuries, including emotional

distress. Johnson has since recounted her story during school board meetings and at a Native American community forum hosted by the school district. She has said more needs to be done to address cultural sensitivity in Albuquerque's schools.

Gown by Indigenous designer shines brightly at Golden Globes By TRT Staff Canadian representation was minimal at the 2020 Golden Globe Awards, so E-Talk correspondent Lainey Lui decided to attract eyes the red carpet. On Sunday, she wore a custom dress that accented her mid section with sleeves that flared past her hips. The custom gown was made by an Anishinaabe and Mohawk fashion designer, Lesley Hampton. The gown turned heads among the celebrities and correspondents on the red carpet at Sunday's Golden Globes awards in Los Angeles. By wearing the gown, Lui brought global exposure to Hampton. But this isn’t the first time she’s been in the

spotlight: Hampton is based in Toronto and has shown collections at Indigenous Fashion Week Toronto, Vancouver, London Fashion week and the Santa Fe Indian Market. The title and collection was inspired by a quote featured in the preface of the final report of the national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women: "We must know our past, understand it and accept it, if the future is to have meaning." In anticipation of being on the red carpet at her first and possibly only Golden Globes, Lui said she wanted to make the experience memorable and meaningful to look back on. Lui expressed her pride

WINNIPEG — On January 3, Métis artist Jaime Black sculpted six figures out of snow as a reminder of the rates of violence against indigenous women. Her sculptures can be seen lying or stretched out on the river trail in Winnipeg. Vying for dialogue and discussion, Black explained that although the sculptures aren't permanent, she hopes that they will start a discussion about what can be done to increase safety for Indigenous women and girls. She drew inspiration from the REDress Project, one of her own outdoor community art displays, which tapered red dresses from trees in cities across

CALEDONIA - Haldimand Rivercats Pee- Wee House League defenceman Nevayah Powless has a strong passion for playing hockey. Following a strong performance on Sunday, January 5th in what was an 8-0 loss at the Haldimand County Caledonia Centre against the Flamborough Falcons 1, Powless replied, “It’s hard to explain.

different and it’s good.” Reflecting on what her team did well against Flamborough, Monture was quick to respond, “We skated a lot. And had good passes.” Echoing those same thoughts was Powless who commented, “We passed more than usual.” In terms of what they still need to work on Powless replied, “Communication.” The Rivercats were getting stellar goaltending but couldn’t prevent Flamborough from exploding with five first period goals in taking a 5-0 lead heading to the second. Despite not scoring, Haldimand had some strong performances including the defensive duel of Powless and Monture. “Nevayah’s ability to read the play is phenomenal,” Rivercats coach Katie Gorman said. “She sees the play develop and can

take control.” Meanwhile playing like a seasoned veteran was Monture who had some solid defensive plays. “Kali’s made a huge improvement,” Gorman

said. “She’s reading the play well and gaining confidence.” Haldimand got some early chances in the second as Ryleen Davis just missed before Flamborough responded with consecutive goals as they went on to celebrate a victory.

Despite not getting a win, the Rivercats came off the ice full of smiles including Powless who has some ambitious longterm hockey goals. “I want to play hockey at high school and college,” she said.

Six Nations Midget LL win first two Intertown Southern Counties games NEIL BECKER

TWO ROW TIMES

OHSWEKEN - There are a lot of reasons for Six Nations Midget LL fans to be excited about these days. Heading into Intertown Southern Counties, Six Nations found their grove as they began their championship quest by winning that first game 4-3 against the Simcoe Warriors 2, before most recently pulling out a 2-1 decision at home

against the Tillsonburg Tornadoes. “We played well defensively,” Six Nations coach Russ Hill said. “Our goalie played great and the kids were happy.” Looking to build off that opening Intertown Southern Counties win, Six Nations returned to the Gaylord Powless Arena where on Saturday, January 11th, forward Trentyn McCauley scored the eventual winner in their 2-1 win, which improved their playoff record to 2-0.

Six Nations Midget LL has improved their playoff record to 2-0.

“We played hard and played good defence,” McCauley said. “They (Tillsonburg) were playing fast.” An old-fashioned goalies duel was shaping up in the first as Six Nations goalie Terrence Jamieson made several highlight reel saves. Meanwhile Six Nations had chances including Owyn Smith and McCauely just missing golden opportunities of what was a scoreless game heading to the second. “We still have to improve in the defensive zone

and stay out of the box,” Hill said about what Six Nations still needs to work on. Early in the second Six Nations generated some early chances as forwards Sterling Smoke and McCauley were robbed from point blank range. Not long after Six Nations succeeded in killing off a couple of penalties, they had reason to celebrate as Smith used his speed in pulling away and scoring on a breakaway for a 1-0 lead after two periods of play. In what was a wide open third period, Six Nations had another breakaway as Matthew Hill just missed minutes before Tillsonburg scored to make it a new game. Showing strong character Six Nations quickly regained the momentum as McCauley skated down the wing and snapped home the game winner 13 seconds after Tillsonburg tied things up. “I just shot the puck,” McCauley said about the goal. “It’s (getting the winner) pretty exciting.” Yes sir, these are good times to be a Six Nations Midget LL fan.

HAGERSVILLE - The Six Nations Bantam Reps had chances but couldn’t solve what was a hot Hagersville goaltender. Opening their first round OMHA playoff series on Monday, January 13th at Hagersville Arena, Six Nations ended up hitting a couple of cross bars and generating lots of shots in what was a 5-0 Game 1 loss against the Hagersville Hawks. “They’re a good team,” Bantam Rep goalie Ashlee LaForme said. “We have to capitalize on our chances more.” LaForme, who made a variety of highlight reel saves on this night went on to add, “They’re a fast team and we just have to stay out of the penalty box.” LaForme made her mark early when 90 seconds into regulation she made a huge save in making a statement. Shortly after Six Nations had a couple of

hunted down a lose puck in Hagersville’s end before setting up Dayton Jamieson for a one timer which was denied. Hagersville, who had a variety of power plays on this night, managed to score a third period goal as they went on to celebrate a pivotal Game 1 of their best of five OMHA first round playoff series.

power plays where they got some chances with the best coming from Devan Lickers who was robbed twice from the slot. As time began running down in the first, Hagersville scored the eventual game winner which came on the power play with 3:10 remaining to give them that all important 1-0 lead.

“In the first period we were strong. I told the team, that was one of the best periods we played all year,” Six Nations coach Neil Anthony said. “Our goaltender made some big saves and we had momentum.” Early in the second, right after Six Nations forward Marc General was robbed in the slot, Hagersville re-

sponded shortly after with a huge power play insurance marker. Riding the momentum of that second goal, Hagersville applied some heavy pressure and despite some more big saves from LaForme, managed to score a couple more as they were fully in control after two periods of play.

It was a rough game for Six Nations but their coach says they will PHOTO BY NEIL BECKER be working to win the next one.

TWO ROW TIMES

HAGERSVILLE--- St. Catharines Shockwave forward Layne Smith has simply dominated the competition. Following up his four goal, six- point debut which came on Saturday January 4th in a 16-6 road win against the Toronto Monarchs, Smith a week later provided some more magic. Getting into an early groove Smith entertained the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena crowd when on Sunday, January 12th he had an eight- goal performance and nine total points in what was a 14-11 loss against the Peterborough Timbermen. “I think just taking my

opportunities when I see them helped,” Smith said. “I had the hot stick early and my teammates just kept feeding me the ball.” When asked if that was his first eight goal performance Smith responded, “I’ve scored eight goals twice back in 2017 with the Rebels.” Making an early statement Smith had two first period goals while Cody Menzie added one as the defending ALL champions Shockwave took a 3-2 lead into the second period. Continuing to fill the net, St. Catharines started the second with consecutive goals from Gates Abrams with an assist to Smith followed less than a minute later by Smith completing the hattrick.

“I think we moved the ball well and had great offensive sets,” Smith said. “We obviously have a target on our backs as defending champs.” With a little over five minutes remaining in the second, Smith connected again with his fourth to give the Shockwave what would be a temporary 6-4 lead. Going on a run, Peterborough managed to tie things up at six heading to the third where in less than a two- minute span they connected once again for consecutive goals in taking their first lead. “They work hard, not to say they’re not good but we were missing some key guys due to injuries and other commitments,” Smith said about Peterborough. “I

think we would have come out on top.” Smith scored his fifth goal in making it a one goal game but the Shockwave couldn’t build off that momentum as Peterborough answered with consecutive goals which saw them firmly in the drivers’ seat holding a 10-7 lead with one more quarter remaining. “I think once we start clicking and get our lineup concrete, we will be okay,” Smith said. Refusing to slow down, Smith’s scoring exploits picked up steam in the fourth as he scored three more goals but that along with a goal from Chaunce Hill wasn’t quite enough as the Shockwave ended up falling short in weekend play.

Hagersville Hawks extend torrid winning streak NEIL BECKER

TWO ROW TIMES

HAGERSVILLE--- Clearly it was quite a statement made by the Hagersville Hawks. Showing that commitment towards winning a championship, the Hawks approximately a month or so ago got that much more dangerous as they went out and officially acquired high scoring forward Sandy Porter. So far, Porter has made the offence more lethal with his last multiple point game coming on Sunday, January 12th where he scored a goal and added an assist in helping the Hawks with their sixth straight with a 4-2 road win against the Port Dover Sailors. “We acquired him from Norwich (Merchants),” Hawks G.M./Coach Todd DeMille said. “We watched him last year. He skated at our summer camp and we wanted him on our team. He has a great shot and is a threat on the ice.” After sitting out Saturday’s 5-1 win at Hagersville Arena against the Dundas Blues, Porter returned against Port Dover for what was his 10th game in a Hawks uniform which with that two- point game has seen him score two goals and six points. “I started out this year

The Hagersville Hawks had a sixth straight win against the Port PHOTO BY NEIL BECKER Dover Sailors.

at French River (Rapids), then went to Norwich then Hagersville,” Porter said. “I was an AP last year (with Hagersville) so I knew them (players). It’s pretty exciting playing here. It’s where my cousins played and it’s great to follow in their footsteps.” Heading into weekend action third overall in the Provincial Junior Hockey League Overall Standings, Hagersville gave fans plenty to cheer about on Saturday night against Dundas. Grabbing some early momentum, the Hawks scored 43 seconds into regulation on a goal from Harrison Larochelle before Dundas responded approximately five minutes later with the tying goal. It wasn’t until the second when Hagersville took control as they celebrated consecutive goals less than a minute apart

from Peter Cappucci, with an assist going to Tycie Cowan, followed with only 15 seconds left in the period by Ralph Taggart which gave them a 3-1 lead heading to the third. “Everyone is working hard, and we’ve found a way to win,” DeMille said. “Working on consistency. Keeping the pucks deep and sticking to the system.” That definitely worked in the third as Hagersville once again shut out the Dundas shooters while scoring two more goals from Luke Erauw and Brendan Judson on the power play as they cruised to their fifth straight win. After finishing the weekend with a win in Port Dover, the Hawks are only one point behind the Glanbrook Rangers for second and three behind the Grimsby Peach Kings for first overall.
